    The wife and I went to Lubbock for the football game last weekend. We do road trips for some f'ball and b'ball games several times a year. It never fails that almost without exception, we will see a couple of Hawkeyes fans all decked out in black and gold, at the game. Can someone help me understand what's up with that. If they are going to go to watch good football, at least wear something a little less offensive.

    Every road game I've been to has had Hawk fans.

    I think I saw that Iowa was playing at the same time so maybe they were going that route.

    Of course, that would require Iowa fans to know when Iowa is playing so....

    Every time I'm at Wrigley in the Summer there is at least 3 or 4 decked out in Hawk Gear. I cant help but ask each of them "Who do the hawks play today?"

    Most tone deaf fanbase

    Of course there were. Sad, but as others have said, it always happens.

    You mean even less offensive than Iowa's offense?

    Same goes for the game watches in Denver. Without fail there is always 1 or 2 hawk fans at our game watches. Sometimes more even though there are at least three Iowa bars within walking distance. I’ve come to the conclusion they’re the big brother with no friends.

    It’d be like someone wearing Sooner gear to Jack Trice this weekend. I’d be like- “Are you mental??” You’re attending a game where you don’t have a dog in the fight. Don’t you have anything better to do?

    I mean, I get it if you are a native Iowan living in TX and want to see an Iowa team play. But just wear neutral gear unless your goal is to get dirty looks from people.

    Seen them at every bowl game I’ve been to. I wouldn’t even think of going to an Iowa bowl game and if I did, I wouldn’t wear ISU gear. Dumb, but there you go.

    I saw a guy at the Alamo Bowl decked out in Hawk gear. Later they showed the same f*ck celebrating on the jumbotron with a bunch of Coug fans. I'm still pissed about that. That was a sh!t move by the Alamo bowl.

    I think one of the Hawk fans was a veteran. Perhaps the same one they showed later that got booed loudly.

    Ran into people like that in Austin at the Texas game last year. Biggest dicks I think I’ve encountered. After the game one came up and said “nice try bud”
