    BYU Most Unintelligent Fanbase

    I think everyone can agree there are some pretty uninformed fan bases about the rules of basketball, but during the game the booing seemed extremely excessive. Now you also have people calling out Kane and Ejim as thugs. I know some of those are Iowa people and BYU also has an extremely large fan base but it seems worse this time.

    Iowa State is one of the more selective schools. We are biased which is natural but last night and now seems to be on a different level.

    Wtf? Stupid thread is stupid.

    BYU acts like every other fan base on earth - frustrated after a close loss.

    What do you expect? It's a arena full of virgin, decaffeinated white folks.

    They're mormons so they can't curse. They make up for it with excessive booing. Not a big deal.

    Re: BYU Most Unintelligent Fanbase

    The point of the fans is to get into the head of the opposing players and try to get the refs on their side by continuously hounding them. I thought they did their job. The fans were definately in our players heads...look at Ejim, our failure with the press, and missing free throws down the stretch.

    They were great CBB fans, and they did what I hope we continue to do to every team (not named Iowa State) and referee that steps onto the court at Hilton.

    Re: BYU Most Unintelligent Fanbase

    Not stupid at all. I thought they supported their team in a similar fashion to what we would do. And high emotion and bias does cloud judgement, which is 100% normal for fans anywhere.

    The signs and bigheads in the student section were very mormon.

    I loved the venom they spat. It inspired me. We need to eat UMKC alive.


    “They're very, very hard to guard,” Notre Dame head coach Mike Brey said. “They're really good. And with Niang in the middle kind of wheeling and all those guys spreading you out, they're kind of a nightmare matchup. And they're men. They're really men.”

    Re: BYU Most Unintelligent Fanbase

    Yeah I get what people are saying just think there was an extreme amount of booing specifically on the Kane foul and now you have people calling him a thug with Ejim. I thought in general they were good but theres an awful lot of negative attitude over that call that I think is completely uncalled for, and I've seen people saying they were yelling the N word which set of Ejim. Other than those things I thought they were pretty good but there seems to be way to much focus on the Kane foul which didn't really warrant an ejection let alone jail time.

    The point of the fans is to support their team and help them win. BYU lost = Crowd fail.

    I was hearing quite a bit of swearing in the background of John Walters call from about the 5 minute mock until the end of the game.

    That said, you also don't have to be Mormon to be a fan of BYU, so it could have been anyone.
