    Someone please correct me if I'm wrong, but did anyone else see the guy decked out in his Iowa gear at the UNLV game? I saw him on TV and I THOUGHT he was cheering for UNLV when they scored.

    Anyone else see this?

    Yeah, I saw him. Remember, Iowa fans don't care about Iowa State. :no:

    I was at the game & saw 2 different guys that were decked out in Hawkeye gear. One of them ended up chatting with my wife while we were tailgating. He thought he was getting in some sly digs at ISU until my wife offered her condolences for losing to Pitt earlier in the day. The guy didn't even know that Iowa had lost & promptly sulked away with his tail between his legs.

    I noticed that too and pointed it out to the people I was watching the game with. We sure got a good laugh.

    There were three different Iowa fans on our plane from Cedar Rapids heading out here. They were all going to the game.

    I saw several people wearing Iowa crap. I don't understand why people do that. I don't show up to Iowa games wearing ISU stuff, unless we are playing them. If you want to go to Vegas to cheer against ISU atleast wear UNLV stuff. Come on how pathetic can people be?

    Do you really think they are smart enough to take a sly dig? I think the more likely scenario is that hawk fans just keep getting lost. I know I get Pittsburgh and Vegas mixed up all the time....

    That is the only thing I can think of that can explain the hawk gear I see at JTS on gamedays. Can somebody please teach hawk fans how to use a map!

    That would be like teaching a dog to make a ham and cheese sandwich. Although a shock collar would be fun to put on your average hawk fan.

    Probably there to boo Jake and was relieved to see that he wasn't in the game.

    I saw a car in the parking lot with one Hawk flag and one Rebel flag flying from the windows. I don't understand the reason for flying the Hawk flag but it was nice of them to mark the parolee section for us.

    A lady sitting right behind us was wearing a Colorado jersey. I'm assuming some people go to a football game and use it as an excuse to wear the one jersey they own. I don't buy jerseys because I wont wear them anywhere except a game, I guess I can see justifying the expenditure by wearing it to "other" games.

    I'm going to the Iowa / Northwestern game on Saturday - was planning to dress in neutral colors, but now I'm not sure. What jerks!

    Sounds like you need to bust out some purple! Hawk fans are complete tools, in fact you often will see them wearing shirts from the band tool because they dont realize its a band. In any event, give them a taste of their own crap and show up in Northwestern gear. :wink:

    Yes, they were out as always at ISU games.

    I am trying to determine if they are "fans by proxy" or doing as a dig on the ISU fans.

    A guy in an Iowa shirt walks by us going up the stairs...

    My friend John: "Go Pitt!"
    His wife: "You don't want to start with him he's been drinking."
    My friend John: "No ****! Has been drunk all week? He's on the complete opposite side of the country and in the wrong clothes."

    I had friends at the game who were Iowa fans... we were part of a group... they DIDN'T wear their Iowa gear to the game though.

    I just got back from Vegas and we were one of the first cars in the lot for tailgate. It was sad that we were parked next to at least 15 hawkeye fans giving us crap. They were all decked out in Iowa stuff as well as Rebel stuff - really sad.
    I think I got pretty wasted and made a note to them that Pittsburgh was on the other side of the country.
