This is a thread about who has the "best" fans. I don't think the city of Austin sucks but the enthusiasm of the fans sucks. Austin is very much a college town but the passion of the fans is much different. Go east to college station or north to norman, and the fans are completely different. Out of the 3 teams I just listed, personally I probably like UT the best. However, I don't think the fan base is the best. Out of the schools you listed, I find the fans at Bama and UF much more passionate. Maybe it's because there is less to do in Tuscaloosa than there is an Austin. I don't know and don't really care. But for this thread, I think Austin is a little bit overrated.

Well, actually UT had a worse winning percentage in 1997, when UCLA beat them 66-3 in Austin (UT was 4-7 that year, vs. 5-7 last year).

I hope UT joins the Pac 12. UCLA needs all the easy W's we can get, we have sucked lately....

But yeah, UT has WAY too much talent to be down for too long.

Sorry, but I am SO ready for college football to start.

Omaha is huge. We have hosted the College World Series for the past 61 years and are under contract through 2035. Omaha built a $131 million stadium with the main tenant being the CWS(that is unimaginable in other cities.)

Omaha holds the 3 highest NCAA volleyball attendance marks including the largest crowd to watch a volleyball match in America. Omaha hosts NCAA basketball first and second round games. Omaha hosted the 2010 NCAA wrestling championships.

Omaha supports Creighton basketball making it the 22nd highest attended basketball team in the country, impressive for a Missouri Valley team with less than 8K students. Omaha also supports it college hockey program the 5th most attended in the country.

Not to mention the tens of thousands that drive from Omaha to Lincoln to continue the sellout streak that was started in 1962.

All in all Omaha needs to be right near the top of this discussion.
