    Was just at Hawkeyenation.com...

    ...Looking for there take on this weeks game and i actually couldn't find one thread about it (at least not on the front page). There was just a bunch of threads about how we suck, and how we're stupid, or hicks, or inbred, etc. I thought that since Iowa has been more successfull than us that maybe that would attract some fans that actually like to talk about FOOTBALL. I did find one thing that i enjoyed (not as much as our version, and that was the ISU look-a-likes thread.

    Heres some links:
    Scout.com: Why I hate ISU... a history lesson i actually didnt know about this and am very ashamed that something like this happened here so recently.

    Scout.com: Clones apeared poised for another run a the BCS.

    Scout.com: ISU stadium PA announcer is....

    Scout.com: Clones apeared poised for another run a the BCS.

    and the look-a-like thread.. (i do like this one)
    Scout.com: ISU Look-O-Likes


    Edit: there might be something to that stupid thing tho, just by the amount of spelling/grammer mistakes i made. But i still don't want to here about it.

    Can't really fault them on this one - it's not as if we haven't had our own pretty demeaning look alike thread going for several weeks...

    I also didn't know about the 1981 game. Very embarrassing that our fans would ever behave like that, and I can't blame the guy for hating ISU to this day for that experience.

    They went as far as to criticise the PA announcer. Lets just pick on the field attendents, ushers, and concession stand volunteers.

    We're a bunch of inbred sheep herders I guess...

    Why I hate ISU... a history lesson (8 votes)

    The disdain most Iowa fans have for ISU is not simply "cross-state rivalry" stuff. There's more behind it...much of which really defines the Clones. And I was surprised that KFz himself refer to it this week. I thought nobody else remembered 1981...but I'm glad he did.

    I was a drummer in the HMB in 1981, the first year Iowa played in Ames following the resumption of the series. After 4 years played in Iowa City (for obvious reasons...attendance and gate $) the series played it's first game in Ames. It was a chance for ISU to showcase it's football program and it's University. The way their fans responded was pathetic.

    People driving to the game were greeting by "F*** Iowa" signs attached to numerous street and road signs along the road. For those of you under 30, that was still considered profanity in 1981

    Once in the stadium Iowa fans, players, band, cheerleaders and coaches were subjected to a constant shower of raw, profane, caveman chants yells and attacks.

    The band and cheerleaders were pelted with crap not only as we performed but simply sitting by the field. I remember walking into the stadium early, before it was even 1/4 full and getting harrassed by the locals. One flag girl took a shot to the back (I think it was an orange) that had her in tears and scared to death. (FYI, on every other roadtrip I took in 4 years, the host band welcomed us as proud ambassadors of their school)

    There were widely reported and confirmed episodes of fans behind the Iowa bench shouting "That's what you get for playing a ****** quarterback"...aimed at Pete Gales. The taunts and debris continued afterwards.

    I recall our band bus being pounded on, yelled at and having stuff hit the windows as we left. The driver was visibly shaken.

    On that day "Clones" were defined for me. Inbred sheep-breeders with no class. And that will never change. Iowa will always be the Hawkeye state...regardless of any game score. That I know. Because Iowa State SUCKS!!!

    I was at that game, and it was probably worse than he depicted.

    Re: Was just at Hawkeyenation.com...

    I like the PA, and the first down thing. Hell, if we could just get our fans to yell random words in unison i'd be happy. We do not have a very good crowd. Don't think i mean we don't have good fans tho.
