Rejoice! It’s almost college basketball season. And though most people tend to hold out until the big tourney starts in March to give a damn, we’re Kentucky alums, so the season couldn’t come soon enough for us!
As students around the country start pulling double duty sporting events, tailgating for football, and ending up in the student section behind a basket, it’s time to give you the ones that do it best.
It’s always great seeing the ones that paint-up and wave signs, but to make the cut, it takes a little more creativity than that.
Here are the most outrageous college basketball fans in the land. Hopefully you never have to cross them up anytime soon.
5. Michigan State
There’s one thing that stands out about the fans at this arena; the fans are right on top of you.
Though the aptly-named “Izzo-one” is full of undergrads who roar from the time they get to their seats until the conclusion of the game, even the blue blood alums and boosters along the sideline are sporting their team’s colors, offering noise to cheer on their Spartans.
That’s pretty cool to see.
