    Blog on ISU fandom

    Why Not?: Just Another Work in Progress: All In & Proud (to be One)

    Let's just say, some girl I know wrote this, thought it an interesting take on ISU fandom. Curious to hear what others think.

    Your wife is a pretty good writer.

    This is exactly why I can't understand, even in a fit of anger, any Cyclone ever saying if such and such happens I will no longer support ISU's whatever program. If you are a Cyclone, it is part of you. I could probably do without my spleen more easily.

    If we pulled some penn state or smu shenanigans, I would at least cut back on cf to 1 hour a day.

    Good stuff!

    I'm a firm believer that simply being "a fan" means you likely don't experience quite the same highs or lows that you experience while riding the Cyclone Rollercoaster that you do if you are a Cyclone!

    Re: Blog on ISU fandom

    Very well written. It's an interesting thought. I do kind of feel that way too. It's kind of splitting hairs though, because I am sure a lot of us know die-hard cyclone "fans" who care just as much. They may not have experienced the same educational and day to day experiences, but they love the cyclones as much as anybody. This of course doesn't apply to you average tavern hawk fan. :)

    Purple hawks are the worst people in the world and should be burned at the stake.

    Re: Blog on ISU fandom

    I attended ISU for a semester does that count?

    That being said, if ISU doesn't win a national title this year I will cry until next year.

    Re: Blog on ISU fandom

    Good read.

    I remember during the height of the conference realignment armageddon there was a poll on CF asking if ISU were not in a BCS conference would you still be a fan? Probably my least favorite thread ever.

    Great piece, really enjoyed it.


    Hilton Coliseum was specifically built to hold in sound with a solid concrete structure, steel doors, and a crowd that sits just a few feet from the court. With a fan base that frequently ranks among the nations largest crowds, players from opposing teams, as well as Iowa State, have said that the floor has shaken due to the loudness of the crowd

    You are an alumnus of an institution if you've studied there, fyi. Also, thanks for being an ISU fan. We need every non-grad we can get.

    Great write up, and the shout out is appreciated!

    It explains how the connection is bigger for alums, without being arrogant about it.

    Re: Blog on ISU fandom

    I love it! All in -- didn't need to buy it cause I was already there. Great read. For those of us that are a little older -- just sub in Cave In, Thumbs Up, The Dallas Club. ISU is part of our DNA - it's how we are wired. The highs are that much higher because of the lows. God help the world if we make it to the top of the mountain...

    My dad graduated from there so I was born a good guy. I just didn't like spending as much time going to and from class as I spent in class so I went online. Online school was awesome.
