Graphs excite me, and the posts on fan affiliations provided a good representation of the OTE community. But I wondered about B1G fans at large, so I wanted to look at data that wasn't skewed by large numbers of Iowa/OSU responses. For example, OSU responders went 7/7 primarily hating Michigan, and while there does seem to be a lot of Michigan hate out there, I thought it was being overrepresented.
So last night I went through both posts regarding fan affiliations and collected responses. Then I normalized secondary loves, primary & secondary hates. To do this, I divided a given voter's responses by the total number of respondents from their school. This treats each school as a single voter, with their love and hate doled out to other schools in fractions. For example, Purdue had three responders. They broke down like this:
Secondary love: 2 MSU, 1 UW = 0.67 MSU, 0.33 UW
Primary hate: 2 IU, 1 UW = 0.67 IU, 0.33 UW
Secondary hate: 2 OSU, 1 IU = 0.67 OSU, 0.33 IU
You get the idea.
First of all, the primary fan affiliations, as of something like 8 pm last night:
A few details:
- In a given chart (except primary love), all of the columns should add up to eleven (Illinois didn't vote). But they don't, because some people didn't respond to all four questions.
- In some cases people listed a tie between two hated schools. I marked the first school primary hated, the second secondary. There's a subconscious reason you put them in that order.
