RAGBRAI College Spirit Jersey Day

Coralville is anxious to welcome you and celebrate this new annual tradition.  We encourage all riders to pack and wear your favorite school jersey as you travel from the land of the Pioneers (Grinnell College) to the home of the Hawkeyes. Even you Cyclone fans will be welcomed with open arms at the end of this 74-mile day!  🙂

Go Hawks!

that is one of the new makes the university released last fall, the university’s get a cut of those from roylaties/rights. Primal (?) would get in hugh trouble for printing those without going through the intellectual properties office.

Go Big Red!!

 

 

 

I realize that this forum has a bunch of Big 10 fans, and my bride loves Big Blue, but the greatest teams and best fans in the nation are from the SEC and have been for years. 

Since 1998
SEC  – 7 championships and the last 5 in a row. (one shared).
Big 10 -1
Big 12 – 2
Pac 10 – 2 (one shared)
ACC/BE – 2

SFC JKL2-  I couldn’t agree more…enough with the “trophy” games.  Now there are some old rivalries that come to mind across the nation, more recognition for those just for the longevity of match-ups…
pmac- can’t argue with the SEC record…but best fans??  Well I guess “we” all have the best fans, depends on what school you are cheering on!

You’re right about the fans, 1allen.  Every school always has the best fans and their 2 big rivals always have the worst fans!

Every school always has the best fans

Judging from levels of violence, the SEC has plenty of crappy fans.  I will say at the pro level, nothing compares with Packer fans.  I thinks it’s actually a religion there.  You have to experience it to believe it.  There really is no comparison.
