    This may cause troubles.

    I didn't use my real name (because I was afraid that the UNLV fans could look me up on the ISU website), but:

    Re: This may cause troubles.

    I just figured that maybe the student newspaper would be the place to put something - although I have serious doubts that any of them will understand that their team did anything wrong.

    I think you summed up all of our feelings and presented them in a respectful manner. You represented the university well. Thank you.

    Re: This may cause troubles.

    You need to share that letter with the MWC and with UNLV's administration where something might actually get done about there pathetic sportsmanship.

    Re: This may cause troubles.

    I wonder how you would get in touch w/the MWC? I'm sure that they have a site somewhere... I'll have to do some hunting.

    Re: This may cause troubles.

    I have another opinion. I can't understand exactly why you would write that. Clearly their coach and team lost their cool at the end of a very close game, in which they were serious underdogs. So what? Did they hurt anyone? Nope.

    I saw photos of ISU fans taunting those guys after the game, when the finally left the field. That bothered me more than anything UNLV did.

    Those guys gave us everything we could handle and nearly walked out with a win.

    I think your letter is just rubbing salt in the wound. The UNLV team wanted the game bad, and it BARELY didn't go their way. A bit of understanding for their frustration is in order.

    I take it you were not in attendance? from my vantage point...it was the UNLV players acting like complete dolts on the pitch that kicked everything off into the "twilight zone" ...not to mention the complete lack of proper behaviour by the UNLV coaching staff.

    Re: This may cause troubles.

    I agree completely w/Mike. Only somebody in the crowd could understand why their actions were reprehensible. There was no "rubbing salt" in any wound - their coach couldn't even be bothered to shake Mac's hand, and then let his team taunt the crowd. We were all filing out of the stands, minding our own business, when this all occured. There should be a formal apology by their school to ISU, and possibly sanctions against them. If their own coach had known the change in the MWC's rules for reviewing plays (which is something that you would figure would be of concern to him), none of this would have happened.

    What am I supposed to understand? That their coach acted like a whiney 5 year old, who didn't get his way? That his actions sparked anger in the rest of him team who went on OUR FIELD and STOMPED on OUR LOGO. Letting that go as just "acceptable" is complete B.S. I can't believe any Cyclone fan wouldn't be upset that this happened.

    The fans were upset only because of their actions. We did not taunt them to make them angry. We tried to send a message that what they were doing was completely unacceptable and we did not appreciate their actions!
