    You're already behind. Volleyball beat Baylor last night in a 3-2 thriller.

    I'll be at all of those events PLUS the 5:30 BB games on Fri/Sat. Unfortunately, because of the Saturday schedule, I won't be able to get to the Rec for the wrestling tournament.

    Re: It's Cyclone Sports Weekend!!!

    I've considered taking a job out of the state, but I don't think I could miss weekends like this! I'll be content living in Ames at least for awhile longer... travel expeses would get sorta high if I moved...

    Re: It's Cyclone Sports Weekend!!!

    REALLY want to hit the Wrestlers tonight, but that's a function of how much of my Propulsion and Astro gets done this afternoon. Don't know about the first MBB game, have to pick up people sometime around the 9-10 timeframe, so if they're on time, I'm gonna have to skip.

    Colorado and second game of Cyclone Classic are definite 'yes'

    Sunday I'm watching the Packer/Viking game until 3, then I'll be in line for KU/Iowa tickets the rest of the afternoon. Really wish I could catch the Husker game.

    Re: It's Cyclone Sports Weekend!!!

    im going to the Football Game and Vball game.. maybe the girls basketball game


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    Re: It's Cyclone Sports Weekend!!!

    Well, one event down and five to go!

    The 'raslers' came out strong tonight. I know they were paired up with niu...

    Artist is the only opportunity for now, but for a first ever match, he may have been a little nervous.

    Reader was everything he's been hyped up to be. That kid is crazy.

    I have to admit, this is the first year I've ever had season tickets to wrestling. Is it always that quiet in there?? The announcer was practically begging for people to cheer.

    I'm not looking forward to another drawn out day at work tomorrow waiting for the Bball game.... see ya all there!

    Basically. Wrestling is a sport all it's own though. Instead of being loud as hell, it's more yelling "let's go XXXXX" or "Turn it!!" "Shoot!" etc. The wrestlers tend to need to hear their coaches, instead of the crowd, during the match.

    Also, a majority of the people there were wrestlers in high school or college, or were coaches of wrestling. There tend to be more people knowing the ins and outs of the sport than others.

    No, todays attendance was an ISU record and a State of Iowa Record for a college volleyball game.


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.
