    Can the winning team be butt hurt?

    I enjoy viewing the opposition's board when we lose,
    and I was surprised at what I saw over at the Phog
    message board.
    I can't remember ever seeing as many post game threads that focus
    on slamming the losers as much as I've seen there.
    The top 2 volume threads are "F"-ISU type threads, "we should of dunked to
    close the game" statements etc. I think those 2 previous overtime
    games must of scared them up a bit. KU is a classic program with
    a basketball tradition to be proud of.......it would be disappointing if the
    fan base couldn't match it.

    Re: Can the winning team be butt hurt?

    Yeah, I think it bothered them quite a bit that the world (at least sports world) knew they didn't really win the game in Ames.

    Screw them. They hate us. I hate them.

    I do think the Great Bill Self is slightly concerned that little old Fred Hoiberg is back there.

    Self knows that we're coming. The fan base is worried - you can tell just by looking at the ESPN boards. They are more concerned about calling us whiners than about celebrating their own team.

    Fred will have us positioned as a real rival to KU. You can already see the effects of that.

    KU fans know that Iowa State is best positioned to dethrone their chippy program. Weber at KSU is not something that is going to last.

    Re: Can the winning team be butt hurt?

    Guess I didn't realize one could win
    and whine....KU fans had nothing but
    good things to say about us in the past,
    and our fan base hasn't changed...other
    than we now are a threat. I do like Self
    (minus the embarrassing melt down)
    and their players stay outta trouble and
    seem like a quality group of young men.
    The only reason I can imagine KU fans
    morphing into the "new Missouri" is fear.
    Amusing huh?

    I think throwing stuff at their players after the last game may have changed their view of our fan base.

    Yeah, we have idiots that toss plastic
    cups and they have tools that quote
    "love the taste of Fred's 8 year old son's
    tears"......is it just me, or does that
    come off as very creepy?

    Re: Can the winning team be butt hurt?

    I think that you need to at some point win though to make it an official rivalry. The fact that everyone and their Mom knows we actually won the game in Ames helps. But we cannot get blown out by them by 15 and still keep it a rivalry. I know looking at the ISU v Iowa football rivalry game, it didn't really start being a "Rivalry" until we started beating them more than losing to them.

    The fact I absolutely HATE and abhor Kansas was nothing new. However I never minded Hairpiece until this year, I kinda liked him but this year I have distaste for him for some odd reason. This also makes the rivalry more intense.

    Re: Can the winning team be butt hurt?

    The announcers and studio were constantly mentioning that ISU actually won game 2 of the 3 games. That drives fans with the KU basketball or Nebraska football mindset absolutely insane.

    Even as the studio ended it's broadcast they brought up the fact that KU lost in Ames.
