    Who is America's favorite college Team.

    Who is the most followed team with the largest national fan base? I am sure many still think it is ND or Michigan,Souther Cal or Texas. In my humble opinion,I say it is our beloved Alabama Crimson Tide.

    i think we are pretty high up there but ND is probably the highest, as much as it pains me to say it

    Well, it's anecdotal, but I get a lot of positive comments up here in Kentucky....and just look at our eclectic Nationwide and even multi national membership of TideFans.com. The Alabama Crinson Tide brand is know virtually everywhere!

    Re: Who is America's favorite college Team.

    One team that might surprise you is Florida. Maybe it's just an Indiana thing, but I meet more Florida fans up here than any other out of state fans. Oregon is another team that is taking the nation by storm, although they seem to appeal to more of the younger generation. UNC is a team that I see a lot of gear for, but that is in relation to their success in basketball. One other remote team I see a lot of up here is Texas. Not so much as they used to since they've recently fallen off, but for a while there you couldn't go anywhere without seeing Texas gear.

    As far as a national fans base - that's not what Alabama has ever been. I don't think that's what we want to be either. The national media (ESPN, etc.) has never apreciated a "podunk" school stealing the market form the "bigger, better," more marketable schools.

    Well, Bama is my favorite team...and I make allowances for those that think otherwise...they're obviously a few bricks shy of a load when it comes to college football.

    I see a fair share of Bama gear in my local travels. My fav. is the houndstooth gear. You really have a nice moniker going. Functional - yet also fashionable!

    Don't care about the rest of America and I'm sure they don't care about Bama, but I've followed Bama since the day I started loving sports. Fell in love at age 8 and been that way ever since!

    I'm doing my best to spread the word in Minnesota. Given the competition, I think Bama is probably as popular as the Gophers are here.

    Re: Who is America's favorite college Team.

    Today I went into Champs for some Christmas shopping and one of the employees complimented me on my Alabama hat and he wasn't even a Bama fan. He said as I was leaving "Don't let Notre Dame spoil the New Year for you" and I responded "I'm not too worried about it."

    I've got many people yelling "Roll Tide" the past couple weeks. I guess more people want Alabama to win than the media lets on.

    To answer the question, I'll say Alabama is America's favorite based on personal encounters.

    I'm hocked that a board called Tidefans would think the Alabame brand is on top. Look how many posters here still say ND! No surprise here. Notre Dame is a national school. Ask the same question on Penn St or USC boards and you'll get 10 ND's to every Bama.
