"I talked to an advance scout that told me if Joey Votto and Albert Pujols were on the same team he'd advise his team to do the unthinkable...pitch around Votto to get to Pujols." - Buster Olney, ESPN

Some Kentucky fans are great. The thing is, when you have a very large fanbase (and one that is very passionate), it's just impossible to avoid having a large number of very stupid people in the fan base. It's just a fact of life given the large number of very stupid people in the population at large. You'll notice that most of the fanbases listed are the largest and most passionate ones. Because of that, almost by definition they're guaranteed to have the most idiots on their side.
Auburn fans, a distinct minority in the state, are really nothing like Alabama fans. That's because by and large Auburn fans are associated in some way with Auburn. 95% of the idiots in Alabama root for the Crimson Tide.
Alabama is harder to enter if your not "family" and prefers "born into money" students from Alabama. You have a lot of young people that are groomed to be attending Alabama at a young age and then take a scholarship to Auburn,UAB,Troy, and now South Alabama while there family is Alabama alumni.

This is the blueprint for how a baseball organization should be run. And, whether the baseball men of the 20th century like it or not, this is where baseball is going."---Dave Cameron, U.S.S. Mariner
I started following the list when WVU fans posted it on facebook. When I saw it was Clay Travis I knew it would be Kentucky and Alabama for the final two, just didn't know in what order.
What's funny is reading some of the responses from WVU fans, and Travis added fuel to the fire by posting another article about it. Stuff like "I hope you get hit by a bus"
Oregon Duck fans are purty bad.
I've never quite gotten the concept of being a fan of a college team and not having gone to school there.
I think the worst thing about Notre Dame fans is they tend to forget the Irish exist once basketball season starts flip their reversible starter jackets on to become IU basketball fans.
When people say that I donít know what Iím talking about when it comes to sports or writing, I think: Man, you should see me in the rest of my life.
Traditionally ND fandom was a Catholic go to in the swath of mid-west Protestantism, it was fed by NDs growth in the 20s prior to the relevance of big time basketball
