College-Football-Share-of-Twitter-Voice-Offseason (1)

Want proof of how much Mark Stoops has changed the environment surrounding Kentucky football? Emory University published this chart this afternoon showing which states have been tweeting the most about college football over the past six months, and the found that Kentucky is one of the top nine states for college football tweets.

Did they include the term #YAHTZEE in their search? If not, Kentucky’s gotta be in the top five, which is currently 1) Alabama, 2) Mississippi, 3) Tennessee, 4) South Carolina, and 5) West Virginia.

    Our D-line is going to be unreal next year if there are no injuries. ESPN just ranked Bud Dupree as the number 3 DE in the SEC and Donte Rumph number 4 D Tackle… Bud and Zadarius coming off the ends with Rumph up the middle is going to be fun to watch

    The same Emory that said Loserville had a better basketball fanbase than UK?

    Take everything with a grain of salt.

    Can’t wait for kickoff. Go Cats.

    Someone needs to learn the difference between percent and percentile.

    Yes, sorry. 84-100% refers to percentile (which refers to how it ranks with other states), not percent of tweets.

    6- wasn’t much to talk about, watching qb/hb draws on 3rd n 17 isn’t worth talking about

    Emory seems to spend an incredible amount of time and money researching stupid things. The “best fan bases by expected team results” thing that they published was really pointless too. It’s a real shame that such a good school publishes such pointless crap.

    Haha you little kitty cats just don’t get it, I wonder how many of those tweets were about UL football, it surely didn’t specify which schools in the states were tweeting, no matter what, these days UL is a far superior school athletically, UK may have the greatest recruiting class ever (everyone knows bc UK douchebag fan base wont let anyone forget it) but UK and bonhart can’t hold shit against UL and jurich. Can’t wait to see all UK 2-3 star freshman football players get their asses handed to them. From yours truly, CardNation haha FBBN. Lets not forget 2013 MBB champions, 2013 Sugar Bowl champs, 2013 CWS, and the biggest upset in NCAA history the lady birds of 2013, Womens NCAA Final Four

    A Louisville fan with a massive inferiority complex? No way, that never happens! UK leads the series in football all time (which is sad), basketball by utter domination at 31-15 in the regular season, and nobody cares about the other sports you listed. Wait until Strong leaves (and proceeds to get exposed as having been a big fish in the worlds smallest pond), and Pitino croaks on the sidelines and then UL will be completely back in their place.

    And Cardnation? Not even the whole city of Louisville supports UL and the Card Tards, so don’t pretend there’s a “nation” of fans.

    “I wonder what’s going on over on the UL fan sites”

    -No UK fan ever.

    You Card Tards just can’t stop obsessing over UK. And then you all wonder why BBN refers to you all collectively as “little brother”.
