    Hampton mentioned in July???

    Yup on SportsCenter tonight. In their stupid 'Who's Now' bracket competition Stuart Scott mentioned that it could be the biggest upset of a #2 seed since... you know the rest.

    Re: Hampton mentioned in July???

    Yeah, that kind of infamy comes with a big upset like that. I'm over it, more or less, but I still think I'll have to change the channel every time I see Hampton's coach being bear-hugged by his players like that....

    What was the context? I take it some high-profile athlete got upset in that admittedly silly contrivance they have going on?

    Re: Hampton mentioned in July???

    I'm sorry. If it's an 8 over a 1 or a 7 over a 2, then we should be spared of hearing this again and it should be deferred to NW LA ST's upset over Iowa.

    Until another 15 drops a 2 or a 16 drops a 1...we will be referenced. Let's face it...we "crapped the bed" that game...no ands, ifs or buts.



    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.

    And we deserve every bit of the ridicule we receive for it.

    I think of how good the team did to get a two seed, not how poorly they did to **** it down their legs.

    Re: Hampton mentioned in July???

    At the time of that upset, I was a big time Cyclone fan managing an elevator in the town Hampton with quite a few Hawk fans working for me and as customers. Needless to say, it took quite some time before the little jabs began to subside and the comments like "the Cyclones couldn't even beat Hampton" referring to the towns high school team.

    And I agree tha we deserve all the negative publicity we are getting..

    Re: Hampton mentioned in July???

    You know, ever since last March I haven't heard too much about Hampton from Sqwak fans, and I don't even really bring up NW LA ST...

    Our team was nothing more than average by the time we got to the tourny. We were never the same after getting spanked by Texas that season.

    Yep, they overachieved all season and burnt themselves out trying to win the regular season conference and the quest for the NCAA #1 seed. I'm not saying they should have had lower expectations, but in a 20/20 hindsight thing they bought into the media hype about them being better than they really were and burnt themselves out trying to reach that expectation. I think if they had toned back just a bit and had received a #3 seed, they would have gone much further. But the way they were playing at the end of the year, maybe it's a blessing we didn't get the #1 seed. They were so "out" that we possibly could have been the first #1 to go down to a 16.

    What excuse making this is. If they were so "burnt" then the fault would clearly lay at the doorstep of the head coach. The bottom line is there is no way this game should have been lost.

    In the same way that fans take credit for when teams play well. If you're a fan, you are stuck with the results, good or bad.

    One of the top three most painful moments as a Cyclone (and sadly there are more occasions to choose from than I like to think about). Our first trip to a New Years Day Bowl or a Final Four will erase all of that!!!!

    I dunno, I was not all that upset. I was in shock for a while, but I never did expect that team to go far. It seems at that point in the season they were just mailing it in expecting a win.
