Anyone else have a team they love to root against? For me it’ll always be Clemson, Florida State, BYU, Ohio State, and Liberty.
BYU, Liberty, Baylor, Alabama... used to really dislike Michigan, but I'm honestly not sure why? Maybe because I kind of liked Wisconsin?

Forgive me, but why the hatred for Liberty?

I root HEAVILY against Liberty as well. Look up Jerry Falwell (Sr. and Jr.).

BYU, CSU, SDSU, Ut State, AF, Boise, NDSU Beeezuns. I would like all these teams to lose often.

The teams I can't stand!!!!!!!!!!!

BYU (as everyone on Earth knows by now)
Liberty due to the Falwell and the fact I loathe religion
Oklahoma (they get away with pretty much anything like Joe Mixon for example - shoulda been kicked of the team ASAP after he punched a gal in public)
Notre Dame (religion)
Fort Fart
San Diego State for beating us in the 2016 MW title game

I do like Okie State only because we beat the crap outta them in 1995.

I'm extremely loyal to ALL things Wyoming.
I want CHAMPIONSHIPS not chicken Sh#t! And we're getting chicken Sh#t!!!!!!!!!!!

I don't loathe religion, but Liberty and the Falwells is enough for anybody to consider religion a horrible thing. They're downright evil.

The pool boy story is entertaining, though.

Never heard of Liberty, so I looked it up.
Got as far as "Evangelical College".
Now I see why people don't like it.

Is that because you’re a bigot?

I used to have a t-shirt that said “My Favorite Team is Wyoming and Anyone Else Who Beats BYU”. One time a guy came up to me and said “I thought your biggest rival was CSU”. I said “sure, but I’d even root for them against those assholes from Provo”. From the look on his face I’m pretty sure he was a mormon.

If I were a bigot, I would be against it because its religious. In general, I'm a "you do you" kind of guy when it comes to that.
Through observations though, evangelicals are in some ways, worse than even the die-hards at BYU, as they have a lot of political power and like to force their doctrine down everyone else's throat, while crying and moaning how non-evangelicals are ruining their way of life (when they're not).

Being from Lynchburg I always root against Liberty as well. They have a big LU on the side of one of the "mountains" overlooking the city we called the tramp stamp.

I pretty much hate any P5 school. They have ruined college sports. I'd take Liberty any day over that corruption.....

"I never saw a buckin' hoss to top Steamboat. Fact is, he was the closest thing to perpetual motion that ever wore hair. Few men could stand that kind of battering without bleeding from the nose, and most became nauseated as well. Ol' Steamboat put some of the toughest into the hospital for repairs."

You can hate any team you want and nobody's list is going to be the same, but one team should be common on EVERY ONE of these lists... CSU. I don't understand why there are some lists here without it. They really are our main rivals. We have the oldest rivalry game west of the Mississippi!

Sorry, but I don’t think that’s true. There are many rivalry games west of the Mississippi that are older. An article in True West magazine made that claim, but it is easily refuted.
