    Arrow What Big XII school has the smallest fanbase?

    I was reading the comments @ the bottom of the ESPN blog regarding the ABC game times for a good laugh. However, one of them got me thinking. It said that ISU and OK State probably had the smallest fanbases in the conference. I doubt that's true, but it did make me think. What are the fanbase sizes? I know that there are tons of variables but I'd have to think that Texas and Oklahoma reign king while Baylor (the only private school in the conference) and maybe K State are at the bottom. Schools like Mizzou and Nebby are the only big state school so they draw most of the state population, but in Nebby's case, that doesn't mean much.

    Here's my guesses.... feel free to comment/ make your own:

    1. Texas
    2. Oklahoma
    3. aTm
    4. Mizzou
    5. Kansas
    6. sCUm
    7. Nebby
    8. Texas Tech
    9. Iowa State
    10. Okie State
    11. Kansas State
    12. Baylor

    Again, this is just my guess and fanbase size certainly doesn't mean dedication. Example... Kansas (which gets a large portion of Kansas City fans... along with Mizzou) can't fill it's stadium w/ a ranked team but ISU has filled the Jack over the last few lean years.... FWIW.

    Baylor and ISU by far.

    I think ISU has a larger fanbase than KSU. Maybe in Western Kansas or something they have a lot of fans (but nobody lives out there). They are a distant 3rd in the KC area behind Kansas and Missouri, I think we probably have them beat.

    Re: What Big XII school has the smallest fanbase?

    I can almost guarantee you that its Baylor by a mile!!!!

    We were listening to the nu-baylor game on the drive over to college station when the nebbie radio announcer said that without the husker fans the stadium would be nearly empty!!!!


    Baylor would kill for our fanbase and our attendance at football games this year...er heck any year!!!!!


    Think of it this way...

    baylor attendance.. ISU attendance..

    I think CU is actually much smaller than ISU. Think about it. Smaller stadium, smaller arena, yet they are in a larger population base than ISU to draw from. TT and KState have about the same base, TT a little more. Nebraska I would put way ahead of Missouri and not just because they have a bigger stadium. Nebraksa has fans all over the nation from when they were the powerhouse team back in the 90's. MU has had some good years lately, but they haven't been able to become the powerhouse that NU was.

    Texas
    Nebraska
    Oklahoma
    Kansas
    A&M
    Missouri
    Oklahoma State
    Iowa State
    Texas Tech
    Colorado
    Kansas State
    Baylor

    ISU has a very large fan base for as poor as we have played at times.

    Really? I don't see where KState or (to a lesser extent, Okie State) would get the draw either.

    I'd have to agree with this list. I've lived all over the U.S. and have always been amazed how many ISU fans I run across. One thing's for sure though, you'll not find many fan bases with better sportmanship than Iowa State.

    Now that you said that last part, I just have a crazy feeling that we'll be booing something like crazy tonight.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Re: What Big XII school has the smallest fanbase?

    Here is my Guess, Good Start:

    TOP 4:
    1. Texas
    2. Oklahoma
    3. Texas AM
    4. NU - Picked up a lot of Fans from the 90's

    MIDDLE 4: Big Drop after NU.
    5. Mizzou
    6. KSU
    7. Texas Tech
    8. KU

    BOTTOM 4:
    9. Okie State - most people in OK are OU fans
    10. Iowa State - Loyal Fans, need more of them
    11. CU - too much to do in Denver if CU stinks
    12. Baylor

    This is for Football. Basketball has a completly different Fan Base.

    That's a really good point. Basketball wise, Kansas is tops without a doubt.

    This. I would say there is a log jam for ISU, CU, KSU, KU, OSU and Tech. All have very similar attendance figures and enrollments. The rest are larger.

    These pictures should end the argument. Baylor is so freaking pathetic.
