It may not be scientific, but GQ's latest survey about the worst fans in the country is spot on.

The constant "Tiger bait" chants are annoying no doubt, as was the booing of quarterback Jordan Jefferson last season, not to mention the fans calling for Coach Les Miles' head: 10-2? 9-3? Sorry, not good enough.

And who could forget that proud 2005 moment when Tiger fans threw beer bottles at Tennessee's team bus, cracking windows.
