10 Most loyal fanbases? We're number......
 
Five.

Don't know who came up with this but it includes a comment that

"This is a loyal fan base that deserves a championship contending program."

Nice. Cool to be up there with traditional powers such as Alabama, Nebraska, etc.

And look who ISN'T on the list. :woo::kill:

There was a time many years ago when Catholics were the predominant religion in the US and every one of them wanted their kids to play ball at Notre Dame.

Penn State sure is never before I had seen such a despicable fanbase, they showed their true colors with the Sandusky scandal. But the Bama, Nebraska, and ND being at the top doesn't shock me at all, they should be called most likely to bandwagon fanbases.

I figured this would find its way on here.

Which demonstrates that you know absolutely nothing about the topic of the article.

Notre Dame fans are pretty bandwagon.

As are Bama football and Kentucky basketball.

Yeah, there's a difference between loyal fans and bandwagon fans. The poor sucks sitting in the snow watching Buffalo play are more loyal than the sunshine fans of Bama.

Will someone take a minute and explain to me this notion of Bama fans are bandwagon fans?

They're a a large amount of them and they show up more as they win.

Your bandwagon is huge.
There are people up here with no real connection to the school or state that are Bama fans.

I'm not saying nothing is wrong with that, with success comes bandwagon fans (Yankees, Lakers, Celtics, Patriots etc)

Quite serious. Even you can chime in if you like.

Now, if you're saying there are fans that have jumped on the Bama bandwagon, that's one thing.

Saying Bama football fans are bandwagon fans is something completely different.

You're making the distinction between fans jumping on the bandwagon versus calling Bama fans, bandwagon fans.

There's a very loyal fan base associated with the program. There has been for years. One only has to look at something like merchandise sales as one example of proof. Even when the program was down those numbers consistently ranked at the top of collegiate football sales.

My mistake. Would you like me to rephrase it then?
They have a large bandwagon.

Is that better for you?

Satiates curiosity; that's never a bad thing.

Bama fans are what we call "Wal-Mart fans". They're called that because the Bama stuff was cheaper than the Auburn stuff at Wal-Mart.

In all fairness, all SEC fans have a contingent of those, excepting possibly Vandy.
