    Fan since 1963

    I have seen this so many times in the last 50 years. The excuses are injuries and we are soooo young. We hear, 'wait until next year' and,.... 'good fans should hold steady and stay the course' For me. it's just too many times and I refuse to fall for it again. It is clear that this is the beginning of the end for this staff. One (maybe 2) more wins this year and, with luck, four wins next year with few in the stands for the last 3 home games. Hope will be lost so we will need a new coach. With the new guy and staff, Hopes get raised, fail, cycle and repeat. After all, -- We are Iowa State! Ugg, evermore nevermore.

    You've invested 50 years and this year is enough to push you over the edge?

    Mess and Co need to go, but one down year in five is no reason to lose your mind.

    Truer words have never been spoken.

    And to the OP, if you've been hanging around for that long I'm not too worried about you. You're obviously a tough SoB. If you've stuck it out this long, you'll be back. We'll be waiting for you and will welcome you when you walk through those doors again. Take as much time as you need.

    Until you get old and worn out. It happens to us all. Too much emotional capital from this old fart.

    Re: Fan since 1963

    Now that i'm good and depressed in can go to bed. Good grief i get what you are saying but come on. Paul Rhoads has earned a really bad year or two. I'm willing to give him the time to see if something good can come of it. If he doesn't get some time the cycle described above will definitely happen.
