    Well-written, as usual Brent. Looking forward to your write-up after we win tomorrow.

    Great job. Fix one/won though.

    Re: Blum: Hilton South Returns

    At one point during work when talking about Hilton South I almost said "The south will rise again!"

    Quickly put my foot in my mouth and got away from the conversation real fast.

    Outstanding article! Sounded like our crowd was the equal of KU's all night.

    "Iowa State has played 20 teams this season and has defeated all 20 at least once."

    VERY interesting nugget. Has this ever happened before? I'd be shocked if it has.

    I'm not ashamed that I read it.


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

    Seriously?! Talk about nitpicky...

    BTW fantastic article Blum (in its entirety)


    "I think that people are responding to someone standing up and saying this is what we want to do and let's not be afraid to go for it,'' Pollard said. "I think Iowa State has a very conservative, modest background. We never pound our chest and say `Let's do it.' It's OK to set a goal. You can't do it if you don't say what you want to do. You should be proud of it.''

    I know, you would think he would have caught the misspelling of Kuemper Arena first.

    We are blessed with Blum. I really like Rich, but I have to admit...can't wait til Blum takes over play by play for the ladies.
