    Also it's rare that I root for a SEC or a Big 10 team when they are playing non conference foes.

    I don't have a whole conference that I don't like, just a certain coach and a few individual teams.

    FWIW in the Ohio State/Georgia game my dislike of Smart and respect for Don/Stu tipped it to rooting for Ohio State.

    Hey Terry sometimes something about someone just rubs you the wrong way. A lot of successful coaches are not that likeable.

    I'm rooting for TCU but they are Notre Dame in 2012. They had a magic season and came from behind numerous times but now the rubber meets the road. I expect Georgia to have a night similar to Alabama.

    I made it to dead center of the pack.
    I consider that an accomplishment since I hardly watched any ball this year!
