NCAA's Best College Fan Base: Penn State or Michigan?
Many sports fans claim to love their teams, but there is no community more passionate about their clan than college sports fans. Whether its the sweet smell of an irresistible tailgate or the eardrum-shattering chants at a game, fans of NCAA sports know how to have a good time.
Despite having larger venues in college football, fans have no trouble filling the seats and making their environment as inhospitable as possible. We at the Tylt love college sports fans, and their rapid support of their teams. And that's why we want to know who is the loudest and proudest 12th man in the NCAA. Will your team win?
Here, we have the Penn State Nittany Lions vs. Michigan Wolverines. Penn State killed Wisconsin in its first round matchup with 84.8 percent of the vote. Michigan also dominated in the first round, beating Oregon with 78.3 percent of the vote to advance to the second round. Who will make it to the final four?

You can call Penn State whatever you want, but don't call them disloyal. Anyone can be a fan during a national championship season, but it takes a real fan to stick with your team after one of the most disgusting scandals of recent memory. Despite the country wagging their collective figures at Penn State, fans just rallied around each other and protected the team.
Every Saturday, over 100,000 fans pack an actual field made for tailgating before heading into Beaver Stadium. Being a part of Penn State is like being a part of a family of millions.
It's tough to fill a nearly 110,000 seat stadium (hell, the Los Angeles Chargers struggle to sell out 27,000 seats), but somehow Michigan fans do it every Saturday. Michigan Stadium is an ocean of blue and maize with the sound of over 100,000 fans reverberating through Ann Arbor. A lot of fan bases claim to have an army of fans. Michigan is one of the only fan bases with the numbers to prove it.
While a huge fan base can have some bad apples in its ranks, Michigan fans are generally some of the most welcoming fans in the country. Maybe that's why people keep joining their legion in droves.
