    Gahhh, kill me now KU

    New article in the Atlantic tries to argue that Kansas is America's team. I sincerely hope the writer's tongue is planted firmly in his cheek, 'cause KU 'effin SUCKS.

    Remember when KU fans used to think ISU had thugs just because Tinsley, etc had a few tats? Now they field the tatted thug twins, have Morningstar talking trash to a team they are beating by 20 and getting T'd up, and almost get into a fight before the game starts by messing with the Richmond huddle.

    Can't wait to hear your fans start their gloating, unsportsmanlike chant in another minute or two. And LOL at your fans booing every call that went against you all weekend in Tulsa.

    You stay classy, KU. America's team my ***.

    I'd probably go with Duke over Kansas. More people hate Duke, I think. If that's the standard that you want to use.

    It's amazing how teams that have a lot of jerk fans and the vast majority of fans have no connection to the school are hated, huh?

    Butler=America's team. Gritty, hardworking, no excuses, roll up the sleeves, never say die, true-blooded Americans. Butler represents America. Well, maybe not now, with everyone being a SOFT trash-talking, all bark & no bite, pussywillows. One can look at the fools that banned dodgeball in school for this.

    America's team would probably be the Conference USA champion... right?? So this year, it's Memphis.

    Now this kind of argument gets old to me. IMO, a "Tavernhok" is somebody who fits the following description: 1. Did not attend the U of I, and 2. Can not name more than 10 players on the football team.

    Not attending the university that you root for is not a big deal. You do realize that the majority of the better athletic departments have fan bases with LARGE numbers of those non-alum fans, right?

    Here's the thing with the 'tavernhawk'.

    Most ISU fans have discovered that when one of Iowa's fans is a ******bag, they are more than likely to not be alums of the school. Not all of the non-alums fit that description, but a sizable proportion do. By contrast, the alums of iowa are usually much more likely to be classy fans.

    Nothing wrong with the classy non-alum fans, and id welcome non-alums of ISU as fans, as long as they dont do\say stupid **** to make us look bad like a lot of Tavernhawks do for iowa.
