    Meltdown

    I just got back from IC, but some of you guys are in total meltdown mode and need to calm down. Did anyone seriously think ISU was going to beat Iowa today? The #9 ranked team in the country? On the road? In a stadium where ISU hasn't won in 8 years? Seriously? I can't imagine how this board looked during the game.

    Yeah, ISU looked like **** today. It has happened before and it will happen again. The ultimate goal of a bowl game is still very much alive. I remember something similar happening with Iowa last year. ISU and CPR are not going to give up on this season and start building for the future. ISU is building for NOW. Support AA, support the defense, and move on.

    Beat K-State.

    Re: Meltdown

    Honestly, considering the score, this is nowhere near a meltdown :) , thankfully.

    Re: Meltdown

    I think a lot of people didn't think we'd win but they thought we'd be more competitive, cover the spread, make it close, etc.
    I knew the team was un-glueing when Sims and L.Johnson got into the shoving match with each other.

    Exactly... i didnt think we'd win. But iowa played a GREAT game, and we played an awful one.

    Agreed with lindency though.. this isnt a meltdown by any means. If the game vs KSU looks like this, then you'll get your meltdown.

    I don't think anyone expected to win, but I think most of us expected the team to show up and try.

    Re: Meltdown

    Have to be honest I really thought we would be able to put up some sort of a fight ! Yes Iowa is a good team this year .But I still have faith in my cyclones and my family and I will be in Kansas City to cheer them on next weekend !

    Re: Meltdown

    Maybe my mind is keeping me from remembering the game so clearly but it seemed to me that the first half was the worst half of Cyclone football that I've ever seen... and I've seen some bad games in my time! I suppose when you look at the score it doesn't look so bad historically. This is not an Iowa team that is that good in my opinion. EIU lost today 37-7 if anyone noticed .... and they didn't play Alabama or even a D1 school. I liked the way that Kansas turned things around this week. Hopefully ISU can do it again like they did last year - and like Iowa did in 2005.

    It was bad, but just based off recent memory Okie State last year was worse. People are over blowing this IMO. ISU looked like **** against Iowa, Okie State, and A&M last year and still went to a bowl.

    We are young and have no depth, expect to get occasionally blown out.

    1st half of the UNLV game in 2008 is easily the worst.

    We actually made adjustments in the 2nd quarter for our 3rd offensive possession. By then the defense had played the better part of a half. We just do not have the horses on the line to keep up with Iowa without a little help from them.

    Re: Meltdown

    If we get a "Bring Chizik Back" thread, then we have made big-time meltdown status.

    I don't care if we lose by 100 to UNI ... I don't want Chizik back.

    Me, either. We won that trade hands-down.

    But this is CF, and somebody will actually do it. Not after this one, but after some loss this year (assuming that we lose again, like almost everyone else in the country does). Just wait for it. It will be epic.

    I didn't think they would win, but honestly, I thought they would play better and look better. That was the disappointing part.

    Everyone is entitled to their own opinion - you have yours, and I happen to think that we will NEVER grow our fan base and financial support unless we win our share in FB against the Hawks. We have to garner more fans within the state, and neutral Iowans will side with the perennial winner.
    Our bad loss today cannot be overblown - it hurts ISU a lot. It diminishes our program.
