What non-ACC programs do you like or hate?


Frobby

Recommended Posts

Favorite teams:

George Mason – My favorite team, where I went to school.

Georgetown – Been a huge Hoyas fan since I was 7. They’re right there with Mason.

Teams I’ll root for:

Baylor, Dayton, UAB, Robert Morris, Kent State, Wichita State, Creighton, Austin Peay

Teams I hate:

Villanova, West Virginia, VCU, Texas, Purdue, Penn State, Florida

I’ll root for VCU when they play OOC opponents.

Hey Frobby, just curious, why not include the ACC? Is it because most people on here are ACC fans? I need to include one local ACC team on my hating list.:D

Just didn't want to get into a "why I hate Duke" thread. I've read enough of this message board to know that if we did a poll of most hated team, Duke would have 5-10 times more votes than the 2nd place team.

Loyola (alma mater) and whichever MAAC team gets into the tourney. I'll also generally root for other Jesuit schools (eg Xavier).

My other alma mater is Columbia, which is usually laughable. But I have always liked Penn and Princeton, which tend to be competitive (Penn moreso). And I love watching a Princeton offense no matter which team is running it, if they're doing it well. Dates back to the 1996 Princeton/UCLA game for me. Despite the low score that was one of the most exciting sporting events I've ever watched.

Like Georgetown and Villanova despite them recruiting in MD.

I have most of the same dislikes as everyone else here. Calipari, Huggins. Don't really care about Calhoun that much for some reason.

I'm neutral on Kansas.

Teams I hate:

Villanova' date=' West Virginia,[b'] VCU,[/b]

Hey, come on now! :D

It's all good though, because I hate Mason. But like you said, I will cheer for Mason during OOC.

Teams I love: VCU. Born and bred a Ram fan. My dad, mom, and older sister went there and all of my close friends went there as well. I went to community college so VCU was basically my adopted school. Plus I started going to VCU basketball games when I was 5.

I also will cheer for Tubby Smith. Tubby was assistant head coach at VCU in the late 70's to mid-80's, so I like seeing an old Ram do well. That being said, I like to see Jeff Capel and Anthony Grant do well at Oklahoma and Alabama, respectively.

Teams I hate:

Old Dominion - big rival of VCU; I won't even cheer for them during OOC.

Richmond - VCU's neighbor and rival, used to be a conference rival until Richmond went to the A-10. I can't stand UR or their smug fans. They're a wanna be Ivy League school so their elitist attitude is unreal.

Likes:

Generally schools that I believe expect their athletes to uphold the same academic standards as the rest of their student body, so programs like:

Stanford

Ivy League Schools

Army

Navy

Dislikes:

Notre Dame (Carryover of my dislike for their football program)

UConn (Dirtiest program in NCAAB, IMO)

Too many other dirty programs/coaches to mention, but people have hit on most of them.

Did you go to the NIT game? I heard that Cliff Ellis was trying to get the "Cliff Dwellers" from his days at Auburn to come out and support Coastal.

I did not. I was at work plus the W&M game was on later that evening and I didn't want to miss it. I'd go to the NC State/UAB game on Saturday evening, but I'll be in DC. If they make it to the quarters, I'll probably go next week if it is not Tues or Thurs night (going to see a couple indie shows those nights).

When I say that I consistently attend their games, I mean that I went to three this year. I plan going more often next year.

    • And Ramon Urias as well. Urias might eventually get squeezed out or turn into a backup, but he's been a vital part the last few years while we've been waiting on prospects to make their way up the farm system.
    • I’ll now answer my own question.  Even though these three players are theoretically equivalent from a run differential standpoint, I would not want the player who’s -10 on defense.  That’s because I believe that poor defense bothers pitchers, causes them to try to do too much, and demoralizes them.  So maybe the fielder isn’t “responsible” in a WAR calculation when the rattled pitcher serves up gopher ball or walks the next guy after a poor defensive play, but there’s cause and effect there IMO.  So, give me someone who plays at least decent defense.   And, I think the Orioles feel the same way.  
    • Really!? It's called baseball? Thanks for letting me know!   They are going to lose more games than they win when the starting pitcher has a sucky night. They can't score ten runs a night. The thread is about discussing Grayson Rodriquez's pitching. Just saying his performance doesn't really matter is incorrect and an uninteresting take. 
    • Exactly. If you go down a list of the leaderboards of velo leaders and note all their injuries, there’s a lot of them. But if you instead just take a list of all 30+ year old pitchers and sort it however you like, I don’t expect it’s going to look all that different. 
    • Aram loves the pitch metrics on Povich and McDermott. Was effusive in his spring podcast going through Os top prospects. 
    • Let’s also give the org credit for the O’Hearn pickup.  He was part of last night’s lineup.  For that matter, they picked up Mateo too.  
    • Thank you.  Not sure how easy for someone who may have been doing it for years and someone who’s been talented enough to make it work.   Someone posted a video of Freddie Freeman and Holliday to show similarities but, to me, it just showed how different their lead foot was.  Freeman’s was closed and perfectly in line and parallel to his back foot.  Hollidays foot pointed out and the foot towards 2B position.  I questioned it.  Other guys, who admittedly know more, said it was no problem.  Again, he might be able to become a HOF with those mechanics.  I’ve just never seen a good ML hitter hit that way. From that early January thread “I guess it depends on your definition of “step in the bucket”.  His stride foot definitely doesn’t go straight.  Pretty easy to see where his foot is in relation to the batters box and how much further away it is when it lands.  It doesn’t seem to affect him negatively though.  Interestingly enough, Freeman’s stride foot goes perfectly straight.” Edited January 6 by RZNJ
