1. The University of Kentucky Big Blue Nation
Let’s clear the elephant out of the room, I’m hardly the first person to present the cold hard facts about UK and its preposterous fan base but you can’t make a slam list of KY without mentioning it. Each and every year Kentucky fans pull themselves up by the seat of their Buddy Lee jeans, tie the strings of their fluorescent white Sketcher’s, and adjust their ill-fitting blue windbreaker tightly over a stomach gasping for freedom against a black pleather belt to support their Cats.
They speak of football timidly, knowing full well that their team will crumble around mid October, but even in the silence of their gridiron defeat, you can hear the collective mouth breathing of Big Blue Nation waiting for basketball to start. We get it UK fans, you’ve won, you hired a mercenary to manipulate every loophole in the system to produce a college basketball juggernaut. Unfortunately for you, however, the relevance and popularity of college basketball is declining faster the high school graduation rate in the state.
