    A rant about a few things

    I have a question and two things to say.

    First of all, we are not going to win a game this year. This is the worst college football I have ever seen. Even if you say we kill ourselves with turnovers, it doesn't matter. "But rah, we outgained UNI". I have to say that this probably happened mostly in the 4th quarter when the put in their backups

    Second, we are going to get dominated next week, I say 38-0. The worst part is what the band did at half. In case you missed it they brought out a cardboard thing that said 'Hawks' and blew it up. It was straight up dumb.

    I say the outlook for our future is not a for sure prominence. I don't care who we have in as head coach, how can you expect to get kids to want to come here?

    Finally, I have a question. Did they say that the stadium would be bowled in by next year's start? I thought I heard them say they would start after this year.

    Yes they will start to uild more luxury boxes for all the new corporations from the Iowa Hawkeye who fans cannot buy single game tickets any longer. I do not think the stadium capacity will reach 56,000.

    Another rant. Instead of Another Iowa State First Down, let's make it this week, and Another Iowa State Touchdown. Looks like the tailgating is starting to be the best thing on game day.


    The Hawkeye bust up assumed that we would be winning the game which of course we were not. How can we trail the two minor teams at half in our own stadium? Pathetic.

    Construction starts after this football season on restroom facilities and widening the concourses. The bowling in of the south end zone won't be done until at least fall of 2010. As for your other comments, UNI never had their back-ups in the game, and ISU had the yardage advantage the entire game not just at the tail end of the game. Think what you want, however few teams can overcome four turnovers in a game, without creating one.

    gonna take time people, stop thinking about abandoning ship...as far as iowa goes, i would say no, we probably won't beat them this year, but you NEVER know with this game...we've beaten them in years where we weren't very good before! I am pretty sure we lost to UCONN during the same season we beat iowa for example...

    We have season tickets and will never abandon. More like we are on a sub and submerging for awhile..

    LOL, totally agree! We all looked at each other and asked if they knew which week it was. I also had to laugh at the UNI band getting booed. For a second I thought we were transported to a strip club with the way their flag girls were dancing.

    That was a little strange. Loved the hall of Famers.

    Re: A rant about a few things

    The "It's another Iowa State first down" is a rip off of Kansas State. Seems we don't do anyhting original at the stadium.

    Did they play "Jump Around" this week?



    What ever happened to truth, justice and the American Way?

    Re: A rant about a few things

    Okay. We need more original ideas.

    New songs, new chants.

    Ressurect "All the Way to Lincoln Way" - bet the other teams do not use that one.

    Say the Hail,Mary before the game (uninitiated as we are a publuic institution). Then throw the Bomn on the first Play.

    Have Cy run onto the field, grab the ball and go in for a touchdown. Thenn chant, "You go, Cy. You're the Guy!"

    Wear all red jerseys again - we are aiming for bear.

    Change the Shoes.

    Bring back the face mask to make the tunnel longer.

    Land Gene in a helicopter before the game.

    Let the staff make a Slimfast commercial and show it beforwe the game on the big screen.

    Soak the field to slow everyone down.

    Change the Jump Around to the Smashdown WWE.

    Bring the real tornado siren to life when they go to hike the ball.

    Have a student dsteal the ref's penalty hankie.

    Have the band really crash their Enterprise into the Herkie sign

    Do not expect to win - we will then.

    Start the wave again with the hillside people rollinmg down the hill into the hawkeye fans.

    I recall seeing the scoreboard in the first half saying we had over 150 yards and they had 60. We normally move the ball alright inbetween the 30s. It's when we get on the brink of scoring position that we either get a penalty, turnover, or miss a FG.

    Not trying to sugarcoat our team, because this is bad. But moving the ball hasn't been a huge issue for us. I don't think we went 3 and out once yesterday.

    Re: A rant about a few things

    We did fumble a punt according to the tainted Mo Valley ref for a 0 and out.


    For those who do not know about Mo Valley refs, the refs from that conference in basketball are some real homers.
