We're going to have to agree to disagree on this one, WVRed. UK football fans are among the best the country has to offer. They're almost universally positive, appreciative, and willing to spend, travel, and support a team that is historically abysmal.
They continually rank in the upper 25 in attendance despite poor records and poorer coaching. Too, when they inevitably lose, there's no anger directed at opposing teams, just glazed expressions as they silently file out of the stadium.
They are also willing to tailgate with anyone, regardless of of team affiliation. (Heck, Louisville and Kentucky fans regularly hand out together.)
Basketball is another kettle of fish. (I've posted my feelings on those people before.) But football in Kentucky is universally pleasant.
