    Let's face the REAL truth

    Many of you are disgusting people who are acting like Hawkeye fans after 1 loss. If the season was only 3 games long, then you would have a valid concern. I was hoping that Cyclone fans on this site could keep a level head for once, and actually take time to try and understand the game. Instead, I'm surrounded by crybabies who think they are personally entitled to victories, and when they don't come, the run to Mommy and cry about it. (CF=Mommy) If you are taking this loss this hard, wait until you lose in real life. It's gonna hurt, and your weak minds will never recover.


    If you need a pacifier, I will gladly give you one.

    Sorry, but my screen says the sky is falling. So while I read your post, I plugged my ears and screamed uncontrollably.

    If you ask the basketball analysts outside the state of Iowa I think you would be surprised to hear their responses. Iowa was pegged as a preseason top 5 team by one ESPN analyst and is ranked in the vast, vast majority of preseason top 25 polls

    Re: Let's face the REAL truth

    I love how "taking the loss this hard" == ******** on a Cyclone message board. People have every right to complain about the performance of the team last night. It was terrible. Whether it was the 2nd game of the season or the 20th, it was a terrible performance.

    Should people give up on the team or CFH after 2 games? NO! But they are certainly entitled to complain about last night's performance. It was horrible.

    I agree here. No one is giving up on the team, but it's okay to be ****** off at what we saw last night. That was almost unwacthable.

    Agreed. We feel we have a better team than last year. We beat Drake by what, 40 or 50 last year? We had no business losing that game, and we as a fanbase shouldn't be okay with losing a game like that. If this program is moving forward and growing into what we all hope it will be, games like this can't happen.

    This happens on message boards across the nation. It's a combination of human nature and being a fan. And I realize that you probably have never "lost in real life" and that you have a supremely strong mind, but cut us simple peasant folk a break. It's a freakin message board, don't take it so seriously.

    Re:Let's face the REAL truth

    Get off your soapbox Yoda. You're just as bad as those ready to jump off the cliff. Losing to Drake is unacceptable. Were a Big 12 school that just got beat by a Missouri Valley school. If you didn't expect people to be upset by the loss you're a fool. I agree the jury isn't out on this team. We know there much more talented than they showed last night. The thing that ****** me off the most was the lack of defense and and effort. Seeing guys watch Drake rebound the ball and seeing all the simple screens and give and goes work like we were a 6th grade team was unbelievable frustrating. The people that jump off the cliff after a loss like this care very much and are a little too emotionally involved and those two things are good for our school.

    Like it or not CycloneYoda has a point. Some of the reaction to last night's loss was very Hawkeye'sih.

    It's a long season.
