Infograph: How College Football Fans Dress by Region

Nice Move

When I saw this infograph detailing the regional attire trends of American college football tailgaters, I immediately thought of you guys and all the fashionista-driven shit you sling at each other. If nothing else, this will provide you assholes some more ammo to use, but I think you’ll enjoy it. It’s really well done.

The infograph is done by T.K. Roosevelt. Now, I have a qualm or two with the getup of the South Region fella, but by and large, I think he does a pretty good job.

Every year, fans across the nation gather for the finest tailgating in the country. NCAA® Football Fans across America have traits and styles that are specific to the regions where their schools are located. Some styles have become tradition and some, for better or worse, will pass within a year or two.

Using the latest data available on the internet and fan submissions from RSVLTS.com, we’ve teamed up with Wheat Thins to launch the Bold Tailgate Awards. Our NCAA® Football Fan analysts have dissected each region’s style to give you a detailed look at college football trends across America.

    As a tailgater in the south, I can honestly say that the few people who dress like that to games are usually the ones who have no reason to be there. The majority of the tailgating population here dresses more like the southeast

    I go to a Midwest school and can tell you girls dress NOTHING like that for games, at least not in greek life. Only queers from Michigan and Indiana wear those goddamn overalls.

    How do people always fuck up the “midwest” region. Anyways, the dress for kansas st (south, wtf) is pretty spot on for my school. As for ku, I don’t think they got a large enough sample size of tailgaters to affect anything.

      Then how come you still play football in what looks like a high school stadium? Seriously, you have a track around your football field. Meanwhile, us “hayseeds” are adding a 75 million dollar expansion. Use some of that extra endowment and try not to embarrass the rest of the Big 12 with that dump you call a football stadium.

      Didn’t say it was an accurate description of mine. I definitely don’t abide by the “tuck”.

      “KansasIsFrat”- If you call tailgating a disbursement of mediocre house parties, yes I have been tailgating in those areas. Also, your name sounds like a pathetic attempt at validation, typical ku.

      Dude, you go to K State. Your fucking QB who is a Heisman frontrunner, national collegiate celebrity, and future NFL backup QB, used all of that power to hold a girls hand and peck her lips. If Colin Klein can’t get laid at that poor excuse of a woodshed that you call a University, how do you expect us to take your standard of what is and isn’t a Tailgate with any shed of seriousness?

      Our enrollment is actually up this year, and still about 6,500 higher than yours. Not to mention our endowment is roughly 3 times KState’s. Swing and a miss, champ.

      You know what, why don’t you just shut the fuck up. You’ve obviously never experienced game day north and west of the stadium in Lawrence.

      We seem to believe football has no importance. It pisses me off. And we’re getting ready to do a $200 million renovation and do away with the track.

      Yes, Collin Klein getting laid and tailgating have a direct correlation. He’s probably getting laid more than you anyways (marital sex FTW?)
