Oregon’s fans rated fourth-most obnoxious by Thrillist

As Oregon fans rally around the Ducks in the NIT, those in Matthew Knight Arena have just been ranked as the fourth-most obnoxious in the nation by Thrillist.

From Thrillist:

Oregon fans are the basketball equivalent of the kid who drives a Bugatti to school, treats everyone like shit, then can’t figure out why he has no friends. They’ve won exactly zero national championships since America’s participation in World War II, and yet Duck fans still think Brazilian wood floors and individual TVs in the locker room make it an elite program. Which they think justifies their behavior, like shoving opposing fans into urinals, reminding them “Ted Bundy was a Husky.” Or spitting on opposing players sitting on the bench, or yelling “benchwarmer bitch” at opposing walk-ons as they step onto the court. These diehards have no problem leaving games at halftime if the team is behind, though. The Ducks are, at best, a distant third program in the Pac-12 over the past couple decades, but the fans still scream to fire the coach after a mediocre season, somehow believing Phil Knight’s money should be able to buy them Phil Jackson.

Well, Oregon fans get their next chance to prove that writer wrong on Sunday when the Ducks play Marquette in the second round of the NIT.

Here’s the full list from Thrillist:

  1. Maryland
  2. Butler
  3. Duke
  4. Oregon
  5. North Carolina
  6. West Virginia
  7. UTEP
  8. Gonzaga
