We had about 40 participants and these were the results.
Well I hope that formatting stays. So its Thanksgiving, and I am giving thanks for my right, protected by the American Constitution to hate based on sports teams and alumni met from other universities. Original was on a scale of 1-5 with 5 being most odious. New scale:
1-2 = Rooting for them
5-6 = Indifference
8-9 = I hate them
10 = reserved only for one team from among all the others. The object of your scorn.
Y'all are smart enough to use 3,4, & 7 as you deem appropriate. Put a 0 only if it is the school you attended because I am including MD for the benefit of some of our new guys in the name of Northern Aggression
We have newcomers. Polite mofos from the midwest mainly but sadly, no one from Rutgers that I have seen yet. So if you are a follower of a different school team, please indicate so and we will tally those up as well. Please use your rankings to curry similar rankings from other readers....the explanations are more entertaining than the numbers. And a word on hate - I don't mean hate as in wishing ill events to happen, I mean hate in wanting to see said team LOSE so that their fans are disappointed....and so they have to drink from your Maryland (or other) cup for the following week and are not allowed to turn it upside down (every beverage must be poured into it while at work to be consumed...it sucks to lose that one).
Expanded the candidate list from our ex-friends and former frenemies from the ACC as per your suggestions.
USC (southern cal)
MTSU (Mid Tenn St U)
USC (So. Carolina)
Add schools at the bottom to keep the formatting easy to summarize. See if you can figure out the groupings.
Regards and Happy Thanksgiving -
