    Grow up, grow a sack and go positively represent this fan base and root for this team.
    Challenging season, yes. But did anyone think it might be the WORST SEASON IN PROGRAM HISTORY? I bet just about nobody did.

    Re: Most Pathetic Wussies Ever

    No way does a recruit make up their minds by reading a message board on the internet. They might look at it...but they don't make their decision good or bad by reading one! Every school has the exact same thing (anonymous negative posters) so it is an equalizer.

    Don't make the posters or the website (as great as it may be) more important than it really is...it is not a tool that aides recruitment!

    Are you serious? Not even close to the worst season in ISU history. You probably were not around in the Criner/Walden days.

    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    I'll positively rep the fan base when the team gives us something positive to take from the games. Or when Messingham gets fired, whichever comes first.

    I can't say I'm old enough to remember those, but how in any way were they worse than a 1-win season in 2013? Aside from having 0 fan support back then, they would have to be pretty darn near identical.

    Give it three weeks and then ask if we as a school have ever lost eleven games in one season? If so, this season is comparable to whiner Criner days or Walden walk the Plank days. If you lose, it essentially does not matter if you lose by 7 or 70, both of which we have done this year.

    Interesting.

    What's your vote for worst season?

    Because 1-11 w/ a loss to UNI has got to be up there. Top five, right?

    Re: Most Pathetic Wussies Ever

    After some careful reflection upon reading this thread, I have decided the OP correct. 1-8 is freaking awesome. I am sorry I was ever ashamed of losing to UNI, I realize now that I was being overly critical. 1-11 is awesome. It's like 6-6 without the hassle of going to a bowl game.

    Re: Most Pathetic Wussies Ever

    The real wussies are those who believe that everyone should get a trophy and it's not okay to be negative. There are winners and losers in life, and right now we are losers so we need to make changes to get better. If someone doesn't do their job correctly, they lose it, that's how it works in the real world. If pointing out the problems with the football program is wrong, then go ahead and be happy with 1-11 seasons for the rest of your life.
