I figure this will help everyone get a pretty good rapport with each other and maybe help some new users feel welcome.
I'm hawkifish, I joined here about a year ago due in large part to Todd W's top notch recruiting info. Since then I've had more and more fun talking with everyone on this OT board as more and more posters have joined. I don't have any message board history to speak of, lurked a few places but never joined. I am a mod here and like banning people, especially Brommy and Worly.
I started here after a ban on Rivals (something involving a topless pic on the W. Mich board). I post on both sites now, but spend most of my time here. I hope this place takes off, and I'm glad we've added a bunch of quality new posters from other hawkeye sites. Needs more women. I like the moderating here. I like how most things are not off limits, and love that politics and religion are. However, I do feel like some controversial topics can be discussed respectfully without getting the thread locked so quickly.
In case anyone didn't know, I'm a second year med student but don't know what area I really want to work in. I like free clinics and hope to get some experience in a few soon. I live in Des Moines and have met and had beers with several posters here. Unfortunately last time Misty was in town we couldn't meet up. I'd be up for meeting any of you bastages.
For sports, I love anything Iowa, the Green Bay Packers, and the Yankees and Cardinals for baseball.
For music, rock, hard rock, older jazz, blues, and dirt road (or Texas, Americana, alternative, whatever you want to call it) country are my favorites.

I'm jshawks or js for short. I'm 48, have two teenage kids, a dog that I share with my g/f, and a cat. I'm a semi retired professional alcoholic but every so often I like to kick it old school. I first started posting in aol college football chatrooms back in 2002 and then gravitated to what is now Hawkeye Insider (back when it was Hawkeye Nation) in 2007. I'm a member of both the scout and rivals network, but only have about 50 posts on HR. I also occasionally post on HN, but my home board was always HI. Recently some turmoil on HI led to the banning of two of my favorite posters (Bleed and NChawk) and I was invited over here by BarryZuckerhorn (who goes by another screen name on HI) a couple of months ago and it has been my home board ever since. I really enjoy the posters here. I love to crack wise and I'll pick on anybody and everybody including myself, so don't ever take me too seriously and never be afraid to give me any crap (not that that will be a problem for most of you) When football season begins I turn into a rabid Hawk fan and even my family can't stand to be around me. For years I had season tickets to the Iowa games but the last few years I have tailed off some because of 11am kicks and issues with the tailgate gestapo. I love to tailgate at Iowa games and would love to meet some of you fine folks some time.
I'm Dendrobates , Pronounced...Den.dro.bay.tees and I am an alcoholic. Oh wait....this isn't one of those types of groups. Anyway....
I came to 247 from the move of the MSU sports website before called spartantailgate. So I mainly post on tRCMB (Red Cedar Message Board). I am a giant flirt, online and in real life, and I am labeled the attention whore on there. I like chatting with other schools on this board. I really am a female, I'm 26, and yes that is me in my avatar. I live in Michigan (Metro Detroit), and I'm from Michigan, but I lived in Iowa for 3.5 years for graduate school. The hubby and I both went to Palmer, he's the chiropractor, I got my MS in Anatomy there. I just have a job for now, looking and applying for college teaching jobs and/or phd programs. I live with my in-laws (want to kill myself). The hubby is trying to get experience. I am a big science nerd, and I love MSU sports, and college sports in general. Being from Michigan, we are all automatically Red Wings Fans, and Detroit Tigers Fans. So this is one of my outlets to prevent me from killing myself or someone else, due to living with my in-laws.
Yup, that about sums it up.
I was banned from HI and found refuge here. I enjoy the single life with no responsibilities, not even a goldfish, and my favorite posters are OhioHawk, CrestHawk69, & KFSuperStar. I like boobies, beer, and college football. My favorite animal is a Liger, it's a cross between a tiger and a lion.
I am Perk. 35, live in Tejas and I came over from the Rivals site after multiple bannings. I like to take creeper pics, but I have fallen below my self-expectations and that will change.
Some good eggs over here and I hope for more traffic. Unlike Js, I am an active alcoholic and I selfishly like it when he goes back to his old ways and posts drunk. It's nice having some different people I haven't talked to before from HI, HN, HC, whatever they hell they're called.
The Mods are great and the no politics and religion is breath of fresh air.
Wolf has a big one.
I am Viv Savage, 23. My handle is the keyboardist from the movie This Is Spinal Tap. I came from the Rivals site and have been there for about 5 years now. I joined here a couple months ago. I went to Iowa for my first two years of undergrad and transferred to Southern Illinois when I wanted to change my major in agriculture. I'm from the south suburbs of Chicago and love all things Chicago sports.
I don't party anywhere near the level I used to, but still drink on occasion. I drink micro-brews around the house and gin when I want to get drunk.
As far as music goes, I enjoy classic rock and the blues. Rory Gallagher and SRV are my favorite artists.
I enjoy video games and will beat you down in every game out there although I don't play nearly as much as I used to.
I'm KCHawk, 26, originally from Iowa, but now live down here on the Missouri side of KC. I'm getting married in a couple months to my gf of a few years. Started posting on Rivals about 6 years ago but got tired of all the BS that goes on over there and I like the articles and quickness of info you get over here. I work in the business solutions world as a consultant. I help companies save by using technology. It's pretty fun. Love getting to meet business people and get to know them.
I love all Iowa Hawkeye sports, the Atlanta Braves and Dallas Cowboys, beer, whiskey, and the 4th of July. I'm patriotic as hell, was in the military a brief amount of time before I tore my knees up, and my family is the most important thing in my life. Peace.
i am hawkirob...i will be 37 on thursday and live in CR where i am married and have a 4 yr old that makes the days worth getting up for.
i tolerate my job, but don't like it...but don't know if I have want to spend the time, money or energy going back to school again considering i went to k'wood and got done in 08 and was laid off in 09.
I posted on rivals until i got the Rivals wide ban for shenanigans on the W. Michigan board that JWolf mentioned. I could've met up with JWolf last weekend, but he decided he would rather take creeper pics of me from a 2 sections away at the Barnstormer game.
I am brad I am from Hawkeye insider I came here because of too much bs on HI cresthawk told me to check this place out and I have been here ever since. Now they call me Neo because I am the chosen one PEACE
Ok now that I am not on my phone I forgot my likes and what not. I like heroine, coke, meth and lsd. I enjoy stealing candy from babies, and laughing at midgets while running track. I like football and porno and books about war. There is literally nothing I would not do for a Klondike bar (youtube it you will see) Dendro and Misty are part time lovers for me Perk, Der and JS. I like everyone but I will donkey punch and or give you a mushroom bruise for no other reason than out of love. Ok this is a small percentage of who I am what aboot yall?

Hi I'm Morrison71, or Maury. Long time poster on Rivals. Did not get the permaban there but was close for spreading the word about 247. I'm a Dallas Cowboy homer, Mickey's malt liquor fan, and I appreciate Tony Romo and Tim Tebow. And of course a big Iowa fan like most here.
I'm derHawkeye, I'm 22 and originally from NE Iowa, but am now living in Iowa City and am going to be a senior at the University of Iowa this fall. I'm an extremely die-hard sports nut and Iowa Hawkeye fan. I root for every Hawkeye team but only really pay attention to my favorite sport, football. Other than the Hawkeyes I am a big Dallas Cowboy and Chicago Cubs fan.

No really though, I'm UI2015. I spent a while on HN - I started there about 2 years ago (and still do go there because I enjoy some posters there but the place gets old with the people ready to pitchfork KF's house to the ground). I came here on the birthday of the OT board and also made an account before that but I messed up the naming part and ended up with a town name, so I made a new handle (I know, I broke internet law 7820 section A - kill me). I am a sophomore at Iowa with a current path to Pharmacy but I'll probably switch to who the hell knows what. I have a girlfriend who is a couple months older than me because I am a badass. I'm 19 with a weirdo family, like the rest of Cedar Rapids - though I moved to a small town. I work for UIH&D this summer. I love Iowa basketball and football. I'm addicted to meth.. on AMC's "Breaking Bad" I'm a 6'3 white guy with blonde hair and blue eyes. My social security number is ___-__-____. I have the coolest dogs on the face of the planet. I was once into the drug scene but I'm off and will be forever. I drink underaged because I like to, not because I have problems, although I do have problems. If you're still reading this I'll upvote you. I like boobs. I really like women butts. I also like boobs.
Note: My best friend is not a teddy bear, but that's probably because I spend more time on the internet like a loser than most teddy bears do.

I read it all. I especially like the part about you upvoting me.
Also, I pinned this so people can find it as they join.
Hi, I'm Froggydegremlin. My moniker comes from a kids show of the 50's. Thus, I am one of the older posters. I started being a Hawkeye fan when Gary Snook was the QB and Jerry Burns was coach. Graduated high school in Ft Madison in 1968. Went into the Navy in 1969 after working as a riveter for 15 mos at Fruehauf Corp. Was an electronics spy in the Navy. Got out in 1973 and headed to college at Missouri Valley College in Marshall, Mo, which is about 60 miles east of Kansas City. Graduated college in 1976 with a degree in Psychology. In 74 I started working nights at a state hospital for the retarded because my GI Bill didn't cover the cost of a private college. Moved to Burlington, Iowa in 1978 to go to work at Hope Haven Area Development Center. Worked there for nearly 13 years and then went to work as a Family Therapist for Young house Family Services. In 1999 I started working for the State of Iowa as a Child Protective Worker. In 2008 I left the state and signed on with Mid-Iowa Family Therapy as a Community Care worker. Got fired in 2010 and then went back to work at Hope Haven. Absolutely loved being back working with the mentally and physically challenged. Retired from HH in Nov of 2011. Divorced, now live with my significant other in mt Pleasant. I've had a wonderful, highly exciting, interesting, adventurous sort on mundane life up to now and I plan on doing a lot more. I came here after being banned on HI (where I had been posting since the mid 2000's under several different names).and haven't regretted it one iota. I have done a lot (except acid) and seen a lot. I am happy to meet everyone. Oh yes, I tend to be a rather long winded story teller. Froggy
