    Make Them Sing The Fight Song

    Hey Guys,
    I have been hearing a lot of good Hawk stories that occurred this weekend. I had two encounters with Hawks fans at the game one bad, one good. The best way I have found to decipher a real Hawk fan, and a tavern Hawk is to ask them to sing the fight song. Pretty simple, a true fan or alum will belt it out no problem. However, a tavern Hawk or poser will look at you with that ignorant "Cooter Ray" face. When they realize that they have been called out most will either shut up or leave. Sidenote - I have yet to have an obnoxious fan know the words.

    I know it is a bit passive-aggressive but it is fun as **** to do!

    Have a great week!

    Re: Make Them Sing The Fight Song

    haha I do that all the time as well. I also like when at blue moon I think its called, piano bar in wdm, they play the isu fight song and half the crowd sings it. Then they play the iowa fight song and not one person knows the words hahaha.

    My other favorite is asking hawk fans what the name of a player is, they usually know the qb and rb and a defensive player but ask who the kicker or backup qb is and 99% of the time they have no clue.
