    Re: Top Ten Most Obnoxious Football Fan Bases

    That is interesting.... All those teams have a reputation for winning... Hmmm..Why no mention of the Hawks or Huskers??

    In all honesty Huskers should be on that list for previous accomplishments.

    could be right on all of them. I didn't know clemson was that bad. And if EIU was nat, they would be on it.

    Re: Top Ten Most Obnoxious Football Fan Bases

    I could see leaving Iowa off (not enough name recognition) but little suprised the Huskers aren't on there..


    Oh we will fight, fight, fight for Iowa State,
    and may her colors ever fly!!!

    Re: Top Ten Most Obnoxious Football Fan Bases

    Oh yeah, Clemson is that bad. They think they're better than the best SEC teams like Florida, Georgia, and LSU, but they almost never even make the title game in the lowly ACC.


    Gene Smith, 1993-2000. 7 years, 6 NCAA's, 1 bowl game. Revenue sports postseason participation 50%. Good.
    Bruce Vandevelde, 2000-20005. 5 years, 4 bowl games, 2 NCAA's, 2 NIT's. Postseason participation 80%. Better.
    Jamie Pollard, 2005-. 4 years. 1 bowl game, 0 NCAA's, 0 NIT's. Postseason participation: 13%. The next big step.

    My ignore list: splitidentity, tarheelhawk,superdorf, clones_jer. That is all.

    Re: Top Ten Most Obnoxious Football Fan Bases

    Hard to argue with any of those on the list...but I agree that Nebraska and Iowa would fit very nicely.

    Re: Top Ten Most Obnoxious Football Fan Bases

    There is no way Iowa would have made it. I think something like 60% of east coast high schoolers can't even find us on a map (ok, I'm not really sure about that, but you get the point). Agreed with every call, maybe would have swapped Clemson for NU. CU would be high on my list as well, but like Iowa, the lack of name recognition keeps 'em out.

    Re: Top Ten Most Obnoxious Football Fan Bases

    Some of those descriptions would fit Iowa's and Nebraska's fan bases, but the schools on that list have huge fan bases and a big national following. Iowa's and Nebraska's fan bases are too small and are completely unknown outside of the midwest.

    I have noticed a change in the attitudes of Michigan fans this year. They seem to have finally come to the realization that yah you really do suck.

    Re: Top Ten Most Obnoxious Football Fan Bases

    I don't think Husker's fanbase is too small and midwest... Everyone knows who they are. I'm thinking the National Championships in the 90's and one in 2001 (?) is still relavent enough for the common fan.

    Hawk fans though??? No way in at all. They act like they are that big, but they haven't won enough on that stage to get the recognition.

    Re: Top Ten Most Obnoxious Football Fan Bases

    I live in Maryland... Hawks don't have the name recognition to be on the list.

    I'm sure I'll get someone jumping on my back for that but sorry... to most of the country the state of Iowa is a punchline to jokes in movies about being in the middle of no where (even if that discription better fits Kansas...)

    FLORIDA: "They live in the past and never shut up."

    Huh? Maybe it is just my imagination, but hasn't Florida had a pretty damn good run in the "main" sports here recently?
