    An obvious lesson the team needs to learn from last night's game.

    Not to let the game come down to an official's call in the end. Our team must make plays when opportunities present themselves, and take the refs out of the equation. My hope is our team takes this lesson to heart and takes it to the Red Raiders in nine days. ​GO CYCLONES!

    Edit: Yes, I like to bold my words frequently.

    I'm sure that they did there best to avoid the game from coming down into the officials hands.

    Things are always more logical with random bold lettering. That is a nice manifesto for victory.


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

    Well, that "Hail Mary" pass at the end of the first half, and our team's final scoring drive came to mind when I wrote the OP. Need to finish; as simple as that.

    No, they didn't. That hail mary shouldn't have happened. We also should've scored a TD when we were at the five...

    Here's the thing; If you are ISU and the game is close YOU WILL BE ****ED. Don't let it get to that point.

    I'd love to. I'd love to tell our guys that this conference's refs WILL **** YOU. It IS GOING TO HAPPEN. So on a jump ball vs. UT we have to get it.

    Even with the hail mary, our guys made enough plays to win. As simple as that.

    And even with the Hail Mary and not scoring a TD at the 5 we still made the play to win the game.

    Next time, we'll run more touchdown plays and stop touchdown plays. That will solve everything.

    I believe the team would agree with me after listening to and viewing the post game interviews.

    See my next post. When ISU plays UT in football & KU in bball you can't win close. This conferences ref aren't going to let that happen.
