This poll should have a third or fourth option. I love Coach Smart but I find myself rooting against his team. For instance last night I was a little miffed when they called the foul on Taylor but then I pumped my fist when Hield nailed the game winning 3.
I used to live on the Panhandle of Texas and I never liked UT athletics.
The easy way out would have been Choice #3--"Conflicted". Like you AlienAiden, I like Shaka and want him to do well but part of me doesn't want the team that took him away to do well which is contradictory. It is kinda like when fodu is playing someone and you know it is best for VCU for them to win and you try to cheer that way but when the other team scores you celebrate because you just hate odu. (actually, I have only cheered for them once and that was in the post season 2011 for conference reasons and I recall that it did't sit well at all. I think it resulted in serious health issues only resolved by our FF run)
So, after my ramble I admit that I did't vote because I am not sure what is the honest answer. Perhaps I don't want to admit to myself that I am being small and cheering against them.
