    I try to be fair and balanced. Everyone has a bias, mine just happens to be for the good guys

    I've decided I'm a Hawkeye fan
    I wish I could kick Matt Dragon in the balls. In his Dragonballz.

    I know what you mean.

    But my two favorite pro football teams are the Bears and whoever is playing the Packers. Your rival is your rival. As a person who's attended Iowa, ISU, AND KU, the one that sticks in my craw is Okla St. I don't feel any special grudge towards Minny or Missouri wrestling teams, though. Good teams with good coaches.

    While damning the unnamed rest. I'm not the arbiter of class, and I can't use that to rationalize my rivalries.

    Oh, and Okla state is a good team with a good coach as well. Always have been. That's why they're always worthy rivals.

    If only the classy ones post here, maybe thats why we see so few Hawkeye fans on this site.

    You may have the chance to experience both.

    A straw man argument is an informal fallacy based on misrepresentation of an opponent's position. A straw man argument can be a successful rhetorical technique (that is, it may succeed in persuading people) but it carries little or no real evidential weight, because the opponent's actual argument has not been refuted.

    Hello everyone. I am new to this forum. I have been reading here for a couple weeks, and I figured I might try my hand at this.

    I would much rather have the gophers lose to ISU than Iowa. The reasoning is that ISU is in the Big 12, and Iowa is in the Big Ten. ISU can't keep the gophers from winning a conference title, however Iowa can.
