Who is your second-favorite Big Ten team?

It's Northwestern, but I was thinking of saying another team - you know the one - & seeing if I could set a down vote record.

How to determine your second favorite team. Special thanks to Ziplock007 for posting this. I went with the Gophers for reasons related to their hockey program.

Look closely, because the closer you think you are, the less you will actually see.

That's fantastic, and fits my alma mater (IU) perfectly.

MSU...they hate ttun too.

Ahhh, the smell of Chris Spielman's Dirty Socks...

I went with MSU, mainly because of Coach Dantonio. He helped lead the Buckeyes to a championship, so I'll always root for him unless he is coaching against us.

Don't like the wording of the question ,as usual. I have a horror story to tell about each. But my hatred for Minnesota goes far beyond anything I can muster against any of the other Li'l Eleven soon to be Th-hurt-teen. Buck'em all! GO BUCKS!

I wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then.

I made Appalachian State an honorary B1G member after cleaning the scUM from the win column. I'm picking them. Northwestern is my second choice. I think they've done a great job building the football program.

An angry fan...rooting for an angry team...led by angry coaches

I hate them all equally except TTUN. I hate them more.
Not understanding all the warm fuzzies for NW and Fitzgerald and the character of his program blah, blah, blah. Hope we pound them good. That'll build some character.

I can say I like Northwestern and still be fine with throttling them tonight.

Today Minnesota is my 2nd favorite team. Hopefully they win by a score of 77 to zero. Whoever scum plays, their opponent is my 2nd favorite team.

I have some family in Minneapolis and really like the city so I went with them.  Normally I might say Northwestern, but we are playing them today so no way I can like them.

Well, being from OH and having lived in MN for a long time, I picked the Gophers. This is a terrible mascot, a bad but improving team, and ugly colors, but they really never hurt anyone . . .

Tell that to Luke Witte.

I have to go with Neb because of their fans but that was after i had already voted with out really thinking much about the poll. And that is only because i have a dislike for all the Teams other than MY BUCKEYES other than TTUN which i can not and never will care for and no one else even come's close.
Now PSU would be the next one up with their high and mighty winning with honor BS all these years only to have it all come out and still not everything came out that Joe Pa covered up.

I hate them all but I hate some more than others.

I grew up in TSUN and went to MSU because out of state tuition was to much for me and my parents to make happen back in the late 80s. So I always root for Sparty except when tOSU is smacking their azzes all over the field or court! You got to love Sparty because they have such a healthy hatred for scUM & they get it! But I do give my Sparty friends a lot of crap and even more now that they hired The Walrus to be O Co-ordinator.

Because they wouldn't let me go for 3!

Ohio State's basketball team.

We have filled the Braxton Miller position.

This poll parallels much too closely a phenomena born of ignorance in the south in one SEC. I'll not be led by the sheep ahead of me, I root for THE Ohio State University. The only reason to pull for any other team is if their victory helps the Bucks, otherwise they can all kiss my ass.
B 1 G!   B 1 G!   B 1 G!.....please bros, that shit's reserved for those mouth breathin', knuckle draggin' toothless blackwater billy's in the south...I'll not participate.

Agreed BUT the other conference teams need to be good enough to help get tOSU ranked high enough to make it to the NC game.  That will still be a relevant factor beginning next season when we will have the four team playoff format.

Wisky.  Love successful old school ground and pound.  Woody gives two thumbs up.  Plus Jump.

I like Nerdwestern but I hope we throttle them tonight.

Nebraska for sure.

TTUN's opponent.

I'm kinda digging Maryland, as a future B1G. 

ScarletNGrey01's picture

I voted "Other", I certainly don't hate them all equally (TTUN and in second place the cult valley school is tops on that list) but don't really have a second favorite team.  Root (sorta) for those other nine schools when they play their OOC games and bowl games.

I don't them all equally, I have a special kind of hate for that team up north. But there are a few exceptions for some B1G teams, I'll cheer for Northwestern on any other day but today. I kind of like Nebraska, there fans are pretty classy. Other than that, the rest of the B1G teams can go kiss my arse.

Totally misread the question and thought it asked which team is your second favorite to hate...

Second favorite B1G is probably Northwestern. Gotta love the nerds plus Fitzy seems like a standup guy.

Scotch: It may be too early to drink it, yes; but people it is never to early to think about it.

Nw...but I often root for Sparty for some reason

TheBadOwl's picture

Nebraska and (future) Rutgers, I suppose. Also, I know I'm supposed to hate Wisconsin, but I really like Andersen.

When I walked in this morning and saw the flag was at half mast I thought, "Alright, another bureaucrat ate it." but then I saw it was Li'l Sebastian. Half mast is too high. Show some damn respect.

I like Northwestern. Not really sure why, maybe it's because I like seeing programs that used to be a joke do well. Of course I want the Buckeyes to win by 50 tonight, but any other game, I'll root for NW. 

...and Michigan still sucks.

Nebraska - pretty classy program except for the coach
