Guy who makes Twitter polls upset Kentucky fans voted in his Twitter poll

Kentucky fans have a long history of dominating online polls, and today, that upset one Twitter pollmaker so much he took his polls and went home. @CBB_polls, which bills itself as “the best college basketball poll page,” has been running a series of polls about the sport, the most recent asking fans to vote on the best arena in college basketball. Rupp Arena won that poll, but the pollmaker was so upset about the result he or she posted this message and announced they are suspending their polls until the start of the season.

It’s worth noting that I can’t link the actual tweet because @CBB_polls blocked me and apparently every UK fan who has participated in the polls, making it especially sweet that Rupp still won. Last week, they ran a poll asking which team has better fans, Kentucky or Iowa State, and the Cyclones had a commanding lead until the poll was brought to our attention and we linked it a few times. Sorry for the free publicity, dude.

Back to today’s response. Their digs at Rupp Arena aside, you have to love how this person is trying to argue for “correctness” and subjectivity on a forum like Twitter. If @CBB_polls is expecting Twitter to be fair all of the time, they’ve got a long summer ahead of them. Twitter polls are meant to be taken over by fanbases and shared to increase exposure. In fact, I’d be willing to bet the account’s followers doubled or tripled after the BBN became aware of that poll last week.

On second thought, by shaming fans for doing exactly as he or she asked, maybe this person does fit right in on Twitter.

    So he thinks UK fans really don’t believe Rupp is the best arena?

      Yeah, CNN is always looking for new fake news sources…

      This is a story about some Internet troll crying and blaming all their problems on a boogeyman fanbase. Fits much more with our country’s self-aggrandizing leader than with the Celebrity News Network that helped get him elected. I really wish my fellow Kentuckians would stop buying into the “fake news” distraction method being used to hide facts from us. And before someone calls me a libtard, I’m a conservative Republican.

      Oddly enough you were the one who immediately ran to the false dichotomy. Talk about distractions…

      Right on, Han. These people are so blinded by Trump it’s pathetic. It’s fans like this that give UK a bad name btw. They make everything about politics and are so one sided it’s laughable. This story clearly reeks of something their lord Drumpf would do. He lost the popular vote by 3 million plus and has a similar reaction.

      Never in history has a US president worked so hard to fight against the intelligence findings of every US ally, to prove the innocence of an enemy.

    After two Democratic terms in office, this is sadly the type of nonsense we have to deal with on a daily basis. Didn’t get the results he wanted, so it never happened. CATS

      Neither the Republicans or the Democrats deserve our support given how they use it. And the Democrats certainly didn’t deserve to win when they put everything into corrupt Clinton. It’s unfortunate that so many people, including in this fanbase, somehow thought electing a narcissist corrupt businessman who defends Russia was gonna work out better than a plain ole corrupt politician.

      If this nation has gone downhill and needs to be “made great again”, then that’s why: lazy thinking from people who either:

      1 – would rather have their opinions given to them by someone else than come to an informed conclusion themselves

      – OR –

      2 – only absorb information that reinforces a stance they’ve already taken, regardless of any factual value to said information or solid reasoning behind their stance in the first place.

      If people instead sought out information that challenges their beliefs at the same time that they seek out information that affirms them, then a lot of people in this nation would be more informed and open to different viewpoints than they are, which would lead to peace, understanding, and cooperation.

      The problem is that it’s easier just to stick to one’s own beliefs and reinforce them with only information that reinforces them rather than challenging them, and to so many intellectually lazy Americans, that has become okay. And that sickens me.

      Of course you are. I called your dumb shitpost out earlier, which was backed up by another poster with proof, and you got all butthurt and now you can’t keep ME out of YOUR head. Now it make you feel better to attack me without adding any substance to the conversation.

      MY suggestion would be for you to think before you post, that way you can protect your feelings from getting hurt. Maybe think things through first before blabbing some ridiculous shit on here, which, as we’ve all seen, you have a propensity to do.

      Bottom line: don’t hate me for shit you brought on YOURSELF. Have a good night.

      I don’t hate anyone Pricknose and I wouldn’t give you the satisfaction or put you on a pedestal if I did. You started this earlier today with your usual know it all holier than thou crap you usually post. Everybody that disagrees with you is a ‘troll’, and you HAVE to pop off about it, that’s a pathetic existence. I’m going to have a great night knowing I’m deep inside the recesses of your pea sized brain. Why don’t you go keep yourself busy doing some cut and paste you can enlighten us all with later genius. Oh, and I’m not done with you either my friend.

      jaws2 I’m no fan of Big Board Update who constantly calls out any opinion other than their own as trolling but hold crap are you an 11 year old boy? You think you’re s out prime insults by calling someone Pricknose over and over? Do you go giggle in the corner every time you type it?

    “Voting based on better fan base and ignoring tradition” What??? I think the larger fan base is based on tradition and a really long one at that. Goofball. And on it goes, you know the ropes. They hate us cause they aint us.

      LOL ignoring tradition would be to ignore UK who has been called by a few large publications the greatest tradition in college basketball.

    This is almost as shameful as Lonzo Ball ducking Fox in tonight’s game, because of a “sore groin”.

    He ended a sentence with a preposition. Until he learns proper grammar, I will boycott his Twitter.
