    500th Victory...

    Should we win the Pinstripe, it will be the program's 500th win... if you don't include the game Kansas won, then forfeited in 1980. I haven't heard a peep about it so I just thought I'd mention it.

    Current through 2009 - http://www.cyclones.com//pdf8/705991.pdf (On Page 26)

    Just another reason to bring home a win from the Pinstripe Bowl!

    Re: 500th Victory...

    Might want to mention that the pdf you linked is only through the 2009 season. Otherwise it is kind of confusing.

    Re: 500th Victory...

    I thought we were at 492 going into the season...? Which wouldn't include the Kansas ff... (I guess that can open up the "do forfeits count as wins for the other team or as non games, debate)

    I'd like it if it were a bowl win for 500, but I'd also like to know where we actually are in stats)

    It would be a nice milestone to surpass.

    On the other hand, it's kinda embarrassing and I hope the media doesn't pick up on it.

    The bowl release notes do state that it will be the 500th victory:

    IMO we should not dwell on how bad we were in the past but focus on our success today and moving forward. Embrace the suck and move on. Its what makes being a Cyclone today so much more special when looking at where weve come from.

    It is nice to hit milestones. However, this one seems like a bit like a tribute to the fact that we have a averaged less than 5 wins per season in our 100+ year history. I don't like that stat and am not sure I want to flaunt it.

    Well winning our 500th is better than not winning or 500th.


    It's all snark from here on out
