Goes back to at least '52: https://www.thegazette.com/subject/...d-the-iowa-illinois-football-rivalry-20141114For a newbie-ish fan (2003), did we hate Iowa with a red hot passion before the Douche Pearl incident?
Crazy but true. If we root for Maryland, kiss a tie for first place good bye. Root for MSU and our seeding chances get messy. I’d rather Maryland win and MSU gets knocked out of a tie for second. But that’s me.Standings too complicated to get me to root for Iowa or MSU. Win out and what happens, happens.
