Before the 2012 Iowa game, I bumped into a few Hawkeye fans downtown after the premiere of the Billy Taylor movie on Friday night. I gave them my typical “good luck” and chatted for a little bit. They were good guys. It got me to thinking about where, today, we view Iowa as a rival and vice versa.
Disclaimers: everyone has the personal little reasons why we hate/tolerate/like another team. I tried to take a wide swipe about the feelings in general.
The Feedback appreciated. Tweaks:
November 19, 2012: Added Maryland and Rutgers
March 16, 2013: Updated after Tom Crean’s a-hole move, berating U-M assistant Jeff Meyer following Indiana’s win in the season finale at Crisler. Moved IU from Green to Yellow on U-M View. While no change on the index, updated the ever twitchy MSU and Notre Dame note.
