Thread: Biggest Homer

  1. #1

    Default Biggest Homer

    I'm not starting a poll on this, someone else can do so later. I'd just like to hear people's opinions on their top three homers. Here are mine.

    1. KR - no one else is even close. When people accuse KR of homerism, his standard reply is to lash out at Iowa fans for some reason. It's almost a knee-jerk reply at this point, out of the blue and not in response to anything specific.

    2. Badcat - a distant second to KR, but I don't know whether I've ever heard him say anything good about a wrestler who doesn't wear the blue and white. I'm not sure he follows the college sport very well other than to know who is wrestling PSU.

    3. Zapp - One of the funniest posters on TWT, but deeply drinking the Hawkeye Koolaid.

    A year ago I would have picked Chop and Herkey as the top two, but Iowa's down season has shown me that they actually have a very realistic point of view about their team and can admit when certain individuals are overmatched. In addition, neither one of them bitch about stall calls, which is a signature trait of a homer. If Chop could learn the difference between Logan and Hunter Stieber then he might even move up another notch. Come on Chop. get a freaking grip on your midwest self.

    Hey they are brothers correct? I don't know what the hell I was doing but for some reason I got them mixed up. I like the your post and agree with KR as the clear cut leader as well.

    It's KR. It's not close.

    KR WTF Herkey 3 years ago.

    It's KR but he should be a tad embarrassed that his handle says nothing about his loyalty to his team. If it did it would be like NittanyLionJockstrapSniffer or PSUSSY or something cool like that. Just kidding KR. I still think Herkey, Zapp and Chop make top 10 in any poll. I want to call VAIS a homer but I don't even know who he follows. He prefers to just pop in and out and tell me how wrong I am all the time, which is usually true. And don't blame Chop for getting Stiebers mixed up because I still get Little Thorn and Ness mixed up bc of the weights their older siblings wrestled and I'll never get the Dardanes figured out. I still confuse my 3 boys names here in my own house.

    I could think of lots of other titles for this thread. I'd have to exclude Zapp from the list though. His pick of Evans winning the whole thing will prove to be clairvoyant.

    Youll need a dictionary for that one Kr.

    BTW, if anyone takes the #1Homer tag off my avatar I'm taking it out on VA when I see him at Nationals. I've grown to love the title.

    I'm sure you know that VAIS is an Iowa fan (following Va Tech as a local favorite as well ). But he is the most objective Iowa fan I've come across. I also agree that Herkey has morphed a bit over the past few years. I think not having an automatic lock on the title has played in a role in that process.

    I think I'm among the least homer-ic on here. I try to not let my loyalties cloud my judgment, which is partially why I'm hated on hawkeye report.

    Also, KobePM has to be at least mentioned for his love of American University even though he hasn't posted since he told us he was Josh Glenn.

    It's rumored that Herkey actually sleeps in black and yellow mascot pajamas. I don't think he loses the title anytime soon.
