Ten Dumbest Fan Bases in America
« on: September 17, 2013, 10:15:39 AM »
http://www.outkickthecoverage.com/the-ten-dumbest-fan-bases-in-america-4-arkansas-.php

Clay Travis is doing a mediocre Drew Magary impersonation with this list, but it's still decent. Only the top 3 are left. Any guesses as to which schools/teams will be there?

I'm assuming he's going to list Alabama number 1. Ohio State, Auburn, Kentucky are also options for the top 3. Maybe LSU?

He's including NFL fanbases in there, too. Trying to think of who could be worse than the Steelers, Cowboys and Raiders...Jets? Eagles?

I can see maybe one more NFL fan base being included. Eagles would be my guess, if any. Based on his Twitter feed, I feel like Bama and Ohio State will be in the top 3. The other will go Eagles or Auburn/Kentucky, I bet.

If the SEC doesn't have the top eight spots, the list is wrong.

Oregon is a bunch of fuckheads, too.

Yeah. I was surprised to see he included NFL teams. Figured the SEC alone could handle most, if not all, of it.

I'd guess Penn State, Philly Eagles and Alabama.

Though I agree any list that doesn't contain at least seven SEC teams is fail.

From a college standpoint, it should be almost every team in the SEC, combined with Oregon, Ohio State and Penn State.

I actually think of the good SEC schools, LSU has pretty good fans, at least ones that aren't as delusional as Bama, Auburn, Florida, Tennessee, Arkansas, etc...

If you're comparing delusional NFL fans vs. delusional college fans, it's not even in the same ballpark. I'm trying to think of fans in NFL cities that are really bad... None are on the same level as Florida, Alabama, Auburn, Tennessee ...

Maybe Alabama gets a pass because they're actually correct now that they can win the title every season.

Auburn would be my No. 1.

I'd be shocked if Alabama isn't No. 1 on his list. As it should be.

They'd be No. 1 or No. 2 on my list. I get the feeling this is football only.

If it didn't take 3 nanoseconds to come up with "Philadelphia," you weren't even trying.

Criteria isn't bad fans, the criteria is dumb fans. Oakland has to win this one, based solely on the amount of morons who treat it like it's a KISS concert.

Dallas and Oakland are probably the two "dumbest" NFL cities. Oakland seems a little less dumb these days because the fans know they suck.

Still, if you're comparing them to SEC schools, it's not even in the same stratosphere.

If we're talking college football only, Auburn, Alabama, Florida, Arkansas, Tennessee have to be on that list. Then, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Penn State, Oregon, then maybe you take your pick from the Texas and Oklahoma schools.

If basketball is included, Kentucky jumps to the top of the list.

I'd put Pitt fans on the list, but the fanbase is so Boston College-like in size I don't know if it's worth it.

It reads more like a list of obnoxious fan bases  than dumb ones, but I guess insulting the intelligence of the fans is a better way to troll, which is exactly what the Outkick the Coverage is doing here.

I'm sorry but the correct answer is the Big 10 because there are TWELVE FUCKING TEAMS this year, 14 teams next year and 15 teams in 2015 (Johns Hopkins joins the BIG## for Lax)

How are Alabama fans delusional?

(Note: I am not arguing against Alabama being on this list. But I don't see how you could say Alabama fans are delusional.)
When you commemorate 9-11 for being Bear Bryant's birthday rather than the murders of 3,000 Americans in a terrorist attack your are delusional and STUPID

Right. As I said above, it's hard to seem "dumb" when you're winning titles in most years.

But when one of your fans poisons a pair of trees over a football rivalry, I can see the other side of the argument as well... :D

So the dumbest fan base in America is the Big 10 fan base?

The replies Travis is getting and re-tweeting on Twitter are the best part of this whole thing.
