    If there were no ISU - Iowa game....

    could you find it in your heart to root for the Hawks as well as the Clones since our paths wouldn't cross?

    just curious.

    I say no too, but only because in our lifetime we have played them. If someone grew up never knowing the rivalry, I wonder if more fans would be "neutral"?

    Uh, no - we would still compete with each other for the best recruits in the area, so their success would hurt us...

    If the Hawks were playing against Communism or the Third Reich I would root for them.

    That is all.

    I think so. But saying that gives me a certain "ick" feeling - so perhaps that's an indicator of the truth.

    I grew up a hawk fan. I think my anti-iowa sentiment is a direct result of our losing streak, and interaction with hawks as a result of these games. The animosity wouldn't be there if not for that.

    Then again, we never play Duke - and I can't stand them either.

    HAAAAhahaha...I agree. Potentially I would root for them against Nebraska. And that is about it.

    I would too, but only if the communism is pre-glasnost.

    NEVER!!!!!!!!!!

    I grew up in eastern Iowa and all I heard was hawk this and hawk that, like they are some sort of perennial power. Well hawk fans, you never have been a perennial power and never will be.

    No. Im pretty sure its the way most of their fans act that makes me not like them the most. If we didnt play them, all we'd have is our overall records, and with us in the big 12, and them in the big 10, theyd almost always end up looking better, and we'd never hear the end of it.

    I don't think so... but then again I don't have a second team I root for in college football or any other college sport. Only one team I watch.
