In terms of people I have run into far more problems with A&M fans where I live. Most of my UT neighbors seem to be more knowledgeable and more fun to watch games with.
I do understand some frustrations towards the North in the Big12. And if you look at us during the majority of the Big12 we really haven't done our part in helping the conference.
I'm not saying that we don't belong, I just can't wait for the day that we are contenders again for at least the North, and hopefully someday the entire conference.
Most of the Texas fans bashing us are still hurt over Chizik leaving them for us. There wouldn't have been any discussion in Texas about Iowa State winning or losing if we didn't have Chizik. Its nothing more than some hurt egos over on that message board.
I took a lot of good-natured heat yesterday from my UT alum coworkers, but before this game I hadn't encountered anyone who has voiced any displeasure or animosity towards Chizik. Funny how after one game, they all come out of the woodwork and starting slinging mud.
And as an ISU fan, I've been treated with a sort of humorous neglect, like, "Oh, look, the little Cyclone fan is trying to win. He thinks he's us. How cute." I, too, greatly anticipate the day when we can put Texas in their place. Until then, however, I am forced to hope that they somehow blow it against Arkansas State today so I can have some measure of peace.
What do you guys expect from Texas fans? Quite frankly, we are possibly the most embarassing team in the conference right now. Start beating Kent State putting up a fight against Big 12 South schools and we might get some respect.
I don't know about the chances we have against UT later this year but App. St proves that you never know what can happen...so it would be VERY sweet to take down Texas who is know ripping us for Kent St.
