    Re: Bowl or Bust

    That's all true, the grumblings against Earl were loud from a lot of fans. I'm just in the camp that it takes a good number of years for a football coach to establish his own system with his own...
  2. Re: Just my 0.02 for all you CF'ers. Take it for what its worth!

    There you go again Stormin making our history worse than it is. 5-7 is 41.6% and our history is 45%. 6-7 actually puts us very close to our historical average so let's agree to get to a bowl game...

    Re: Bowl or Bust

    Big difference is Earl had been here only 3 years and even the most demanding fans should realize it takes 4-5 years for a coach to get in most of his own players, develop them and establish his...

    Re: Bowl or Bust

    Nobody is saying that winning football games is anywhere near as important as life and death or many other issues for that matter. But when you're playing in the big leagues and making more money in...
  5. Re: Just my 0.02 for all you CF'ers. Take it for what its worth!

    OK, as long as we can agree that the MVIAA (MVC) wasn't made up of a bunch of rum dums. It was started in 1907 as the 2nd oldest conference in the country behind the Big 10, and during its history...

    Re: The facts are the facts

    I'm not an avid wrestling fan or at least not since I was at ISU and we were winning national championships almost every year in the late 60's and early 70's. But I do follow it, especially when...
  7. Re: Just my 0.02 for all you CF'ers. Take it for what its worth!

    Come on now Stormin, I can't let you delete 35 years of Cyclone football in our overall winning percentage. You're discounting the original Missouri Valley years when the teams were made up mainly...
  8. Re: Just my 0.02 for all you CF'ers. Take it for what its worth!

    Let's not make ISU football history worse than it is. Like I said, our historical won-lost percentage is about 45% and the last two years have been among the worst years in our history. We got...
  9. Re: Just my 0.02 for all you CF'ers. Take it for what its worth!

    Not counting ties, historically ISU has won about 45% of its football games. Last fall was about 16%.
  10. Re: Just my 0.02 for all you CF'ers. Take it for what its worth!

    A little easier to take a kick in the nuts from the basketball team after all the fun of a 25 win season, a 2nd place conference finish, and another conference tourney title. Been very little fun on...

    Re: It's on Fred

    You make some good points but my ISU history goes back a lot farther than yours as I remember the good Earl Bruce teams and a lot of barren basketball years until Johnny had some success. But even...

    Re: It's on Fred

    Well said, and he did this taking over a program coming off 5 bad years and in terrible shape with players leaving in droves. What Fred has done in a short time is incredible. Yes we were upset in...

    Re: It's on Fred

    Hopefully this will enlighten some of the fans that think this year's team dogged it on D compared to last years team, and we even held UAB to 9 points below our defensive average. Some fans really...

    Re: It's on Fred

    We went 25-9, finished 2nd in the Big 12 and won the conference tourney this year. Even if our football history isn't as good as basketball, do you really want to compare that to what happened on...

    Re: It's on Fred

    And yet they scored a whopping 60 points on us. Maybe we could have played tougher and the players may have been overconfident, I know I was and I've watched the tourney for 50 years and should know...

    Re: It's on Fred

    I'll agree we didn't have a 25 year old senior with the mental toughness of Kane or a 4 year senior starter like Mel, that made last year's team special. BDJ was no Kane and I doubt there's a coach...

    Lol. Dyed makes more sense. No problem and I'm sure you've heard what happens when we assume, at least according to one of my old high school teachers.

    Actually they played better than George, Naz and Dustin. Maybe they should have died their hair too.

    Re: It's on Fred

    I can also say if even one of Niang or Naz's open looks drops in, we win, or if BDJ doesn't pout, we win, or if the fans and media hadn't celebrated after the ku win in KC so much and declared this a...
