Even with Texas being down the last couple of years, Texas is still the most popular team in Texas. Suck on that Aggies.

How long will that last if the Aggies keep winning and the Longhorns keep spinning?

A couple of amusing findings:

U of Cincinnati is completely ignored in Cincinnati.

The Oregon Ducks are the favorite team of the northern tip of Staten Island, coastal New Hampshire and Maine south of Portland, while the Florida Gators seem to own Vermont and New Hampshire.

And just to confirm what everyone already knows except Boston College alumni - Boston College is barely a blip in Boston and isn't even the favorite team in Massachusetts outside of Rte 128. UConn reaches well into southern and central Mass, while Syracuse is the most popular team in counties bordering NY State.

From the article:

Quote:
"Only Southern Methodist, handed the “death penalty” by the N.C.A.A. in 1987, fails to break through..."
There are 12 FBS schools in Texas. They only named half of them (including SMU), so according to the map, they're apparently NOT the only ones who "fail to break through".

I'd think A&M's fanbase would be bigger than that and U of H pretty much dominates Houston in athletics.

Actual games, which is more than anyone can say for Texas.

A&M is likely to lose state fans to even TCU and Baylor as they did recruits before leaving Big12.

Someone mentioned UC being ignored in Cincy...that's true for football...not so for hoops...for football the metro doesn't seem to be dominated by any single rooting interests...I was upset living there because their paper didn't even cover the flagship school of Ohio, Ohio State barely at all...Cleveland, Akron, Toledo, & Dayton's papers all cover the Buckeyes nearly as much as the Columbus Dispatch. Not the Enquirer though.

Also, it shows S Carolina owns the Palmetto state...that's flat out wrong...when I lived in Rock Hill & Ft Mill, I saw many more Clemson flags and shirts than USCeast stuff...same was true in the Charleston area....only place I was in that seemed to lean Gamecocks was Columbia and Florence to Myrtle Beach.

Having lived in Greenville since 04 I can safely disagree with you. Clemson's loyalists reside in the immediate upstate areas of oconee Pickens Anderson Greenville and Spartanburg counties. The rest of the state is USC all the way. Even the citadel elite of Charleston claim USC as their home team. Clemson's own die hards can be very fickel at times whereas USC fans will stay true even in bad times.
