    Re: Feeling a little duped right now

    The crybaby's on this board are reaching epic proportions. If anyone says they didn't expect a down year this year they are either a complete homer with no actual knowledge of college football or lying. Yes, we all thought we'd beat UNI and most, myself included, thought we could get potentially 4-5 wins but you can't just turn a blind eye to our injuries and pretend they don't matter. They do matter, injuries effect all teams. Some years injuries don't effect a team much at all and others years they do. Unfortunetly for us this year they are really effecting us in a big way.

    To me the OP is the worst kind of fan. A guy that turns his back on a program after 1/2 of a bad season...after several before that very much should have exceeded expectations. Did you really think CPR would win 7 games his first year? Or go to 3 bowls in his first 4 years the day he took the job? My best guess would be that if someone told you that the day CPR took the job you would have **** yourself with excitement. I know I would have after the Chizik years. So yes, I'm still pretty goddamn content with Paul Rhoads.

    And if you still can't see that the talent level of the underclassman is improving then you also don't know much about football.

    It was a bowl season against one of the toughest schedules in the nation. Where have all these whiny ****** come from?

    To use your words, then CPR was "lying" to us at the Gridiron Club preseason scrimmage...

    Another classic Iowa State excuse.

    Why do we keep setting up impossible schedules? Setting ourselves up to suck.

    I think the op just needs to stop reading Blum's and CW's columns each week.

    At the end of the day, we need to ask ourselves what sports are really for.

    If they're not about building character and teaching young people (it may be too late for their fans) to win with grace and lose with dignity, then they're just a giant sham and really only about the ka-ching.

    And if that's the case, they need to become franchises and pay their players and quit pretending that they - like the university they are supposed to represent - have anything to do with teaching and learning.

    Clone to the Bone, win or lose. THAT's what sets us apart from everyone else.

    Did you think this was the ten-second blurb at the end of He-Man where we learn what was the "teachable moment" from today's episode?

    Shut the **** up, numbnuts.

    The Kansas State program laughs at our excuses and inability to build anything worthwhile.

    ...or maybe I am expecting too much for the 4K I give every year.

    Don't worry you're part of the club too. We all know misery loves company.

    I'm the biggest homer when it comes to predictions, but it's one thing to predict a win and quite another to believe your own BS. Though there are some who do just that.

    You don't lose 3 NFL-caliber players at ISU and just keep going, there is going to be a drop off.
    Actually, told my co-workers in August we would be lucky to get through pre-conference with one win and then would probably beat Kansas or WV. Not gloating and wish I would have been wrong.

    Re: Feeling a little duped right now

    I keep reading the term "rebuilding year" on this thread and others. I didn't realize 6 wins was "built." Cyclone nation might be the only fanbase in the nation that would call this a rebuilding year. Regression? Yes. Setback? Definitely. Rebuilding? God I hope not.
