    Does anybody else have to deal with this? All the Iowa fans say we (ISU) haven't played anyone good, and it drives me insane hearing them say it. I mean seriously, we beat Michigan, BYU in Provo and Iowa. Then look at their schedule, they haven't played anyone at all! I mean for them I guess Nebraska is a big win.

    I did but most of them have shut up by now. There's always "that guy" though.

    They're literally putting down their own team.

    It's called little brother syndrome. Happens when you haven't beaten a ranked team in quite some time. I'd say ignore it and it'll go away- but it won't.

    Just respond with, "We have some good wins, but you're right, Iowa isn't any good."

    If they are saying the bolded, just smile and nod, then tell them you agree with them that Iowa isn't good.

    "Annoying Iowa fans who don't shut up." Thread title is redundant.

    Unlike last year, I now work in an exclusively Cyclone fan office. It's been fabulous.

    Give them the channel lineup for the tournament, so they know where to watch our future games.

    I keep hearing foul disparity. Game was almost a month ago. They need to look at box score on their brilliant home victory over UNO.

    Just inform them to look at the non conference SOS ratings. Our's was rated about twice as difficult as theirs. Then the conversation will be over.

    Point to records against ranked teams. That's a fun argument.

    YES ! Dealing with the Pompous, Loud, Annoying, Irritating, Self Righteous, Blind, Boisterous, Hypocritical Iowa Fan is really worse then actually watching Iowa teams play. If Iowa just had their sports teams without their most annoying fans it could be tolerated. Currently the only enjoyment I get right now is watching the ticking time bomb Fran prancing around building up steam getting ready to blow every game. It's priceless entertainment how he moves around without turning his head with his hair glued to his head.

    You could just choose not to watch their games. That's my normal policy. It's good for the eyes.
