Iowa and Iowa State police talk trash on Twitter before rivalry game

Wednesday September 10th, 2014

Iowa State plays Iowa this weekend. This is a big deal in The Hawkeye State (or The Cylone State; we're not picking sides), so the schools' campus police departments decided to talk a little trash.

Iowa State responded with a truly unassailable argument. Yeah, well we've got more followers than you:

Maybe Iowa students are just smart enough to keep the police at an arm's length.
