Lee knows what he's talking about as he is around "Rowdy" football fans constantly. LSU is by far the most obnoxious, rowdiest football fans in college football. They will cuss you out and throw things at you!! This is from personal experience. I hope Alabama gets even with them on December 9th!!

Obnoxious? Cuss & throw things at other people? I live here & have been a Tiger fan my whole life. We root behind our football teams, we have tailgate parties, we celebrate wins harder than anyone else, but i wouldn't go so far as to say that. Sorry if you had some kind of bad experience, but it's not like that at all here. THANK YOU. I haven't even watched the above clip, cause i already knew what the answer was. We're number 1, no reason to be mad =)

LSU is widely known to be rude and obnoxious. I was at the Bama/LSU game, and there were grown men yelling expletives at my 13 year old nephew. Another random person I met recently said a drunk LSU fan tried to pick a fight with them and then called his Mother (who he had brought to the game) a c*nt. I know several other people with these types of stories. Utterly classless. Of course, not all the fans are that way but reputations come in to being for a reason.

Being a die-hard Tiger I must say that there are more courteous and fun loving LSU fans than there are rude and obnoxious . Don't judge us all by what some have experienced. We love our Tigers, love to tailgate and have a good time but we are also known as some of the friendliest fans to rivaling opponent tailgaters. We tailgate and usually have just as many opposing team fans having a great time partying with our LSU tailgaters. Most just hate right now because we are the best in the nation, so many people hate to see LSU be on the top in any sport, we are used to it though. So with that said, bring on Bama. We're so nice, we'll beat them twice!!! Geaux TIGERS

As a loyal LSU fan and alumni I have to disagree with the comments that we are rude and obnoxious. We do get rowdy, and we do party....but thats about the extent of it. Ever heard of Southern hospitality? When we tailgate we offer opposing fans beer and food. We have been known as THE party school for years!! I didn't have to watch the clip above either. If you watch College Game Day on Saturdays you know how they feel about the Tigers. Sorry you had a bad experience, but that is not the general behavior of LSU fans. And on January 9th I will be there to cheer the Tigers on as the defeat Alabama for a 3rd time in a row( even though they shouldn't even be in this game) GEAUX TIGERS!!!

I knew what he was going to say before I watched the clip! As for all the negative comments concerning my hometown and alma mater, y'all are being totally unfair. It stinks that you've had a bad experience, but having a terrible time at an LSU game is certainly the exception rather than the rule-no matter which team you're rooting for. We're definitely rowdy, but it's all about cheering on our favorite team, having a good time with friends, and eating some of the most delicious food you'll find anywhere at our awesome tailgate parties! There's nothing angry or mean-spirited about it. That said, laissez les bon temps rouler and Geauxxx Tigers!!!!!

LSU is by far the rudiest, most classless fan base. No contest. They are a bunch of drunk, in-bred, Billy Bod idiots.

Here is a true story about the Oregon vs LSU game in Dallas earlier this year. My wife and I attended the game as Oregon fans, wearing Oregon gear. We are in our mid 50's. We decided to walk around the inside of Cowboy stadium to view it prior to the game. On multiple occasions, LSU fans came up to us, pointed fingers in our faces screaming Tiger Bait, Tiger Bait. One woman actually got within a few inches of my wife's face screaming at her. Purple clad LSU fans surrounded us and applauded, laughed, and urged her on. We tried to move away to prevent any altercation, but the drunken LSU fans followed us. Finally, I got in front of her and said unless she backed off I would get the police and have her arrested. The LSU fans were so drunk and out of control, a fight could have started with the slightest provocation. These types of fans prior to the game were prevalent everywhere. They were drunk, arrogant, rude, and classless. We never saw the stadium but when we got to our seats we watched an LSU fan scream at a Duck fan standing to applaud a play. The LSU fan (with other LSU fans urging him on) said this: "Hey Boy, you sit your ass down, you hear Boy, or I will come down to your row and throw you over the fxxxing railing"
I've been going to football games, pro, high school, and college for 40 years and the only thing close to that experience were drunken Oakland Raider fans. I wish I had video of the experience to put up on YouTube so you at LSU can see yourself for what you are, an un-mannered, uncouth, drunken, purple clad jerks that are disrespected by the rest of the SEC and non-SEC for who you actually are and how you actually act. You are the worst and deserve to be named as the most vile fans in the country. Congratulations!!
