'At least they lost, too!': Social media reacts to embarrassing Iowa State performance

There’s a very easy way to get over a loss. And that’s by watching your rival bow out in an even more embarrassing fashion.

Just a day after Iowa lost to Auburn in the opening round of the 2023 NCAA Tournament, rival Iowa State turned in one of the worst tournament performances ever. While their defense was tough as usual, they legitimately could not score, losing to 11th-seeded Pittsburgh, 59-41.

Now, folks, it may be some heavy levels of coping to celebrate a rival’s loss after you just suffered your own, but that’s what the other side is doing, so why not participate?!

Iowa State looked lost on offense in this game, showing the same scoring struggles that they showed all season to this point.

It was a horrific weekend for Iowa teams. That meant a great opportunity to either laugh at each other or show solidarity. Whichever is your pleasure, here is a compilation of all the best social media reactions to Iowa State’s first-round loss to Pitt.
