    Yes, we won!

    Iowa came into Hilton playing with the size, poise and precision of a pro. In the first half Iowa was far better team than their number 23 ranking would imply. Yet, in spite of an intolerable transition defense, failed free-through attempts and a painful 3 point performance in the first half, the Cyclone’s warrior like mentality may have lost a few of the battles but won the all-important war!!!

    It is one thing to come back from a 10 point deficit against a marginal team, but coming back and beating Iowa is a true tribute to the perseverance, positive passion, fully focused intensity and a burning will to win endemic in the very fiber of their being. A winner looks at adversity the way a lion looks at lunch. As a result, a great team can learn more from failure than success and I am excited to see this team turn the adversity experienced in to an advantage. The future looks bright and I count it a privilege and a pleasure to be able to sit in the stands and witness the game of basketball being played at such a high level. Grow to GREATNESS and go Cyclones!

    I think Chris Williams, or one of his moderators, needs to teach a course on "Thread Efficiency"

    Wow OP, I'm inspired. There's a klamath632-sized hole in the wall where I just ran through it.


    I noticed that during the low periods of my life, when I was suffering from anguish, sorrow or defeat, I could see only one set of footprints, so I said to the Lord,
    “You promised me Lord, that if I followed you, you would walk with me always. During the most trying periods of my life there has only been one set of footprints in the sand. Why, when I needed you most, have you not been there for me?”
    “Because,” says the Lord, “Sandpeople always ride single-file, to hide their numbers.”

    As you review some of these posts, you can decide whether they are written by future winners or losers in life.

    Re: Yes, we won!

    The defense really picked up the second half. Getting back on transition was not good in the first half.

    That looks like a negative statement.
