This should have been the first thread, actually, as the previous iteration wasn't meant to offend.

If you're a fan of a particular university, especially if you identify strongly with this institution, why?

Note the "primarily." For example, if you live in Norman, OK and have a degree from OU, yet are a fan primarily b/c of the former, well, then...you understand.

What if I'm not a fan of a particular university?

I use "we" only when referring to Northwest Missouri State University. I am an MU fan because of region, but they are easily a secondary institution to me.

I've been a fan of Notre Dame since I was a little kid. I always wanted to go there.......just never got the chance to attend.

I LOVE TCU! Not just cuz I got my degrees there, but other stuff that I won't mention or it would reveal to much personal information.

The ladies of the University of Iowa have been very kind to me. So I pledged my allegiance to their sports programs.

I'm a USC fan because I'm a bandwagoner. /Mecca

I went to University of Buffalo. I'm a fan of the teams, but there's not much opportunity to be one because I almost never see them. Mostly I root for Syracuse because, growing up in Upstate NY, they were the team I saw all the time.

Since I have transferred around from college to college like herpes from a whore.. I would say I don't have too much staying power in this discussion. However growing up in Fort Worth I will always root for TCU, and because of family ties I will always root for KU.

Both. I live in the town now, and I went to school there. I actually was less of a fan while in college and grad. school than I am now, though. I didn't really care for organized sports that much when I was actually attending college.

My brother lives in Lake City (about 35 miles north of Gainesville). But, I cheer for Auburn since my 2nd oldest graduated from there and the school I went to (U of West Florida) doesn't have a football team.
