Colin Cowherd is mocking Iowa — again.

The FOX Sports personality memorably called the Hawkeyes the “fake ID” of college football. Cowherd also mocked Iowa’s nonconference schedule. When the Hawkeyes lost to North Dakota State last year, Cowherd said that “Iowa is a poser.”

After Iowa lost to Michigan State 17-10 Saturday night, Cowherd was back at it.

“Georgia and that defense look really good. As for Iowa …” Cowherd tweeted.

After being called out for his Iowa hate, Cowherd responded: “yea, poking that metropolis Iowa really drives a massive number.”

At this year’s Big Ten Media Days in Chicago, broadcaster Joel Klatt addressed Cowherd’s strange Iowa fascination. As reported by Land of 10’s Scott Dochterman: “I hear Colin. I listen to Colin almost every day when I can,” Klatt said. “In particular my ears perk up whenever he talks about college football, whichever team.

“But there’s always like this level of vitriol for Iowa that was saved for Iowa. I’m always like, ‘That’s so peculiar.’ I don’t understand. I know in the radio business that can be good radio, and if that’s what he believes then more power to him.

“But then it just caught me right on the couch when I was sitting there on the show. He starts talking about C.J. [Beathard] and … George Kittle. He starts talking about these guys and I’m like, ‘Hold on. You bashed them for three years.’ So really the genesis was none of that was planned. It was all spur of the moment and impromptu right there. I just thought to myself, ‘I’ve got to call this guy out. You can’t all of the sudden praise an NFL team for drafting the same players that you were calling ‘college football’s fake ID.’ ”
