    KU Fans

    I know a lot of people loathe KU fans and their basketball team, yet the vast majority rooted for them in the NC game.

    After reading a post by sevenyearhawk instead of studying I went to KUsports.com and was pleased to see that alot of Jayhawk fans hold us in high regard. I have never met a KU student I didn't like and always appreciated what their athletics brought to the conference.

    An interesting read.

    Re: KU Fans

    I think for most people this is an example of Conference Camaraderie (a phrase I am now looking to trademark).

    While Big XII teams, and especially Big 8 teams, may be our bitter rivals in conference play, when it comes to intraconference play -- national postseason matches in particular -- there's no question that I'm going to root for them. At that point they are representing the quality and class of the other eleven teams, and their success is linked to the recognition of the others. I hold a high level of respect for the teams in the conference, and Kansas is probably at the top of that list.

    Not that it keeps me from grilling my KU friends. Although it's been a couple of seasons since they didn't have a good comeback.

    They like us because we are innocuous. This would change if they started a wrestling program or we became competitive in anything else.

    Re: KU Fans

    I think most KU fans either have a healthy sense of fear or respect for ISU. We did give them a scare during the TF and LE earas. Not to brag but we do have THE best fan base in the Big XII if you weigh support versus success.

    Re: KU Fans

    Their fans are terrible! You can't reason with them at all I get to deal with them on a daily basis. In Kansas City MU, KSU, NU, ISU and Iowa fans all have one thing in common they can't stand KU fans. They really think they are better then you. They won't consider ISU a rival at all even though since the start of the Big 12 ISU has more wins against KU then any other big 12 team and ISU has 3 wins in Allen Fieldhouse and the rest of the big 12 has a total of 4. Most of them also get really ****** off when you mention Tinsley or Stinson's names it's funny. Plus a good number of them consider North Carolina one of their main rivals even though they have only played 3 times in the last 20 years.

    Re: KU Fans

    I like KU fans a lot. They really pull for the Big 12 and they hate Mizzou and KSU, so they have no problem rooting for us.

    Re: KU Fans

    I work with a KU grad (hasn't missed a televised KU Basketball game since he was 11 and at a funeral), needless to say he's had a good year...

    I've also got a good friend from KU with whom I went to grad school. We actually initially became friends since we had the Big XII in common. (He was wearing a KU shirt an I was wearing a Iowa state shirt on our first day of grad school). Trouble is, that damn near everytime we've played KU since I've known him (the last bball win being the exception), they've beat us, in both football and basketball. It hasn't been much of a rivalry as of late.

    I think it's a case of "Nobody beats up on my little brother, except me!" going on here.

    Re: KU Fans

    KU fans are on roids - they have big heads. Other than that, they are fine.

    Re: KU Fans

    Here is my experience with KU fans. One on one, and people you know, no problem, fine people. Get a bunch of them together, and you have trouble. Most of them are as bad as college fans can be. Period. Sat by some at the basketball game this year in Hilton. KU was by far the better team, no question about that. But the officiating was horrible. The Kansas fans I sat by seemed to think it was just fine that KU didn't have a foul called on them in the first 13 minutes of the game. In my eyes, they are tied with CU fans for worst in the conference. Give me Mizzou or KSU fans over them anyday.

    Re: KU Fans

    I'll root for KU (or any Big XII team) in the nonconference or in bowls or the NCAA tourney. I do think that their fans that travel are a little obnoxious. There's no reason to sing rock chalk at an opponent's arena, that is going overboard.

    Re: KU Fans

    KU fans are annoying. Their basketball fans are obnoxious and boo every foul called against them regardless how obvious it was. Plus the rock chalk Jayhawk KU chant has to be one of the most annoying things any school does. Their football fans were almost non-existent until this season. Best sign I saw at the KU game was one of their fans holding up one that said something like "KU football: a tradition since 2007"

    Re: KU Fans

    KU is probably my favorite team in college basketball other than ISU of course. I never thought their fans were cocky even though they had every right to be.

    Re: KU Fans

    Ruined my night by looking at this thread . . . you've got to be kidding me . . right? KU has some of the most obnoxious basketball fans in the United States . . .they think their crap doesn't stink. If they are paying you a compliment it is because they are on a good run against ISU. Sooo please stop the love fest.
