I'm cheating & having 2 teams (Neither are much good)

Houston - Lived there for 3 years many times ago so always follow & support there sporting teams.

Illinois - First game I watched was on TV against Miami they lost but I liked there QB at the time so have always followed them. The Lose situation has followed them for 20 odd years which is slightly bad.

Since there a million teams it's acceptable to have as many teams as you want as long as they're not rivals

Better nail my colours to a mast sooner rather than later then!

i support the nevada wolfpack.

firstly though i supported the buckeyes. reason being seeing the horseshoe in birds-eye view and hearing a trance song that they chant along to (which i currently forget ) when i first got into CFB. but matured and grew out of them just like when i stopped supporting real madrid lol.

i always had an affinity for the state of nevada. balrog (street fighter). area 51. it's mysterious and has a lot of secrets to reveal. and just off-topic for off-season check these family explorers out:

(go to the very end and work up. class viewing)

might as well shout how i became a supporter of the michigan state spartans in college basketball. the first game i ever watched of CBB was a sparty home game at the breslin centre and mike tirico was commentating. i didn't know he announced CBB but with that and being a lion fan it just clicked. which also means i definitely have a rapport for their college football team.

it's 'monster fish' weekend on nat geo wild (sky 165).

i love nature and fishing programmes and have watched zeb hogan for ages. only realised that the N cap he wears is for nevada. don't know why i always thought the N was for Navy.

so another pro for the pack.

Florida Gators for me. First game I saw way back in 1987 when it used to be on in the early hours on ITV as an edited 1 hour highlights of a main game similar to channel 4's NFL coverage. Been a fan ever since, along with their College Basketball team. Being nostalgic I have collected all that coverage over the years and whacked it on to dvd.

Oklahoma Sooners

I went to college in the US then got my first job at Univ. of Oklahoma. On my first weekend there they took me to the first home game of the season and I met some of the players. Never looked back. That was the Sam Bradford, Demarco Murray, Ryan Broyles era.

Your not alone - 2 teams here also in Penn State and Miami Hurricanes

Penn State as they were the first team I just found myself liking and just grew towards them, especially with Barkley, and just learnt a lot more about them with Penn State Unrivaled on YouTube

Miami as the first ever college team I even knew existed (thought they were actually an NFL team when I first heard of them - I was only like 9 years old lol) and their documentary on ESPN, would love to see that team get back to the way they were in the 90s!

Good shout on this. Didn't know about it, will try and watch a few when I get time.

Been watching NFL since the days of Channel 4 and Nicky Horne, I supported the Jets in those early days.
I even went to the very first Summer Bowl at Villa Park between the Streatham Olympians and The London Ravens in the mid-80’s (featuring one Victor Ebubadeka for oldies like me old enough to remember him)

I got into college in around 8 or 9 years ago, when I subscribed to BT sport and noticed it billed something called college football on the old Espn America channel. I knew of the game, but had never watched one. So I tuned in one Saturday evening and they were showing what I believe was the first ever floodlit game between Michigan & Notre Dame at the big house. I was immediately hooked on the pageant and passion of the humungous crowd and the game was pretty good too. And that was that, I’ve been hooked every Autumn since.

I follow 2 teams. The first I picked was UCF as I’d been to Florida fairly regularly and thought that if I did get to go to a game in the USA one day, east coast would be more accessible, than either Texas or California which I had also regularly been too with work. I took my wife and daughter to the Knights v Penn State and Croke Park Dublin and that was a fantastic weekend and a pretty exciting game in the end, despite the last minute winner for PS. Been a great couple of years to be a UFC fan since that though.

My second team is Louisville. For fairly obscure reasons, both to do with my home town of Middlesbrough. Firstly I noticed on a TV game that they abbreviate the name of their city at the stadium to “The Ville”, just like we do with “The Boro”. And when I’d made that hometown connection, further research revealed that Louisville has a mini replica of Middlesbrough’s Newport Bridge, crossing the Ohio River. Oh, and they also play in red and white – just like Middlesbrough. Been a bad couple of years to be a “Ville” fan though.

As a one off I elected to support Georgia Tech when I went to the most recent Dublin game as I thought Boston College support would outnumber their fans and I like to root for what I view as the underdog as a neutral. But when I got there I realised GT fans outnumbered BC by about 2 or 3 to one. Again was a great weekend, and an OK game, despite the appalling weather on the Saturday (Friday and Sunday were both glorious)

I’ve already booked an apartment for next year’s Dublin match up and although I’d love to go underdog again, the series history would suggest that could be a hapless task. Still, I’ve got plenty of time to chose a time for that one.
