    Wow - Exciting Games Today - Not

    Is it worth the gas and cold to see Columbia and or Texas Southern?

    So you go to see the opposing teams?


    Don't confuse hope for a plan.

    I'll be going out in the cold and snow to watch them. Why? Because I'm a Cyclone fan and want to go support my school/team.

    You live in Iowa. It snows every year. Suck it up.

    Gosh - I thought I was a Cyclone fan but also a fan of good basketball not blow outs - unless it is against Iowa or Big 12 teams.

    Exactly. Deal with it.

    Personally, I love the snow, the cold, and the wind. To me, it's wonderful outside...

    ...I should really live in Canada

    It is not about the cold, I am an ice fisherman and I walk 3 miles every day of the year. It is about good basketball.

    What makes you think it will not be good basketball? Personally, any Cyclone blowout is better basketball than struggling to beat a bad team.

    Personally, I just want to see my team play. I don't care if they are playing the local high school team or the NBA Champs. I enjoy watching Iowa State play.

    Re: Wow - Exciting Games Today - Not

    I just love it when somebody pulls out the "...Not!" lines. I was about 10 when that phrase was popular and knew how frickin stupid it was at that time. Nearly 20 years later, it is still just as awesome.

    I'm confused. You want to see blowouts against Iowa and Big 12 teams--teams more likely to be at the same talent level as ISU--but not against other teams?

    By the way, regarding your subject line: The '90s called. They want their lingo back.

    The hilarity of the parking at Hilton alone will be worth the drive. Once that first flake hit, the yellow lines no longer mean anything.
