Why the Gophers are CLEARLY SUPERIOR to iowa

There is a big reason why I did not capitalize iowa.

Minnesota's athletic program:

women’s cross country two time defending big ten champs

men’s cross county ranked #14; iowa not ranked

baseball team actually finished a half game ahead of iowa—the only team we were ahead of in the conference

men’s basketball finished ahead of iowa last year

iowa doesn’t even have a men’s golf team  Correction: Minnesota's men's golf team finished 2nd in the big ten while iowa finished second to last

iowa men’s gymnastics finished dead last in the conference

Gophers won the big ten in women’s soccer

men’s swimming finished 3rd in the big ten—iowa finished second to last

women’s swimming won the big ten last year, iowa in 9th place

women’s rowing: Minnesota 4th, iowa 6th

volleyball: Gophers 2nd in big ten and nationally ranked; iowa in 9th place

women’s track and field: big ten champs, iowa 5th place

men’s track and field: Gophers fifth place finish; iowa 8th

Minnesota men's and women's hockey teams are national powerhouses.  iowans can't even skate so there aren't any hockey teams.

So iowa fans may say who cares, right? Of course they would. Football is quite literally the only thing they have anything to boast about. Minnesota has one of the best athletic programs in the entire country.  So when someone says iowa sucks--they are telling the truth.
