    Born vs. Converted Cyclone Fan

    Since everyone on here has a different background, I was wondering how many actually were born a cyclone fan and how many converted to one later in life.

    I'll start, I converted.

    I grew up in Lincoln as obviously a huge Nebraska fan. I continued my love for Nebraska even after I moved to Iowa in highschool. It wasn't until my sophomore year at ISU that I made my full conversion.

    Grew up in the heart of "Hawkdom", southeast Iowa. However, my parents both graduated from ISU so I was an ISU fan from birth. Always hated Iowa.

    Re: Born vs. Converted Cyclone Fan

    I spent the first 9 years of my life in western SD essentially unaware that college sports existed! When I moved to Iowa I got sucked into being a Hawk fan. Once I started writing checks to ISU my allegiance changed!


    Nothing to see here mods. Keep moving.

    Re: Born vs. Converted Cyclone Fan

    Haven't we had this thread before?

    Anyway, I grew up a Hawk fan. Went to school, converted to being a fan of both. That changed during 2002 football season. Iowa fans were such complete jerks to me about our collapse that season that I could never again cheer for Iowa. I've hated them ever since.

    Born ISU fan, but only attended about 4 sporting events before I started college. I would say that college increased my Cyclone blood too.

    Re: Born vs. Converted Cyclone Fan

    I never really payed much attention to college sports (grew up in the quad cities). My sister was on the Hawkeye Marching Band starting my junior year of high school. I saw 'em in the Outback bowl and have attended more games than I'd ever like to admit in that dump to the east. Wasn't ever really that big into them though. Have been a die-hard Cyclone ever since I put in my application

    Re: Born vs. Converted Cyclone Fan

    I became a Cyclone Fan when they accepted me and offered me a scholarship. I shed my Notre Dame Blue and Gold, and Illinois Orange and Blue and donned the Cardinal and Gold.

    Its great to be a cyclone fan!

    Re: Born vs. Converted Cyclone Fan

    Born in Long Island, NY, where they don't give a rip about college sports, so I had no parental influence as to which college I chose to cheer for (Dad actually made fun of me for watching college sports ). Moved to Davenport when I was 4. Fell in love with Iowa almost immediately, although I would cheer for ISU when they weren't playing Iowa (especially NCAA Tourney time). Found out Iowa didn't offer my area of interests, but ISU did. Became an ISU fan almost overnight. Gradually learned to hate my once beloved Hawks...
