I'm a big ISU fan, but I graduated from UNI and Iowa. What does that make me???
I'll try to be nice by saying I don't mind their football and talk about the strong fundamentals and how they generally play hard.
It's not the players or even the coaches (excepting Frantic Fran). The university is great and the scholastics are great. It's the dooshie fans - since the 3rd year of Haylen Fly and Lute Lute Lute.
I met a Hawkeye football and wrestling fan but big Iowa state basketball fan. It’s weird
I talked to someone tonight who said he roots for both teams, but he prefers Iowa State. Thing is, I don't think he is a die-hard. As for me, I don't care what Iowa does one way or another. It just depends on the game.
I think the last time I pulled for the Hawkeyes was in 1996 @ Penn State.
After seeing the thread title, I thought the next part was going to say "but I went to UNI." This people are all over.
Did you daughter look at Iowa and take the tour? From what people have been telling me for a few years, Iowa just expect that everyone will want to go there, and really could care less if you actually do, while ISU makes a real effort to reach out and seems to show, that they want you in school in Ames.
What was your experience like, if you do not mind saying?
PTI, but this reminds me of my situation. Long story short, when I decided to go to school in Iowa after the Army, I sent letters to both Iowa State and Iowa requesting enrollment information. I received my booklet from Iowa State first and mailed in my application. I also heard back from ISU that I was accepted before I even received an application from Iowa. Their loss! So glad I became a Cyclone!
Sincerely, you sound like a great parent. Even if it were the other way around.

His daughter dropping him off at college?
When my son went on his visit, I was surprised when they asked if any alums were there and I was the only one to raise my hand. Figured there would be more. Even at orientation there were only a few of us.
My genuine hopes and encouragement for her success.
At least with option 3, I get to call them idiots.
I have a buddy that's a huge hawk fan in everything except basketball. He hates Fran, and likes ISU's program.
“I’m a big Iowa State fan, but I...”
...hate the the hawks with every fiber of my being. Absolute. 100% Authentic. Genuine. Hate. I will never, EVER root for the hawks in any capacity. Yeah, maybe it’s borderline sick or something but I don’t care. It’s who I am and how I was raised and I’m not going to apologize for it. I’ll never understand those that say want the other school to win when they are not playing each other. I usually just smile and say ok and inside think you don’t even understand what you are saying. It blows my freaking mind. Pretty sure if you we standing in the garden, you wouldn’t be rooting for the snake and Eve both at the same time. Screw Iowa. Always and Forever.
Being outside of Iowa I can't really say that their fans bother me. My entire family and a lot of friends are Iowa fans. The only thing that sucks is being highly outnumbered when we watch the CyHawk game. In 16 years that I have been in Albuquerque I have met two ISU fans and probably around 30 Iowa fans, but they were cool.
Most common for me is seeing them in their gear, and after a little conversation, it's clear that they know very little about their own team.
