    ISU fans at the Nebraska game

    I wanted to see if anyone had any great stories about their experience in Lincoln at the game. I keep hearing how classy thier fans were which is nice to hear. I can tell you that I had season tickets right next to the visitor section at The Jack and I thought they were brutal and could tell you multiple stories. Interesting to hear they are not that way in Lincoln.


    Anyway, any experiences at the game that you would like to share?

    They are generally quite nice when rolling you by 5-6 TDs. Surprised to hear that they were cordial when showing such a level of ineptness.

    Re: ISU fans at the Nebraska game

    They were almost too nice on Saturday. Random fans coming up and congratulating us on the win. They were the same the past two times I have been there as well. Nice to see they are consistent win or lose.

    Re: ISU fans at the Nebraska game

    I do want to comment about the radio broadcast through Husker.com. In general the announcing crew would back up the officiating by stating that a play was correctly called even when the fans were going nuts. And even though they thought Nebraska was a 3 TD better team they accepted getting beat. It was a fairly objective broadcast.

    Re: ISU fans at the Nebraska game

    I had a good experience in Lincoln, and have in previous visits as well. I've found that their real fans, the ones who show up every Saturday and have for years, are very knowledgeable about football, up to date on stats, and can hold a great conversation and friendly debate. Their bandwagon fans are the worst when it comes to trash talking and making ignorant statements. Unfortunately, those are the ones most people remember.

    Got a lot of "your team played great", "good job to the cyclones", etc. when we were leaving our seats this weekend. Even went to the bars in Lincoln on Saturday night while wearing an ISU shirt, and got some congrats and level headed talks with NU fans.

    Re: ISU fans at the Nebraska game

    I didn't have a single bad experience on Saturday. True story...a guy actually came up to my dad and me and gave us a piece of pizza...he then said "welcome to Lincoln."

    I was blown away.

    Re: ISU fans at the Nebraska game

    On Friday night at the bars, they were talking a whole lot of crap to me since I was wearing my ISU hat but I think it was all in good fun. At the game, it wasn't too bad in their student section. A lot better than I thought it was going to be. Saturday night at the bars, no one said anything to me when I was wearing my ISU gear and I high fived every ISU fan I saw. Overall, I had a great time.

    Re: ISU fans at the Nebraska game

    I would concur. Nebraska was very gracious. Their were a couple negative remarks here and there but I came away with a new found respect for their fans. Hawk fan however did not dissapoint, when ISU dominated the conversation on facebook he was upset and jealous. Said that no way Iowa State should have gotten the cover of the Sunday sports page because of an ugly win. Hawkeyes deserved it.

    Re: ISU fans at the Nebraska game

    I went to our UNM homecoming Sunday night against UNLV and I wore my ISU hat- I had no less than 5 people come up to me and congratulate me on a great win- like I had anything to do with it. Of course one was a Buffs fan- which is funny because we will get our chance to crush them later!

    Was that the dude in black and gold that we've seen on TV?


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Re: ISU fans at the Nebraska game

    After the game while at the bar, I had a guy come up to me and tell me that Iowa State sucks and then actually put his empty glass into my sweatshirt pocket. It all happened so quick that I didn't even realize what happened until my friend went running after the kid to point him out to the bouncers. Then later I had a girl of all people come up and push me into the street told me that she hoped I got hit by a car and then told me to go back to Iowa. Again I wasn't expecting it and thought it was more funny than anything else. Always going to have those few idiots in the fan base. My friends that were with me were very quick to call the idiots out and tell them to stop.

    Re: ISU fans at the Nebraska game

    With the exception of the guy at the first place we tried to park trying to charge us $40 because we were ISU fans it was a incredible experience. The fans that sat around us at the game were awesome and like everyone else has said many many fans after the game told us great job and good luck the rest of the season. By far the most positive experience I have had at a road game. Great time!!!
