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.
