    Just back from IC

    And I have to say, I had a really good time outside of the game. We got invited to multiple tailgates, and all the hawk fans were really nice and cordial. I was really surprised.

    So if any hawk fans are reading, thanks! I have a lot of respect for you guys now.

    And wow, that stadium is so many light years ahead of ISU for concessions, restrooms, amenities, sound and music choice, and atmosphere.

    Glad you had a good time at Kinnick!

    Hopefully the new (not very well liked) tailgating rules will have some sort of effect in drawing attention to all the "knuckleheads"...

    There were cops EVERYWHERE, 10x what I have ever seen at ISU. They made a point to keep people off of the public streets and sidewalks with booze. But I did not see anyone have any issues.

    Yeah that is not going to happen. I was just surprised how much better we were treated than the last time I went to Kinnick in '98.

    Just got back too and I had a very similar experience. Today was the first time I had tailgated in IC since 2006. The fans were much nicer and nothing was thrown at me. Nobody even yelled trash-talk at me. It was weird.

    It probably had to do with most people not viewing ISU as a threat to beat Iowa, but it was still a nice change from 2006.

    I had a beer thrown at me about 8AM, but it was just fine after that and we were in the belly of the beast, so to speak.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    You got me. I have been posting here for 4 years all in anticipation of this day when I could admit I actually like Iowa.

    Going to Iowa City this weekend made me even more happy and proud to be a Cyclone.

    its because geoffrey cant get his head out of his *** long enough to figure out that he needs to quit stealing money from the AD department and just let them spend money on athletics so we can actually be good at football and have a better stadium
