Kentucky is No. 7 on Top 10 “Unruly Fanbases”

Lost Lettermen, a college sports fansite, ranked the top ten most unruly fanbases in college basketball and Kentucky made the cut. Big Blue Nation is ranked seventh on the list, thanks to our desire for a title and disdain for Pat Forde:

7. Kentucky

Kentucky fans are known for being the most rabid fan base in the country. They travel in packs around the country and always seem to be dressed in blue. But they can be a crazy bunch as well — showing their hate for Rick Pitino, who now coaches rival Louisville, and putting the heat on championship-winning coach Tubby Smith and Billy Gillispie when they struggled. Prospects who pick another school to play for do so at their own peril. Heck, not even Yahoo writer Pat Forde is welcome in Lexington. Local police better brace themselves if UK wins it all this year.

Maryland, West Virginia, Michigan State, Syracuse, and Illinois make up the top five spots, with our good friend Indiana coming in at No. 9.

    so wait if our fans hate a guy that coaches us to a title only to leave and then come back to our biggest rival and has absolutely no morals it means we have a bad fan base?

    I’m competitive, and was just telling a guest at work that DC is battling with LA to have the worst traffic in the country and that I’m pissed we weren’t #1 in that category… same goes for this. I want 1’s across the board.

    This writer must be a friend of Pat4Head for him to bring up not liking 4Head and RickyP as what is wrong with UK fans. Also, Texas Tech is already getting tired of BillyG.

    too bad it wasn’t “biased” “unrealistic” or “moronic” fanbases…UK would take all those top spots.
