    PRE-GAME SUPERSTITIONS

    I have to admit I do not have a certain superstition, other than hyper-ventilation, when it comes to ISU games. My Dad however has a rather odd routine of putting a jalepeno pepper in his beer on kickoff, has done this since the Walden years.

    Just curious at any superstitions or pre-game routines anyone does for ISU football or basketball games.

    This sounds like me, except my wife has decided to avoid me permanently instead of just during Cyclone events.

    Re: PRE-GAME SUPERSTITIONS

    I tend to stick to my ritual of drinking around 15 beers in the tailgating lots prior to kickoff.

    You're doing it wrong, EVERYONE should be yelling and excited.

    Don't kid yourself. It's a superstition/tradition.

    I think you know... you know...

    If so many of us have routines, why doesn't it work? I think we should all change after the loss. I get a Mountain Dew, with half Code Red, Cyclone Dew.

    Re: PRE-GAME SUPERSTITIONS

    I will never predict a score on a website. The last time I did, Greg Colemam fumbled away the Baylor game ending the Bears 897 conference road losing streak.

    You can all blame me but it will never happen again.

    Oh I like to pace and drink 1000 beers before the game, you guys.

    This. We're at just below 500 for CPR's tenure. It'd probably wise for us to start changing our superstitions. I'm going to start with changing my lack of beer wenches at my tailgate

    Maybe i should clarify, although i think it may answer my question, the routine wasn't to ensure football game victory, but drunkeness for said football game.
