Seriously, as much as Hawkeye fan hates to admit it, it would take severe case of myopia not to see the rise of the Cyclone fan base in the DM metro.
For over a hundred years the University of Iowa has had a largely unchallenge place in the heart of average Iowa sports fan.
Though I'd have to ask . . . . are there really ANY Iowa State fans? Aren't they just all Iowa Hawkeye haters?
PERFECT example of a 'clone fan.
Why is this argument always brought up? Do you have to graduate from ISU to be a 'clone fan and vice/versa with Iowa? I must not have gotten my "Iowa Hawkeye Fan Application" paperwork mailed in time to actually be considered a fan. What's the criteria? I'm a Steelers fan, though I've never lived in Pittsburgh. Does that count . . . or do I have to go through the Steeler Fan Zoning Commission?
You have no right to define the criteria for being a fan if you can't even support your own team!
I live in University Heights, a couple blocks from Kinnick Stadium. You should see some of the jokers going to Hawkeye games. Definitely not college graduates.

Just thought I'd point that out.
Oh please.....if you're a fan of a team you're a fan. It doesn't matter how many games you go to or if you know the starting line up. What really matters is pride and expectation.
I'm just fascinated by this argument by ISU fans.
There are no real 'clone fans, only Hawkeye haters AND ISU grads you have no other choice. Hawk fans CHOSE the Hawks, and they chose wisely
You can spot the Hawkeye fans easily too....they're the ones waiting on you in the check out line
I also know transplants to this state who are ISU fans, they never graduated from ISU.
