    Superstitions are rampant in college football - ESPN

    Kind of cool... Didn't realize he did this.

    It was kind of a cool article. It was fun hearing everyones superstitions. I know before every XC meet, I had banana pancakes in the morning. The weirdest one was the kid who did his warmups bare-footed, and the best one was Georgia Tech's Paul Johnson smokin' a stogie when no one else is at the stadium.


    Hilton Coliseum was specifically built to hold in sound with a solid concrete structure, steel doors, and a crowd that sits just a few feet from the court. With a fan base that frequently ranks among the nations largest crowds, players from opposing teams, as well as Iowa State, have said that the floor has shaken due to the loudness of the crowd

    Now we know who to blame if things don't go well

    "Arnaud, who led the Cyclones to a 28-21 upset of Texas last week, might actually be testing luck when he begins his pregame ritual. An old wives' tale claims you should always dress and undress with your right foot first for good luck. Arnaud, a senior from Ames, Iowa, does exactly the opposite."

    Part of this fanbase is like the parable of the blind men and the elephant.

    Who knew?
