    Every time

    We ask for the national spotlight, this is what happens:

    A&M -'00 Huge loss at home on ABC
    OU - '02 Huge loss on the road on ABC
    Mizzou - '04
    KU - '05
    Utah - '10
    Texas - '11

    We can never establish any legitimacy as a program, because we lay eggs on the biggest stage. We can't complain about ISU being slighted when they do this to themselves over and over again. Such a perfect setting - crowd that was ready and what are they treated to???? A bunch of turnovers and really inexcusable penalties and what not. Beyond frustrated right now. 30 years of following ISU is enough to turn anyone into a natural born pessimist.

    Its quite alright for me, I've become accustomed to such a thing because of the pro sports teams I follow. Nothing new to me...

    At least the Celtics and Red Sox have been good the past decade.

    But back to ISU laying eggs everytime it is there tun to step up... we're getting closer as a team, we're there as a fan base, but definitely closer as a team.

    Re: Every time

    Utah last year was a big national spotlight? The game was on FCS. And they showed up for NU pretty good last year. By definition ISU is only in the national spotlight when they are playing a tough opponent so the record isn't going to be good, but they do show up occasionally.

    This was my first thought tonight. Another embarrassing blowout in the national spotlight.

    Utah was right after beating Texas last year I believe, we had the chance to prove we weren't a fluke.

    Re: Every time

    Tonight was our night to get the college football world's attention. To take the next step. To crack the Top 25. Instead, we took a step back. Very disappointing to see the team look so unprepared and undisciplined. On top of that, all the injuries could make for a long rest of the season.

    This program has had so many opportunities to gain credibility over the years. Do you ever wonder why ISU is always talked about as being left out in the realignment mess? It is because of debacles like this. This game was hyped for 2 weeks. The fan base was primed and ready ----- and ----- another disastrous blowout loss.

    36-years for me. You're forgetting:

    - Ok State, 1976
    - Iowa '77
    - NC State, Peach Bowl '77
    - TX A&M '78. Bluebonnet Bowl '78
    - OU '81

    Etc, etc, etc.

    We're Iowa State and we're always gonna be one of the bottom 15 Div 1 programs in history of college football. And the way "money ball" is being played in Div 1 that's why we're gonna stay that way. But I still love my 'Clones; but I feel like Charlie Brown after all these years.

    One day we'll get over the hump.

    It was after beating Texas Tech, another FCS game.

    I'm with ya. Maybe I've just always been a moron who believed someday just once ISU would be able to legitimately compete instead of being a bottom feeder. You'd think after 30 years I would have learned my lesson. Just to add to the pain, we both left out the loss to Alabama in the Independence Bowl after outplaying them all night long.

    To be honest though this really wasn't a game in the national spotlight. This was an evening game on FX when the rest of the nation was watching the ABC game with Wisconsin and Nebraska. Also, what happened with our game is what pretty much everyone across the nation thought would happen (even though it shouldn't have happened that way).
