Default ESPN - Most hated NCAA programs

Ohio State, USC top targets of fans' ire

The college football team fans love to hate? The discussion used to begin and end in South Bend. But Notre Dame's drop in the polls also has caused the Irish to drop in my rankings that are topped by college football's Public Enemy No. 1.

1. Ohio State
Many college football fans are hoping they don't have to watch the Buckeyes lose in the BCS championship game again. Most of those same fans only wish their teams had gotten there the last two seasons.

2. USC
No team has been as dominant during the last decade as the Trojans. A lot of fans wonder why the NCAA hasn't taken a closer look at how USC has done it.

3. Notre Dame
The Fighting Irish used to own the top spot on this list. Notre Dame used to win a lot more games, too.

4. Florida
The Gators don't get opposing fans' blood boiling as much as they used to -- like when former coach Steve Spurrier was taking jabs at many of his team's opponents. But many fans just can't believe quarterback Tim Tebow is really that good.

5. Oklahoma
The Sooners might be Ohio State Lite. Bob Stoops keeps getting his teams to BCS bowl games, but somehow keeps losing them.

6. Michigan
Add another fan base -- West Virginia -- to the growing allegiance of Wolverine haters.

7. Texas
Fans who hate the Longhorns are more envious than anything else. Everything is bigger in Texas, including the recruiting base, coaching salaries and tradition.

8. Alabama
Many college football fans are tired of hearing about Paul "Bear" Bryant. The Crimson Tide will never stop talking about him.

9. Miami
Coach Randy Shannon has gone a long way in cleaning up the Hurricanes' off-field image. Unfortunately, there was two decades' worth of garbage to clean up.

10. Tennessee
Unless you're a Volunteer fan, "Rocky Top" might sound like Sheryl Crow covering Guns N' Roses.

I LOVE it!

I knew we are onto something good when Jeremy sprayed his vile venom all over OSU.

I guess I'm odd... as a Wolverine fan, I really only hate OSU once a year. The rest of the time, meh. Same with PSU... I just like to hear the guys at the hosie make excuses when they lose.

I'm not allowed to say this, but I pull for the Wolverines as well. I want them ranked as high as possible and hopefully undefeated when we ruin their season every Thanksgiving.

I root for the Big 11 during bowl season. When they play the buckeyes, that's a different story.

I don't really care about the haters. We'll just keep winning games and going to BCS Bowls. Sure, we have lost 2 straight title games, but that's two more then anybody else. Besides, until 07, we hadn't lost a bowl game since Tressel's first year I think.

I thought they made the national championship in his first year? I know that was the year Adam T. from Penn State had has carrier shot.

I don't know why you can't say that...as a Bucks fan, I'm in the exact same boat. Once it turns to Bowl season, it's all Big-10 (11) for me. I loved watching UM destroy Florida. I want to see Penn State crush whomever their opponent is. Wisconsin becomes the Big Cheese for me.

OSU just happens to look like a team on the verge of being the NCAA version of the Buffalo Bills. Of course we're going to be hated. We'll be hated by #3-119 every year, and that's just fine by me!

If they can roll into LA and beat USC, there's no reason they can't run the table and play in the NCG again. And the odds are long that they are going to keep losing these games. With all that returning talent on the defensive side of the ball, and all that senior leadership they are going to be EXTREMELY difficult to beat. And the teams has played in HUGE games, so they aren't going to feel the pressure like other teams might.
