Which is the most hated college football team in Florida?


It is easy to hate another state’s favorite school, but why does Florida hate their own kind?

Campus Rush released a map revealing the most hated college football team in each state with Florida despising ... [drum roll]... the Florida State Seminoles over every other team. The most disliked team overall is the Ohio State Buckeyes, who don’t have many fans in Illinois, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan or Wisconsin. The defending national champion Alabama Crimson Tide are most hated in six states: Alaska, Louisiana, Nevada, South Dakota, Tennessee and Vermont.

The third-most-hated team is the Michigan Wolverines, who are most disliked in Indiana, Maryland, North Dakota and (shocker) Ohio. Other teams hated in their home states are Auburn, BYU, Ole Miss, Texas and USC.

The poll was compiled from 5,000 votes, with the Buckeyes being hated the most by 11.2 percent of the participants. The Seminoles don't seem to generate much hate in other states, but they are probably disliked in their own state for their recent national championship and Jameis Winston’s constant off-the-field coverage.

Despite the rampant in-state hatred, Florida State just received a commitment from four-star safety Cyrus Fagan and has five-star defensive tackle Marvin Wilson visiting campus soon. Former cornerback Jalen Ramsey is also predicted to be a top-five pick in this year’s NFL Draft.
