First there was Norwalk’s Bear Pack. Then came Ridgefield’s Tigers Lair, Westhill’s Purple Pack and Stamford’s Black Knight Nation, just to name a few. At a time of apathy, students, making use of social mediums like Twitter and Facebook, have created passionate fan sections that have been coming out to support their basketball and hockey teams.
After a Twitter debate on Sunday, I had hoped to create Overtime Fan Week, and have a contest to determine which fans were the best. But schools were worried that crowd control issues would be a problem.
So the only solution, as imperfect as it is, is to create this poll: Which FCIAC school has the best student fan section? The one that comes out on weekday as well as weekend nights? The one that is the loudest? The one that travels to road games?
We are offering you a choice of all 19 teams and you have until Friday at noon to vote.
So, which FCIAC school has the best student fan section?
