The Eight Types of Iowa Hawkeye Fans | Colby and Stacy's Weblog
I only know the Bandwagon, Tavern, Panther, and Farmer varieties.
I know some mistaken Steeler's fans
I'm a pretty big fan of the "where's waldo" variety. It's just such a douchy move that I like it.
I know an "Illini Reject" Cyclone. She didn't get accepted at UIUC so she's in Chem E at ISU now. I was talking to her father last weekend, he was raving about the atmosphere at Jack Trice. One more convert in the suburbs, I love it.
That's my website. I'm glad you guys liked the post.
I compiled a bunch of Iowa jokes on it back in 2010 on that site too - most of which are still relevant.
Thats awesome. I have a friend who is a "Panther Hok" by that exact definition so this will be blasted over to him since this last week he has been in UNI mode since the Panther win... that its Cy-Hawk week he's changing his wardrobe. I bet actual UNI fans are going to be confused on the Cedar Falls campus this week with all the black and gold walking around.
I had a Panther Hok sit behind me during the UNI game wearing a purple UNI shirt. After the first TD for UNI he asked all of us sitting around him if we ever been to Kinnick. I asked why... "Well my gf is a UNI student, and I go to Kirkwood, but a big Hawk fan."
Don't forget the I'm hawk doosh and there's nuthin you can do about it fan. You've seen this turd a million times...he's the tool wearing the hawk shirt at JTS during the KSU-ISU game.
The Iowa grad moving out of State is so true. I know 5 people who graduated last year from Iowa...all moved out of state. The ANF thing is one of the stupidest things Iowa does. I love how their fans call us Moo U and and I S Moo yet when the ANF stuff comes up they are all "yeah we support farmers and Iowa's ag industry". Props to colbycheese for a such a true blog about hok fans and for WRNL for the AHF shirts!
Living in Eastern Iowa for the past 20 years I've learned the best way to shut up most Hawk fans is to start asking them questions about their players. Most "Hawk Fans" would be hard pressed to name over 30% of their starters for any given sport. Oddly enough their "wrestling fans" are the worst for this.
Ya, I'd say that person's something of a cross between Where's Waldo Hok and Tavern Hok.
Had no idea the site was made by a fellow fanatic. Awesome blog.
Exactly. I work with tons of these fans. Hardcore Hawkeyes who don't know any of the players. Maybe the starting QB (not this year).
The Hawk fans who actually know something about football, and don't disrespect ISU, are the only Hawk fans I can stand.
We get the smart ones who want to be engineers... Haha
Had a couple of those turds sitting next to me at the Baylor game in full Hok gear. There was even a home Hok game, someone asked them why they were there and they said they wanted to see some good football . . . by Baylor. That didn't work out so well for them. Just can't imagine spending money to go root against a team.
Helps when there's no financial incentive for them stay in IL:
ISU out-of-state: ~31.5k/year (source)
UIUC in-state: 29.5-34.5k/year (source)
That actually had a lot to do with why I came to ISU. I like the campus and the AerE department here much better, and with no financial incentive to seriously consider UIUC (I'm originally from IL) I didn't bother applying there.
I think Illinois also requires a student to be admitted into a college, not just the university. Not sure if that makes admission to a certain college, like engineering, more competitive or not.
It can increase the competition since you have to be "declared". And if you want to switch majors...good luck. I have a friend who failed out of UIUC because he couldn't pass calculus, which was required for the Architecture program he was admitted to, and he wasn't allowed to switch to a different major until after 2 years. The catch was that after failing calc 3 times he was booted from the architecture program, and without being in a program he was also out of the university.
UIUC has the no-switching-until-year-3 rule to try and avoid backdoor admissions (e.g., I couldn't get into engineering, so I'll enter as business and then switch majors right away). They also, I believe, don't accept sophomore transfers. You either come in as a freshman, or you complete 2 years at a community college and then be admitted with an Associates. Knocking some courses out with a year at CC and then transferring doesn't work.
My friend says he met a girl from Illinois that was telling people that Iowa State has the neighboring states get in-state tuition rule. He asked her what she was paying and it was out of state tuition. She didn't even realize our out of state was cheaper than Illinois' in state tuition.
