Nobody hates the Hawkeyes. Why would anyone hate our team?

Yes Virginia, someone does hate the Hawkeyes. There are a variety of reasons why, but the Iowa Hawkeyes are hated by their Big Ten rivals.

Can you really blame them? If a team had cost your Hawkeyes the Big Ten title a few times or a national title (wait a minute, here's another article!), would you be filled with love in your heart for them?

Let's be real here, football is a passionate game. The SEC is not the only place in the nation where teams just don't like each other.

I'm not saying it's a violent thing, nor even an uncivilized thing. It's not like you go around smashing car windows because they have a Michigan sticker on their bumper.

It's definitely not a destroy-things-kind-of hatred. Just not fuzzy wuzzy is all.

If you meet fans from the teams Iowa plays regularly who say they really don't dislike Iowa or they think Iowa is a great program, it usually means they beat you regularly. Which means you should hate them.

Follow me through the next few screens and learn the six reasons the rest of the Big Ten hates the Iowa Hawkeyes.
