    Voices from the stands: Iowa Edition

    Anybody have any good stories or hear anything funny from the stadium today?!?
    It really looked like there was more cardinal than usual in Kinnick today, good job Cyclone fans!

    Ooh goody. This is usually a good thread! Bring it on, those of you who braved the Mecca of college football to watch the game.

    My friend had a peanut thrown at his head. He picked it up, shelled it, and ate it.

    I agree with this but when we have a team that's looks capable of winning in Kinnick it's easier for more to decide to go.

    On TV it really looked that way. To me it was a metaphor for the transition of the Iowa/Iowa State fans in the state

    John Walters was ahead of the crappy Big Ten Network. Couldn't tell from the crowd noise on radio what happened until announcers said. Iowa crowd seemed quiet from the radio anyway.

    I was impressed with Iowa fans today - a lot more courteous than I expected.

    Re: Voices from the stands: Iowa Edition

    I was in the press box covering the game for the DI. There was definitely more of a mix between Iowa and ISU fans today, and the place got decently loud for ISU's big plays.

    Overall, it was a terrible game to watch outside of the fourth quarter. Just not a whole lot happened. The fourth was nuts though, in that it was such a rollercoaster. I've never seen a quarter so up and down on the emotional scale, when no points were scored by either team.

    Re: Voices from the stands: Iowa Edition

    From section 135 behind our band, a group of "house divided" fans were discussing the merits of following each team. A hawk nearby chirped in that there would have to be something wrong with a person to cheer for the Cyclones, and that he'd "rather be dead than be a Clown fan." From about 5 rows up, an old-timer ISU fan turns around and says, "One fewer Iowa fan! That's progress!" He got a pretty good laugh out of both sides...

    They don't **** talk when they know Iowa State is the better team.

    Re: Voices from the stands: Iowa Edition

    I had an old man grab my shirt and try and partially choke me for having my hands in the air. He was asked nicely to restrain himself and moved a few seats over for a better view. He did no like cyclones cheering on defense in his section.

    Re: Voices from the stands: Iowa Edition

    I was in the ISU section. Had some typical Iowa stereotypes come true.

    1. A girl and guy behind us were both cheering for the hawks. One went to UNI and one was a student at ISU (very disappointed).

    2. 3 Hawk fans next to me left halfway through the third.

    As far as conversations, on the hawkeye express train on the way back some ***** said there is no such thing as a real ISU fan, that it's still a hawkeye state, and that Josh Lenz should of went to Iowa. I just kept my mouth shut because I didn't want to get into. I let the results speak for themselves.


    Hilton Coliseum was specifically built to hold in sound with a solid concrete structure, steel doors, and a crowd that sits just a few feet from the court. With a fan base that frequently ranks among the nations largest crowds, players from opposing teams, as well as Iowa State, have said that the floor has shaken due to the loudness of the crowd

    There was a hok fan behind me who was dismayed at the fact that we kept punting it out of bounds and the refs were not calling it.
