How about I answer it this way? The most likely schools to burn couches after a win(or loss) is Ohio State, Michigan State, and once in awhile, Penn State.
Nebraska football fans have some similarities to Kentucky basketball fans, so I'm going to predict you guys will do battle with them.
I've always irrationally hated Michigan more than any non ACC team. So them.

Michigan is probably my favorite Big 10 team, Ohio State, PSU and Indiana are my top 3 and I dont see that changing.

Ooooooh, Purdue is a sleeper candidate. I look forward to facing 42 year old, 9th year senior Robbie Hummel.

First and foremost, let's get this out of the way from the get-go -- we will NOT be using B1G. It's Big 10 or B10. Get that stupid ass B1G shit outta here.
I think you guys will find you will hate Ohio State more than EVERYBODY other than possibly Penn State and Rutgers. I realize you have a history with Penn State so that won't be overshadowed, I don't think. And obviously NJ/Rutgers are right there within reach of UMD - and I've read on here that many UMD students are from NJ - so I ASSume there will be some heatedness there. (I actually know 2 ladies from NJ that went to school at UMD.)
But Ohio State... Man, many of their fans think they should win EVERYTHING and think that they are superior to EVERYBODY. You may not believe me and you may not care. But in time you will understand. It will get under your skin and you will likely soon develop a hatred for them whether they choose to acknowledge you or not.
As an FSU fan I hate Duke (dook?) for their basketball arrogance and flop-iness, but as a human being I hate Ohio State for their perception of themselves. You guys are likely unfamiliar with how the U. of Florida fans/alumni act in Florida, but imagine Duke if they had NO in-state competition to put them in their place. Imagine if they were a HUGE state university. THAT is Ohio State. OSU fans are generally good people, just arrogant pricks that will piss you off.
I personally think you guys will grow to love/hate (in a good way) the Big Ten. I just think it's inevitable that you will hate Ohio State close to as much as you dislike your PA and NJ neighbors.
I think you will more than hold your own in most sports other than football. AND, if you have decent injury luck I think you will be fine in football. As I've seen others mention in other threads, schools like Northwestern, Purdue, Illinois and Iowa have represented the Big Ten in the Rose Bowl. Hell, you guys made the BCS about a decade ago, too. You'll be fine if you put money towards supporting your program and I think Edsall will be a good coach for you over the long haul (ah, shit, let the downvotes begin for this last comment).
Sounds like NC State
UPS only for now, let rest play out.
Don't sleep on Nebraska. Every NE fan I've met has been a delusional fan boy.
here we go with the couch burning cracks and michigan state again.....that never gets old...
anyway hope maryland has fine looking women... if you want the least good looking in the conference you just need only to go to ann arbor.....
go look at the ups scout board. they make 9/11 conspiracy theorists look rational
As a Michigan fan, I feel compelled to make a case for Ohio State.
Ohio State - Have you ever read a sentence on this site and wondered if the person was drooling on their keyboard? Have you ever met someone that you think might sleep in a ditch? Have you ever talked to someone who made you instantly look for their nearby caretaker? If you've answered yes to any of the aforementioned questions then you've probably met an Ohio State fan. For those who still have their innocence, you'll recognize them quickly by the smell of chewing tobacco and stale sweater vests. If you see them simply avoid eye contact, sudden movements, and words that you didn't hear on reading rainbow. They'll invade your forum(usually in all caps), your stadium(like cockroaches), and your personal space(without showering). At Michigan, we appreciate the nuances of hating Ohio State. If you need help looking for reasons to hate OSU just ask any nearby Michigan fan and I'm sure he'll be able to accommodate you. This has been a public service announcement.

IU and Purdue folks are both rubes, like most of Indiana and the midwest. But they are nice, smart, and not cynical folks, unlike the jaded east coasters.
I have no beef with big ten folks except for penn state folks that make the "big move" to DC and have to show off their meatheadedness at DC and NOVA bars.
MICHIGAN MEN are insufferable
2. Bo Ryan. Great coach, unwatchable basketball.

None. We are the nation's best conference. Glad to have the Terps on board.
He really liked shrimp. And weed.

Welcome to tB1G!!!
We have a collection of some of the best football and basketball coaches in the country and a collections of some of the worst officials in the country. You'll love it here.
As far as fan bases goes:
Friendly fans: Nebraska, Iowa
Pretty cool fans: NW, Wisconsin
Douchey fans: PSU
Crazy delusional hick fans: OSU, MSU
No fans: Purdue, Minny, Indiana, Illinois
Evan Turner won it in 2010.
INDIANAPOLIS college basketball player of the year. The 6-foot-7 Turner, who averaged 20.3 points, 9.2 rebounds and 5.9 assists, received 54 votes from the 65-member national media panel.
You will hate Penn State the worst. Just wait until you attend a game and get bags of piss and full cans of beer thrown at you.
The real question should be which fan base will hate us the most? NC State I think had that title
and I already hate PSU and if their stadium burned down at full capacity I wouldn't call it the nations biggest tragedy ever.

ALL THE SCHOOLS WHOSE FANS' USE PICTURE SIGNATURES IN THEIR POSTS, PROBABLY
