I hear from one particular Cyclone fan who i am good friends with who says he really dislikes iowa because all of his friends that are hawkeye fans are obnoxious. I always counter with the fact that many cyclone fans genuinely seem more happy when they hawkeyes lose than when the cyclones win (i have seen many times where state fans will comment on iowa losing but will be crickets when they upset a team a week later) and that they hate iowa more than like iowa state.
case in point, an old roommate of mine from way back just posted this:
"I am looking all over the place but do not see where the Hawks are playing in the tourney at??? GO STATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!" proving that his hatred for iowa is more powerful than his liking iowa state, since this post was mostly to tear down iowa and not promote the cyclones.
i left the following as a reply:
"why is it that many cyclone fans seem to hate iowa more than they actually like iowa state?
and didn't state lose to iowa?"
if he replies, it will be a bunch of excuses that start off like "well......."

Iowa beat the Clowns, head to head.
Iowa played in a tougher conference.
Iowa has already won a game in the post season.
Sagarin Computer rankings has Iowa ahead of ISU at season's end.
Unless the cyclones get to the elite 8, I won't be impressed by them.
I might favor them in a couple of games, but if they lose, so what.
Pretty much think most of the fans have Hawkeye envy.
But.......I do like their coach, Fred Hoiberg a lot. What a class act and all around cool guy.

Clown fans are the biggest maggots on the face of this planet. Iowa Owns them in every important athletic series we have by an almost 2-1 margin, and yet these wanna be's run their pie hole like they won the national championship whenever Iowa loses. You are right Rob, more than once I have heard clown fans say that they didn't care if they went 1-11 in football, as long as that one win was against Iowa. The Warden at Transfer U has pilfered a band of misfits that have either been kicked off or encouraged to leave other programs, plays in a conference who's only real team is Kansas, and then they have the gall to get diarrhea of the mouth. There is no more classic case of penis envy than lil bro's fans who's football program make the Chicago Cubs championship streak look short by comparison. A wrestling program that was still #2 in the state when the great Cael Sanderson was coaching them, and a basketball program that over the long haul still pales in comparison to Iowa's over all success. But yeah, their in the tourney...whoopty doo. ND will take care of that.
If I lived in Iowa I would definitely root for the Hawkeyes.

it is funny, there are a couple other "cyclone fans" making comments on his facebook wall....I don't know if you can even consider them cyclone fans because their posts have are mostly making fun of iowa and the NIT.
Gotta love the tick turds from the

I don't love um either. However I hope they do good in the NCAA. We beat um. If they win that makes us look all the better. I have family who are ISU grads so don't get all excited about it......
Before there was space or time there was rock and roll.
Couldn't agree more. A buddy of mine posts more Anti-Hawk stuff on facebook, than he does pro-ISU stuff. And after they beat Oklahoma State 2 years ago, the first thing he wrote on fbook was "How do you like that Hawk fans?" I responded simply w/ "this is "little brother syndrome" at it's finest, because when a little brother does something good he immediately wants the big brother to know. Hawk fans didn't think about ISU immediately after we won the Orange Bowl a few years ago." And he never responded back to me on that.

I have a few Clone friends that do the same thing. They are annoying, but not all of them are like that. Losing is a habit, and when you're so used to losing like they are you have to turn to something. Also, look at Iowa State's super great history of making the tournament a whole 14 times and just 1 Elite Eight and 1 Final Four (when there was only 8 teams selected). Okay, yeah, they have a ton of room to talk.

I often have a hard time deciding who I hate more-ISU fans or Nebraska fans.
Then I go home for a few days, and the choice becomes clear again-Nebby fans are worse. But I also have a profound hatred for ISU.
And Steve Alford. f*** him, too.
