Iowa3We're bored, so why not browse around the Internet and see exactly who's supporting the other teams within the Big Ten. It's amazing what you can find online - or at a tailgate - or a dorm - or - at volleyball practice (video). Today we look at those who support the black and gold of the University of Iowa. It's not always pretty, but it can be. As is the case with any fan base, you'll find your share of the Good, the Bad and the Ugly. Truer words have never been spoken in and around Kinnick Stadium. Apparently.

First and foremost, the fans of eastern Iowa love their Hawkeyes. They'll pack 70,000 plus into Kinnick Stadium every single time the Hawks play at home no matter if they're 8-0 or 0-8. But it's what they do before and after the game that we're interested in seeing.....


They'll do their fair share of tailgating...

Handling the beverages of choice is a whole different story...Bad3

Longtime Hawkeye radio broadcaster Ed Podolak even got into the action until these photos surfaced, leading to him resigning his position in 2009. Whether he's handling the alcohol well or not is debatable...

PODOLAK

One thing we can all agree on - these two dudes are not handling anything well. Not the atmosphere, the weather or the alcohol. Not exactly a bro-hug, fellas. Hold me...

But don't fret, Buckeye Nation. All is not lost at a Hawkeye tailgate. From time to time you might run into, say, this......

And if you happen to wander into the dorms to take a break from all the pregame activities, then you may just run into her (I suggest losing the Wisconsin hat before knocking).....

Badgers

And watch out for her roommate. She's a little crazy, but apparently hates TSUN as much as we do.....

With all of that being said, there are definitely some land mines to dodge when visiting Iowa City for a Hawkeyes game. Buyer beware.....

When all is said and done, the Hawkeye Faithful realt have nothing to be ashamed of. They're spirited, passionate - and either drunk, sick or naked depending on exactly who you run into on game day. Oh, and strange...

But hey, at least they don't root (or play) for the Purdue Boilermakers.

PURDUE

When in doubt - head to girls' volleyball practice.....
