    Let's stay positive...

    You can do as much as you think you can,
    But you’ll never accomplish more;

    If you’re afraid of yourself, young man,
    There’s little for you in store.

    For failure comes from the inside first,
    It’s there if we only knew it,

    And you can win, though you face the worst,
    If you feel that you’re going to do it.

    -Edgar A. Guest



    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.

    Let's just have some fun at the game guys. We will be lucky to win 1 or 2 games this year. No doubt about that, but we can definately still have fun and support the team.

    Although we have looked bad this year,
    And on the surface our outlook seems bleak.

    With every tackle, yard, and cheer,
    This weekend we realize we're not so weak.

    We know that we can beat the Hawks,
    We can beat them good and strong.

    And then a year without their talk,
    Because again they were wrong!

    Re: Let's stay positive...

    or try this one....

    Cyclones at the Jack (a Casey at the Bat spin-off)

    Well it looked extremely rocky for the Cyclone gang that day,
    The record was 0-2, with but a week til the Hawks they'd play

    But when Douglas stole a credit card, and Bowman did the same,
    A smile tugged the lips of every Cyclone at the game.

    A going to the 4th, the scoreboard read a 10-10 tie,
    And Captain Kirk looked as if he might gouge out an eye.

    Then Meyer hit Blythe deep and to the wonderment of all,
    Their whipping boy named Shaggy kicked the cover off the ball!

    And when the horn had sounded and they saw what had occurred,
    There was Chizik on their shoulders, and Herkey was a sad sad bird.

    For the Cyclones,
    The mighty Cyclones...had Beat Iowa!

    I may be an complete ignoramous for this, but I really do think we are going to win this game. I just have this sense that it is going to turn around. Iowa ain't that good, if we come out and play mistake free, force them to make a couple of mistakes, and keep from stepping on our dicks, there is no reason we can't win.

    You are not. I am with you! I went to ISU from 83-87 and there has never been an ISU / iowa game that I thought we would lose...this game is no different!

    I'm with you too! If I thought we were going to lose then what would be the point in caring? But I always care!

    Re: Let's stay positive...

    For some reason, I have a refreshing level of confidence about this game. I had the same feeling in 2005, as well, even when Iowa was ranked #8. Of course, I had the same feeling last year and we lost, but that game essentially went down to Mac's famous 4th Down call with a couple minutes left.

    Re: Let's stay positive...

    You guys are all over this one.....i too think we have a shot at victory....Iowa/Iowast game really is a fierce battle and a break here or there will determine the winner.

    Let's hope meyer only hits our guys, bass runs over theirs, blythe is brought back from the dead, bowen goes ballistic, bell records two picks returning one to the house and culbertsons able to kick one through the uprights, all this without having sandvig fumble and we will win this game!!!!

    GO CLONES - give me a year of silence....PLEASE!!!!!

    Year of silence? What Sqwak fans are YOU hanging around? As soon as the clock reads 0:00 w/ an ISU victory I'll start hearing the excuses!

    Go 'Clones!!!

    I think you're both nuts. I don't see anyway that we win this game. Not after the first two games.

    Now - the good part. I didn't think we stood a change in 2005 either....

    23-3

    Then again, I'm not exactly impressed by what Iowa's done all season either. They didn't exactly lay it on to a lesser MAC opponent in NIU, and talk to a knowledgeable Hawkeye fan (if you can actually find one) and they'll tell you they weren't exactly impressed with the "beating" that they laid on the 'cuse. Well, at least we'll know where both teams stand by the end of Saturday.

    I said the same thing before the UNI game.....and...well....

    But, fortunately, I'm an optimist to a level I have never seen matched, so I also think we'll beat Iowa. Let's just keep repeating the score 23-3 in our heads and our mental energy will make it happen! GO CYCLONES!

    If we had some senior leadership that could take it upon themselves to rally the team then I think we would have a chance. We don't have that.
