Does your program/fans care more about basketball or baseball?


I know for South Carolina fans, most of us care more about baseball, but those of us who were around during the Frank McGuire days still care about basketball.

I spoke with some LSU fans in Hoover last year and they told me they cared more about baseball than basketball. Is that the general consensus among LSU fans?

I think most Miss State fans seem to care more about baseball than basketball, I could be wrong.

Not sure about Florida, Georgia, Bama, Auburn, Tennessee, etc.

I do know Kentucky and Mizzou probably put basketball before anything else, but most definitely before baseball.

Vandy fans? Tough call.

Arkansas fans are pretty serious about both from what I've been able to tell, but you gotta choose one or the other.

Ole Miss black bears? I'm not sure about y'all either.

A&M folks seemed pretty intense about their baseball team out in Omaha a couple of years ago. I know they like their women's basketball, but I am not sure where they rank their baseball in the overall scheme of things.

We do both and it shows each year in the national attendance rankings.

We go to baseball games then basketball.

Actually there is a slight edge to Football believe it or not. But a statistical tie, nonetheless.

I love baseball, just don't watch much college baseball.

Honestly, I have real problem caring about baseball unless its the Cardinals.

However, the Cardinals have drafted a couple of choice SEC players in the past few years. I might actually become interested.

If we can become a consistent tourny team under Martin basketball support will even out if not surpass baseball support.

Baseball fo sho. Maybe the new basketball arena can change the culture, but I doubt it. I haven't been to a bball game in years and won't get to go to one this year either...

Yeah its a shame too as good as that team has gotten + its not a bad venue. (checked it out when I went down to the football game this past season)

I knew UF didn't support baseball much when it was ranked #1, hosting Miami in the post-season, and the venue was only half full.

For any school that has even a semi-relevant basketball program, college basketball > college baseball.

The LSU fans won't like this one bit.
