I am fine with Surly. But voted for c.

K state is probably next closest to a rival we have currently, but my animosity is nowhere close to the level of what I feel for Iowa.

You have Gonzo on ignore? I think he's pretty reasonable, humorous and he likes bourbon. That's 3 plusses to me. I guess we are all allowed different opinions.
Gonzo is fine. Gohawks is fine. Iahawks is ok. Those are the only tolerable hawk fans on this board I can think. There might be one other, but I'm forgetting the user name

That's what JLH is for. Once she's invoked, the thread is no longer to be taken seriously if it ever was in the first place.

Sure do. He was posting that I called him a racist. (I didn't and don't think he's one) JMB responded to him saying he was the one that did that, not me.
Good enough reason for me to use the ignore.

Surly starting so many threads is mildly annoying.
Surly assuming we know as much about KSU as he does about ISU is mildly irritating.
Framing everything from KSU perspective on an ISU board is a little odd and a little condescending.

I find Surly to be harmless and don't mind him posting here. This being said, I take sports less seriously than most people and don't open many of his threads.

I guess in summary, "At least Surly's not that LakeBison guy or whatever that dude's name was."

Ahh LakeBison. He dominated ISU tailgating, LOL.

Some of these Hawk fans act civil outside of the in-state rivals forum, but are idiots in there. I don't post in there anymore so I don't know if they still act that way. Definitely two faced posters.

I guess that could explain it. That's not a term to be thrown around lightly, even if it was from a case of mistaken identity. This being said, I don't have anybody on ignore and probably won't ever do it. I'm generally pretty good at compartmentalizing negativeness. It may be my only good attribute. Well, that and my classic good looks.

To add to this, some of the Iowa posters mentioned have the same username on Hawkeye sites and would trash us over there.

I like the all lavender more so than lavender jerseys with purple shorts.

I have a soft-spot for lavender-with-purple-shorts probably for nostalgia for when I first followed ISU/Big 8 basketball. ... Rolando Blackman made it work.
