    "I care" is not really a valid response to the question "Who cares?", because "Who cares?" is not really a question.

    It is an affirmation that whatever is being discussed is lame and or stupid, and anyone who does care is dumb.

    I'd come up with some witty retort, but I just don't care enough :(

    Additionally: When rooting for your favorite sports team, unless you're on the field/court/whatever actually determining the outcome of the game, DO NOT use the term "we". The term you're looking for is "they".

    That's not really how sports fandom works.

    Yeah, I don't really understand the "we" thing RE: sports. "Your" team is a profit-making entity owned by some multi-millionaire/billionaire whose association with a certain city or region is almost entirely arbitrary (see: whoever is willing to build a stadium, give tax breaks, etc.) and often subject to change.

    A University is SLIGHTLY different.

    I guess. They're not for-profit and owned by a filthy rich dude, but many university sports programs aren't exactly the pinnacle of ethics in other ways.

    Not really, but since I am living at his house, I try to keep it to myself.

    I ask because I've supported the same football ( soccer) team for thirty years and always say we, when referring to it. It's just...natural...at this point.

    I don't. but the man who is paying my rent while I go to grad school and has identified with the same school since before I was born...I can deal with it.
