With March Madness tipping off, we turn to Ranker’s voters to learn more about college basketball and what to expect in this year’s tournament!
Which college basketball fan base wears their pride the best way? We all know the traditional powers in college basketball, but sometimes their gloating can be a bit much. In two separate lists, Ranker visitors ranked which college basketball team was the best, and which had the most annoying fans. When we combine these two lists, we can see which team is best respected for its prowess on the court and how this relates to how annoying its fans are to the rest of the world. As it happens, powerhouse bluebloods Duke and Kentucky are ranked among the top teams for both being historically successful, and for having annoying fans. The most successful team with only moderately annoying fans is North Carolina. The least annoying but still respected team fan base was Villanova. Ohio State and Florida stand out for having annoying fans, but not particularly respected as programs overall.
