PHOTO: Michigan Wolverines football REALLY HATED in Nevada



There must be a lot of Ohio transplants living in Las Vegas. Maybe some Ohio State and Michigan State alumni snowbirds have relocated to Sin City. How else do you explain the hatred the state of Nevada has for Michigan Wolverines football?

Take a look at the Reddit college football tweetpic of their poll, in map form:

You’ll notice a lot of teams are, unfortunately for them, the most hated teams in their own state. That makes sense, and doesn’t make at the same time; for Florida, Texas, Kentucky, North Carolina, Florida, BYU, USC…well a whole bunch. And the interstate rivalries seem to hold for the most part. But the Michigan Wolverines backlash in the Silver State?

I don’t get it. Can someone explain that to me?


Don’t get me wrong, there is ample reason to hate the Michigan Wolverines…I just don’t understand why that state in particular does!

  1. Two reasons.
    1. Ohioans are scattered all over the country because Ohio sucks so bad they just have to leave.

    2. Most Osu fans just don’t have any class and can’t keep their mouths shut.
