Dear Hawkeye Fans,
We need to have a heart to heart. When I say this, I mean it in the nicest way possible, most of you are dicks. I get that we are rivals and things can get heated between us, but could you have a little class in public please? Saying things like "I fucking hate the Cyclones so much" and "You guys gargle balls so bad" in a public venue while trying to network is just plain classless.
I do not hate you because you're an Iowa fan. Actually I have a soft spot for Iowa in my heart, considering I got my graduate degree there. I hate you because you are rude, pompous and childish. Many of you say you do not care about this game and yet more vile hatred comes out of your mouth during this game than any other. If you lose, you instantly write it off and say you're the better team. If you win, you say we expected to win. Either way, you discount reality and create your own. I'm okay with playful banter and even a little harsh play in public places, but can we cut the crap? When you are trying to specifically insult Cyclones by turning your head so the nearest Cyclone can hear you and saying "They suck so bad, if I was a Cyclone fan I would kill myself" it is rude. Living all over the country and seeing many different fanbases I would compare you guys to Nebraska or Alabama. Nothing else matters and you generally wish horrible things on the person that roots against you.
I know not all Iowa fans are like this and I even have a few that I have come to enjoy their presence even during Iowa v. Iowa State competitions. All I am saying is grow the fuck up in public. You're representing your school and representing the state.
Lastly, props on your win tonight, it was a well played game and it would be nice to see some success for one of our programs this year.
