    What would get you to hope for an Iowa win?

    In the spirit of the "Hawkeye's vs. Nebraska" thread--where nearly everyone would prefer Nebraska to beat Iowa--I was curious about whom Iowa could play that would make you prefer that Iowa wins. Or if nobody, if there's a special circumstance that would make you go for Iowa (like a certain bowl game or something).

    For me, it's Michigan State. Oh wait--that's basketball. Stupid double foul & Shirley fouling out because of it . . . [going off to grumble/cry/whimper in the corner]

    If it would get us into the national title game instead of Ohio State making it there.

    If Iowa played Iran, I would want Iowa to win. Otherwise I don't see it happening.

    Agreed. An Iowa win that would put us in the National Championship game.

    I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.

    Re: What would get you to hope for an Iowa win?

    I rooted for the Hawks football team a few years ago at Penn State right after Ferentz's dad passed away. I usually don't root against their football program much, more so in basketball.

    Also I would root against them if they played the 1980 Russian Hockey team.

    Oh c'mon--it's clean fun. It's not (directly) an Iowa bashing thread. Gives people a chance to bash someone else (I hate them so much I want Iowa to beat them).

    Maybe I should start a "what would make you want ISU to lose" thread instead . . .

    No--that would be sacriligious.

    Re: What would get you to hope for an Iowa win?

    I am pretty sure if EIU played the al-Qaida national team, that would be the only time I would root for the towel heads....sad to say.

    The only thing that would attempt to sway that would be NC implications as said above, but it would take a lot of effort and concentration.

    I would cheer for Iowa if they were playing Notre Dame. Also I would cheer for Iowa after ISU beats them because then ISU beat a good team not some 6-6 team.

    I agree! There seems to be at least one post/day hating on the Hawks.

    Winning unfairly through point shaving, steriods, illegal participation, and organized crime links. Results in losing all scholarships for 10 years and diminishing them to Division II status.

    Well (picture of light bulb slowly illuminating over my head) . . . I want the Iowa football team to play the Michigan State basketball team. Go Hawks! Or maybe just the refs . . .
