It's the holiday season, and we're all familiar with the saying "it's better to give than to receive", however, 30 percent of college football fans apparently don't agree with that. It was revealed in a Discover Fan Loyalty Poll that 30 percent of fans would rather have their favorite team win a BCS National Championship than give a gift to a loved one.
As for the remaining majority, 61 percent of fans say they would much rather give a gift to a loved one than have their team win a national championship. The remaining minority of fans couldn't decide between the two choices.
In a separate poll, it was revealed that an overwhelming majority of college football fans would love to become the head coach of their favorite team and lead them to victory, as 83 percent of them said they'd love to be a head coach. On the flip side, only 9 percent of fans would rather take over their rival's team and sabotage their chances of victory.
It seems that the vast majority of college football fans love the underdog, as 77 percent of fans root for the underdog when their favorite team isn't playing. Surprisingly, the minority of college football fans are front-runners, as only 10 percent of them said that they always cheer on the dominant team when their favorite team isn't playing. Also, the remaining 13 percent said that they were unsure.
After a long reign on top, fans have finally decided that the Alabama Crimson Tide are no longer the best team in the country, as 30 percent of fans selected the Florida State Seminoles as the best team in the country right now. Coming in 2nd are the Auburn Tigers with 24 percent of the votes, 3rd are the Alabama Crimson Tide with 15 percent of the votes, then Michigan State with 7 percent, followed by Stanford with 4 percent.
While fans believe that Florida State is the best team in the country, 50 percent of fans think that Auburn will defeat them in the BCS National Championship game, while 44 percent picked Florida State to win it all, and the remaining 6 percent were unsure.
