    A very stupid question.....

    So I'm a daily reader of CyFan, however, there is one thing that many people say that I don't understand.

    Everyone refers to University of Iowa as EUI. Even someone's signature says like Okoboji is the other EUI or something along those lines. Just wondering if anyone could clarify for me. Thanks alot.

    EIU- to some means Eastern Iowa University.


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    Re: A very stupid question.....

    That's what I figured, but is it supposed to be like a slam or something??? I seriously bet that I am simply overthinking it, but I guess I just always refer to it as UI

    Eh. I'm an Iowan born and raised, but I never heard "EIU" until I came to CF. I've always thought it is a pretty uninspiring attempt at an insult, but lots of people here seem to really get their rocks off by using it, so whatever. If there's one thing neither Iowa State nor Iowa is good at, it's coming up with truly hurtful or witty insults for the other side. That may be a good thing or a bad thing, but it's true either way. When the primary derogatory names are "Squawkeyes" and "Cyclowns", there is much work to be done. I suppose it speaks on how Iowans aren't "haters".

    I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.

    Re: A very stupid question.....

    A recent one for ISU by Iowa fans is ISCC (Iowa State Community College).

    I agree with orny - neither side really has a great insult. Ah well.

    I always see Ames CC, but do we really need to put others down to lift ourselves up?!? HELL YES, well... during the summer we do. Otherwise well be forced to talk about Nascar or Barroid Bonds. Once practice starts we can worry about ourselves.

    Re: A very stupid question.....

    I always preferred FWIU (Far Western University of Illinois). I just think it's at least mildly clever.

    At least seven year-olds can do it coherently; half the ISU-UI "trash"-talking is between people who can barely stand under their own power, let alone drunkenly slur out witty repartee.

    As far as I'm concerned, ISU is THE University of Iowa. I don't recognize any diploma mill in Iowa Sh*tty.. :Wink:
