Auburn fans declared "The SEC's most obnoxious fans."

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution has declared fans of the Auburn Tigers "The SEC's most obnoxious fans." Columnist Mark Bradley invited readers to give their input on the list, though the final say in the matter was all his. Why did Auburn's fanbase get the nod?
  
"Because Tiger fans still worship at the tainted feet of Pat Dye. Because they run off coaches on a whim. Because they’ve grown as arrogant as Alabama backers without one-tenth the justification. Because they’re still whining over the national championship they didn’t win in 2004. Because the world’s worst fan — the Montgomery banker Bobby Lowder — is an Auburn man. And because I would pay money (though not a lot) to see Bobby Lowder in jean shorts."

Bobby Lowder reason would be enough for the title, even though he's kind of disgraced himself with the Colonial Bank failure. The demand to be crowned 2004 National Champion in the wake of the USC debacle seals the deal.
Auburn's followed on the list by Florida, Georgia, Arkansas, and Alabama in the top five.
