Mail call!

It's mailbag time here at BS. Just wanted to share a couple because they're awesome.

First up, Matt from Des Moines, Iowa checks in (good to see they have Internet in Iowa now).

I'm an '07 grad living and working in Des Moines. Being continuously surrounded by iowa fans makes me feel like each day I'm reliving the scene from 'Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade" where the Jones boys sneak into the Nazi rally and Sr. says to Jr. "We're strangers in an unholy land."

Seriously, one of the most unknown things about the Big Ten is how freaking arrogant and aggressive most iowa fans are. They are constantly out to put down anyone from any other school. They act like they have this amazing football team, when really they have Kirk Ferentz getting paid millions of dollars to manage a work-release program for the local jail. I can't stand it.

Charlie Weis eats babies. Go Boilers!

You're right, I never really thought about that. It's cute that Iowa fans think their team is good. It's also telling that nobody outside of Iowa is aware of this and the reason, of course, is that everyone outside of Iowa realizes Iowa isn't a football powerhouse. Oh, and Matt, Charlie Weis eats babies? Seriously? Come on, everyone knows... Charlie Weis eats everything.

Next up is Kristin who writes:

Please tell me someone somewhere has called for the end of the "Shout" tradition between the 3rd and 4th quarters. You know, the time when very rarely is there anything to shout about? Just offering that up as a topic of discussion. I literally leave the stands every game near the end of the third just so I don't have to endure the horror that is "Shout". Maybe no one else is quite as passionate about it. But while we are talking change I can hope for it's demise.

So we're not the only ones complaining about Shout. Hear that, Ross-Ade music people?

the song "shout" is a buffalo bills thing anyways, there is a specific version of the song which was played constantly during the Jim Kelly era in western NY...Purdue copying this is incredibly weak and irritates me.

+1. Shout is weak. Copying Shout is double weak.

"one of the most unknown things about the Big Ten is how freaking arrogant and aggressive most iowa fans are."

I experienced that first hand when I went to Iowa City in 2004 and I'll never forget it. I've been to just about every Big Ten stadium except Minnesota and Michigan and no one comes close to Iowa with respect to agression. They are all about screaming in your face and picking fights. Its unreal. Just walking down the street minding your business and you become a target. kboiler and Raynman92 from GBI will tell you the same thing, they were there too.

I'm pretty sure Purdue isn't copying the Buffalo Bills. That song has been used in many sporting venues and, while I don't want to necessarily defend it, saying Purdue is "stealing" it from the Bills is similar to when PSU fans and bloggers claimed Purdue and other schools were "copying" Penn State's "white out."

Copying or not, it stinks.
