How about on the Bison Sioux statewide football and basketball games. It was pretty clear where Mr. Sweeney's loyalties were, very exuberant after a big Sioux play, pretty somber after a big Bison play.

Pat Sweeney is no worse than Ed Shultz, Dana Mock and Steve Hallstrom were/are when it comes to the Bison. That's why during the Sioux-Bison games, they would put one broadcaster each from WDAZ and WDAY; to balance out the biases. When it comes to this rivalry; it's UND vs. NDSU, Grand Forks vs. Fargo, brother vs brother, husband vs wife, etc. There isn't anyone in the state with an unbiased bone in their body. I don't think that will change once the rivalry resumes.

Sweney pulls for the Sioux no more than Fox Sports North hockey guys (Frank the Rug and Doug Woog) pull for Goldie.

Heck even on neutral games Mazooker & Wooger will pull for somebody. When they do the final 5 they always pick a team to root for.

But unless the game is on a national network, most announcers are local guys who will put a little more into their teams announcing.
