    Am I the only one that thinks this??

    Being it my first game back....I can never remember the atmosphere as electric in the past for similar type caliber foe. I thought the crowd was great..the band was awesome (usual)...and the game was great. This board is filled with threads of one complaint or another...from everything on a band miscue to stadium song selection. I was just pickled joyous to be there and to give out another obnoxious "fiiiiirrrrrsssstttt dooooowwwwnnnn!" blast.

    and give me more of the "premature" cannon misfires....keeps me from doing the liquid nod-off into my neighbor's lap

    I agree with you. The stadium was looking like it was November and we were playing for a Big XII North Title. The upper deck was close to full, the crowd was very red! (Great job everyone, just remember to wear gold at the Nebraska game!)

    When I have been reading all the various complaints about the game I just keep thinking that WE WON THE GAME!!! Yea somethings could have gone better but come on do you guys just have to have something to complain about or what?! I am just happy that we won and am looking forward to march into Kinnick and kick @$$ against the Hawks.

    That's what you missed that Thursday night, bud! Even though there were only 42,000 of us there, we were loud as hell. I'm really disappointed, now, that I won't be able to attend the Nebraska game, because it's probably going to set attendance records.


    Go Sssssssssyclones!

    Guess people are complaining because they are worrying about the Iowa game and will we do okay. The water is over the Dam Rebels, but we have another Dam downstream on the Big12 River to meet on Saturday: Dam Iowa.
