It's not a map of fan interest, just geographical distance to a stadium.

It actually doesn't match it, but you have to account for out of state alumni &, of course, t-shirt fans. Like Georgia Tech for example. I've heard that many GT alumni & students are very arrogant, (not all, but a lot) and that in turn, has made it a lot harder to win over the casual t-shirt fan. Go to a UGA game, and generally, if you're not wearing UF, AU, or GT colors, you will be treated very nice, and should have a good time. Similar situation if you go to a Nebraska or even an Auburn game. Troy alumni also treat their t-shirt fans well. If Minnesota alumni are anything like GT alumni, it is no wonder that they have a small fan base.

For Texas, at least, this map comes nowhere close to being a map of fan interest. I think the maps for Minnesota, Wyoming, and U-Washington at the very least also come nowhere close, way too big, while others like Ohio State and Alabama, Ole Miss and Florida/FlaSt are way too small. LaTech bigger than LSU? Wyoming bigger than Alabama and Oklahoma combined?

I actually made a college football fan interest map using some more accurate fan interest maps and input from posters on the realignment board. I wound up changing my map several times, but I think it's a lot more representative of the college football fan bases than some others out there. It has multiple small logos for national fan bases too.[Image: fanbase3_3.png]

We (message board fans) tend to think in terms of it's my team and no one else...if you are for anyone else you are against us.

Just a guess on my part but if you separated fans into two groups..."my team", the really hard core fans or "my teams" the average fan it would be

25% hard core

75% average fan that is a fan of most other state schools

That's the way it is in my everyday life. 75% of those like Western, uk, UofL, they might have a favorite but also a fan of the others. I don't think it would be much different anywhere

As far as Louisiana is concerned I can't say you're wrong, although I have started to notice a lot more Tech blue in Shreveport/Bossier than before.

I would say that's fairly accurate. All colleges have alums in other areas, some get concentrated a bit. Its arguable at best where the mini logos need to go. One needs to take into account though, the size of the area you may cover with fans doesn't dictate the population density of the area to mean a school has more fans than another if ones area is bigger than another.

Not bad. I would expand the TexTech and A&M areas in Texas, but overall a good representation. I am impressed with the little BYU area in west Texas.
