I have a pretty good read on most of the posters here, but I was curious and Brad's thread got me thinking about it.
Obviously BBall is a little more positive to talk about right now. I don't really watch anything besides the men's hoops and football. I'd put mine at 55/45, with hoops getting the edge.
40/40 Football and wrestling
Bball 20 probably
I get emotional about all of em but more so Football and wrestling but Fran is pulling me back in on basketball a little more than the past
Gold medals aren't really made of gold. They're made of sweat, determination, and a hard-to-find alloy called guts.
I really don't think I have a preference. Football and basketball in different seasons for the most part, and I am able to watch both wrestling and basketball without much overlap. I look forward to all the seasons really
Don't care about basketball at all, it's a boy sport played during men's wrestling season. We could lose every game for the next 5 years and you would never hear me complain. We could win three straight championships and you would never hear me brag about it
Football 55 Wrestling 45

Because I played (and now coach) basketball, I've always cared a lot more about hoops. I became a little apathetic during the Lick years, but Fran has brought me back.
.8 wrestling Jumper you made me sad ,
I'm a basketball addict, like jumper. I'd say I'm probably 60% basketball 38% football and 2% everything else. I also like to think that I can talk (teach something) about basketball to someone and learn about it from everyone. I'll never turn down a basketball conversation but I will walk away from football talks when I'm mad. I also think I watch more college basketball than football by far. I feel bad for my Twitter followers.

Mine would probably be:
I just started getting into wrestling the last couple years but its working its way up there.
You are learning well young Padawan
Thank you. You going to Penn St. Friday?
Brad was supposed to teach me about wrestling, but he's mean and retracted his offer.
You never try dont give me that crap, and no king I have to work.
I don't like your tone.
Wow. Not one mention of the #23 women's basketball team. What's up with that? Misogynist?
You don't need to answer.
Before there was space or time there was rock and roll.
See 0.2% other.
Sorry, I'll root for them, and want them to do well, might even catch a game every now and then, definitely not often. But I have no excitement for their season.
Pretty much like Buck, however, I think I can put some numbers on it.
Women's Hoop 50
**You're probably not going to believe me, but I really did get an A- in calculus in college
'Texan by birth, Hawkeye by the Grace of God'
Only KK can come up with 269% when 100% is the target. He always was an over-achiever!
Field Hockey- 17%
Swimming and Diving- 10%
It's tough being politically correct! Maybe I misplaced some decimal points on some of them.
Golden........I'm guessing those %'s are the reverse of your true, blue Hawkeye preferences.
However, I'm definitely not in-tuned to the PC enviro that you are, over there near Ames.
I am a very sensitive kind of guy, fully in touch with my feminine side.
Now all I need is a willing female once in awhile so we can do some bonding.
How many sports does Iowa have? Everyone of them gets 100% of me....yes even the track teams.
Wow. This is a lot tougher question than I expected when I first read the thread.
I am an avid Football fan, but almost 100% is college only. For the last 20 years, the NFL has left me cold. I follow the Iowa Women's Basketball Team as well as the Men's team. I would be a lot more involved in Wrestling if it was on TV more.
So the composite score:
Iowa Football 55%
Iowa Men's Basketball 15%
Iowa Women's Basketball 15%
Iowa wrestling 10%
Iowa Field Hockey, Men's & Women's Soccer, Baseball, Softball, Sailing, and Gymnastics 5%
I think that adds to 100%
33%football, 33%bball, 33%wrestling - 1% womens gymnastics.....just b/c.
