    Re: Classiest and Least Classiest Fans in the Big XII

    I havent been down there to a game yet, but no matter who i talk to, whether it be iowa state fans that have been there, texas a&m fans that have been there, oklahoma fans that have been there, the only one i get a consistently bad review of their fans is texas tech. Enough that even though i'm trying to hit a game in every big 12 stadium eventually, i may just call it good that i was in that stadium for another event a couple years ago.

    Classiest? Other than us of course , I'd have to go with Texas A&M. Definitely a very welcoming crowd.

    Re: Classiest and Least Classiest Fans in the Big XII

    I thought that Oklahoma fans would be the snobby arrogant fans I dreamt of, but they are not.

    I've been to Norman/OKC and been treated well. Football, Basketball, all they want to do is win & party. If they don't win (not very often) they still party.

    Worst: Colorado. Getting hot dogs thrown at you during a game kinda taints your image of your fans... forever.

    Ditto! Hands down... not even close IMO.

    Just ask guys like Jeff Grayer or Hornacek about Mizzou fans. Getting pelted with sodas and nachos and "other" things while walking out of the tunnel, and having various obscenities thrown your way on top of it. Mizzou fans are hands down the worst I've seen. Worse than even Iowa fans... imagine that!

    Re: Classiest and Least Classiest Fans in the Big XII

    I've traveled to some away places.

    A&M hands down has the classiest fans. Multiple invites to their tailgates, bringing you along with them to their homecoming celebration at the stadium the night before the game, buying you beers at bars, and coming over to your table at restaurants and talking to you and telling you to drive back to Iowa safe.

    Worst are probably KU in bball and Tech in fb. KU just has insane blinders they wear during games and Tech looks like people from the Mad Max movies.

    Re: Classiest and Least Classiest Fans in the Big XII

    Classy:
    I gotta go with aTm. Each time I go to College Station I get hand shake, high five, and treated as a fan of college sports! The fans love to talk sports and love to just be nice. I had a blast last year at Kyle Field as we went from multiple tailgates and at each one we felt very welcomed.
    This is the same for basket ball games. Just really good people in Aggieland (sp?)

    Least:
    Gonna have to go with KU - never had a good experience there.

    Re: Classiest and Least Classiest Fans in the Big XII

    Don't understand the animosity towards KSU fans. I've had numerous encounters with KSU fans and they have always been polite. My list would be:

    Class:
    Oklahoma State
    Texas A&M
    Oklahoma
    Nebraska
    Kansas State

    No Class:
    Texas Tech (This is not even close and anyone who disagrees has never been to a game in Lubbock, Texas.)
    Missouri
    Colorado
    Kansas

    Indifferent:
    Texas
    Baylor


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    Maybe KSU fans are different when they come to Ames? I've interacted with plenty of them in Ames, and never caught an attitude or anything from them (outside of a dislike they had for Ron Prince). Never been to Manhattan, so I don't know there.


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

    I've been to Manhattan for a basketball and football game and gone to the bars both times. Got treated very well on both occassions.
