Re: Worst Fans in College Sports?
Depends on how you clasify "worst"
If we're talking obnoxious, mine is Ohio State. The same fans crucified other schools for recruiting violations or being dirty programs but will turn Jim Tressel into the second coming of Pete Rose.
If we're talking worst in terms of fan behavior, then WVU would top the list, although for the most part, its the younger generation. I can talk with most of the older fans and can carry on a civil conversation. I don't even try to debate with the younger fans anymore. If a young WVU fan throws up Cal's cheating history to me, I just reply "I'd rather have the cheater than the alcoholic" and end it.
In the SEC though, the worst fans as far as behavior is Mississippi State. I still remember a couple years ago when their fans were throwing stuff onto the court after Kentucky won in OT in Starkville that year. They also got hold of DeMarcus Cousins cell phone number and sent harrassing messages, although Cousins did respond back with a "call me" sign after a dunk. Of course, I can't stand their coach either in Rick Stansbury.
As for Duke/UNC, living in West Virginia I can say this. When I first moved here eight years ago was the end of the Gale Catlett era and the beginning of John Beilein. You wouldn't have known WVU had a basketball team at the time but most of the basketball fans I knew followed Duke or UNC (mostly Duke). When WVU started winning, those fans started to switch back to the gold and blue. Basically, the only Duke/UNC experience I have had is bandwagon.
