Teams your parents hate, but you don't.

Kinda slow in the offseason, eh? Question for you tide fans. What are some teams that your parents hate but you actually don't (or have a slight affinity for)? For example...my dad HATES Notre Dame (media love, costing Bama championships), HATES UAB (money/resources/recruits that go there should/could go to T-town), and hates Georgia (fans were always annoying back in the day).

I understand his reasoning, and I empathize to a degree. BUT, I appreciate ND's history and simple uniforms. I love St. Patrick's Day (and all the wonderful drinks the Irish have given us), even as a Protestant I appreciate some of the RC liturgical elements (I know ND isn't Ireland, but I enjoy the connection). Yes I want those championships, or at least to have played against them to have a chance, yes I hate it that they have such a good record against us. But whatevs, ND is kinda cool to me. Athens, GA is a great town with a great local culture. All the Georgia fans I've met have been cool, so I have no really animosity towards them. Most days I don't mind the Bulldawgs winning at all - they hate UT and UF as much as we do. Even UAB...the little engine that tries. I love the Ham, played some great parties for UAB students (was in a band while at Bama in a former life), and hell...the Blazers - gotta appreciate the mascot (although they probably should just shut the football program down, heh). And it's a great Med School. So again, whatevs. Go Blazers.

Thoughts, stories, concerns? What are some teams that make your list?

Just for the record, my top three non-Bama football teams I find myself consistently hoping they do well but have no real reason to care are Penn State, Nebraska, and Kentucky.
