    Re: The worst week of the year is now officially over thread

    It was just a week ago, wasn't it? It hasn't been the best week ever, for sure.

    I hate, hate, hate the end of basketball season. I really don't care about spring football at all.

    Wasn't that bad a week after all. Some random dude happened to sign a contract extension that made me feel better about my week.

    Re: The worst week of the year is now officially over thread

    I miss watching us play but I don't miss watching college basketball in general. Since the Craft game winner last Sunday I've probably watched 10-12 minutes of the NCAA tournament. Sadly, 5 of those minutes was wasted on Marquette v Syracuse game.

    Re: The worst week of the year is now officially over thread

    It took me til about Thursday or Friday to move on from the loss to Ohio State. The constant what if pounding away made me pretty frustrated.

    ISU holds a basketball scrimmage in Hilton each fall before a football home game. I've never attended those, but I will this year to get a look at the new kids. Phase 2 of Hoiball is ready to commence.

    Re: The worst week of the year is now officially over thread

    The worst week of the year this year is April 9th-April 14th. It sucks when Iowa State basketball is over, but at least we have the rest of the NCAA tournament to give us our basketball fix. When the NCAA tournament is over though, for me it's the most depressing time of the year knowing that I have to wait 7 months to watch another college basketball game; especially since all other sports including Iowa State football/college football interest me very little.

    I didn't watch any basketball until last night when the Shockers were up on OSU. I love me some college bball, but after our loss I just didn't wanna see or hear about it for awhile. The Shockers winning helped me get over it though.

    I don't really get excited for spring football, so this is definitely the worst time of year for me. Especially after the NCAA tourny ends.

    Re: The worst week of the year is now officially over thread

    My interest in the tourney in general was renewed a few hours after ISU lost. Dunk City showed up in the 2nd half against San Diego St and made me feel better about basketball in general. Gotta say FGCU was the most exciting team in the country to watch in those 2 rounds they won.

    Just now learning about Baab's recovery timetable and it would have sucked to go up against Arizona without him, but at least FH would have had nearly a week to prep for the game. Looks like he would have been done for the year, or at least until the championship game had ISU made a run that deep.

    Re: The worst week of the year is now officially over thread

    On a side note, the Cyclones bowl loss to Tulsa left me more shell shocked than anything. Its the 1st time EVER that I didn't give a rats pajamas about the New years day bowls. I can't even tell you who won the Rose Bowl right now. I had no clue ATM whooped OU a week later. No memory of anything. At least the basketball team went down swinging.

    Rhoads boys getting it handed to them a second consecutive year in a bowl was a really the hardest pill to swallow.
