UK is Most Hated Football Program in the State of Kentucky



According to Reddit’s latest “most hated teams map” the University of Kentucky football team is the most hated college football program in the state. This isn’t too shocking, considering how fans reacted at the end of this past season. There’s plenty of negativity toward through the program right now, but it’s even easier to send the hate down I-64 to Bobby Petrino.

In Reddit’s survey Ohio State received the most overall hate with 11.4 percent of the votes. Alabama and Michigan were tied for second with 9.2 percent, Texas in third with 6.3 percent and finally Florida with 5.9 percent.

One of the most interesting findings of the map is the northeast part of the United States. There is an Iron Bowl rivalry between Vermont and New Hampshire. Vermont hates Alabama, while New Hampshire hates Auburn. And what did Texas ever do to the state of Rhode Island?



What do YOU think of the map?

    Well, they only surveyed 5,000 people. So basically, they’ve judged this based on 100 people per state. I don’t think any self-respecting UK fan would vote Kentucky over Loserville.

    I can’t believe no one is talkng about grayson allen in the utah game this season??? I guy goes up for a rebound and allen launches him into the back stop. Of course no foul called but that kid could have really got hurt.

    That is insane. How could UK be the most hated team in the state unless a disproportionate number of UL fans were included? Surely our own fans aren’t that stupid, are they? Being disappointed about the season is one thing (although we were not far off of who we are historically) but hating your own team more than UL or UT or… Maybe our fans don’t deserve a “quality” program.

    There were only 15 states that had over 100 people to vote. Kentucky wasn’t one of them. The poll I seen did not list how many people from Kentucky voted, but we do know it was less than 100. Could be 50, could be 10.

    Having said that, if just a few more Louisville fans saw the poll than UK fans, then the poll would show that UK was more hated.

    If the whole state was polled, I think we know who would garner the most hate.

    This is ridiculous. No doubt U of L faithful dominated this goofy poll. SMH. What else do they have to do this time of year? Definitely NOT getting prepared for the post season…
