    Hawk fans at it already

    My cousin, a true tavern Hawk with a big mouth (never went to college, BTW), posted this on Facebook this morning:

    "Order restored! Lots of sad clowns up at Clown U today! Go Hawks!"

    Even funnier, his buddy (guy I know who also never left small town Iowa or went to college), commented:

    "Yep, nice win. My team won too. ROLL TIDE!"

    He's an Alabama fan.

    Not sure whether to laugh or feel sorry for them.

    You want to laugh or feel sorry for these guys because they didn't go to college or because they like small-town Iowa? If not, I guess I don't understand the relevancy in the discussion.

    Meh. We've done it to them the last two years. Can't take the heat, then quit being a sports fan.

    Potential nominee for dumbest thread of the year award. If all we have to hang our hat on is "our fans actually went here", which isn't true, we sound like giant douchebags.

    Its not that. Its that most of the DBags in their fanbase didnt go to Iowa. The ones that did are on average a lot classier.

    Iowa fans will quiet down when they start losing games again, which shouldnt take too long.

    I didn't even go out in Ames last night because I didn't want to put up with the intelligence of hawk fans. Hawk fans just ruin everything they touch.

    You know why most of the "tavern" fans chose Iowa. B/c we have sucked compared to them for 30 years. So how exactly is pointing this out a slight to Iowa? That I don't get.

    According to most around here, they'd prefer you take your cheering (and money) to the Iowa Hawkeye program.

    But you probably didn't also start cheering for a team because they were the successful team in the state. People started cheering for the hawks because they gave people in the state something to cheer about.

    no problem with people choosing to root for the Hawkeyes. It's the ******* ignorant Hawk fans (who can't find IC on a map) who insult ISU in front of ISU ALUMS...losers...

    how asinine is that?

    Let me know how much money and support you have given the program and we can talk.

    Re: Hawk fans at it already

    My beef is more with my cousin. I don't care if you talk smack. Just don't make fun of the school I went to if you yourself never stepped foot on a college campus. Keep it to the game. It's when you attack my school that i get mad.
