The topic is gear from other schools worn by students on your campus. Iowa State players, understandably, vote thumbs down on this.

ISU linebacker A.J. Klein talks about seeing other schools' colors worn by students on the Iowa State campus. He doesn't like it.

ISU LB Jake Knott believes the culture on the ISU campus has come a long way. He sees fewer colors from other schools worn by ISU students.

“Especially when you see someone in an Iowa shirt at Iowa State,” ISU noseguard Jake McDonough said. “It’s kind of like one of those, ‘Really? C’mon, you can’t be wearing that shirt around here.’

“It just kind of gets under our skin a little bit and kind of brings that rivalry up even more.”

Free safety Jacques Washington is from Owasso, Okla., but, yes, any black and gold on the ISU campus catches his eye.

“People have their own freedom, but . . .” he said, “if you’re going to wear an Iowa shirt, I say go to Iowa. It does irritate me and it makes me wonder, are people at Iowa wearing Iowa State gear?”
