    Great Showing by ISU fans

    I went to the Farm Progress Show and I have to say there was a lot of ISU gear being wore, not much Iowa gear, and 1 SDSU shirt. On top of the gear Dekalb was giving out ISU and Iowa hats, ISU hats being wore probaly out numbered Iowa hats 5 to 1. I dont think I have every saw that much more ISU gear than Iowa gear anywhere outside of Ames.

    Yeah... I'm trying to get my field work done so I can go to the game... You know that all ISU fans are farmers right?

    just how it sounds. A convention where companies show off their newest products. Tractors, plant technology, other stuff.

    that makes sense as to why there were many isu fans since most of them probably graduated from a great agriculture school

    Farmers are the hardest working SOB's out there, plus they need to be knowledgeable in many different areas. These two points alone eliminates 95% of Iowa fans.

    True but most of the successful farmers are ISU fans.
