GQ: Maryland basketball fans among America’s worst

(Jonathan Newton/WASHINGTON POST)

Still and all, when Maryland basketball fans get named the fifth-worst fanbase in America, the local paper of record needs to make a record.

1. Philadelphia Phillies

2. Philadelphia Eagles

3. West Virginia Mountaineers

4. Oakland Raiders

5. Maryland Terps basketball

6. Boston Red Sox

7. Penn State football

8. Duke basketball

9. New York Yankees
