    Laughable Article on ISU

    http://www.rantsports.com/ncaa-baske...wa%20StateGrid

    First thread start here, sorry for the long link and no summary as I'm @ work doing this on my phone. He brings up maybe 2 valid points but otherwise claims we are overrated. Light him up in the comments. He also wrote an article claiming Wiggins is the best player in the WORLD. Laughable at best. Please let me know CONSTRUCTIVE criticism so I can clean my next thread post up please and thank you.

    My hate is not limited to just the Hawkeyes, I have plenty to go around for the Jayhawks and just Hawks in general.

    Re: Laughable Article on ISU

    Here's a real link.

    Not worth getting riled up over. Writer says our rebounding and lack of depth are concerns moving forward. He is a Washington Capitals (NHL) writer so college basketball seems to be outside of his comfort zone.

    Just an uninformed opinion that we don't need to waste time with... But this is Cyclone Fanatic so it's time to call for a boycott.

    Re: Laughable Article on ISU

    When you are claiming a team is overrated and using close games against teams that are probably going to the tourney as your determining factor you truly are not a close follower of college basketball. Every other team in the country has a loss or a "close win" vs. a team worse than Boise St.

    Oh, and throw in a clear grammatical error in your article title and you're good to go.

    Add in our slow starts and need to go down by 10 points before we realize we are the better team and he may be on to something there lol

    Re: Laughable Article on ISU

    I know a guy who writes for that site. The more people that click on the link and read the article. The more the author gets paid. So instead of writing how great someone is. They will write about how they are not that great. Getting fan base riled up to go to the site.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    Re: Laughable Article on ISU

    Well, when your top 15 and undefeated some people are going to look at us and say, "ohh they aren't that good, they are overrated." Without ever actually watching us play. We play a unique style and despite not having a big man, we've still been like top 20 in rebounding the last 3 years. People are going to attack you, and find bad things to say about your team when your good, it's called envy.

    Yeah, the lack of a true center has really killed us against teams like KU, Baylor, Okie State, Ohio State, etc. these last few years.

    Our rebounding is a concern when, according to ESPN, we're the 10th best rebounding team in the nation. Umm, ok...

    From this moment on, I will never buy a Washington Capitals ticket, not even to burn.

    Re: Laughable Article on ISU

    All legit concerns he listed in the article, but they are just concerns. Our team has one thing that most teams don't-- TWTW. This team has been money when the game is on the line, and hopefully that will continue to be the case.


    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.”

    Terrible read, not for sure what to say about it. Really uninformed and what the hell was he writing about college hoops in Hawaii concerning Iowa if he's a NHL guy, something smells rotten here; closet hawk fan? More likely a a KU fan.

    He seems to write a few ISU articles and uses DeAndre Kane pictures. He is a beat writer for Washington Capitals so maybe he had Marshall ties.

    Re: Laughable Article on ISU

    This joker probably just bet on the Clones like I did and was done in by the put back with 0.2 seconds left for a Boise back door cover. He was upset and wrote an article about our rebounding (which lead to the put back). I was upset and drank a beer before going to sleep.
