I am not trying to be disrespectful at all with this reply. Actually the reply goes to TomWright, too. Tom seems to think that Iowa should view PSU as a wrestling rival and you seem to think that tOSU is a football rival. I can not stress enough that no one in the Big 10 thinks of PSU as a rival. PSU is just another team we have to remain focused to beat. They are kinda like Michigan State, as in they are viewed as "just another team".
Now, this isn't their fault. PSU didn't get into the Big 10 until waaaaay late. By then tOSU already had Michigan, Iowa had Minnesota, Indiana had Purdue.......There was just no rival for PSU and they didn't beat tOSU for us to care. In fact, my friends and I hate to lose, but losing to PSU never really bothered us b/c it didn't happen a lot and we used to think JoePa was a stand up guy. We got that last part wrong, but PSU still puts no scare into a Buckeye's eye.
Like I said, not PSU fan's fault at all. You all can hate who you want to hate. You just can't make a rivalry because you got in too late. I am pretty sure my first words were not mommy or daddy. They were probably "Michigan sucks". Tom, I guess you are right when you said PSU gets no respect. (Notice I said Tom and right but not Tom Wright, ha ha, I amuse myself).
