    I contended in another thread that all TN residents like the Vols and was told I was way off. So what school is closest to 100% support in its own state? LSU maybe?

    There aren't folks who hate NU just to go against the grain? I know there's always going to be a few, but there's not like a significant population?

    I don’t think you were told you were way off. You are mostly correct that the majority of Tennesseans support UT. I am not one of those Tennesseans. I have no ties to that university, so I don’t support them.

    No. You’re shunned socially if you’re loudly anti-husk.

    I lived in Nebraska as a kid and didn't hear anything about other team's. Didn't know if they were as popular since not the dominant team they once were.

    Lived there in 1988 when KU won bball Natty & nobody gave a fuck about basketball.

    I remember when I moved to Nebraska in middle school and I was floored when every one of my teachers, including 60 year old women, could discuss Saturday’s husker game in detail.

    Too many significant pockets of Notre Dame (Cincinnati) and Michigan (Toledo/Cleveland) fans to call it.

    Plus, the Cincinnati alumni hate that no conference wants them and focus that hate on Ohio State.

    This is why our program is the goat at being the woat. No matter what happens it’s not like the AD has to worry about losing fan support, what else are residents of the state going to plan their fall weekends around? And our media... well they are basically members of athletic department’s marketing team so yeah there is no way to initiate change.

    Our fans would point to wins like 40 years ago and then act like it’s an impenetrable shield and Colorado's recent success doesn’t matter.

    Ohio State dominates central Ohio and rural Ohio, but the other cities all have a decent mix of alumni from other schools.

    In Cincinnati, the football mix is about 50% OSU, 20% ND, and 15% UC fans who think they’re being slighted. The remaining 15% is a mix of Kentucky, Michigan, Indiana, and other alumni who actively root against OSU.

    In basketball season, the Kentucky, UC, Xavier fans become more prominent and you barely know OSU exists.

    To elaborate on this: I was in Omaha years ago on the saem day that Bill Callahan's Huskers were annihilated by CU and the game wasn't the leading topic of conversation, it was the only topic of conversation among the locals. I had never seen anything quite like that in my life (and still haven't tbh but I've lived in Chicago my entire life which is not a college football mecca).

    Across 90 percent of the state, a lot, if not the majority of people would agree with you. Kinda depends on where you are. In Wichita, you'd get most of the people around you to join in. Even in KC that's a possibility with the Mizzou grads wandering around.

    Like the furthest 20 percent eastern portion is Jayhawk country. The rest of the wasteland that is central and western KS is mostly KSU territory.

    It’s easy to tolerate the Notre Dame and Michigan fans because they have a general understanding of college football.

    The worst are the UC fans.

    I spent most of Saturday evening last week at a high school grad party listening to a neighbor getting progressively drunk and delusional about UC beating ND and Indiana this year, then teaching the college football world a lesson in the playoffs.

    Since UC hung with a Georgia team that was down a dozen starters in a bowl game, they are now ready to give Ohio State what it deserves.

    I felt like an anthropologist, trying to understand this subculture.

    As ridiculously interested in the huskers most Nebraskans are they are equally clueless about college football as a whole. Like most prob think we are just a few good bounces away from Bama.
