Clayborn’s words fire up at least one Cyclone

Standout Iowa defensive end Adrian Clayborn’s “We are the only team in the state, as far as I know” comment finally found its way into the Iowa State locker room.

And Cyclones defensive end Rashawn Parker wasn’t too happy with the remark.

“It upset me,” Parker said. “It’s like a slap in the face. As you could expect, someone’s posted it in the locker room.”

While ISU quarterback Austen Arnaud believes Clayborn’s comment was likely taken out of context, it’s a safe bet that a good majority of Cyclones players will take it exactly as Parker took it — and use it as fuel for the annual in-state clash.

Iowa State and its questionable defense visits Kinnick Stadium to battle the veteran Hawkeyes on September 11.
