    Tom Herman was the secret to CPRs early success.

    The number of eyeballs provided by the wrestling program amount to little more than a fart in the wind compared to revenue generating sports.
    Trumpeting a successful wrestling program is like bragging about having an excellent custodial staff. Good for you. I'm sure they work hard. But in the grand scheme of things, it's only a tiny feather in your cap.

    And there's no such thing as a "wrestling tradition" in this day and age. Not on the collegiate level. Hanging your hat on past success in a niche sport is a quick way to let everyone know that you don't have a lot going for you. It's like going to a strip club still wearing your work uniform from McDonald's.

    (Am I getting closer @Doc ?)

    No they don't. They're just NPCs who go about their daily routines, scratching and rutting and following their programming. They don't even bleed when you cut them. They just ooze taffy.

    (To be clear, this is a hot take thread. I've never actually cut a Hawkeye fan. Mostly because of the smell. Also I'm afraid their fandom might spread via contact with bodily fluids.)

    I have never seen a stripper in a McDonalds uniform, but if she handed out cheeseburgers during her show, she would probably get a good crowd.

    I respect the University of Iowa as an institution. Because beating a team you respect means more, and losing to them hurts less. That doesn't mean I like them, more: [​IMG]

    The secondary Cy logo sucks, but not as much as the bugle. Our Athletic Dept could do a whole lot better in that area.

    The Iowa game is meaningless outside of bragging rights, pride and making the CFP. I'm not holding my breath on the CFP, but what's the point of sports without bragging rights and pride?

    The bugle logo has grown on me.

    I love @CyTwins, but he overdoes it sometimes.

    I’d be worried about catching more than their fandom

    I'm afraid you've got it backwards. The person in the McDonald's uniform is the patron of the strip club, not the stripper.
    I think we can all agree that a stripper in a McDonald's uniform is hot as ****. Everyone knows the progression of stripper sexiness goes Naughty Librarian>Catholic School Girl outfit>McDonald's uniform. It's science.

    Oh man, if only the sport of wrestling was as popular as a stripper wearing a McDonald's uniform. Then there wouldn't be any problem. But, it's just doesn't work like that. If wrestling were a stripper, it would probably be the 10:30 AM, pre lunch rush, cesarian scar and needle tracks, remembers that one time when Richard Dryfuss came in "looking for directions" and stayed for a couple of dances, been wearing the same g-string since Bush 1 was in office, kind of gal.

    8AM classes were actually the best ones. Easy A because no one showed up for pop quizzes.

    The vast majority of our fans are the worst. I couldn't assemble a bigger group of nerds and virgins with less people skills if my life depended on it. Throw in the grouchy small town old people and it's really bad.

    This is why I go to exactly one football and men's bb game a year and as many road games as I can.

    Unpopular enough?

    It wasn't the schedule that led to those 2-10 or 3-9ish type of football seasons.

    They happened because ISU wasn't very good.

    Our fan base is terrible at handling even the slightest amount of sustained success in football.
