    Mack Brown compares us to Nebraska Fans?

    Mack Brown on Iowa State fans: "The fans at Iowa State are very much like the fans at Nebraska. They like their team." #Cyclones

    Oh, it's on now...that's hitting below the belt. Got a kick outta David Ubben's response: #trollin.

    I took that last part to have an unstated "even though they're not as successful as Texas." Prolly not the way he meant it, but after comparing us to Nebraska, I'm not cutting him any slack.

    *edit* OK, more to it (these are both Chris Williams tweets, just didn't add in the identifier sections on these for brevity):

    More from Brown: "They're really positive about the opposing team, but they'll be fired up and should be a fun atmosphere."

    And more: "You've got to give Iowa State credit and their fans are proud, and it's a great place. Their fans are so positive and upbeat."

    Now that I read that, I'll take it...I read it as "they're really passionate about their team, but they're not West Virginny 'throw a rock thru your window' arseholes." If that's Nebraska to him, I'll take it.

    At least we're not bandwagon fans. We probably have more commitment as a fan base, to stick through tougher times than a lot of teams out there.

    There's a difference between liking and just attending. Just look at Oklahoma State - stadium is half empty almost always.


    WE ARE IOWA STATE

    Mack and the rest of Texas think everything north of OKC is Nebraska.

    Mack Brown must think Hilton Colosseum is empty every basketball season and we are all RABID Drake basketball fans.

    That's what a Nebraska fan is. Exactly that pathetic.
