LSU fan who went to UGA
Obviously my username says it all, however I made the decision this morning to stop lying to myself and root for the tigers as my #1 team.

I grew up in BR a mile away from the stadium, moved to ATL when I was 12 and ended up going to UGA. My freshman year LSU lost to UGA 44-41 (Mett vs. Murray classic) and I was cheering for LSU the whole time on the inside.

Last year I went to BR wearing red and black with LSU boxers on. I was cheering for LSU on the inside and was very content with the outcome.

I'm starting to realize that the only reason I've told people I'm "50/50" when it comes to UGA and LSU is because I'm worried about what people think because I am a UGA alum. But it is out of my control, I love the tigers and everything about LSU sports more than I ever will with UGA.

What do y'all think about this? Anyone stuck in a similar situation?




EDIT: For the record, I HATE the Falcons. Every year I've lived in Georgia I've hated them more. The biggest bandwagon fan base in the country. Nobody gives a sh** when they're below .500

I’ll be at the Univ of Idaho soon and then hopefully Washington State after that.

I’ll always rep as LSU as #1

No sir. Sorry, but I cannot say that I have ever been a fan of any other team except LSU. I only watch pro ball to root for former Tigers. But I am glad that you come to realize that there ain't nothing like our Tigers.

I'm from Texas and was a diehard aggy fan growing up. My big bro let me go to a bunch games with him and I'll always cheerish those memories. But, I went to LSU so A&M can suck it. Root for whoever you want though.

I just feel like there's something different about LSU. Like if I grew up a UGA fan and went to LSU I'd probably root for LSU. The whole culture and atmosphere just does't compare to anywhere else.

Ikr. I’ve rooted for other schools for various reasons but I’ve only ever been an LSU fan.

I love watching my wife from western North Carolina experience the culture surrounding LSU. It is something that those of us who grew up in BR and around LSU take for granted.

I'm in the opposite situation. From North Carolina originally, went to LSU for grad school, and here I am. It really is a whole different atmosphere at LSU, it's why I make a trip to BR every fall.

Good for you.

Personally, I don't think I could pull for someone else over my alma mater, but it's your choice. You do you.

There’s nothing wrong with cheering for LSU when we play UGA.

One of my roommates grew up an Ole Miss fan. He’s an LSU fan except when we play Ole Miss. So it goes the other way, too.

You and Todd Graves have similar UGA/LSU stories, nevertheless

I saw him at his tailgate for LSU / Bama and he was wearing purple and gold. Does anyone know if he cheers for LSU over UGA?

You don't say... How did you make such a difficult decision when it came to your sports loyalties?
