    I found this interesting after making the journey to a TOE site. After looking at the threads on the Iowa forum site, I did a snippet of all "Views" portion of the post that were on the that home page:

    Wow!! This is crazy. Are hawk fans afraid to post on their own website or what? Or is it because who runs it? I did look at the one that is titled "All Time Starting 5 Native Iowans" The post was started by Rob Howe an administrator. After reading down a few posts someone stated that Ricky Davis wasn't a native Iowan. Mr. Howe comes back and says, "If you go through junior high and high school in Iowa, you qualify. My question. My rules. :D"

    I can see why no one would post on this site when you have a "ruler" like Rob moving the goal posts on you all the time. What a work of art he is as an administrator. This is probably why CF has a lot of hawk troll posters on here as they are afraid to speak their peace under the watchful eye of Mr. Howe on HN. They have to migrate to CF to "sow their oats" so to speak. All I can do is laugh at the HN website. It's a funny site to visit and one I would never want to try to be part of.

    I think most Hawk fans will admit their fourms suck.

    Aren’t most of their fans on here too much to spend any time anywhere else?

    I haven't been there since Miller left. Only good thing about that site was the Miller & Deace podcasts.

    The word "butthurt" really does describe him. His playground, his rules it seems.

    Occasionally, I wander over to that cesspool. Rob Howe is the best thing about HN. Seriously, not just the best of a really bad group, but he seems actually to have common sense, objectivity, and insight. Jon Miller was much, much more czar-like with much, much less to contribute.

    Hawkeye Nation site sucks for sure. Rivals premium board is good, but I wouldn't wade around the free board there either.

    Nobody posts on HR or HN. HR used to have an active wrestling forum but I don't think they even have that anymore

    Just curious - does a view only (from a member that just casually reads, then leaves) or from a non-member lurker (we have lots of those) count in those view counts? If that's a "join to post" or "pay to post" site, it could impact the number of people posting vs the number of people only viewing.

    I miss reading the deranged rants from "Kujawa Man". He was somewhat paranoid and very easy to intimidate. Like many Hoks.

    Most Hawk fans still have a flip phone and can’t get on the internet.

    There was a large wave of us that were active as our kids went through but tailed off when they were going into their junior years in HS roughly. The college board got some of the same treatment that the Iowa preps wrestling board got. One dude who has serious issues kept attacking the regulars and they got tired of it and left. When he realized that him trying to call them out by insulting them didn't work anymore, it just died.

    On a side note...Jon Miller quit Hawkeye Nation last December? Anyway, left to work in the oil industry

    Unfortunate timing
