    I've officially

    become a die-hard football fan.

    I grew up in the 80's and 90's and never really loved McCarney, so football has always been way to pass the time until basketball.

    I realized today that as much as these games have affected me over the last 2 years, that football is as important to me as basketball now. I've loved the wins and the losses have been very tough to take.

    Maybe not a good thing :)

    Shucks!! Too bad! You had a chance to get away from the curse of being a Cyclone Football Fan, but you were lured into it anyway. Don't say I didn't warn you.

    I don't know......I've had as much fun as I've ever had at Jack Trice this year. :)

    My philsophy is that if the losses didn't sting so much, the wins wouldn't be as sweet. And there is no better feeling than that.

    Huh never thought of it that way. I know this is somewhat getting away from your topic but, I think this season is a success. Even if we don't make it to a bowl ISU teams of yesteryear would not have turned out doing as well as we have.

    Oh, me too. I've never been more confident that things are on the right track. Of course, days like today don't make you believe quite as much.

    Let's just put it this way, on Thanksgiving our family always goes around and says what they are thankful for. I used to always say my serious, real thing and then I would always be a smart *** and say something about how I was thankful football season was over. I won't be saying that this year.

    NOOO! Save yourself!

    In reality, glad to have you on board. I, for one, believe owa State needs every single fan it get. Even if said fan is new as a football fan, or one of the fans that complains every time, or whatever. ISU needs them all.

    However this season ends, is ISU in a better place than it was 5 years ago? My answer is yes, by far. The coaches are getting their players in, AND playing decent ball with the ones they have.

    Great point. You know? Whens the last time you saw Texas, Florida, Oklahoma, Nebraska, Ohio state, michigan, USC, etc. fans rush the field????

    They don't because every win to them is just "expected"

    Being at a place like ISU-- wins are just great. We get to celebrate bowl games and big wins. I've never thought of it like that. makes me glad to be a cyclone

    Make sure to buy a comfy jockstrap to protect all the kicks to the stones.

    Exactly right, I feel the same way and grew up in the same era. It started when ISU got "serious" about football and tried to grow on what Mac started. Now it's a passion. I kept taking breaks during the Plumbing Code update class to listen to the game, as bad as it was. I would have never done that 10 years ago.


    That rug really tied the room together, did it not dude?

    I've always felt the kicks to the stones, but in the past I expected the worse and hoped for the best. Now I expect wins, and the losses suck even more.

    That's not helping. The jock strap doesn't offer that protection. He need the cup for that.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!
