    Why this fan wants a Win against Colorado

    Colorado's a bubble team for the tourney and a loss to us would not be good for them. I figure it would be sweet revenge after what they did to us on Feb. 19, 2000.
    That was when we played @ Colorado. We were 14-2, ranked #14 in the nation. Some guy named Jaquay Walls goes off for 42 points and we lose 102-90. And that of course was one of our 5 losses that season. Here's one fan who hopes we put a blemish on their record that they can always remember like I do from 11 years ago.

    This fan wants a win to send them packing to the Pac-12 with us protecting Hilton for the final match.

    This fan agrees with that fan.

    Re: Why this fan wants a Win against Colorado

    I want to see us win because that would be our 16th victory on the season, one more than McD ever gave us. It would also guarantee us at least a non-losing season in what feels like the first time in forever and a day. It might also put us in a better position for a CBI bid, should we choose to accept it. I personally think a NIT berth is out of the question.

    Didnt he win 16 in year one?


    I agree with all of these reasons, including because its a win, not a loss. 2 conference wins is ugly, so is 3 but its less ugly. 4 would almost not be ugly.


    Nothing to see here mods. Keep moving.

    Oh to hell with it.

    Just beat 'em. Let's send CU and NU packing with a losing streak to ISU that'll probably be on the books for a long time.

    This fan is aware that 3 wins is better than 2 wins, no matter who they are against.

    It would be nice to ruin NU and CU's chances at the tourney in consecutive games. Plus everything else that has been said here.

    2006-07 Iowa State Menís Basketball Season In Review
    First-year head coach Greg McDermott faced a daunting task as he entered his initial season as the mentor of the Cyclone basketball program...his predecessor, Wayne Morgan, was relieved of his duties a week after the 2005-06 season ended, leaving a sense of uncertainty of which players would be returning for the Cyclones...ISU had 13 scholarships allotted for the 2006-07 campaign, but after Morgan left, only five scholarship players were remaining, leaving McDermott and his staff in a giant hole as they moved to Ames...when the 2006-07 school year began, McDermott only had four scholarship players on his roster and he filled in many of the holes with signees in April, which is extremely late in the recruiting game...most preseason publications noticed the severe attrition within the ISU program, including the chore of replacing two 1,000-point scorers in Curtis Stinson and Will Blalock, who left with one year remaining to pursue life in professional basketball...ISU was picked to finish 11th in virtually every preseason Big 12 poll and a total rebuilding season looked to be in store...instead what ISU fans witnessed was a young team that played hard every night and never gave up until the final horn sounded...ISU ended the year tying for seventh in the Big 12, recording the same amount of conference wins it did the previous season, going 6-10...Iowa State (15-16, 6-10) began the season by winning its first six games, the ninth team in school history to win its first six contests

    Ironically enough, looking back on it I actually felt good going forward after that season. That wasn't a bad year all things considered. That good feeling evaporated pretty quickly.

    That seems eerily similar to this year...
