    Iowa fans at ISU

    Are there quite a few Hawk fan students at ISU? 2 neighbor kids (engineering) just transferred to Iowa from ISU. Parents told me that they were shunned by other ISU students because they were Hawk fans and never felt part of campus. I told my son that he is free to shun all hawk fans at ISU.

    And rightfully so.

    There are more than I thought there would be. But it definitely died down from my freshman to my sophomore year.


    My teams: (as of 6/15/14)
    Cleveland Browns: 4-12 - .250
    Cleveland Indians: 34-35 - .493
    Cleveland Cavs: 33-49 - .402
    Iowa State Cyclones (FB): 3-9 - .250
    Iowa State Cyclones (BB): 28-8 - .778

    It's america, you can be a fan of whomever you want. However, if you wear hawk gear on the ISU campus, you should be shunned and heckled like crazy. They would be asking for it.

    I think it's gotten a bit better since I was there at the turn of the century. When we were in the midst of the 15 year drought there were a TON of cocky Hawks in Ames.

    Re: Iowa fans at ISU

    They're engineering majors who switched *FROM* Iowa State because their sports feelings were hurt? Sounds like a dumb decision.

    Not that I wouldn't expect to see Hawk fans on campus to take all kinds of ****, but I doubt they were shunned solely due to that. Sounds like a weak excuse to run back home to me.

    Re: Iowa fans at ISU

    I will never understand rooting for rival school.

    The thought of a Michigan fan going to school at tOSU, OU fan going to school at Texas, Auburn fan going to school at Alabama......none of these things compute. It's a real head scratcher.

    Why would you ever think you would fit in at your rival's school?

    Why does Iowa even offer engineering?

    If in eight years my daughter still wants to be a vet and the only softball scholarship she gets is from Auburn University, I'd tell her to take it-- never mind the multiple generations of my family who are Alabama grads.

    Re: Iowa fans at ISU

    I see a handful, but they are certainly a small minority, and the ones that I know really have kept their mouth shut ever since September 10, 2011.

    Re: Iowa fans at ISU

    Not to derail thread but living in Cedar Rapids I swear I see as much (or more) Cyclone gear and license plates then Hawkeye in the past 5 months. I guess its too hot for the polyester windbreakers to come out yet. Interest in Iowa football is at an all time low in the CR area.

    Re: Iowa fans at ISU

    As an ISU fan who went to Iowa for undergrad, I understood that I would not fit in to a certain part of campus life. I did not attend any sporting events, did not even watch very much Iowa football while I was there, and did not wear Cyclone gear on campus. I kept my keys on a Cyclone keychain - that was about it.

    Iowa fans who wear Hawkeye gear around campus are either extremely dumb, asking for it, or both.

    I've been at U Iowa for about 15 years. I'm not sure that I have ever seen an undergrad student wearing ISU gear. Grad students, yes.
