Barry Switzer is still popular in Oklahoma. He is a natural salesman. He is a cross between your favorite uncle and the village idiot.

A few good ones:

Quote:— Ohio State Buckeyes: The Urban Meyer/Zach Smith debacle of 2018, plus Brutus the Buckeye is the most ridiculous mascot in all the land. I mean, it’s a nut with a face on it.

Quote:— Notre Dame Fighting Irish: They haven’t been relevant since Sean Astin starred as Rudy Ruettiger in that 1993 movie, yet they act like because they have Touchdown Jesus that they’re somehow special.

Quote:— USC Trojans: The pretty boys on the West Coast still won’t move on from Pete Carroll’s team in the 2000s. There’s not much to see in the Pac-12 these days, especially at USC.

I like the one for Penn State. But, honestly, aside from that one park with a beautiful lake and shooting range, you don’t want to know what’s around there.

This one seems random; why us?

My most hated team is that purple place down the road in Conway, AR. The one with that horrendous purple and gray striped football field.

Hint: his response will involve moving half of Division 2 into the Sun Belt


Thank you. I wasn’t aware of any other Wonder Boys here

I actually laughed a little at the post because I have a feeling I know the reason behind it; and it was odd that a person who supports big D1 SMU would say little D2 Arkansas Tech is their most hated team. Yeah, I am an old ATU football letterman.

Barry Switzer still appears on Nebraska’s jumbotron once in a blue moon as one of those celebrity hypeups. They give him an ovation.

RE: Most hated teams in college football
I brought up Barry Switzer. He tended to be in the grey-area and his players sometimes followed suit. But here is a few sentences of his bio:

Barry and his brother were at home in rural Arkansas when it was raided by the Arkansas State Police. They found untaxed contraband liquor in the home. His father was tried and convicted of illegal trafficking in alcohol for purposes of re-sale ("bootlegging"). He was sentenced to a term of five years in prison, but that conviction was reversed upon appeal. His father did serve five months and as a result missed seeing Barry play his senior season of high school football. Barry and his brother were at home with their mother when in 1959 she took her life by her own hand with a .38 caliber pistol on the back porch. In 1972 Barry's father was murdered by a jealous lover

That he could overcome that and achieve the success he did (3 NCAA championships, 1 Super Bowl championship, College Hall of Fame) deserves some respect even as he deserves fair criticism for at times losing control of his players.

I admit, I like it when Duke and Michigan lose.

I found the fan of a team rebuilt by Bob Huggins griping about student athletes quite humorous! That fan must have a short memory.

Mutual respect. OU and Nebraska never hated each other. We played a decades-long series of games at the end of the season with conference and national championship implications. We lost that when we moved to the Big 12. We'll never get that back.

In 1980, the winner of the OU-Nebraska game went to the Orange Bowl, while the loser went to the Sun Bowl. On the Friday night before the game, retired coach Bob Devaney had a pineapple on his TV show, which he intended to give to Barry Switzer to eat while the Huskers were in Miami. Switzer walks on stage with a bag of tacos and gives them to Devaney, telling him that they'll enjoy El Paso. OU won the game and went to the Orange Bowl.

Speaking of Nebraska, it's interesting that though it's been 18 years since they played for a NC, they still show up in a list of top 10 most hated teams. On the other hand, Clemson, with all their recent success, does not show up on this list.

You want to know who the bluebloods are-just look at this list.


Alabama
Ohio St.
Notre Dame
Penn St.
Michigan
USC
Texas
Oklahoma
Nebraska

I think Alabama and Ohio St. were so high because they have won so much lately. Penn St. because of Sandusky. 10 years ago, it probably would have been 1. Notre Dame 2. Michigan. 3. USC 4. Texas

Here is a map of them, actually I don’t see why Montana hates UW, and if BYU was in the MW they would be in Wyoming also. Out west people cannot stand their arrogance, drama and dirty play.

I'm actually shocked that Ohio State wasn't the most hated team in South Carolina. Despite having never beaten either in state team the Suckeye fans who have left Ohio to move to South Carolina and those who only vacation here have made such an imprint that it spawned stuff like this:

But I understand why South Carolina is up there. They've done more to marginalize every state supported institution that wasn't under the UofSC label and just about as much to marginalize every UofSC institution that wasn't UofSC-Columbia that it's understandable why they are the most hated.

I wish the state of Utah focused on P12 schools to hate (USC, Washington, Oregon seem look good choices), same with Colorado. Also kinda funny the state of New Mexico hates Baylor.
