    Why did we rush the court ?!

    I know this was a nail bitter, but really??

    We cant be rushing the court like this. Cyclone alley and students really need to act like we have been there before. A win is a win, enjoy it...but lets not rush the court every time ! Come on now peeps!

    Why did you make thread number 12 about this?

    WHO THE **** CARES???

    I think the students should go to mid-court and sign Sweet Caroline after every win.

    "Act like you've been there." Why? Why does it matter what we do?

    College sports, especially rivalries, are exciting. They're emotional. That's what makes it great. Why not celebrate it?

    Re: Why did we rush the court ?!

    Since I spend all my time worrying about what other fanbases think, we should never celebrate again. Every celebration might look ridiculous to someone.

    Have some dignity. Stand at a rigid position of attention while restraining all emotion. Clap politely and stand in line to go home.


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

    I was about to post the same thing. Why try to control your emotions? If you start to become numb to winning big games, what's the point of even watching them?


    I don't think I'm alone when I say I'd like to see more and more planets fall under the ruthless domination of our solar system.

    Re: Why did we rush the court ?!

    Unless someone picks you up and carries you along to rush the floor it isn't your call. If people are excited and want to rush the floor, let them. I suspect the players may even be boosted by it. It is just possible that it is a component of what we call Hilton Magic.

    Re: Why did we rush the court ?!

    A few years ago at this time we were complaining about the student section, and particularly Cyclone Alley being too subdued. Now we are complaining about their outpouring of excitement.

    So let this be a lesson, student section. Be excited, crazy and intimidating, but not too excited, crazy and intimidating.

    Presumably because it reinforces the notion that we get super excited to beat big brother and that regardless of national rank we feel inferior to UI and thus rush the court.

    I prefer to think that it was our students way of protecting the I-STATE from the chicken head cheerleaders.

    Rush it after every win. I mentioned this to some Hawk fans: Don't like it, don't lose to us.


    Son, it's your welfare I care about. You know, that check. Did that come today?

    We win a big rivalry game against a rated team, and then spend the next three days berating our fans and team. Isn't that what Jon Miller's cesspool is for?
