No... you are not understanding what my point is.

He is one of those who say the SEC fans root for other SEC teams besides their own in bowl games...

That's what he is doing. he's rooting for another Big 12 team besides his team. My point has nothing to do with TAM being in the SEC.

Says a LOT more about the overrated SEC.

No, you're still missing the point. He's not rooting for the Sooners because they're in the Big XII. He's rooting AGAINST A&M (regardless of conference affiliation) because he can't stand 'em. (And that's saying a lot given how much the Horns hate Sooners and vice-a-versa.)

Savvy now?

Semantics...

Regardless of the reason or EXCUSE for rooting for another team... He's still being hypocritical.

But I guess in that part of the country, the definition of words change when its you versus someone else doing things...

pot meet kettle...

Hypocritical?

Hogwash, I just don't like A&M.

The fisherman is correct.

I guess when you chant for your conference about as much as your team, you just don't quite understand the level of dislike some of us have for our rivals, huh?

Me, I love every minute of watching Washington getting whooped, be it SEC, B1G, Big 12, Communists, Aliens, or my neighbor next door who lets his dog bark at all hours.

Your reason doesnt justify or excuse the action... You are rooting for another team in your conference. Yet, you have repeatedly said YOU do not do that... That's the crux of the matter. Which is hypocritical.

Do I need to post the definition of hypocritical, or is your Longhorn education good enough for you to understand?

It's funny how such bitter rivals as OU/TX fans are always on the same side on this forum... hmm.

This is an extreme exception to the usual Longhorn rule - and the fisherman stated the intention very clearly.

Otherwise I don't root for anybody besides Texas.

You can puff up with self-righteousness all you like, but frankly I just don't care.

Yep. I get it. Well said.

Just like I'm hoping K-State wins. It's not because they're in the the Big 12, it's because I like to see UO get beat. Doesn't really matter who they play.
