    hilarious comparisons

    obviously this is insanely exaggerated (just look at Michigan or ND), but its still hilarious to read

    I guess when they think north, they think New England. I think Midwest and Rust Belt fans are just as rabid.

    "perfect 3-part harmony"?!! What, do half of their men sing soprano?




    Part of this fanbase is like the parable of the blind men and the elephant.

    Who knew?

    Down South: When you're near it, you'll hear it. On game day, it becomes the State's third largest city.
    Apparently Nebraska qualifies as "down south"

    Up north: Class and integrity.
    Down South: Recruiting scandals.

    Also 20,000 seat stadiums?
    Are they basing MAC stadiums as the "standard"?
    If that's the case then I'm basing the south off of Sun-belt capacities.

    Re: hilarious comparisons

    By north they clearly mean New England. Iowa (both for the Clones and Hawks) is much closer to what that guy calls "South" even though we're definitely "North" from a geographic sense.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    exactly. here is a dumb quote by Mack Brown "to say that the south is faster than the north is a fallacy, USC is as fast as anyone". Why is it a dumb quote? Because if you look at the map USC is at the same latitude/longitude as the university of Georgia. So USC is definitely a southern school.
