Looking at Byrd Stadium this past saturday, I would rate our fans below the "no fans" category.
So sad, every article I read about this move talked about our pathetic football program and attendance this year. We are a joke to the nation when it comes to football. I hate edsall more than life.
Here's the rundown on the Big Ten's fans:
MSU -- Conspiracy nuts, long-suffering in football. Guess I can't blame you for being butt-hurt over that Lucious shot, but don't forget Paul Davis while you're at it.
um -- Utterly arrogant douchebags. If you don't hate um instantly, you don't get the Big Ten.
o$u -- Dirty and obnoxious. If you go to a game in columbus, be prepared to be hit in the head with a bottle.
wusconsin -- Think football was invented in 1990, Basketball in 2000. Kings of flopping, despite what you may think about dook.
NW -- Also conveniently ignore the fact that they sucked most of the 20th century, but it's hard to hate them. Prepare for them to ruin your season.
PSU -- Completely out of touch with reality.
Nebraska -- Seem pretty cool, actually. Prepare for them invading your stadium.
iowa -- Couldn't beat um or o$u if their lives depended on it, but they'll screw up everybody else's season.
IU, Purdue, illinois, Minny -- Who cares?
The way the Big Ten works is that delaney does everything he can to promote um and o$u. Nebraska and PedSU are second-tier. Everyone else is expendable. You'll save yourselves some grief if you know this going in.
Vim -- noun: robust energy and enthusiasm : VITALITY
let's rephrase this for the members of our new PackPride replacement:
"Why did your conference not have a basketball player of the year award before the 1984-1985 season?"
"Maryland football: Where everybody gets hurt and the starting left tackle has an existential crisis."
Ahh...reading skills are good.
I have no idea.
First off, Wisconsin is glad to have the Terps join up.
I'm the obligatory Bielema/Bo Ryan Apologist. You'll find that it's mostly OSU and Michigan State fans that whine about Bielema and Bo and since they're the ones on the 247 boards, they'll overpower your opinion despite being mostly wrong. To give you some of the blown way out of proportion/butt hurt hate that those two fanbases have for us, let me explain specific situations.
For Bo Ryan, he's been extremely successful in the Big Ten with a methodical slow offense (which is getting faster) and people hate success, particularly against a historically good program. Bo has had a largely successful campaign against Tom Izzo, having a winning record against Izzo in conference play since he's shown up by a large margin (I think it's 12-7 last time I checked?) while every other team Izzo has gone up against has a losing record since Izzo has shown up at M. State.
Ohio State hates Bo Ryan largely because they've clashed on top, but one particular instance that they love to whine about would be the "Deal with it" moment. Wisconsin came back to beat #1 Ohio State on UW's home court. UW students rushed the court and Jared Sullinger quickly walked off the court escorted by security. While Jared said nothing after game, he posted on his twitter account that he was spit on. This was a spit as mythical as the one on Seinfeld http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PkCQ8qR5-i0 seeing as he only went by one student who was shown on video to not spit at Sullinger. It would've been a loogie from the third floor. Anyways, the next day after Matta and Sullinger both accused the Badger students of spitting on him (again, didn't happen) Bo Ryan addressed the claims by saying "There is absolutely nothing that has come to my attention. All I know is, we won the game. Deal with it. On our end and their end". Obviously the Narcisstic Buckeye Nation didn't deal with it that well and have been pissy ever since.
So there's the reason that Bo Ryan is hated for no good reason, I'll address Bielema later who has some cause, but imo not nearly to the effect it is done.
If God dwells inside us, like some people say, I sure hope He likes enchiladas, because that's what He's getting
Pretty spot on, I'll agree with that. O$U fans are the worst, by far. Michigan is very pretentious, but they haven't been relevant really for the past 5 years so I don't really have much experience with them since being on these boards.
OSU and Wisky have a pretty good rivalry going right now.
All Bo did was set himself up for future mockery with his quote.
The OSU student section will hand out towels for Sunday's game with Wisconsin featuring Ryan's now infamous saying.
We also love Wal-mart.
Which, I believe, was also the final score the last time the two met.
Bo Ryan looks like a KKK grand wizard.
Bo Pelini looks like Voldemort, also a wizard.
We dislike bo because he plays slow boring basketball. Every fan base hates watching it. He is a great coach, but it is still awful BBall to watch.
slowest team in the country in 2012
2nd slowest in 2011
8th slowest in 2010
11th slowest in 2009
24th slowest in 2008
obviously still very early, but 2nd slowest again this year
It has been getting slower, not faster like you claim it has.

My understanding is the entire conference top to bottom loathes Ohio St.
UPS will be our rival whether they like it or not. They have been complaining for years about being an east coast school in a mid-west conference, well that has somewhat changed today.
How does our 2 for 1 asses taste now UPS?
Finally to UNC and the rest of the ACC......AMF!!
I'm just waiting to see which fans make College Park out to be Mogadishu because it's in a black neighborhood. I'm guessing Nebraska or Iowa.
Is it worse than New Brunswick?
It's my understanding that UMd's enrollment is heavily populated by New Jerseyites who didn't want to go to Rutgers.
Amateurs. We target opposing players' moms
what wolfie left out is that the whole B1G then laughs at the Wisconsin Floppers come NCAA tourney time, when the "Vadgers" tend to disappear and get beaten by a lower seed.... (they have the losing to the 11,12,and 13 seed thing down to a fine art..... the collapses are normally epic!)
Indiana 0-2 last played in 1935
Michigan 0-3 last played in 1990
Michigan State 1-4 last played in 1950
Minnesota 1-0 last played in 1977
Purdue 1-0 last played in 2006
Let's just say that I have extreme hatred for UPS
Michigan State 2-1

See why Michigan State fans are obnoxious. Despite being a largely successful program, they still have some sort of inferiority complex to Bo's teams that they can't beat in the regular season. We were a terribly called game and a 2 point shot in favor of beating Syracuse and going to the Final 4 last year, but try again.
The first big ten flame war on this board by conference members.
How's that "Bo owns Izzo" working out for you?
Bo owns zero National Championships; Hell, Bo owns zero Final Fours.
In the last 4 seasons, MSU has gone 5-2 against the Badgers, won 3 conference championships, won 1 conference tournament championship, and went to 2 Final Fours.
In the last 4 seasons, Wisconsin has............
Wisconsin fans are butt hurt because their deepest run EVER in the NCAA tournament was during a season that included 3 losses to MSU; One where MSU sent them packing for Madison en route to a National Championship. Suck it Bucky, you are irrelevant.
You'll grow to hate us. And we love it. We thrive on it.
We only hate edsall.....
It gives them a sense of pride as they're delivering pizzas. Or beating off on somebody's front porch. Or both.
