Interesting polling data from Arkansas
Asked who their favorite college team was,
51% picked the Hogs
13% AState
5% UALR

Now get those 148,000 UALR fans and 385,000 AState fans in the stands!

RE: Interesting polling data from Arkansas
Web polling a couple of years ago estimated we had about 320,000 self-identifying fans. Troy was estimated about the same. This poll seems to have generated similar results.

Except this was Arkansas only not national but the prior data was before Freeze.

I would say this is encouraging news for stAte. We are similar with one monolithic university that every fry cook and cashier is a fan. It's about winning the hearts and minds. That takes decades or a national championship. I would say stAte is moving on up! Does UALR really have 148,000 fans???? I forget that school is even there.

Second in state not bad. Auburn and Alabama of course loom heavily over Troy/USA. Irritates the crap out of me when someone comes to a Troy game wearing an Alabama or Auburn shirt .

Frankly, I am shocked that only 51% self-identified as Razorback fans. I knew that support was a mile-wide and an inch deep but 51% was surprising.

There were probably more, but they couldn't figure out how to complete the poll questionnaire.

Doesn't surprise me, the Nate Silver estimate in 2011 pegged Arkansas fan support at 990,000 but this poll would tab it at 1.5 million. That would mean at least a third of those self-identifying aren't big enough fans to have been picked up by Silver's data.

Silver's data in 2011 would have been based on 2010 when Arkansas was coming off a 10-3 season while AState was coming off consecutive 4-8.

Also looking at google data which is often used to gauge fan interest, astate is more searched than Arkansas state red wolves, few researchers would look for AState.

Agree, hate this. I call out my classmates for this behavior. Here it's tech/uva. I tell them "hey, you can transfer if you want" and they tend to give me some sob story about how they grew up a tech fan.

Usually it is "my dad and uncles are all blah blah fans".

I ask "would they stop bouncing you on their knee if you grew up and became a fan of your own school?"
