You partied there a few times? Seems to me you are a fan by default.

A fake fan is one who only supports winning teams, and constantly jumps from one team to another. We call those bandwagon fans. I know you're familiar with the term. For me, my Dad went to LSU and I grew up watching LSU with him. I never went there, but they are the state school, and I've always loved them and do not pull for any other college team.

So if you have a problem with me calling myself an LSU fan, then I have a problem with you calling yourself a Saints fan. And for you to say "it wasn't like that in North Carolina" is bull crap. Yeah, you have more major universities there, but if you think that all fans of those teams went to those colleges, you are lying to yourself.

So I have a great idea, to remove all confusion. Why don't we all just pull for whoever we want to, and why don't you just find something else to complain about.
I have no problem with you, or anyone, calling themselves an LSU fan. Especially since you have the family tie. That makes perfect sense. I mentioned that as a qualifier earlier. What I don't understand are those that went to some other college, has no direct ties to LSU, and still calls LSU "their" team.

And, yes, I am very familiar with bandwagon fans. There are a lot of them here in northeast Louisiana. They are also known as Cowboys fans. A surprisingly large number of them are also LSU fans. They either never attended any college, or went to somewhere like La Tech or ULM (NSU).

And I know quite a few people from NC, and virtually all of their collegiate sports ties are either personal or familial. Many are split with some members being UNC fans and others being NCSU fans. Same with Duke, Wake Forest and ECU to a lessor degree. Much smaller schools so less of a fanbase.

As a side note, did you attend school elsewhere and if so, where?

17-2 Baby!

Not challenging fanhood, just saying that I don't understand being a fan of a college team with no ties whatsoever. Especially if said person did attend a school with a sports program elsewhere. That has the stench of "bandwagonism" to which burningmetal mentioned earlier. If LSU was perennially outside of the top 25 like, say, La Tech, would they still have the statewide following that they enjoy today?

You are confused... If La Tech had the history, was part of the SEC and beat Alabama, it would be a different story. But it ain't close.

It is all about the history, the SEC and the fact that the SEC is a Super Conference in college football. Do you realize that LSUs stadium holds 102,321 fans. You ever sit in the nose bleed seat? Wow... that is high.

Guido... you may need to go back to the Asylum on this one sir.
My bird feels insulted, and now has a neck ache.
