    Another reason to hate the Hawks

    I just got back from a trip to Jackson Hole, WY with the ISU ski and snowboard club. The cabins we stayed at were being shared by about 8 colleges, including our good friends to the east. One night, all the colleges were partying together, and naturally some friendly banter started back and forth between ISU and UI. Next thing you know, Iowa students were claiming that they had won the national title (football) in 1956. I bet them a case of beer they did not. The next morning i went online and looked it up. In 1956 there were roughly 20 polls that chose their own national champion and of these 20, Oklahoma won all but one, including the AP. Iowa continued to claim that finishing #1 in the Football World poll in 1956 was the equivalent of a legitimate national title. I insisted that either winning the majority and or the AP constituted the national title, and informed them they owed me a case of beer. Well, being typical Iowa students/fans, they refused, claiming they had won the national title. 2 nights later they set an empty case of beer on fire in front of one of our cabins. The night before we left, they threw beer bottles at one of our cabins and ran around yelling "F*ck ISU" at the top of their lungs. The next morning some of our group took bottles of ketchup and mustard (ahh, the irony) and wrote "Go State!" "ISU" and "F*ck the Hawks" on their vehicle (unfortunately it wasn't owned by the University of Iowa :( . Revenge was sweet. But seriously, who calls finishing 1st place in the Football World poll, a national title. Stupid Sqwakeyes. My hatred for them grows once again...


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Re: Another reason to hate the Hawks

    On another ISU board I saw a guy that said something along these lines...(it was shortly after the basketball season went to hell and the "online meltdown")

    His wife asked him to come to bed with her. No, it wasn't to sleep. He made that clear. Instead he told his wife he had to do some work on the computer, remote in or something. He lied, premeditated - as he instead proceeded to spend an hour or so on the Hawk message boards watching the "meltdown".

    The man passed up some quality time with his wife and lied to her about what he was doing - choosing to be on the Iowa message boards.

    For some, I think the Hawkeye obsession is gone a little too far.....

    Re: Another reason to hate the Hawks

    I could understand them claiming they won a national title in 1956, but winning the national title would require winning in the majority of the polls.

    Hell, I'll create my own poll that says ISU won a national championship that same year. Ha, beat that.

    It's also my opinion that vandalism on either side, is just as...well...bad.

    Let these idiot Iowa fans say what they want. It's just words.

    I really don't think you should be too hard on this guy without first taking a look at his wife.

    That story was on it's way to a good ending...Instead, you and your fellow snowboarders will now just be lumped together with your comrades from EIU. Enjoy!
