    TCU, KS Support

    Just got done watching the weekly press conference where Woody and George were interviewed. Woody was questioned on what it meant to run through the tunnel only two more times as an ISU football player. I couldn't help but feel his sadness over the finality of his college career. That brings me to this post.

    I know that we have had an extremely disappointing year and there is no way any fan, coach or player wanted this as an outcome. But despite the lack of success on the field this year, these 18 seniors have been a part of some very fun, entertaining and magical moments in cyclone football history. They were here to give to the fans many firsts. Those moments we enjoyed a ton and want more of, thus making this year even harder to swallow.

    We have different opinions and debate daily on what needs to happen to this program in order to have more of those moments in the future, but one thing we can all agree on is this is where we are RIGHT NOW. For these 18 seniors they have worked hard, done all that has been asked of them and unfortunately deserve more. I encourage our fan base to come out and support these young men two more times not because they are owed it, but deserve it. It would also show the younger players that we do stand behind our STUDENT ATHLETES. If it's not in your heart to do so, that's okay, but I for one want to thank this group of fine young men for some great memories.

    Meh, I do feel bad for them but I'm not going to go watch a dumpster fire for these last two games.

    Re: TCU, KS Support

    I hold no ill-will against any of the players and wish all of the seniors well. With that said, there is value in time and I'd rather spend the next few saturdays with my kids, doing getting stuff done around the house, etc. than watching us get blown out. Maybe that makes me a fairweather fan, but by the time you get everyone up and going, tailgate, watch the game, then come home you've wasted your whole Saturday is gone. When the games are fun and entertaining, its worth it. When they are awful, you feel like you wasted valuable time.

    I feel sorry for the kids...

    but as soon as the game goes south in the late 2nd/rd quarter...people will bail (ones that show). This coaching staff deserves nothing more than a flaming bag of poop on their doorstep.

    Nice job OP, and you're right. I hope everybody shows up just as if we had a winning record. I really can't believe some of the other ******** on this board. You're only going to show up if we're guaranteed a win? **** off. Go cheer on the Hawkeyes ********.

    I'll be there, but I'll also be headed home early if we start getting blown out again.

    Guaranteed a win? I'd be happy to hold the margin to 20 points. Think about that - a 20 point loss is now considered a "close" loss.

    Yep were the only fan base in America that doesn't support a losing team. Seriously, look across the country in week 1 and lots of BCS stadiums were empty. Our stadium sold out coming off a 6-7 record and blowout loss in a crappy bowl game against lowly Tulsa.

    Seriously, dont call our fans crap. Even the hardcore fans reach a point where enough is enough. I feel bad for the kids and players but come on, the product on the field is a dumpster fire. We were 1-5 and sold out against Oklahoma State only to get blown out and embarassed at home. I could keep going but dont question this fan base and their support of ISU football. Nobody wants to waste an entire saturday watching a team getting blown out. Its not even competitive.

    One more note-look at teams with awesome records headed to great bowl games (Baylor for example) and they still cant fill there stadium. Lots of empty seats when we played top 20 Texas Tech.

    I'll always be at the games, but I'm not going to sit through a pounding. Once the chance of victory is gone, so am I.

    I know the Hawkeyes are playing Purdue but do you really think that is a guaranteed win for them.....

    Re: TCU, KS Support

    Were you at Okie St game? To post flaming fans for not supporting the team (or worrying that they won't) is ****ing ridiculous.

    We've won 1 game this year and gotten curb-stomped a lot. The amount of support is astounding, if you ask me.
