Nah, wouldn't do that. I actually wore some ISU gear when I was up there for Dad's Day at my daughter's sorority.
My wife and I refused any type of hawk gear when our daughter was going to school at Iowa. I always wore cardinal and gold. My motto was "Since I'm signing the check to U of I , I can wear whatever the hell I want!" Other people laughed, but agreed with me.

To each his/her own. My daughter bought me an ISU henley and I got a hat for Dad's Day. Was happy to wear it.

Our daughter knew better, she asked us if we would wear any hawk stuff, we politely said no. We told her it would probably end up in Goodwill and told her to save her money.

Did you graduate from Iowa? I don’t know what I would do if I had a kid at Iowa. My diploma may spontaneously ignite if I did.

Yes my wife and I both graduated Iowa. Daughter 1 visited Iowa as well, but we were secretly hoping she'd pick ISU because we're in central Iowa and it's so much closer. Plus the ISU campus is very, very nice and she could get by without a car the first year. Throwing on an ISU shirt and hat a few times a year to make her happy is a no-brainer for me.

How can you live with yourself if you can't tell your daughter to shove it and burn any rivalry gear in front of her.

I think we should give AW a break here.....he was just following the lead of EIU which doesn't pay for the hospital contracts & workers.

Maybe they have a class in that field.... "Crook 101...the HOK Way".
