    I think your rationality is broken.

You and your friends had this wonderful idea of jumping on Cyclone Fanatic and pretending to be a completely irrational fan upset about people not cheering good enough, and your character is devoid of empathy, perspective, or the ability to think rationally?

    Perhaps there's alcohol involved?

    too funny, you got me. I know cyclone erik is a loyal cyclone. I was only trying to present the side of the debate of the crappy crowd. which normally i agree is a stupid argument, but today, i wasn't so sure.

    In all seriousness what do you expect? You can't have an insane, raucous crowd EVERY game, but you especially can't have one against Texas tech, a team we have no rivalry or relationship with, with little on the line, when you blow an 18 point lead.

    Pretty sure half the campus was there with me at Student Health getting repaired after Friday's death trap performance. If walking is your means of transportation anywhere near the ISU campus, staying home isn't a bad idea at all.
    Boo hoo. Drive 3 hours each way and then have to walk. I made it, quit making lame excuses. I didn't see anything about 16k students being admitted at Student Health lol..... Nice try though.

    Re: I hope hilton....

    Today was my first BB game in two years (I know, I know) but I was sort of shocked how apathetic people were. We are the #11 team in the nation and the whole crowd reminded me of a McDermott era game...seriously. As for the snow, I left the house at 9:00 and drove 2 1/2 hours in it and made it just fine. I guess the students a few blocks away couldn't make it. The upper level student section is a joke. I just paid $180 for four tickets to a game with empty seats all over...

    That said it was so awesome being back in Hilton and it was also my kids first time ever and they were just wide eyed the whole game...couldn't believe they were actually at Hilton after watching every game on tv. Fun day.

    But the students can show up though, right? I think we can all agree on that. The tech game is not going to be as crazy as the KU game, but we should have a full student section.

    If you guys have such strong feelings about this, why don't you do something proactive about it instead of getting into cyclical arguments with people who aren't the problem?

    Crap when is practice? We better get there too so they can practice with energy. Isn't the saying "practice like you play"?

    I have finally found the root of our issues. It isn't stupid, unlucky, or bad shots/plays that have cost us the games we have lost. It has been the fans not giving the team energy!

    Okay that was very sarcastic. I understand they feed off of fan energy to a point but they still have to make the plays so that is a moot point imo.
