    Why do Cyclone fans

    get excited over the Iowa match when they basically kick are *** every single time? How many times have we actually beat them in the last 20 years. I know we bleed ISU but this contest is not even close. Just Curious. I hope we win.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    The meet usually is close and it is very intense.

    Why did we get excited to play them in FB when they kicked our *** 15yrs in a row?

    It's called a rivalry.

    Re: Why do Cyclone fans

    Trust me when I tell you I quit getting excited for the football game after they beat us about 8 times in a row. Now i get excited again since we are beating them every other year. I am just curious. It seams like ISU wrestling fans are putting them through some misery.

    Re: Why do Cyclone fans

    For me, part of it is the fact they have beat us so many times... I hate being dominated by a team for so long.

    Re: Why do Cyclone fans

    because it doesnt mess up your head to get beat by a better team (wrestling). it does mess up your head to constantly give games away to lesser teams (bball and fball).

    Re: Why do Cyclone fans

    Because we're a very highly rated team facing another very highly rated team, which makes it exciting in itself. Add that onto the fact that it's against a rival and that makes it not only a good match up but a passionate one.

    The results historically don't dictate those for the future. If they did we wouldn't have many sports because there would be no hope of improvement because no one would go to any sport based on how historically we will lose everything we ever compete at.

    Seriously, We're the number 2 team in the nation and you're wondering why people get excited about playing the number 1 team in the nation because you assume we're going to lose? How is that even a question?

    Twice: back-to-back wins in 04 and 05.

    So, just because Iowa has won basically since Gable took over the program, we should roll over and quit the series or not get excited about it? Hell no. The two schools are the TOP wrestling programs in the country. It is obvious you're not a wrestling fan. It's a completely different sport than football or basketball and requires a completely different way of thinking from its fanbase.

    Because it's always a top five match-up that the entire wrestling community in the nation tries to emulate.

    Re: Why do Cyclone fans

    Think if Iowa and Iowa State were number 1 and 2 in football or basketball and they were going to play eachother this weekend. There would be murders to get tickets to that game. There is just a lot less interest in wrestling however, for wrestling fans this is HUGE. Last year we needed 1 of the 3 one point matches to go our way and we would have won. With Lineups very similar to last year it will be very close and one of the most intense meets in a long time.

    Because Knownothing can sit anonymously behind a key board and make statements that would probably get his/her/it butt kicked on the street. Make your stupid posts with the football and basketball teams, but please stay away from wrestling forums. True wrestlers take their sport seriously which makes the ISU/Iowa matchup one of the premier duals every year. The talent level is unbelievable for both squads and anyone who knows anything about wrestling wouldn't post something sooooo ignorant.
