    That said, just what exactly is *****-slaped?

    Slaping sounds to me like some obscure Olympics sport where a country you never heard of - like Tonga or Nauru - wins the gold.
    Sort of an Ike and Tina Turner kinda slap...or for the younger generation...a Chris/Rhianna sorta slap...

    How about a Rick James slap?

    I agree, it could happen.

    JMHO, but I guess part of the reason people aren't as jacked up at 19-5 as they were earlier in the season is because since starting 14-0, the team is 5-5; so .500 ball the last 10 games. Yeah, I know, its the Big XII and it's a grind. But so is the Big Dance. Unless ISU closes out the conference season pretty strong and/or gets to the title game of the conference tourney, you're going to have your fair share of fans without lofty expectations.
    Spot on.

    My expectations are low until ISU learns to focus for 40 minutes and put someone away. Hasn't happened since UMKC. For that reason Im terrified of the first round.

    Ridiculous, this team will have it together come tourney time, I usually lean pessimistic but this year I'm not worried about making it to round of 32.

    Also, I second the motion that Hampton come across as *******
