        Assuming the rest of the college football world falls off a cliff competitively (it’s already happening tbh). Which team would you cheer for if the rest of college football went away?

        I’ve always been partial to Georgia to be honest. I feel like Whitt would be a perfect fit on their staff… I am also a bit of a UF fan for some reason. Always liked their uniforms.

        I would never cheer for: Michigan, tOSU, Bama, or Auburn

        If I had to pick a B1G team to cheer for it would be northwestern or Wisconsin probably.

        I’d just find myself cheering against the teams I hate instead of becoming a fan of another team. Greed will destroy CFB. Maybe one day after all the ratings have plumeted and e-sports are king we can get back to a regional conference alignment that makes sense and restores the real rivalries. 

        Teams I hate to the depths of hell.

        1. Penn State (they should have been given a decade long death penalty for enabling and facilitating child rape) 

        2. (tie) Ohio State (fan base), Alabama (fan base/Saban)

        4. Michigan

        I’d probably go back to be an Ohio state fan. I grew up around there for a decade before moving here.

        I’d just stop watching CFB. I already don’t watch the SEC as it is.

        During the covid year I found myself cheering for Florida as the Utes weren’t playing. The reason being Brian Johnson was OC. If I had to choose now, maybe Iowa. I like their style of play although this year may be different. They’re always tough and not an easy out. I wouldn’t choose one of the big schools like OSU or Bama.

        What if the only conferences left were the NCAC and the NESCAC? Who would you support, then?

        Wabash and Williams for me.

        Michigan without a doubt. Best away game/away fan experience I’ve ever had.

        I could never be a Penn St. fan. In addition to the whole child rape thing, their fans were complete dicks at the NIT championship game. They were even trash talking my kid (who was 10 at the time) in the concessions line. Screw Penis St.

        I guess Georgia because I like their style of football. Basically it is Utah on steroids.

          My thoughts exactly. Replace their current HC with Whitt and they are the same exact team.

        None. The FCS games would be more attractive, and the upper level SEC/Big 10 would just become minor league pro football.

        Wife went to Iowa, so I’d be a Hawkeye fan. I generally like their style of football (outside of this year…)

        I would have to go with Florida, always kind of liked them and it was a fun college city to visit now as well. To bad they had to put up with Urban for a few years.

        I have a buddy who went to Iowa and we always talk about how great it would be to get a series between Utah/Iowa. He’s actually become quite the Ute fan and thinks the Utes play a very similar style to Iowa which I agree.

        If I had to choose an SEC team I would go with Auburn because of Bo Jackson.

        None, I didn’t go to any of those schools. Anybody can go put on a Bama or Georgia or Ohio State uniform but it certainly doesn’t take an ounce of courage or pride to do that. I see enough “fans of convenience” where I live and most of them strike me as desperate in life for a win anywhere they can land it.

        If I couldn’t have pride in and stand up for my Alma Mater I wouldn’t do the dang thing at all.

        Probably Wisconsin… or possibly Oregon if they moved as part of the reason the rest fell apart

        For me, I would just skip CFB and spend more time on the NHL and our local team.  Hockey is always my first love and have really gotten with the Avalanche over the last few years.

        If moving to B12, or a P12 with San Diego and Fresno added, Utah my be comparable to to Penn State and Georgia, within these conferences. Every year and chance to win, with a chance to go to the future CFB playoff. Otherwise Arkansas and Minnesota, considering recruiting, instate fan support. Otherwise I root for Wisconsin.

          San Diego would have some growing pains, jumping from the PFL to the Pac-12.

        I am also a bit of a UF fan for some reason. Always liked their uniforms.

        Me too. Although I am a bit hesitant to be a UF fan based on the many reports I have read about how some of our fans were treated poorly while at The Swamp. However, I don’t want to paint with a wide brush and make too many negative conclusions based on a small minority of their fanbase. So, with that, I will stick with Florida as being a team I would root for.

        If the football world becomes more of an oligarchy due to these conferences I still won’t be rooting for them. I may even start watching lesser conferences more. Georgia’s practically a pro team right now but their games are going to be boring blowouts until they face Alabama or are in the playoff. I’d rather watch a competitive game between anybody than a game with them in it.

        Current or future?  Future SEC, Oklahoma.  I know there are plenty of haters.  People who hate success 😉   BigTen, the Badgers, or if I’m looking for an underdog, Purdue; always great to see them play the role of the spoiler.

          As I spent a lot of years attending Utah, I could never possibly have the same interest and passion for any other college team than I do for the Utes.  A Utah Man til I die.
