    Who do you love to hate more: hawks or huskers?

    The thread about our season tic sales now being over 35k had some interesting posts about the fact that we have home games with ui and nu in alternate years, thereby getting a lot of ticket sales interest from one of those fan bases every year. But which group gripes you the most, hawks or huskers? I'd say it's a tough call, but the hawks bug me more. The huskers, after all, are Big XII family, sort of. What say you?

    Re: Who do you love to hate more: hawks or huskers?

    I believe this topic has come up before in recent months... but what the heck, never a bad time to share our hatred... for me personally, I hate Nebraska on top of all other teams in the NCAA. Primarily because I lived in NE for four yrs after grad school and put up with their arrogant, self-righteous, self-congratulatory, myopic fan base. I realize there isn't a lot of difference between the average husker and hawk fan (most never went to UN-L or UI) except the colors and NU fans having more to brag about, but at least Iowa has us, the ISU fanbase, to keep them in check, whereas the fans in nebraska have no in-state rival, and that just drove me nuts. Watching Leno the other night and seeing Larry the Cable Guy on with his camo-husker hat and sleeveless shirt just gave me an example poster-boy for a nebraska fan. That guy makes Tom Arnold look like a Harvard grad.


    I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.

    Hands down...Hawks. Albeit arrogant, at least the Nebraska fans are rational and intelligent.

    Hawks, don't even have to think about it. Arrogance runs thick in that cesspool of fans, or at least the majority of them.

    UofI. I grew up in CR.

    I like the Huskers (like all other Big12 Teams), expect for 1/2 of their fan base.

    Re: Who do you love to hate more: hawks or huskers?

    Growing up in western Iowa, where you get mostly Omaha TV and radio, I definitely hated the Huskers more. Now that I live in central Iowa, can't stand the Hawks. I think it depends on where you live.

    I hate the Squawks, but would rather beat the Bugeaters (because they are in conference). Does that make sense??

    Re: Who do you love to hate more: hawks or huskers?

    I get more immediate enjoyment by beating the Hawks since I grew up closer to Iowa City. I have been subjected to Hawk propaganda too much and the thought of shutting up the annoying Hawk fans in my town for a while is just too nice. Now if I lived in western Iowa, I might sing a different tune. I get more long-term enjoyment by beating the Huskers because it eventually helps our conference standing and hopefully leads to a good bowl game. How about we beat both every year from now on?

    Re: Who do you love to hate more: hawks or huskers?

    I like beating the Huskers much more than I like beating the Hawks, but from a pure hatred standpoint, I can't stand the Hawkeyes (mostly because I live in CR and can't even wear a Cyclone T-Shirt without some smart mouthed comment about it). One of my best friends from work is from Lincoln and was at school during their back-to-back 94-95 championships and he is a very rational, albeit intense, Husker fan. I am actually going with him to the ISU game in Lincoln this year, but I wouldn't go to an ISU-Iowa game with any Hawkeyes. Last time I was at Kinnick I got a beer dumped on me purely for being a Clone with absolutely no antagonizing on my part, was just asked if I was a Hawkeye to which I replied, nope (didn't even mention I was a Clone).

    That's like asking "Which is worse gonorrhea or syphilis?".
