Could be worse, they could be jangling their keys...

Here is why Los Angeles fans are the worst in the country:

UCLA is undefeated, #8 in the land and coming off a 6-6 season in 2004. Fans should be fired up, right? Well, for their game last weekend against an Oregon State team with a winning record, a key conference game, they only drew an "announced crowd" of 49,932 to the Rose Bowl.

Granted, the Rose Bowl in Pasadena is about a three day bus trip from UCLA's Westwood campus but still. Forty-nine thousand? To a 100,000 person stadium? To see a top 10 team? Ok, that's worse than "key play" fans.

Students are meant to walk to the game. This is what happens when you don't have a real stadium on campus.

Right. And a student body comprised of 75% Asian kids who don't know anything about football.

Loeff, I think that's the real reason the University of Chicago gave up football.

Anon's right, you can't expect college students to get up Saturday morning and drive 45 minutes to an hour to get to their college stadium. That's lame.

But it's not just the stadium location. It's LA fans in general. Loef was just telling me that there are still USC tickets for sale to their game against Fresno State. Lame.

Look at me, I'm so youthful and supple.
