    ďI told you, I donít care if youíre black or white. I donít care if youíre rich or poor. I donít care where you come from, whether itís Texas, Florida, California, or right here in the state of Iowa, I donít care about any of thatÖ But what I did care about is moving forward from that day on, that we were one team." -Paul Rhoads

    Re: Were we looking past the Hawks?

    I believe the team may have looked past them slightly. Many were on the team last year when we ran them out of the building (or at least could have if we wouldn't have lost interest).

    You look at Iowa and see a bunch of....... well I'll just be nice and say they don't look like your typical pressing, athletic basketball team.

    Our squad went to the tourney last year and probably assumed they were clearly better than Iowa having just come off a clubbing of a team with a similar racial make up as Iowa.

    I know most of our fans assumed it was a win based on CF and CR. Although that really doesn't matter IMO.

    No way in hell did the team look past Iowa. ISU just played like a pile of steaming poo and Iowa took advantage of it.

    Re: Were we looking past the Hawks?

    Due to a typo the team schedule listed the opponent last night as Iona. Unfortunately that caused us to work all week on a game plan on how to stop Tavon Sledge.

    So when Iowa State beats Iowa, it's our Super Bowl.

    But when Iowa beats Iowa State, it's because Iowa is better?

    I think I got it now.

    Not more talented.
    But that's your time now. We don't need other trolls. We're trolling ourselves today.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!
