    You love Iowa. But is Football or B-Ball #1?

    It's a great time to be a Hawk. In my lifetime, there are only three other times where I was more torn between basketball and football: 1981 (I was barely alive, though), 1987 and 2002. We have arrived at an impasse once again. The count so far? Football 2 ('81 and '02), Basketball 1 ('87).


    Now, it's time to close ranks once again.

    for me also it is a question of time of life. i grew up more of a b-ball fan. even went to a couple of Dr Tom's b-ball camps. man did i love kingsbury.

    but, esp after Dr Tom got the boot, b-ball has been passed by football. now, if fran can get us back to running and gunning, i find b-ball much more enjoyable to watch like that than our current style of football.

    It is close between Womens field hockey or rowing. The tailgating is awesome, but I do tape it at home because after tailgating I do tend be lost during thethick of the action

    I use to work concession stand for my team growing up so was in CHA alot (ofcourse once action started my friends and I would watch the game at top of the steps).
    On other hand my grandparents would take RV to Kinnick and tailgate every Sat. since I can remember, the horn was even our fight song....
    It's a toss up football is still top dog, although it is great to see basketball turning corner again and the energy back in the program. I only wish I could attend more of both but hardly get back for games... My neighbors still know when Iowa games are on :-)

    There are a litany of sports that could be included here. I understand that wrestling could be up there, and I share that sentiment. Love me some Iowa wrestling (as some on here know). That said, I'm not interested in that dynamic, as Iowa Wrestling interest stays relatively constant since 1975, whereas Iowa football and basketball have had a surge and retreat relationship during that time. The current state of that dynamic is what I'm interested in. Sorry, fellow wrestling fans. And field hockey, softball, baseball, etc....

    I am a Iowa Hawkeye fan, no matter what sport. But Iowa Men's Basketball is my true first love.

    Football is the only answer if you were born in 'merica.

    Basketball was relevant before football, basketball is the reason why I am a Hawkeye fan today. Iowa beating Georgetown was one of my earliest memory of Hawkeye basketball.

    football>wrestling>bball, and I'm a bball guy. I have a feeling that bball and wrestling will switch during the season.
