    This. I can never understand why somebody would root for a school that they didn't go to. It might be one thing if you live in a state with no pro teams and/or you didn't go to a school with competitive teams. But either way, I see College Park as more of a DC area school. Most people who live in the area are pretty big Redskins fans.

    If anything, I think that Towson should be the official college team of Baltimore.

    I've never understood why people feel the need to be a fan of the team that's closest to where they live, or a only a school where they went to.

    Your post just answered your own question. There are no hard and fast rules about who you should root for and why. Perhaps someone is a fan of a player and chooses to root for the team despite never having set foot on its campus. Perhaps you root for a school because your father graduated from there. There are many reasons and many scenarios to consider. This applies to both the collegiate and professional level.

    And October
    Im sorry but I've been so focused on Ravens and the playoffs and SB I forgot about the O's.

    They made a deal for someone?

    Can you fill me in on the details. I thought I heard on radio O's just robbed someone again
    via trade?

    Thanks in advance.

    Maybe it's because Maryland is the only team around that plays against teams on a national championship level all season long. They are a big D1 school. Except for Loyola or Hopkins in lacrosse, Baltimore simply doesn't have the universities that are going to be playing against the big boys.

    Maryland might be in the DC area, but it has plenty of appeal for people all over the state.

    I root for MD because it is Maryland's flagship university within our state university system. Besides, what the hell am I going to root for from Salisbury? D3 lax?
