    To me, ISU is clearly number 3 here and the gap to 4 is pretty significant. FWIW, I'd say Iowa, Nebbie and NDSU would be battling for number 4. I'm not counting the D3 schools but St Thomas and St Johns have pretty big followings too.

    I really think Hoiberg has something to do with this. He was so well-liked in Minnesota. Especially when people realized that he bought a cabin Up North just like their families had.

    Also, the realization that, if your kid doesn't want to go to or can't get into MN or Wisconsin, there is a pretty affordable, top-of-the-line engineering school just to the south helped.

    I don't think bill Fennelly coachs anywhere else.

    I wouldn't mind him coaching Iowa (would bother me some being a Packers fan) since I think he would be a poor coach. IMO, he is one of those players who had such natural ability that he would struggle explaining it to those who aren't at his level.

    That's called Stockholm Syndrome. I know my family all despises Nebraska because of the Omaha media. And it gets a little worse each year.

    I think a state with a population barely over 3M having two teams in the top 28 in attendance is pretty solid.
