    Leaving 5 minutes early

    Ok leaving at half time or in the beganning of the 4th quarter is one thing (I don't agree with doing it, but you could atleast make arguments like "I told the baby sitter I'd be home by...)

    But leaving with 1:45 left on the clock??? I don't care if we no longer had a chance to win, we just played a H*** Of a game against a ranked oppent that was supposed to destroy us!!! Stay and cheer your team off of the field, they earned it. You're not going to save that much time getting out.

    I was really disappointed to see people leaving


    Oh we will fight, fight, fight for Iowa State,
    and may her colors ever fly!!!

    I agree with you. Those guys deserved our full support for the entire game today. And that's what the g/f and I did.

    Re: Leaving 5 minutes early

    i was very unhppy that the crowd started to file out with 5 minutes left(or so) after the endzone INT. The game was far from over and i thought that was some BS.

    Re: Leaving 5 minutes early

    I agree. I was so proud of their effort, I wanted to stay until the end to make sure that they knew I appreciated their hard work. I would have to say most of the people in my section stayed until the very end.

    The right half of my neck is fried red. Actually... I'm used to it looking like that... AFTER I PAINT IT

    For once, I have a legitimate sun burn insted of residual paint - it's kinda weird



    (though not nearly as weird as the fact that it's only 1/2 my neck )

    I've got about a 1/2" streak of sunburn across my forehead in the area between where my face paint ended and my bandana took over....

    Yeah, people leaving early was a surprise on a nice day for football.

    Agreed, I stayed and clapped for the guys they really played hard!

    Re: Leaving 5 minutes early

    I started leaving about after we missed that last 4th down conversion, but even then, I stopped by the walkway as the team left to cheer them on. They played a hell of a game today.

    I made it known in our section that I thought people were being disrespectful of the team's effort.

    Re: Leaving 5 minutes early

    I left with like a minute left or so purely to beat the rush. As I left, time expired and i cheer and saluted our great effort today. I don't think there is anything wrong with that

    I left early. If the players need our acknowledgement that they played a good game then they are a bunch of pansies.

    I think they played a great game, but you NEVER clap when somebody loses. I don't care how good the team was, that is rediculously stupid.

    Nobody cares how disappointed you were, take your pity party somewhere else next time.
