    Why I love Iowa fans

    Because they are so predictable.
    We have team day at the office on Fridays. Not a single stitch of Hawkeye apparel to be seen. The few I've talked to claim they didn't know there was a game tonight and aren't interested in watching.

    I'd be embarrassed to wear that crap too.

    Ignorance is bliss. With this group, that should be a given....

    Common theme at my work too. Hawk fans hiding under the disguise of the unaware, love it.

    I can't wait until their football team continues their decline and we get to deal with less and less of them.

    Re: Why I love Iowa fans

    Thing is, though, neither basketball team has been great the past few years. Mike Hlas, from the Gazette, wrote an article last year detailing how that was the least hype he'd ever seen for the Iowa State-Iowa basketball game, as both programs were so down. Interesting perspective, and I actually kind of agree with him. The hype won't come back fully until at least one team is a sure tournament team.

    Of course, UNI's game isn't until tomorrow.

    Win in IC next fall and watch what happens. I know Hawk "fans" that stop paying attention as soon as they lose more than 1 game in a football season. The worst part for them is that ISU is looking better so they can't even bring us down with their ship ha

    Re: Why I love Iowa fans

    Honestly, I think the Iowa fans in my office really aren't aware of the game. They've basically given up completely on basketball to the point that they don't follow it at all.

    I remember that article. I like Hlas, he is a pretty good journalist IMO.

    Thing is, me and the other 8k diehards that have been showing up at Hilton year after year for the past 6 years realize the season isn't over till we lose in the Big 12 Tournament. Point being, CYCLONE FANS RULE!!!!!!!!!

    Hawk fans here already cashed in the season. They're expecting to get routed tonight.

    Unsurprisingly, the one I talked to is a UNI grad.
