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

    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.

    "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.

    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.
