I am not the type to rant and write out FanPosts but something from little brothers fans over in Ames is really driving me nuts this year. I have heard this complaint in years past but this year it seems to be really getting out of control. The argument from ISU fans is that most Iowa fans are not actually Iowa grads and therefore have no right to support the sports teams of the University. This honestly makes no sense to me and reeks of jealousy. This is much like saying because none of us in Iowa live in a city that hosts a professional football team we should not be allowed to follow the NFL. "How dare you like the Bears, you don't live in Chicago!" should be the rallying cry coming from Ames as Chicago fans gather to watch a Bears game. The truth of the situation is that Iowans who didn't go to college want to follow a program that represents the State they live in. This leaves them with 3 choices if they are looking at the national level and the choice is clear. I see no reason why someone who grew up watching the Hawks and bleeds black and gold but chose to go into the workforce after high school cannot be a fan. What ISU fans really are saying when they get angry about all of our fans is, "Wow, I wish I was born into a family that followed THAT program." I get it, it sucks that you were born into a family that chose to follow an embarrassing failure of a football program, but stop trying to ruin the fun for everyone else. On Iowa and Go Hawks!
