    Boo Birds

    Just wondering what kind of play/decision it will take before the first set of Boo's are heard in JTS Saturday?

    My money is we punt the ball away on TT's 40 yard line on 4th and inches!

    If Iowa State loses, that is when the booze will come out.

    Thats my hope. The team doesnt deserve the boos, the coaching staff does. Unfortunately its not the staff that gets the message.

    Re: Boo Birds

    I can't think of a scenario, barring them walking up and down the aisles tripping old ladies, that would get me to boo my Cyclones. They're my own damn team.

    Re: Boo Birds

    First offensive series: 3 & out. Two zone reads for no gain topped with an incomplete pass. Thousands (that may be too generous- perhaps a few hundred) of people griping & moaning, though not necessarily booing, sounds like booing.

    Re: Boo Birds

    I wouldn't ever boo the Cyclones! This is my school, and they are kids representing my school.

    In reality, I can't boo any college athlete unless they just act like a complete H******!

    It is the cyclone way. It's one tradition we're really good at....plus it totally ticks off KU and EUI fans so it's a win win IMO.

    Good point, because it's the coaches who have quit out there on the field, not the actual players in the uniforms.

    That said, no one deserves to be booed.

    I'd also really prefer that there be no reason for boos. Like, say, the Cyclones who actually put some points on the board making a reappearance.

    Boos will happen when KCCI says the current temp and weather forecast.

    Re: Boo Birds

    Can we get tarps with fans printed on them?

    A coach should put them in position to win and motivate them. If they are out there with a ****** attitude getting penalties...have at it. I am yet to see the players totally quit, they just get worn down.
