re: How many people here truly only care about Alabama football?
I closely follow football and basketball.
I catch the results of other sports, occasionally will watch postseason games/matches.

I am an alumnus.

I don't watch much other sports, other than NFL (mainly for fantasy), some NBA playoffs, some World Series, golf majors.

The alum part was to see if there was any difference in responses from alums or nonalums. That was all, no turning up the nose here.

Well,I had a little meltdown the other day on the rant about FOGs because these 2 FOG idiots I work with were rooting for Auburn and it really pissed me off.

And if anybody on the rant says"who cares at least if aint football" I'll drop a courtesy GFY

re: How many people here truly only care about Alabama football?
I want Bama to do great in all sports. However the only two I pay actual attention to is FB and basketball. I’ve never really liked baseball in general.

USA alum

Don’t really watch the NBA but definitely a lot of the NFL including obviously the Saints.

1-It's is the only sport where I am largely familiar w/ player names, positions, etc.

2-Yes, made a conscious effort to do so.

3-Outside of college football, I'll watch a little tournament basketball if it's at the end & compelling. Can't name 30 MLB & NBA players combined. Don't care about NFL. Although I think it helps our team during recruiting when our former players do well in the NFL, I absolutely refuse to follow recruiting. While I understand its importance, it isn't for me.

re: How many people here truly only care about Alabama football?
(1) When it comes to Bama sports I'm 80% football and 20% other sports.

Generally, I never was a big fan of the game of basketball, so I'm a casual fan (I've watched a total of two games of the NCAA tournament over the last 5 years).

I check in on the other sports from time-to-time.


(2) Class of '98


(3) Grew up in Pittsburgh, so I'm a fan of all of the teams there.

If I had to give a breakdown of where my attention goes to sports it would look like this:

45% Bama football
25% Steelers
10% Penguins
10% Pirates
5% Bama Basketball
5% All of the other stuff (Tennis, F1, Soccer, Rugby, NBA, college basketball, etc.)

Makes sense. If I was doing mine it'd probably be

Bama Football 25%
Braves 25%
Bama basketball 20%
Falcons 10%
Hawks 10%
Bama Baseball 5%
Other 5% (Bama softball, Atlanta United, Bama everything else)

re: How many people here truly only care about Alabama football?
My problem is basketball... It's like I think this is the year.

1. Preseason I am hyped
2. Early season tournament disappointment, I say same old team
3. Early SEC play... This is the year!
4. Late SEC play... Don't deserve to be in the tournament
5. SEC tournament... We should be in!
6. NIT... Might as well watch

(1) Do you only care about Alabama football and really not care at all about other sports that Alabama competes in?


Pretty much. I'm glad to see when they're doing well but I can't say that I'll ever invest any significant amount of time/emotion into them.

quote:

(2) If the answer to #1 is yes, are you an alum of Alabama?


Yes

quote:

(3) If the answer to #1 is yes, do you like other sports professionally or do you just only like football?


I also like the NBA, though I tend to be pretty up and down on it. ~5 or 6 years ago it was a close second to Alabama football. That's slowly shifted to where I only loosely follow the NBA now. I've been feeling like I'll probably get back into it over the course of the playoffs though.

I follow the other sports. But they're not appointment television for me. I'll watch men's hoops or softball if I'm in the house and it's on.
College football is the best sport out there.
