I don't get into the whole conference pride thing like some of you people, but Miss St. has some pretty loyal fans - especially baseball - considering their overall mediocre athletics history. It'd be cool to see them win it. That game against Indiana last night was pretty wild.
Just out of curiosity, why not?
Some people want MSU to win, because it's a conference winner. All I know is I don't want LSU or North Carolina to win. Other than that, I'm fine with whatever.
If I had to pick a team, I'd go with the Hoosiers for a few reasons
1- It could help increase the popularity of college baseball in the midwest/big 10
2- Indiana winning would have almost no affect on us recruiting-wise
3- It would force their fans to begin asking why football isn't as successful as the other sports, possibly encouraging them to put more funding into football and making them more competitive in the big 10. I get tired of seeing Wisconsin and Ohio State at the top every year
No UNC and no NCST. Beyond that I can handle any of them winning. I'm leaning to MSU because they are a loose, fun team to watch. They remind me of our title teams a little. Not as "talented" supposedly but a team of characters that is having fun.
Because the SEC is already well established as the best athletics conference, especially in football and to a lesser extent baseball. That perception isn't going to change anytime soon. So at this point, SEC teams not named South Carolina winning championships just means they'll be tougher to recruit against... and given our close proximity to these schools and the numerous recruiting battles resulting from that, I see no real benefit of conference pride.
If we start losing recruits to B1G, Pac12, etc. schools because high schoolers think those are better conferences to play in, maybe I'll change my tune.
I believe that we are going after some top baseball recruits from the Indiana area so I do not want Indiana to win it for that reason and since they are in the arrogant B!G. No to UNCheat (the most) and NCSU too since they are too close geographically and in the EZZ. I want SEC dominance and would prefer MSU over LSU. I think I could stomach UCLA and OR State if I had to.
Pulling for IU on this one, but I think they blew it last night. Did my Masters there, so I pull for them if we are not playing them.
I hate most other SEC teams. I am pulling for Indiana, or Oregon St.
Just as long as Bama is not in the CWS. If they won a NC in baseball, we would have to declare Alabama a separate country, because those people would be completely unbearable.
Ally will beat the crap out of Uga.
Thought before the season ended they were peaking.
They have exhibited confidence and getting the breaks. Not the best team but intangibles are swinging their way.
Yes,I am pulling for them.
Since they left their cowbells home (no choice), I am rootong for them.
I dont really care. Was pulling for Louisville, but they are out now.
Conference loyalty is stupid imo
We are FAR more likely to be in a head to head battle for a recruit with UNC or NC St than we are either MSU or LSU. Plus, all things go in cycle so I think it's best if SEC keeps on winning as long as it can be sustained.
There is nothing wrong with being proud USC is a member of the SEC, but pulling for other teams to win championships simply because they are in the SEC is ridiculous.
You will never see me pull for KY to win in basketball, or generally for Ga/Bama/Florida/Tenn to win in football, although I hope Ga beats Clemson this year in a 6 overtime slugfest.
I am pulling against UNC in the CWS. I don't want Miss St or UCLA to win either, as both teams annoy me to no end.
Beyond that, I do not care who wins.
I disagree, and I posted on the MSU board a wish of good luck. they to a man were appreciative.
I did the same on the LSU site, one of the first replies was that of course they were going to win the whole thing
LSU has a legit reason to be cocky. but this leads to their disregard for any other fan, even when I offered sincere good luck
I think its a good thing for the SEC to win the CWS all the time. I am fully convinced we will be a part of that equation, no reason not to be.
in fact I think I will go back & kudo them again. when football season arrives, different story
A rising tide raises all ships..
I, too, will be wishing LSU much luck in football especially when they play the butt sniffers and gay turds.
I am. SEC.
Fear the beard
I was sold when I saw the part about a Player giving a power point presentation on why they should all grow beards
Miss St or NC St for me
I have no problem with MSU winning in Omaha. We rarely recruit head to head against them for anyone. I actively root against North Carolina schools, and to a lesser degree any other ACC schools. I actively root against the schools we recruit against regularly like Clemson, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Florida, Tennessee, etc.
It certainly doesn't hurt us in baseball when another conference foe wins the championship. Our recruiting isn't going to suffer as a result.
If MSU makes it to the championship game and they have their Kenny Powers look-alike closer in the game, bottom 9th, 2 outs......I'd die to see him strike out the batter, throw out the hand gun, pull the trigger, and say "You're F****** Out!"
