    Realizing this is as good as it gets

    I've been all in for years. Season tickets, parking my RV the night before the game at Trice. But I feel like ISU football is Lucy and I'm Charlie Brown. Everytime we get close, Lucy moves the ball when I go to kick it. I'm going to enjoy the games going forward, knowing what our rightful place is in the Big 12 pecking order. Forever Cloned.

    Northwestern went to the Rose Bowl.

    We can win the Big 12.

    Oh my god, shut up! Lost by 6 to number ******* 5 in the nation!! Not to mention a coach that has had our number since he got to Manhattan.

    The sky did not fall on Saturday, we are 4-2 and will be competitive if not better in the rest of our games.

    You should voice this opinion to Paul Rhoads.

    Re: Realizing this is as good as it gets

    i think it is pretty fun now. honestly some of the my favorite games were in the macarney years in the late 90s before there were expectations. its not really that big of deal; i think it would be overrated to be a fan of alabama or a perrinial powerhouse; the upsets are the best part of being an isu fan. alabama fans wont be satisfied unless they win it all; nebraska fans wont be happy unless the win the big 10 and if they won that they would be mad if they lost their bcs bowl. purdue; tennessee; kentucky wont be happy unless their coach if fired. the hawks are on top of the world after their win against msu; indiana wont be happy till they get an upset this year; illinois wont be happy till the entire athletic dept is gutted; south carolina is mad they lost against lsu and it goes on and on and on. being a national championship contender is not all its cracked up to be; ticket prices would go up and our fans would be become so much more annoying. i have already noticed some our fans becoming increasingly annoying and honestly if we won the big 12 it would probably be a good time to take a break from going to games and reading the boards for a while because expectations would be sky high and unless we won it again no one would be happy. its been a great 4 years watching rhoads teams; much more excing than the macarney years; the ups and downs; its been a wild ride. i really just hope we find a way to pull the win in stillwater; one game at a time. and then if we win their fanbase will go into meltdown mode. this college football is a little out of hand; just keep it all in perspective.

    Re: Realizing this is as good as it gets

    I think people need to enjoy the success and be happy that it is being built the right way. You can't enjoy the success without knowing failure. The clones are building a nice following and playing tough football. All you can ever ask of a team and coaching staff is to go out and put a competitive team on the field and enjoy watching the game. When all is said and done there is really only 1 winner at the end of the season and a ton of losers. Enjoy the fun, enjoy the sport, and enjoy the season.
