    Becoming a fan?

    What event/person/thing/ caused you to become an Iowa State fan? I didn't find anything like this for awhile, so sorry if it has been posted recently.

    The letter in October 1996 that said I had officially been accepted to attend Iowa State...

    Re: Becoming a fan?

    Late 90's when I was in high school and came up for a ISU vs. Kansas game. ISU beat a heavily ranked Kansas team. Great game.
    Went to Wallabys after the game, and Tim Floyd came in about an hour later. People were high fiving him, shaking his hand, getting pictures, really nice guy. He bought a round of shots, they were blue and called Kansas killers, for the whole bar. These waitresses were carrying around round trays just full of blue shots for everyone. Never got carded and was the best under age shot I ever had.

    Re: Becoming a fan?

    Wore an Iowa State Basketball sweatshirt to school (2nd grade in 1977). It wasn't a statement, I just thought it looked cool. Honestly, I followed Iowa as much as ISU then. But the amount of **** I caught from my buddies at school caused me to dig in my heels and become the biggest (literally) 'Clone I could.

    Re: Becoming a fan?

    Grew up big iowa fan in Dubuque.

    Went to ISU for school. Cheered for ISU and iowa for the first few weeks. Got my first taste of the ISU/iowa game about week 3 of school.

    Never looked back.

    (actually, I really liked Dr. Tom, so I always had a soft spot in my heart for iowa bball. That got hardened over when they f'd him over and brought in the golden child)

    Born into it. Both of my parents are ISU grads. I have had season football tickets all my life. I still get chills before every game.

    Re: Becoming a fan?

    Pretty sure this thread already exists... but I was always a Cyclone fan, but became a "big" Cyclone fan during the Colorado game when the tornado came in 2005.

    Re: Becoming a fan?

    The fact that they decided they'd pay half of my tuition each year kinda convinced me to like them.
