    What superstitions will you observe today?

    I have been shaving, trimming the vandyke and get my Mountain Dew, Code Red mix. (Cyclone colors) I also try something different than last game. I'm wearing my gold pullover today instead of the traditional red. I wore this for the KU losses and wore the red one on the last OU loss. So shaking things up.

    Re: What superstitions will you observe today?

    Good question. I made up with my gold Cyclone shirt the other day. I hadn't worn it since KU, and it fell off the hanger when I grabbed another shirt. We hugged it out, and I told it I knew the game wasn't his fault.

    I did the same thing I've done for every other ISU win this season...

    Text one of the managers and wish them good luck!

    Re: What superstitions will you observe today?

    I'm not going to read the preview to the iowa state game in the paper, and then once the game starts, if it's going well I've got to keep doing whatever I'm doing. Can't break the karma

    Re: What superstitions will you observe today?

    I wore a Kansas Jayhawk colored polo today. I noticed a strange trend that when I (by complete accident) wore the color of our next opponent the Cyclones win their game that day. Good thing I have a purple, a green, and an orange polo available in the closet for tomorrow night so I have all of the potential championship game opponents covered.

    Skoal mint and scratch off lottery tickets. Game day must haves.

    For those with nervous tendencies that don't/can't drink for a game those scratch offs are just the ticket to take the edge off.

    I don't have enough money to buy the number of scratch offs I would need to get me through a game.

    Not wearing any underwear. These dress pants are surprisingly comfortable


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    Just make sure they don't have any holes in them and you remember to zip up after using the restroom.

    Re: What superstitions will you observe today?

    Please don't kill me fanatics. But for the first Okla game, I was not even thinking in the morning and just picked a random shirt. In my cloest is an OU shirt that my brother gave me since he is a diehard Sooner fan. I only keep the shirt cause it is nice. So after running some errands that day, I start watching the ISU game not even realizing that I am wearing the OU shirt. Half time comes and ISU is up big. I looked down and I finally realize that I am wearing an OU shirt during the ISU/OU game. I was going to go up to change but then the superstitous part of me said to leave it on since we were up big. I left it on for the rest of the game and we won big. I decided that for the next ISU game against Okla that I would wear my typical ISU stuff. Turns out, it did not work at all and we lost big.

    So today I am rocking my ISU polo and underneath is the Okla shirt I have. In no way am I cheering for OU but I cannot risk another ISU loss by just wearing ISU gear today.
