I can intellectually convince myself to root for the B1G but something happens at an emotional, visceral level when the game begins and I find myself cheering for VCU, Iowa State and Temple.
I would love for the B1G to have 4 teams in the final four but it is almost impossible for me to cheer for a team that I have hated for 20 years.
Go Temple fuck IU

IU is the only conference team, other than scUM of course, that I am rooting against... Can't stand those f'n floppers!!
Yeah I hate the Big Ten yet I want it to be recognized.
It would be much easier to stomach if UM wasnt involved. Same thing happens in bowl season. I hate most of the Big Ten teams but dont like the national bashing.
The hatred is noted but it does'nt help the overall cause. We need the B1G to do well in football and the tournamanet here or we will continue to be looked at as a second tier Conference. Sometimes that means sucking it up and hoping that teams we hate win....The after effects....recruiting...personal recognition..may make things tougher on us but it just means we have to find ways to rise to the occasion and overcome whatever adversities are thrown our way.
Agreed. It's nice to be able to boast about playing in a great conference... but aside from MSU, the only teams I can cheer for in basketball are Northwestern, Minnesota, Illinois, and Nebraska. Everybody else I have various degrees of dislike or pure hatred for.
