    Also called fan

    Do you live up to the term? After reading the Hoops board on rivals, these questions are killing me. Can you be a fan if you leave a school to root for a coach? Can you really be a fan of a COACH and only root for a team because of him?
    I bleed S&G period, whether I'm right or wrong, like the coach or hate the coach, win 1 game or win a NC, I still root for the S&G and I will always hate the team up north on the last Saturday in November. I do want them undefeated when we play, is this wrong? I feel it is our duty to: Not only vanquish the evil team but to PUNISH them for playing us. Am I wrong here?

    Where do you draw the line? What are your convictions?

    I don't condone NCAA violations-ahem,Obie, or illegal schenanigans by the players, but other than that, i support OSU thick and thin. I would not support Tressel at a new school if he left for, say, Kansas State. Your loyalty is to the school-Tressel understands that-why else would he have the guys sing the alma mater.
