Anybody who tries to tell you that you can/can't root for a certain team is an idiot...and their opinion is automatically invalid. I'm an e-resident all-Cleveland fan...and I'm (mostly) well respected here. Don't be an asshat, and you'll get the same.

Penn State is probably the biggest NCAA team to root for...but you'll get enough of the other teams (WVU, OSU, Pitt) that you should be fine with any of it.

Personally, I don't see a reason to change allegiances, hehe...but I'm also a bit biased.

Good luck with your schooling bud!

Welcome aboard!!

There are a lot of Steeler fans who root for non-Pittsburgh teams in other sports so that doesn't matter. And I haven't been able to hate the Browns since 1995...that scumbag Modell took the air out of that rivalry.

Welcome in to the Steelers fan base if you should so desire. In Pittsburgh, Football is usually Penn State/Pitt for College Football, Pitt for College Basketball. WVU gets a fair amount of support though. You'll have to get back to me on Ohio State.

As stated previously, nobody can tell you who to root for. If you want to be a Steelers fan first...and then a Browns fan, that's your choice. The reasons for your fandom have been made clear. Fan of Cleveland because family is (when the lived here for 2 years.) Fan of Pittsburgh because you will be living there.

I have multiple teams I root for in the NCAA (OSU, WVU, Navy)...and they go in a specific order.

It would be natural for an Irishman to root for a team owned by the Rooneys.

Mr Rooney took his team to Dublin in 1997 to play the Chicago Bears. That was one of my favorite Steeler memories, and I still have it on tape.

This team is a family business that has retained the "flavor" of the Rooneys down through the years. We all embrace the Rooneys and the Steelers as if they were our family. The order of things in Pittsburgh is God, family, Steelers.

So come and join this family of Steelers fans that goes back generations, and is all over the world. But, fair warning. It'll "get into you".
Where in Ireland are you from?
