    I always felt OU was pretty arrogant but that probably has more to do with the coach.

    Re: most pompous team in the U.S.

    I think there are probably 10 teams that all fit into this category, but most of them have the history to back it up.

    For Nebraska to even make it into the discussion is quite an accomplishment on their part.

    Way to go, Huskers!


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.

    Re: most pompous team in the U.S.

    Football: Nebraska & USC
    Basketball: North Carolina, Duke, and Kansas

    But all of them have the history to back it up, although Nebraska fans are living somewhat in the past.

    There's really another category of fans -- those who aren't quite as pompous, but who look more foolish because they have an unrealistic view of their teams as "elite". Those are:

    Football: Iowa, Clemson, Texas Tech
    Basketball: Georgetown, Marquette, Utah


    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: most pompous team in the U.S.

    Iowa is barely in the top 10 I think. We are just skewed because we deal with them on a regular basis. There are far worse.

    1. Notre Dame
    2. Nebraska
    3. Clemson
    4-6. Florida, Florida State, Miami
    7. Ohio State
    8. Penn State
    9. Michigan
    10. Iowa

    All my troubles have been with Kansas State and Oklahoma fans, besides Iowa.

    Re: most pompous team in the U.S.

    You need to clarify if its the fans or the players.
    Big difference....usually.
    I'll combine the 2 factors.
    Back when I played...The worst were OU,UN and of course UI.
    20 years later..I'd say tOSU...USC ...and UI.
    (UI=hawks for you uneducated folk)

    Excessive intake of alcohol, we all know, kills brain cells, but naturally it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers.

    I always have thought OSU and KSU fans are like ISU fans when experencing them. Kansas fans are had to deal with as well as Colorado fans.

    Several of the teams above have multiple championships and college HOF student-athletes. With those teams in mind, I think being pompous comes with the territory...
