Default 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.

Why?

Because there is no doubt that they have had one of the largest and most loyal fan bases in college sports history.

There is an actual reason that they have their own TV contract and have no need to join a conference to make money or solicit new fans.

I personally can't stand ND but to deny their massive fan base the credit it deserves as it relates to the topic would be baseless.

For years their biggest fans have been ABC, NBC, and CBS.

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.

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.

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.

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)

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.

They have a large bandwagon.
