Who do you love and hate? The State of B1G Fandom: 2016 Edition

New, comments

Who do you love? Who do you hate? We want to know -- for science! Or...something. Maybe not science. But definitely hate!

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

Five years ago, one of my colleagues - the illustrious Hilary Lee - set out to answer an age old question: "Which B1G team do you hate the most?" It was a really interesting gauge of where allegiances stand across the OTE readership and at the time, pretty much everybody hated Michigan.

This is not a very big surprise, right? Like, we have a meme and everything. Still, you might be interested to see that many teams were not represented with quite the disdain and hatred that we will most likely see this time around.

And so, without further ado, let’s do an update. I’m keeping this survey open for a week. Please do me a favor and send it to any friend you have of a Big Ten team. Or like, if you work with people, ask them to fill it out too. I want this to be as comprehensive as possible. I have some predictions as to what this will end up looking like, but I won’t share until we get the data. Got it? Perfect. Look forward to reading the responses.
