    Confession....

    I have a confession to make.

    I'd like to admit that I've watched this video, on completely cranked up, at least 1-2 times per week minimum since the end of the season and it still gives me goosebumps and brings tears to my eyes.



    Such a magical season. Thank you Cyclone Nation! Can't wait for next year!

    Say 3 Hail Freddys and watch the Hoiball and Swagberg videos and your sins are absolved.

    Re: Confession....

    You're not alone.

    Just last night I rewatched the ISU/UNC game from the NCAA Tournament along with the last 10 minutes of the Michigan and Iowa games. What's awesome about that Michigan game is that it was the first big win for the team last season and I don't think anyone had any idea of the ride they were about to go on.

    My new favorite moment from the game against North Carolina is when there's about 1:00 left in the game and Naz drains another 3 and the camera cuts to Roy Williams absolutely losing his *****.


    "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."

    Are you addicted to the thrill? Is it a dangerous love affair?

    Re: Confession....

    Thank god for DVR. I can't get enough of watching the following games; Michigan, Iowa, Texas, Oklahoma State, the entire Big 12 tournament and North Carolina. I occasionally watch that Uconn game and just wonder what would have happened if Niles Griffey would have missed that three pointer with two minutes to go. So close. And the "Run this Town" video gets played 2-3 times a week for me, as well as the 5:30 minute season review video that Cyclones T.V. did.

    MORE! LOTS MORE! (i wish). Seems like a lot of those alley oops were between Ejim and Kane so I would guess there will be less. But who knows!

    I can't get that out of my head. I think we keep momentum and win if it happened.

    Re: Confession....

    The play at 1:02 is my favorite of the year.

    Yes I know Naz bailed us out for crucial wins .... but the play at 1:02 is pure awesome and really shows me what that team was about ... closeness, in sync, team ball, confidence.

    I had the exact same thought about the oops in that video--a lot of them were Kane-to-Ejim. That being said, Monte Morris is only improving and there will be some more big goons to throw it into.

    I guess my definition of goon and yours are pretty different. I see a goon on the BB floor as a huge guy who doesn't necessarily have great athleticism or basketball skills but instead relies on his height, girth and aggressive play (id est fouling because "they can't call them all") to be successful. Does the ISU roster really have multiple big goons?
