    Rate your favorite/worst conference members

    With 1 being most liked and 9 being loathed.

    1. Oklahoma State - Fans are for the most part humble and similar to our fanbase.
    2. West Virginia - Pretty much indifferent about this fanbase.
    3. Baylor - Fans are surprisingly arrogant with little amount of success they've achieved.
    4. Kansas State - Used to be higher until I saw their forums.
    5. Kansas - I've gotten the vibe that they are Iowa from the south.
    6. Texas - Arrogant but funny at times.
    7. TCU - Kind of indifferent, but I heard the fans were huge dbags when ISU went to the Houston Bowl.
    8. Texas Tech - Fans just seem crazy.
    9. Oklahoma - Arrogant.

    Kansas State- Same as you Jukebox
    Texas Tech- indifferent towards them
    WVU- Know nothing about them but they like burning couches
    TCU- Again know nothing about them
    Oklahoma- Do not want.

    Re: Rate your favorite/worst conference members

    Based on my own personal experiences:

    1.Oklahoma St. - no problems
    2.Baylor - no problems
    3.Texas - arrogant, but no problems
    4.Kansas St. - starting to get worse
    5.West Virginia - never had any prior experience, put in the middle.
    6.Oklahoma - arrogant
    7.TCU - complete ******** near me for the Houston Bowl
    8.Texas Tech - unreasonably arrogant, weird
    9.Kansas - unreasonably arrogant, still think basketball is more important, even during football season.

    Again, that's just my personal experience

    Re: Rate your favorite/worst conference members

    Current
    1. Iowa State - They seem like nice guys.
    2. Oklahoma State - Humble fanbase, I see a lot of similarities with us but they are good.
    3. Baylor - Main reason: they are no existent.
    4. Texas Tech - See Baylor.
    5. Kansas State - Except for GoEMAW.com, they are pretty cool in my book.
    6. Kansas - Generally don't care about football. Valid cockiness for basketball.
    7. Texas - Money. Money. Money.
    8. Missouri - Do not like.
    9. Oklahoma - Arrogance.
    10. Texas A&M - Not one thing I like about them (plus they abandoned our conference).

    WVU and TCU, I don't really know much about. It could be a few years before I can accurately rank them.

    Re: Rate your favorite/worst conference members

    Since I don't know anything about TCU or WVU and don't want to talk about the teams full of ego that left, I am only going to rate this years conference members who will be in the conference next year.
    1. OSU - Good at athletics but aren't *** hats about it. I wish it was any other team than OSU that we took their national championship from
    2. Baylor- Used to be a doormat football and basketball but are getting better. Aren't too cocky but it could change as they get better.
    3. Kansas- No problem with them in football. Basketball, I can't stand their fans at the ISU game when the beat us in years past. Have some good looking girls tho so they get a 3
    4. Texas - Cocky but their message board are hilarious. If you have the largest athletic budget in the nation, you should be the best and deserve to be cocky.
    5. Oklahoma- The Boomer Sooner fight song is annoying so they deserve 6.

    6. Kansas State- Now that they have found some success again in football, they think they are king of the conference and feel superior to the other schools. When Bill Snyder leaves again they will go back to mediocrity
    7. Texas Tech - Complete *** hats even when they aren't good. 42-7


    ďI told you, I donít care if youíre black or white. I donít care if youíre rich or poor. I donít care where you come from, whether itís Texas, Florida, California, or right here in the state of Iowa, I donít care about any of thatÖ But what I did care about is moving forward from that day on, that we were one team." -Paul Rhoads

    Re: Rate your favorite/worst conference members

    1. West Virginia - Pat White is the best NCAA football player ever and makes Tebow look like a child pornographer.
    2. Okie State - Teach me how to Gundy.
    3. K-State - They get no respect like ISU, but the purple doesn't help them.
    4. TCU - Horned Frogs, B.A. name.
    5. Baylor - RGIII.
    6. KU - Easy win for football, however, Rock Chalk Jayhawk is dumb.
    7. Texas - Got muh mind on my money and muh money on muh mind.
    8. OU - Arrogant.
    9. Tech - Waste of space in west Texas, although I do like the whole "Guns up" oh and thumping them at home!

    I assume you missed the thread where they trolled the whole Arkansas fanbase and much of the SEC. Absolute classic. You might rate them higher after that.

    1. OSU
    2. Baylor
    3. TCU
    4. Texas
    5. WVU
    6. KSU
    7.TT
    8. OU
    9. KU

    I'm okay with every school, KU is lowest because I hate their bball arrogance, and rock chalk.

    Re: Rate your favorite/worst conference members

    1. Baylor - IMO they are the best fit for a rivalry series than Kansas State and "Farmageddon"
    2. OK State
    3. TCU
    4. Texas
    5. Kansas State
    6. Kansas
    7. West Virginia - would be higher on the list if Bob Huggins wasn't coaching there
    8. OU - their consistent choking in BCS bowl games is unbearable
    9. Tech - they were barely tolerable when Leach was the coach, but the trifecta of Tuberville, Gillispie's 3 DUI arrests* (not charges - 1 was when he was coach at UTEP and was thrown out due to lack of evidence) and an AD that was content to follow Texas during the conference realignment fiasco is why they are the "worst conference member"

    Re: Rate your favorite/worst conference members

    All I know is after going to the KSU game this year they have by far the nicest fans I have ever come into contact with. On numerous occasions, both Friday night and on game day, our group was told "thanks for coming" and "good luck" and "enjoy the game" by completely random strangers. After the game I was stopped by at least 5 different people who shook my hand and told me what a good game we had played.

    Re: Rate your favorite/worst conference members

    1. Iowa State. Easily number one.
    2. West Virginia, fans have been pretty nice so far.
    3. TCU, see West Virginia (except that they think they will come into the Big 12 and destroy everybody).
    4. Kansas, nothing bad about them.
    5. Texas, Shaggybevo is pretty fun to read.
    6. Kansas State
    7. Baylor, fans are annoying.
    8. Tech, they don't get over the fact that we steal things from them....
    9. Oklahoma. You have to hate your rivals and they play that godforsaken song anytime their team does anything! Landry Jones sacked for a safety, they play it.

    Had the same experience. Great fans.

    Re: Rate your favorite/worst conference members

    1. Oklahoma State. ISU fans with sort of southern accents and a Sugar Daddy. Freaking awesome people. I almost felt bad beating them.

    2. WVU. Always kinda liked WVU from the White/Slaton days, and their fans are so enthused about the Big 12 that it's very refreshing. I can empathize with how they are misunderstood by the rest of the nation and mocked as backwards rednecks.

    3. Texas. Best fan base I have personally dealt with at a road game. Even after we whooped 'em in Austin (when they still thought they could have a good season) they were gracious and welcoming hosts.

    4. KSU. Dirtier version of OSU. In real life they are nice people, but kind of have an inflated sense of where their program stands most years.

    5. KU. Never had a bad run in with a KU fan.

    6. TCU. Completely indifferent. Don't think I've ever met a TCU fan. Plan on going to the game in Ft. Worth next year, and should develop a stronger opinion.

    7. OU. I hate Stoops, but Oklahomans are generally great people. The handful of Sooner fans I've met in real life were very classy.

    8. Tech. I hear horrible, horrible things about Tech, but have had very few run ins with their fans, and the few I've had were pretty friendly. Fanbases 5-8 could all be tied. Very little separation.

    9. Baylor. Just terrible people. Incredibly arrogant, aloof, and unfriendly. They also don't support their team AT ALL. Texas and A&M fans are MUCH more welcoming, friendly, and pleasant than Baylor fans.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.
