The old chant for us Illini (and other Big Ten teams) fans goes...
O How I Hate
O Hio State
Tonight for the hoops championship stupid Florida, who has won the last basketball title AND football title plays stupid Ohio State, who I spend an inordinate amount of time hating.
I have heard many, many times over the years how I am supposed to be a Big Ten fan, because that is the conference that houses my beloved Fighting Illini.
Well, I have finally had enough.
I am going to publicly state once and for all that I am proud to say I would rather see teams from other conferences succeed then see teams like Ohio State win national titles. I was sick to my stomach when Ohio State won the whole shebang in football a couple of years back.
I especially hate the Buckeyes and, of course Michigan. Conference loyalty doesn't do squat for me! It doesn't help the Illini get one decent recruit or land one good jump shooter. I spend the whole football season HATING all of the other Big Ten teams, and it is time I started hating them in the post season too.
Just saying what all of you are thinking...
