If TCU were joining the SEC next year, we would all clearly be rooting for Kentucky. That's just the way the SEC works- they all root for their conference brethren against outsiders. The MWC had a bit of that, and obviously I think most of us would be cheering for UNLV or San Diego State had they made it this far.
But I'm not so sure that's the way things go in the Big 12. Correct me if I'm wrong, but the rivalries between Big 12 teams seem to be such that they always root against one another- even if they're playing for a title against a team from another conference. I don't have anything against Kansas in particular, other than their arrogant and nerdy fans, but I would also bristle at the thought of being put in a position where I had to root for Baylor or Texas or Oklahoma.
So are you pro-Kansas because of the Big 12 connection, or anti-Jayhawk for just the same reason? Does the thought of watching slimeball John Calipari raising the trophy make your skin crawl, or are you in a position to win some cash depending on who wins tonight's game?
