College Football teams we can all root against

We're filled with hate. We hate bland food, Gap commercials and many college football teams.

Not really sure why we dislike certain teams -- do we root against uniform, players or both? Probably both. While every college football fan hates their rival, most fans can come together for some community hate.

The top five teams that we all can root against every Saturday:

5. Ohio State


Whether it's Jim Tressel's ridiculous sweater vest, Brutus Buckeye's nonsense or Ohio State just giving us lousy championship games far too often, the Buckeyes are worth rooting against just so we don't have to see them an SEC team after the new year.

4. Alabama


Between Nick Saban being an asshole and a Golden Retriever being able to successfully play QB for the Tide, there's nothing likable about this team. Except the numbers on the helmet. That's pretty cool.

3. Florida


Urban Meyer + Tim Tebow + two National Championships in three years (and maybe more) = a lot of hostility from everyone else.

2. USC


It's always been a running joke that LA still has a professional football team and they wear red and gold. We've actually sorta liked a lot of the players that have come through SC and we don't really have any problems with Pete Carroll. Yet when you win seven straight Pac-10 titles, go to seven BCS bowl games in a row and finish in the top five seven straight years, you're going to have a very big X on your back. And what's up with Will Ferrell and Snoop Dogg? Go make Old School 2 already and stay away from the football field.

1. Notre Dame


We really think our biggest problem with the Irish is that the BCS will do anything to get them into a major bowl game. They could be 10-2, with wins over the regular of Michigan State, Stanford, Navy, etc. and go to a premiere game when you leave the likes of Boise State, TCU and Utah out.

And when Brady Quinn is succeeded by Jimmy Clausen, you really just wanna sock Charlie Weis in the gut for recruiting such pompous pricks.

What teams do you root against? Share your hate in the comments...

Ohio State should be #1. Ohio State should definitely be #1.

HM said...

I'd say USC #1. Rooting against Notre Dame is like rooting against the Knicks in basketball because you hated how dominant they were in the 1970s. It seems like a really outdated thing to do.

SC though? Hey, what ever happened to the Reggie Bush case? I mean, an agent basically admitted that he gave improper payments -- any action NCAA?? Anything?? Nope, didn't think so.

And how is USC STILL a top 10 BCS team!?!? They suffered both an embarassing upset loss and Oregon beat them by like 1,000, but when Iowa loses by 7 on the road without their QB they drop WAY below USC!?!?!

Michigan should be included. And maybe any team coached by Mack Brown. Fucking lobbyist.

JMC said...

HM that's a good point about notre dame, but on the other hand, the media still slobs their knob like they're a perennial power, so it makes them easy to hate. Plus, fatso Weis is so annoying.

GMoney said...

Iowa lost at home, crazy person.

USC is despised because it tries to represent itself as more than a sports (in this case, football) college. It's a second tier academic institution in California, but don't ever tell anyone who went there that. Plus, OJ played at SC...Bush was paid to play, and they always squirt the rules .... enough said.

Ohio State has the most arrogant asshole fans

OSU sucks my nutsack

So if lousy bowl games is the criteria for Ohio State, why isn't Oklahoma on this list?

As far as the on-the-field product goes, the Sooners are far worse offenders of all the reasons people blast the Buckeyes for.

Bokolis said...

ND absolutely number 1, then Michigan, Nebraska. I realize these aren't exactly the most relevant, but the hate goes back a while for me.

We hate OSU because its fans are some of least knowledgeable football (maybe just in general) fans in the nation. Its impossible to go to the Shoe and not bump into 30,000 mustache havin rednecks who take time out from inbreeding to practice spelling their state...2 letters at a time. OH-IO!

We hate USC because all they need to do to get in the top 5 is, well, say they will play football this year. We also hate them b/c of the clone factory that they pull their NFL ready QBs, and for their uni's which are clearly the worst in the nation. Oh yeh, they are in LA too, how can anyone recruit against that?

We hate ND because its fans are clearly the most arrogant in the nation and filled with a laughable sense of entitlement. Is it a coincidence their latest attempt at a coach, Captain Front Butt, mirrors their fans exactly?? And other than Golden Taint, they seem to fill their roster with the world's biggest D Bags. If USC has a clone factory for NFL ready QB's, ND has one for over hyped lamers.

We hate Alabama because their coach is the biggest d*ck in the nation, and because we're actually scared of Alabama being a perennial powerhouse again.

We hate Florida because, like LA, how can our team recruit against that?? We hate them because their coeds put ours to shame. We hate them because yes they play an SEC schedule, but they schedule cotton soft out of conference teams that they then run up the score on. Its no wonder Tebow's stats are amazing, if coach lets you play 80% of the game against the Jr High squad yours would look pretty good too. Oh, and the need for the media to hype Tebow as either, one of, or THE greatest college football players of all time. All in the call for sensationalism. He's not, not even top 5.

The Sooners would like to remind you that they have lost 4 games by a total of 12 points, and would like you to consider including them on your ballot.

I've been to games and met fans from all of the schools on the list, and without a doubt the biggest douches are Ohio State fans. Ohio State is a clear #1.

Charlie Weis didn't recruit Brady Quinn. Try doing your homework before you publish.

HM said...

My mistake -- Iowa lost at home, by 7, to a winning team. I see now how that is far worse than USC getting destroyed by 20+ and also losing to a 3-6 team.

Mike L said...

Oregon.

Nike run propaganda machine.

WCT said...

I really don't understand the OSU hate...

"Whether it's Jim Tressel's ridiculous sweater vest, "

Um, ok. You hate Ohio St. because their coach dresses like a high school gym teacher? Uh, I guess I have no argument against that.

"...Brutus Buckeye's nonsense..."

Every school has a stupid mascot. Do you hate Miami because that stupid bird pulls its beak apart?

"...or Ohio State just giving us lousy championship games far too often..."

I guess "once" constitutes "far too often." Shouldn't Oklahoma ('04) be on this list by that definition? And Nebraska ('01)?

Anonymous said...

Your list is okay... but you left off Michigan and Miami. I would remove OSU and USC essentially because OSU and USC are cool. The other five teams have no redeeming qualities. (okay maybe Miami is cool... but just too cool).

softball players said...

these football teams are very good, despite being handled in a non-professional category, the level is pretty good

Okay OSU should not even come close to the top 50. I'm from Ohio and I say Michigan should be in OSU's place. Also I am not some dumb f**k, who interbreeds and Jim Tressel's sweater vest, seriously your going to complain about what he wears. I think you OSU haters should not base your opinion of a whole group of people on one or a small group of people's actions.

I dont understand how people can hate a school that they have no part of. I am a big Ohio State fan and i could care less what you think of my school. Take your SEC warm climate i cant travel farther north than Nebraska ass some place else. SEC cant win any place but in the south. So stop hating on all the Ohio State fans and take it how it is. We are just better.

Matt said...

I'm from Michigan and Michigan Wolverines should be number one. I hate the wolverines and the spartans. ive been a die hard osu fan my whole life and for the sec. they play no body teams. put them up against a big ten school and see how fst they get destroyed.
