Just when everyone thought it was safe to take their nut cups off....
I'm a Cyclone fan. Mine is permanently affixed.
"I watch the Cyclone players and they look like guys who grew up fighting for everything they got, on and off the court. In a word, men. I look at the Iowa players and I assume when they were kids they played soccer in leagues that didn't keep score to avoid hurting anyone's feelings. There is not one single leader on this team. It's a group of high school friends playing a pickup game at the YMCA and maybe they will keep score, maybe not, because they are just happy to be there."
We weren't mature enough in this one. Lots of little mistakes led into a bad loss. Hopefully next year we don't lose to badly. Hopefully they look back and use this as motivation to improve themselves. Devastating for the leaders of the team, lots of hard work down the drain. The only question is if they will get back to this stage next year.
I'm not sure next year will look any better as I think they bring the hammer down hard on us. I've heard insider reports (sorry for posting premium content) that we are getting the equivalent of the Death Penalty for all of our student code of conduct violations stemming from this loss.
