Edit: Original map was subject to ballot stuffing. Here's the updated one. Take it FWIW
Nevada, Maine, Massachusetts, Maryland, and Delaware all hate us for some reason. OSU most hated in NY, New Hampshire, and Connecticut
Why does New Mexico hate Ole Miss more than anyone else?
Or do you just suck at geography?
The original map had the state just to left of Texas (a.k.a New Mexico) with Ole Miss as it's most hated.
Just checking to make sure you're thinking with your head and not your head Mr. A Nuss.
The old one was screwed up, this is the updated one from Reddit
The guy generated the map before the data had been cleaned; the new map (and relevant discussion) are posted here:
So the one person who voted in Maine hates us... big fuckin' deal
ummm why the hell does Montana hate us?
Edit: Well new map looks a little better but why do three states including Utah hate BYU so much?
BYU fans don't have a compelling united dislike of another school. All non Mormons, Utah St., and Utah fans dislike BYU. When BYU were kings of the Mountain West their fans were also pretty unbearable so you have a lot of lingering resentment there as well.
They are still unbearable and bitch and moan about not getting into a power conference
The original WAC (now roughly the Mountain West) universally hated BYU. And not just because of their outsized success in football at the time. All of the exceptions that came with a Mormon school pissed off the rest of the conference. The mission exception allowed a lot of 25 year old BYU kids to play against 18 and 19 year old WAC kids. Not playing competitions on Sundays. This all added headaches to the rest of the conference members.
not have any data for Montana? I voted, damnit!
This map doesn't agree with common sense. I think Michigan, Illinois, California, and New York are home to the highest concentration of Michigan fans and alumni. I get that State fans, Big Ten fans, and general college football fans who are haters might gang up on us in those respective states. But Ohio is most hated in Ohio? Something is weird about this. Only thing I can conclude is that we're on a lot of people's radar.
Well fuck you too, Nevada.
I've been to Nevada plenty and have never got a negative michigan vibe.
Yeah it should be BYU unless the Vegas transplants are shifting the numbers,
In my 6 years in Las Vegas, I saw way more buckeye gear than Michigan, but USC gear seemed to show up more than any others I saw. I think if the population were polled on college sports vitriol, I'd expect more to show up against UCLA or UNLV's basketball rival, whichever school that is.
Confirms my belief. Nobody actually lives in Montana, North Dakota, or Vermont.
Either so is that why so little of our tax dollars make it back up here?
That makes a hell of a lot more sense than that first map. We still have Nevada for some reason but Ohio, Illinois, and Indiana all make sense.
My guess as to why Nevada hates Michigan so much has to do something with gambling. Im assuming Michigan does not cover the spread all that much. Im sure someone who has a more extensive history of gambling can shed more light on that.
I'd guess it's more likely that states without a major football power tend to just pick a major team. There might a lot of random OSU and Notre Dame fans out there.
It could also be that we got 3 of 13 votes from Nevada and that was the majority, or some guys from Ohio just said they were from Nevada. Very unscientific here
Yeah but being a notre dame fan means you hate USC, BC, and MSU more than michigan.
That's not true. Typically ND fans west of the Mississippi hate SC the most, and those East of the Mississippi hate Michigan the most. ND has longer rivalries with MSU and BC, but those teams haven't beaten ND enough over the years to be as hated.
You're reading way, way too much into this. Most reasonable explanation is that 75 percent of female MSU grads move to Nevada to start their careers at the Spearmint Rhino.
I would agree
Nevada has a lot of transplants. Likely looking at that plus a low population and a state with no compelling college rooting interest for the natives and you get weird results like that. As a native Nevadan I still am mad at my state for this. Glad Air Force is no longer Idaho's most hated.
I'm getting the feeling this updated map still isn't accurate. Or should I say acurate.
Tech, A&M, Baylor, and TCU fans most likely. I still figured it would be Oklahoma though.
Texas is a binary state. You either love or hate UT. The hate that longhorns fans have for the Sooners is not enough to overcome the hate that A&M, Texas Tech, TCU, Baylor, and other fans in the state generate for the longhorns.
Exactly - not all Texas fans hate the same school (there is a big split between TAMU, especially recently, and Oklahoma) but all non-Texas fans hate Texas.
Well played, sir
That was clever
whereas it does show that Michigan State is irrelevant.
There isn't another major school there to equal UW in numbers.
Nice to see that Missouri and KU still have their rivalry.
Have you met Bo Ryan?
I have met Bo Ryan! He recruited my son.
So....the state of Upper Michigan hates Wisconsin?
The state of Upper Michigan hates all things red it seems.
Same with Iowa. I feel there are more Iowa fans that Iowa St. fans, and ISU would be the more hated team. Who the hell knows.
Iowa fans probably split their hatred among ISU and other Big Ten Schools.
I think the shade of red is for the Ohio State continuing over from Michigan.
Yeah, the soo is gray
Living here for 2 years, I can say Wisconsin loves their Badgers and hate Ohio (they're not too fond of Michigan either, but they really hate OSU).
My guess is that the red is supposed to represent the Buckeyes.
although it's very difficult to tell.
pretty sure that's osu. different shades of red.
That is tied into the OSU logo on Michigan, not the W logo on Minnesota.
The first one was effed up. New one makes way more sense. Ohio is a state that sucks.
So Alabama hates Alabama the most? That can't be right. If this map was really accurate, the state of Michigan would be osu, the state of Ohio would be M, and the rest of the country would be Alabama.
Imagine Alabama is 50/50 Bama and Auburn fans. If Bama fans are split amongst several other teams like Auburn, LSU, and Florida that could dilute their voting power to the point that Auburn's united hatred of Alabama wins out in the state
Just like how in Michigan, Michigan fans outnumber MSU fans but MSU is united in their hatred for us. Michigan fans would be split up several ways between MSU, OSU, and Notre Dame so it wouldn't be terribly surprising to me to see us be most hated in Michigan
