    As ISU pushes east taking over more counties, Iowa trying to flank from the west.

    hammer and anvil tactic. Bold move. Seems to me the hammer part should be a bit bigger though...

    Even if you put the purple Hok counties with the bumblebee Hok counties it's 71 to 28 for the good guys.

    History has shown that the conquering army breeds with the women to insure that the next generation falls in line. Clearly the Cyclones are following the same strategy. We are just out breeding the eastern brethren.

    Who are they breeding with? According to U.S. News & World Report, Iowa State's enrollment is 56.9% men and 43.1% women.

    I grew up in Lyon County. Until I got to ISU I'd just assumed the whole of rural Iowa was just like most of us - tavern hoks to the bone who'd never been to Iowa City nor knew it was, in fact, an actual university. Tons of farmers up that way that can't resist a jab at ISU when given an opportunity.

    Still, strange to see this. Had to have been like 9-8 in favor of EIU, if even that many in total.

    No love for LAS at ISU in this thread. :(

    Some emphasis on the LA part here.

    Would you like fries with that, sir?

    When you have a lower level of education quality, you enroll as many kids as possible, then you have something to brag about.
