    This is the only time I’ll post here and I’ll delete my account soon after but I was curious what your fanbase thinks. Over on the K-State rivals board we had a poll before the game Saturday and the question was: Is Iowa State a rival? The result care back as Yes: 261 No: 166.

    I wanted to see if you guys over here think of Kansas State as a rival now. Consensus over on our site was that at first “Farmaggedon” seemed like a manufactured attempt at a rivalry after Mizzou and Nebraska left the conference. But now it has become somewhat real with Matt Campbell as coach and you guys having a good team. Thoughts?

    Also best of luck in your bowl game!

    All I know is that losing 10 of the last 11 to KSU is extremely annoying. Especially when the last few at least have been shocking or frustrating loses. I really want to beat KSU, but I don't know if that makes them more a rival than any other Big XII opponent. I really want to beat OU and Texas too.

    I'd say yes, but recent history in this series has been abysmal for us

    ISU has lost too many in recent years for this to be a rivalry...

    Definitely a rivalry in basketball, we’ve been beating the Selfies regularly. Football seems one-sided with the way that program has cratered but maybe some Miles magic can rejuvenate them a little bit.

    I voted yes, but you can drop your condescension that it only became a rivalry once Matt Campbell fielded a good team.

    Some of those teams you fielded in the early Bill Snyder 2.0 era (back to back games at Arrowhead) were not good. One could argue the early Rhoads' teams were better than the early Bill Snyder 2.0 teams.

    K State fans are too cordial and we haven't won enough against them in recent history for it to be a rivalry

    I’d say yes in basketball, but no in football. However:

    Series history: Iowa State owns the all-time series record against Kansas State, 50-49-4.

    I say yes. Despite the outcome of the last dozen games, ISU was in almost everyone of those games, and probably would have won several of those games if not for some horribly creative officiating and poor coaching.

    Saturday was really disappointing because KSU clearly controlled both lines and won fairly easy.

    I say not a rival. I would think that you get more emotional or anxious when playing a rival. K State doesn't even move the needle for me.

    Our only real rival in football is Iowa. Nothing else comes close.

    Based off fan reactions after losing, yes.
