It could be said there are no more devoted fan than those of football.  But your devotion may be eclipsed by a fan of the University of Iowa Hawkeyes, who is planning to build a home modeled after the team's football stadium and not everyone is thrilled about the news.  Neighbors in the town of Decorah have filed a lawsuit asking for a judge to block construction of the home and repeal the city's building permit for it. The couple who want to build their home to resemble Kinnick stadium have submitted plans to build a 7,500 sq ft home that includes stadium seating, stadium-style restrooms, pressbox, a courtyard and several bedrooms.  Most neighbors worried the home would become a party house and create traffic and safety issues and have argued it doesn't fir the code of the neighborhood.  The couple received their permit after the city deemed the plans had met all of the guidelines. No word when the lawsuit will hit the courtroom.
