    I was in that section and totally agree with you. But really, why are they there? Who are they trying to get to cheer? Plus, that means we missed out on the dance team 2nd half...

    I want to float a general complaint out there about Aaron White. I hate that guy. Why does he look like that?

    Re: Complain About Stuff at the Game Thread

    Wait so we have one thread for this? I like when half the threads on the main page are about separate gripes that some how turn into the same ones.
    Why was this game on ESPNU?
    I am sure there were probably a lot of old people who had trouble standing or cheering during the game. Why has this not been mentioned already?
    Has anyone mentioned that we stormed the court and did terrible job doing it?

    I do feel somewhat better about getting some of those things off my chest.

    This is all spiraling out of control. We really need another game. At least 3 games away from Hilton will right this ship wreck that is the CF basketball forum.

    That is until we beat N.Illinois on NYE, and rush the court.... I would almost seriously think about doing this if I was a group of students. Just to see some of your heads explode.

    Noticed you mentioned the number of offspring they bring. Thought there was a law against hoks having offspring.

    Re: Complain About Stuff at the Game Thread

    Since there isn't a game right now, I'd rather complain from my computer.


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

    Re: Complain About Stuff at the Game Thread

    A while ago my wife and I had a good routine for ISU bball games. A drink or two before the game followed by stopping for a couple drinks after the game. This was a great routine that always lead to getting lucky at the end of the night. Then Cyclone Alley was created and that routine was completely disrupted and haven't gotten lucky after an ISU bball game in years. I think her complete disgust with Cyclone Alley has killed her sex drive. Thanks a lot Cyclone Alley.

    On a completely unrelated side note we started having kids around that same time but I'm pretty sure it's not related.

    Ah, so the link between Cyclone Alley and the end of humanity is beginning to become clear...

    The hate in you is strong. It is almost like you lived in the Cedar Falls area for an unbearable amount of time.

    I'm pretty sure cheerleaders always set up shop under the basket on the side their team's bench. It has more to do with where our student section is that the visitors end up in front of it


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    Re: Complain About Stuff at the Game Thread

    An actual, legitimate beef: I was told to sit down in the midst of an ISU run cutting a 9 point deficit to 3 during the biggest game of the year to date and the second biggest ISU-Iowa matchup in history. I guess there are rules regarding Hilton Magic. Who knew?!

    Cedar Falls is a nice town. Having KWWL constantly proclaim the UNI student section as the coolest thing since sliced bread got pretty old.

    That is how you negate their cheerleader effectiveness. JP has it all figured out.
