Very accurate for South Carolina. Clemson is a very niche program. Isolated geographically to the upstate of SC. Clemson like Wake Forest is not even a statewide brand let alone a regional or national brand. Thus your comparatively lower ratings for this year's final four playoffs compared to last years when you had schools with national followings.

But don't tell the Clemson faithful any of this. Clemson's faithful believe that anything beyond the upstate of SC is the wastelands.
Clemson takes students from all over the state. Wando High School in Mt. Pleasant is the high school that sends the most kids to Clemson every year. There are alumni living all over the state and a lot in Atlanta and Charlotte. USC takes a lot more students and then has several branch campuses and professional schools lke medical and law that Clemson does not have. Obviously it will have more fans as a result. Clemson has more sidewalk fans though because it is much better program.

To compare Clemson to Wake Forest is amazingly silly. Clemson has a national title and is tied with FSU for the most ACC titles. It was one of the top 10 programs in the 80s and it has been a top 10 program the past 5 or 6 years. Wake is typicially at the bottom of the conference.

You comment a lot about Clemson but I never seen any indicaton that you knwo much about it or know many Clemson people. Clemson students come from all over the state so to assert we think the rest of the state is a wasteland is weird. Clemson is not a commmunity college.

Clemson is close to the most populated country in SC and is included in the Greenville MSA. Clemson is about the same distance from downtown Greenville as UNC is from downtown Raleigh. It isn't isolated at all. Isolated is a college lke Washingston State located in Pullman in the far eastern part of the state.

You are the same person who asserted downtown Greenville has a bunch of big box stores downtown even though it does not have any. It is hard to believe you live in the Upstate.

If you're wondering what the hell you're looking at, this is what happens when you let users vote for who their favorite college football teams. I found this on Reddit's CFB sub.

they definitely had small sample size, maybe even just 1 person in many areas. For example, an area of SC, the Aiken area, favorite college is Marshall University in West Virginia, according to this map. in reality it it is either SC, CLemson, or UGA.

It looks pretty accurate if you ignore the weird anomalies like that.

So apparently Carbon County, Wyoming has a big Louisiana Tech fan base. Didn't know that.

Also, all of Western South Dakota pulls for Stanford. And a pretty decent sized Arizona fanbase along the border from Sanderson to Eagle Pass.

UK really dominates Kentucky. I thought Louisville might have a slightly bigger area.

Well, it is a fan map that they asked people to vote on, so what did you think the result would be?

Every time something is done like this, the map always looks like a cluster****. always.

The people asked the question in western South Dakota were probably a total of about 5. All from the same family with a relative who attended Stanford. So much for SD and now back to the big cities for the rest of the polling.


If western SD followed any major universities (BCS in football, not FCS) other than the regional colleges, it would be Nebraska with a spattering of Wyoming and Colorado fans.
