Last place as an overall conference rival - 0.4%

And 4th place as rudest fans - 5.6% (And guess who's #1)

(Guess all that hoopla with Kansas was a little overblown... or past us)

Go to the CUSA conference, and look at who has the overwhelming #1 rudest fans.

lol ucf.

also no surprise miami has the rudest fans in the acc.

and more interestingly, how miami and VT are some of the highest rated rivalries even after being in the acc for only a few years now. i guess somewhat dominant teams rise to the top of the hatred ladder pretty quick.

LOL awesome, iowa has a pink visitors locker room. hahaha. another neat thing to having an OCS.

Connecticut: "When UConn's offense enters the Red Zone, the band plays a little tune and the crowd yells, "STICK IT IN! STICK IT IN, STICK IT IN!""

No wonder they have a gay looking mascot. Not that there is anything wrong with that.

What's up with all the Big East hate? All of the conferences, put the ACC in front of the BE. Some even put the WAC, MAC, CUSA, MWC and/or the Sun in front of the BE. Here is the breakdown by conference.

ACC - SEC, Big12, Pac10, Big10+, BE, MWC, Indy, WAC, MAC, CUSA, Sun

Big 12 - SEC, Pac10, Big10+, ACC, MWC, BE, Sun, WAC, Indy, MAC, CUSA

Big10+ - SEC, Big12, Pac10, ACC, MAC, BE, MWC, Sun, Indy, WAC, CUSA

PAC10 - SEC, Big12, Big10+, MWC, ACC, WAC, BE, Indy, Sun, CUSA, MAC

SEC - Big12, Pac10, Big10+, ACC, BE, MWC, Indy, Sun, CUSA, WAC, MAC

CUSA - SEC, Big12, Pac10, Big10, MWC, ACC, BE, WAC, Sun, Indy, MAC

MAC - SEC, Big10+, Big12, Pac10, ACC, BE, Sun, WAC, CUSA, MWC, Indy

MWC - SEC, Big12, Pac10, Big10+, ACC, WAC, Sun, Indy, BE ???, MAC, CUSA

Sun - SEC, Big12, Big10+, ACC, CUSA, Indy, BE, MAC, MWC, WAC, Pac10

WAC - SEC, Pac10, Big12, MWC, Big10+, ACC, Indy, MAC, BE???, Sun, CUSA

Indy - SEC, Pac10, Big10+, Big12, ACC, BE, MAC, MWC, Sun, WAC, CUSA

If you average out the rankings for where each conference was ranked (1 strongest, 11 weakest), then here is the result.

1.00 SEC

2.27 Big12

3.36 Big10+

3.55 Pac10

4.82 ACC

6.55 MWC

6.64 BE

8.00 Indy

8.45 WAC

8.73 Sun

9.09 MAC

9.55 CUSA

The SEC is the unanimous pick for strongest conference. The BE was the 5th to 9th ranked conference and came in 7th behind the ACC and the MWC. Well these are opinions, so how much winning on the field would it take to change the perception of the BE?

The WAC and the MWC are just jealous haters who wish they had an automatic qualifying bid. And they're stupid too because they keep pushing to have the Big East expelled from the BCS to let them in, but all along there is a seventh AQ bid available, without taking a conference out.

The BE plays good football. It's a very defensive minded league, but this year it has been very offensive as well. To me, the SEC/Big 11/Pac-10/Big 12 will always win stupid surveys like these because they have alot more teams and higher amounts of people voting on stuff like this. A majority of them know nothing about the Big East, save for the fact that Syracuse sucks, WVU has won it a few times with some Pat White guy, and the BE trumps them all when it comes to basketball season.

Most people hate on the BE, even amidst the winning bowl records, the great OOC records, the winning record AGAINST the SEC, and the amounts of NFL draft picks the BE pushes out. They view the four "noobies" of the BE as programs with no tradition (even though Cincinnati is one of the older football programs), and anytime someone has success, they play it off as a fluke or a one-hit wonder, but yet if a Vanderbilt team has a good year, it's because the conference is so strong. :\

I say **** 'em. We'll keep proving it on the field. We're slowly improving the bowls, and the teams are doing much better now, so it's just a matter of time until we have stolen enough spotlight to finally get some respect.
