I grew up in the southern half of the fine state of Illinois and as long as I can remember I have lived and died with what we called "Illiniwek Nation" where the Fighting Illini were always the talk of the town. I moved to Florida in 2006 and all I heard about down there was the mighty SEC and ACC.
