A few flippant tongue-in-cheek personal observations. These stereotypes are all in good fun on a Longhorn board, so don't get your panties in a wad... TCU--Rich kids who drive BMWs and snort much of their daddy's $ up their noses. Generally nice/friendly. Definitely not hostile. Pretty good tailgating. Gorgeous co-eds. SMU--See TCU, without the "generally nice" or good tailgating parts. They peg the meter on snob appeal. Couldn't get into Pepperdine. Tech--Rowdy, tortilla-throwing drunks. Big and dangerous home field advantage where strange things happen, the ball bounces in weird ways, etc. Baylor--Sanctimonious, self-righteous Baptists. Disturbing rape culture that is vehemently denied. Also see SMU (although, unlike SMU, a decent portion of their co-eds are very large women). Under the delusion that Grant Teaff was as great as DKR. Houston--Classless louts who don't deserve their teams' historical successes. Fair weather fans. Rice--Fan base, what fan base? Egg-headed brainiacs. Could beat you at chess. Very few in number. A&M--Country bumpkins and suburbanites who pretend to be country bumpkins. Cultish and weird. Bizarre acts in the stands by their "Corps". Blind irrational hatred for UT. Arkansas--Hostile out-of-staters. Toothless cousin-marrying rednecks. OU--See Arkansas above. West Virginia--See Arkansas above but not so hostile. Couch burners. Ohio State--Very hostile--even violent. You'd have to go to an English or South American football (soccer) match, or up the road 100 miles to Cleveland, to find a more hostile/violent fan base. Couch burners. Co-eds often outweigh our offensive linemen. Their fans seem to understand the game well though. Very passionate about the game. USC--A giant SMU with an excellent football program located in South Central Los Angeles. Arrogant. Tendency to mistake their top-5 historical program status for a clear and undisputed number 1--offended if anyone suggests otherwise. Smokin' hot co-eds. Good/catchy songs played by band (Tribute to Troy, Fight On). Fans show up late to games. LSU--Rabid, fanatical, drunk, and excellent tailgating cooks. Hot (and easy) co-eds. I like these folks (I hope my opinion remains the same after we play them again the next few times). Kansas State--Real nice bunch of folks. Cheer for their team, but they don't hate their opponents (maybe KU). OSU--We share a common rival. Fans like to wear boots. Nothing else really stands out to me about this fanbase. KU--Care about basketball. Barely care at all about football. Nothing else distinctive. ISU--See Kansas State above. Genuine small town and country types. Nebraska--See Kansas State, except they grew to dislike UT after we beat them so many times (they were used to being the top dog, or co-top dog with OU in the Big 8 days). Whiny. False sense of persecution. Vehement denials of their well-known history of cheating and steroids. Still nice people though. Notre Dame--Cool traditions. Great band. Nuns in the stands=slightly strange/creepy. Same center-of-the-universe view of themselves as USC. Notre Dame students and alums=generally good. Random fan who has never been to Notre Dame but likes them just because his ancestors were from Ireland=not so good. Colorado--Stoned. Show up late to games. Cool mascot.
