    Does anyone have a photo or video of what they did? A lot of tweets and Facebook posts saying they did something very offensive about Iowans and farmers. That's why they panned the camera away and many Iowa boos.

    They had a cow running around with their tree, and made a giant farmer head shape with a frowny face.

    Lol. Beating the piss out of Iowa wasn't enough. They had to rub it in at halftime as well.

    That's it? Man, everyone must be a bit extra edgy because of the game.

    They made low-hanging fruit jokes about cows and the supposed dating website "farmersonly.com". It was apparently very disrespectful and tasteless.

    That's Stanford's band though. They have a history of poor antics.

    Marc Morehouse just tweeted a link. Evidently they were playing the farmersonly.com jingle and the band made the shape of a heart and arrow, complete with someone in a cow costume running around the field.

    That's actually kind of funny. We should probably just be happy they didn't make a giant penis to bang the cow.

    I don't think most fans are that worked up about it but imagine if the shoe was on the other foot and the Iowa band tried to make fun of a stereotype about Stanford. If the Iowa band tried to mock how most Stanford home games include a bunch of Asian kids reading text books in the stands, do you think Stanford fans would be hyper sensitive about that? What Stanford stereotypes could our band make fun of that wouldn't result in a bunch of outrage?

    i guess as an iowa fan, i am more irritated about the performance of the football team than the performance of the stanford band.

    but in the spirit of trolling, it's gonna be hilarious when california finally runs out of water

    in this day and age of craziness that is not very smart - stanford has been doing this sort of thing for years and some day something bad will happen because of it. Its your standard elite 'we are better than you' BS that well sooner or later set some crazy off.

    If Stanford's goal is to convince everyone that there band is highly medicated, then consider that goal achieved.

    Guess what, after awhile acting incredibly stupid all the time, just becomes annoying, and well....stupid

    What's funny is California might have more farms and produce more food than Iowa. Dumbest nerds on the planet.

    Guess they didn't know the farmer jokes went out of style when farmland broke the $10,000 an acre barrier.

    Let me guess, 90% of them think obama has a clue and clinton is honest.

    A friend of mine who was at the game was extremely pissed off about it. He's a low-key guy and not at all easily offended. Sounds to me like the Stanford "band" was way out of line and extremely disrespectful.

    Sounds to me like Stanford needs to get its act together and provide some oversight of its "band" or just refuse to let them embarrass themselves on a football field again. Sounds like a pretty pathetic lack of institutional control to me. I'd expect better from Stanford, but maybe my expectations for them were too high.

    Making generalizations about the school based on its geographic state. Which seems rather close minded and ignorant for a bunch of proclaimed smart kids.

    Didnt KState do some sort of offensive show about Kansas. These bands (rather band leaders) are pushing it

    I don't think it was intentional though. The were doing a tribute to Star Trek but the Enterprise looked like a huge D.

    Stanford band's actions are intended to be disrespectful. School should be ashamed.

    The stanford band had a big stage and they used it for that?

    The funny thing with these left wing nut jobs, they think freedom of speech is great till they get their feelings hurt. Political correctness has gone too far but I have a feeling that America is going to be great again.

    Just browsing here, but for the record, Furd is not really a liberal university. Their band is an equal opportunity offender.

    Stanford should be embarrassed but I doubt they were. It's just the mentality of them.

    Maybe not compared to Berkeley.

    Their antics seem a little juvenile. Bet their school, alumni and parents are proud.

    I can guarantee if those fricking nut jobs piss in a cup after their performance, half or more would have something illicit in their blood stream. Yes the Iowa faithful were not impressed. Wonder what those tofu eating douche bags would eat if we didn't grow soybeans.

    To make matters worse we really laid a turd on he field today. Will be a long trip home on Sunday.

    Personally I think the KSU thing was very intentional. Just google it and watch the video if you haven't already.

    Not everyone is. It was funny. It just hurt worse because Iowa played so badly the first half. Obviously the band had that ready to go long before the game started. I thought it was funny, but it was bad timing -- but only because Iowa laid an egg on the field. In other words ... Iowa has no one to blame but themselves for playing so poorly.

    As someone who has called Berkeley home, Stanford is much more conservative. VERY conservative, in fact. But aside from anything political, Stanford's band has always been confrontational. It's a thing out west to be that way. That's why everyone in the East Bay LOVES the famous "Stanford Band Play." :)

    It's just normal college hi jinx, having fun. The half time performance would have been funny to everyone if it had been Iowa up 35-0 at halftime. The Stanford band was the least of Iowa's problems. Christian McCafferey, on the other hand ... WOW

    I chuckled a few times at the cow. That's their thing, they do it to everyone. Does it make it right? Probably not, but it's harmless
