FanPost

Normalized Love/Hate

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:

Primary love

Love1_medium

The results:

Secondary love

Love2_medium

 

 

Primary hate

Hate1_medium

 

 

Secondary hate

Hate2_medium

 

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.
