    Re: Anti Kool-Aid

    Make your own Kool-Aid. Don't depend on the media to do it for you.

    If you rise and fall with the stuff they say and don't say, your heart won't last long.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Yeah I've turned sour on Bobby as well. Especially after that "whining about whining" article.

    I was already on the fence about him with his basic grammar errors and overall lackluster writing

    A Mechanical engineer is whining about your grammar you're in trouble as a writer.

    I hate writing, but that doesn't mean I don't know the grammar rules

    Anyone care to summarize what was said, since I'm not searching out another podcast?

    1.They think the score was 20-19 last time we played UNI two years ago.

    2.Tuftee not starting will create a domino effect that will cause the whole team to lay helpless and flop like fish on the field.

    3. ISU will be lucky to win 3, 4, or 5 games depending on who talks.

    4. Missing kicks is a comedy and great entertaiment.

    5. Wally Burnham is somehow the reason our kicking has always sucked.

    6. Irving had a small ceiling placed over his head so now he must stay low like a midget.

    Think that sums it up.

    I think there's some truth to 1,3,4. 4 being a comedy of errors. I don't understand what 6 even means.
