    Dealing with this Loss.

    I am way too emotionally attached to watching this basketball team. Losing that game almost ruined my day. For others like myself, I recommend opening some windows, shower, blasting some good music, or gym. On to next year guys, hopefully CPR brings the pain this fall.

    You're doing better than I am. It did ruin my day. I've felt sick all afternoon. I feel so bad for the seniors, Babb especially.

    Almost ruined your day?

    Any self respecting Cyclone should have their day ruined by that game.

    Check out Hoiberg's interview with Walters on cyclones.com. That guy is ticked and honestly I don't really worry about him leaving, but he seems like a guy who would want to say screw it to coaching.

    Re: Dealing with this Loss.

    After 97 and 2000, I couldn't watch basketball for more than five minutes. Today I can. It sucks, but there are reasons to be optimistic. We played toe to toe with one of the best teams in America and we almost pulled it out. It's ok, we are in good shape.

    Almost ruined your day? wth.
    It crushed my day and will probably ruin my week. Especially, when I see OSU waltz into the final 4 next weekend. This loss will sting for a long *** time.


    When Prepared, Fear No One.

    Re: Dealing with this Loss.

    Today was another kick in the ****. 2000 was a flat out repeated *** stomping.
    There is a still a lot to be optimistic about looking forward.

    Yep. Ruined my day? It ruined at least the next month, and will be something I think back on for years. Programs change their place in the CBB landscape with tournament runs, thus losing in that manner will hurt for awhile. 4 of our last 5 NCAA losses have been against #1 or #2 seeds playing de facto home games. With these past two teams, you have to wonder how far we could have gone if we could avoid such match-ups until later.

    Re: Dealing with this Loss.

    The Kansas screw job ruined my day. This game didn't. A missed opportunity, but those are common when you're a good but not great team. I was happy we got back in it and had a chance at the end.

    Re: Dealing with this Loss.

    I am emotionally numb after this season. So many close games have made it an every day occurrence.
