    How did you become a Cyclone fan?

    This doesn't have to be basketball, but that's what brought it up.

    When I was young my uncle wore ISU clothes and the rest of NW Iowa seemed to like the hawkeyes and that bothered me.

    Third generation Iowa Stater. Everyone in my family goes to Iowa State.


    I don't think I'm alone when I say I'd like to see more and more planets fall under the ruthless domination of our solar system.

    Hayden Fry was the football coach when I was old enough to pick sides. Enough said.

    Re: How did you become a Cyclone fan?

    My parents both went to ISU and everyone else in our extended family was Iowa fans and made fun of us. That's where the hatred grew. I really didn't have any passion about it as a little kid, until my parents took me to a bball game and Johnny's entrance lit the fire.

    All my family is ISU fans, I've never known better.


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    I fell for basketball about three years before 1989, but the same story.

    Like cardinal&gold, I grew up near Ames (and with it, a healthy hatred for the hawks ).

    Re: How did you become a Cyclone fan?

    Born in Iowa and moved to Florida very young, followed both Iowa and Iowa State. First got to see Iowa State play against the Gators in the NCAA Tournament, watching the game in class...

    Moved to Iowa my senior year of HS, still didn't root one way or the other and decided to go to college back down in Florida then transfered to ISU in the fall of '99. Been a Cyclone ever since...

    Went to the ISU Nebraska game (all big eight kicker - Gedgen sp. missed the game winner) when a senior in h.s. Attended I State University the next year. Earl Bruce started winning. Best time ever to be a football fan @ ISU.

    Re: How did you become a Cyclone fan?

    Dexter Green's Cyclones were step one, Johnny's big win over Missouri sealed the deal, my first semester on campus.




    Paul Rhoads' players never quit.
    (They just disappear offseason)

    Re: How did you become a Cyclone fan?

    I was raised as a Nebraska fan by my parents. Then I went to ISU and was immediately converted at the first football game of the season.
