I have had some heated discussions recently at work on the merit of rooting for the SEC in bowl games, NCG, non-conference, etc. It's a good discussion and an argument worth having. Most of us here are capable of nuanced reasoning and will have caveats to our position. Nonetheless, come down on one side or the other. Are you a root for the SEC guy or not? 1. Definitely not. I'm a Tennessee fan and generally hate or dislike the other teams in the conference. I've rooted against the SEC team in the last five national championship games. 2. I'm not opposed to cheering for the SEC, just don't do it indiscriminately. I hope Alabama and Florida lose every game they play, and I evaluate the others on a case-by-case basis. I have more to say, but i'll let y'all discuss.
