UNI never going to be FBS. Never going to happen with their AD budget problems, lack of alumni, market, and corporate entities willing to shell out FBS-type money. Honestly I'm really surprised we have 2 FBS schools and a third D1 school in our little state. Let the purple hawks talk.
My mom is a uni alum and former professor there and she says all the time how they should just drop to D3 or drop sports all together and proudly roots for isu over uni everytime. I absolutely hate playing uni, having grown up in cedar falls I can say they're worse than hok fans and they won't stop talking about how they're relevant (they still brag about beating Kansas back three years ago and its always a quick comeback for them when you say they suck) and they're gonna jump up to the MAC, which somehow makes them better than isu. I'd be much more excited about playing drake than uni. I'd like to see Iowa and isu refuse to play uni in football or basketball. Let them rot
Used to live in Waterloo/Cedar Falls, I'd rather live in a house in the middle of the student section of Kinnick than move back there due to the ridiculousness of that fanbase... lucky for them they have Gary Rima to help them pretend to actually matter. His pre-show introduction is possibly the dumbest thing on radio. I know ISU has some weak callers to those shows but maaaaaaan, the ones calling in for UNI I AM drove me nuts with the irrationality. The whole conference re-alignment was amusing on that front at least, verified that most are just closet Hawks excited at the prospect of being able to root for the in-state team while still rooting against ISU for a 2nd time each season.
