    ??? Exceptionally good that day? Because that has been going on for much longer than 2005. I was not in town for the game that day.

    Fans that constantly get their hopes up too much after every win only to have them crushed and brought down to reality and kicked in the junk after the next loss

    I put in a blurb about our tailgating.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Sweet Caroline is the gayest thing about ISU sports. If any other school in the nation did this, you would laugh at how gay that is.

    True, but it is still unique to ISU. I'm personally getting tired of the fans that want to turn our game day into something "x school" does. Who cares what other fans think. Most likely the majority of them would make fun if we copied them far more than they do for now. And lets face it, we are competing schools, they are going to make fun of us no matter what, just like we will them.

    Let's be ISU and lets be proud of the traditions we have.

    Boy some people will ***** about anything. It's something fun that gets the crowd involved, and we only do it when we have a lead.

    Things I love:
    -Tailgating
    -The marching band (proud alum)
    -Jack Trice (the man especially, but also the stadium)
    -Paul Rhoads
    -Loyal Sons Forever True
