Big Ten: yes. NFC North: no.

I always cheer for Big Ten teams when they're playing teams from other conferences, like in the NCAA Tournament or the college bowl games.

Kind of hard to be enthusiastic about that right now - the bowl games, I mean - considering how Big Ten teams (except Iowa) are getting thumped in every game, but still. It's like supporting the home team – they're in our conference so I cheer for them.

But: I feel absolutely none of that when it comes to pro football. I'm watching Philly-Minnesota right now, and I'd rather poke myself in the eye with a stick than cheer for the Viqueens.
