Not winning anything ever will make ya' that way. We'll find out soon.
Apparently, we're already there. :lol:
We're 15th with 3,and some would say, 4 of our biggest rivals ahead of us.

Not winning **** since 2008 has taken a huge toll on the Swamp and Mighty Gators fandom.

Had this same survey been done in 2005-2009 where would we have been rated?
Top 5 at worst.

Naps has work to do!

Seems like if you're going to include a kickball team you'd go with one where the fan took on three knife wielding jihadis with his bare hands.

After having attended a Bama/UF game inside of Ben Hill Griffin stadium I can say for a fact, they should not be ranked any higher than #16. I mean really...

I like how you make it a point to mention that you were able to fit inside a particular location. Well done.

On a serious note, you must’ve just run into a few bad apples while here. We’re usually pretty kind to opposing fans. Especially those wearing compression socks.

We aren't hostile toward the other team anymore. We're hostile toward each other.

Oh trust me when I say, the Gator fans around me were quite verbally abusive. Not abusive enough to rate #15 on that list though...

However, the "Bama" section where most of our fans were sitting, right next to the UF student section, did have to endure quite a bit. At one point I saw objects flying both ways...

UW-Stevens Point (where I went to college) hockey fans (college and alumni section called the Rowdy Crowd) were the worst I have ever seen. They were so hostile families wrote into the local paper saying they couldn't bring their kids to the games anymore because of the violent and vulgar language and actions against the other teams and their fans. Many times they would try to start fights after the games as well because they were so drunk at the games. Those games were so fun to attend.

Went to a White Sox game as part of a Little League contingent that filled the left field upper deck at old Comiskey. A buddy and I went to get a soda between innings and I ended up buying a batting helmet. Bad idea. I got mugged by a group of kids before I could leave the concession area. Goodbye batting helmet. Sox fans could be pretty nasty.

Oh, and the 1980 Miami game at Florida Field. That one I worked for the Sun. Tough, tough UF crowd. We were getting punked by Jim Kelly & Co. in the fourth quarter when UF students in the East stands did something I thought not possible. They began bombing the Miami bench with oranges over the Canes earning an apparent Orange Bowl bid. (Don't ask how they got those things into the stadium.)

An angry Schellenberger retaliated by ordering a FG with a few ticks left. To this day, I'm not sure how he got out of the place alive.

Men don’t use the words “verbally abusive” to describe other guys taking shots at us or being rude.

Sounds you might fly a little both ways yourself.

Being inside Ben Hill Griffin stadium should be a cake walk for you compared to how much you’ve been inside your sister.
