    Iowa State Hawkeyes

    I teach in Wyoming. I was excited to hear that we hired some more Iowa teachers to come to our district. I was even more excited to hear that one of them was from ISU and grew up in Ames. I talked to her today only to find out that she is somehow a HAWKEYE fan. It just got under my skin. One of my biggest pet peeves is someone who went to ISU and is a Hawkeye fan.

    END RANT!

    Re: Iowa State Hawkeyes

    I don't understand it either. I was at UNI for a year and wore an ISU shirt during the week of the UI-ISU game and I had UNI students come up to me and tell me "we're going to destroy you." WE? We go to UNI, you are having an identity crisis. Needless to say I thought it was a sweet moment when the Panthers beat Iowa in basketball that year.

    +1, as a UNI grad that was the worst, although most UNI students are Hawk fans most are just football fans which make them even worse, because they when they go to UNI bball games they are all about UNI.

    Re: Iowa State Hawkeyes

    The thing is, unless they've attended the U of I, or lived in Iowa City their whole lives, they just jumped on a bandwagon, cheering for Iowa only because Iowa is more succesful, and now they would rather cheer for a "winner" than a team that represents something they're part of. It's disgusting.

    I'm fine w/Iowa having non-alum fans, as long as they aren't ISU alums.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Sounds like NW Iowa Husker fans. Then again I'm sure their 2nd choice would have been the Hocks so I guess it's better this way.

    I know some people from high school that went to UNI. You know what they told me? There are no Panther fans - either you're an ISU fan or an Iowa fan and you cheer for the Panthers on the side because you go there...


    Oh we will fight, fight, fight for Iowa State,
    and may her colors ever fly!!!

    Tell me about it, but only I live in SW Iowa where most people are Husker fans. I've also seen a lot of "new" Hawk fans the last 5 or 6 years.

    Re: Iowa State Hawkeyes

    As the saying goes, what do ISU fans and Hawkeye fans have in common? Neither went to the University of Iowa!

    Re: Iowa State Hawkeyes

    And what is the consensus on ISU fans that attend Iowa?

    Well, that's one way of not thinking about it.

    Re: Iowa State Hawkeyes

    I actually don't really have a problem with this though. I'm not an ISU alum but I've been a lifelong fan, and had been going to games for nearly 15years before I decided on where I wanted to go to school.

    If they're like my brother, they convert to a Hawkeye. There's nothing wrong with cheering for your school, but it's a punch to the gut everytime I talk to the guy who cried when ISU lost to MSU in the Elite 8 and he talks about how ISU sucks at everything.
