I guess he just rarely stresses the concerns as much as he highlights the hype.

    Yeah because being optimistic is such a bad thing. **** him right? You're a joke.

    If he's critical, in situations such as today, are you going to bail on this website?

    You do realize that these are the same loser hawk trolls that show up everytime things are bad. The good news is that they will disappear in November, and not return until fall.

    No he can be as critical as he wants, but I understand why he usually puts a positive spin on things. What the hell is your point?

    I have no problem with this either. I consider Chris, and Blum, and Gray, and others associated with this site, or part of Cyclone radio broadcasts, to really be extensions of the ISU sports information department. Just keep that in mind and don't get upset.

    I was at the game and it was a terrible game, frustrating to watch, but some of you fair weather fans make me sick. You same people probably talk **** about hawk fans ******* about their team when times are tough. Get real.

    My point is pretty simple, really. You, me and everyone else on this board is going nowhere. We are all Cyclones, no matter how awful it is. We aren't going anywhere. Why make excuses, in such a situation, when no excuse makes sense?

    But then we'll beat Toledo and CPR will give a passionate postgame speech and all will be right in the Cyclone world
    If CPR has a 2 or 3 win season this year, this brings backs memories of the Cizzlack.

    Re: Chris Williams making excuses left and right

    This is ridiculous. If you don't like the content published on this site then do us all a favor and pay the subscription fee to another ISU fan site. You are pathetic and embarrassing.

    Chris, not that you need it, but keep doing what you are doing. Hopefully it will weed out the losers we don't want here.

    Re: Chris Williams making excuses left and right

    Why are some of you on here relying on a website to determine how our football team should be? It's not like CW came out and said this team is going to the playoffs. This team returned most players intact and it was reasonable to assume we would make a small step forward with a healthy SR and farniok, which is exactly how CW has presented his view.

    on a side note, the development off season of our team is almost entirely on Yancy. I'm tired of anyone defending him...he has to go. You telling me if Chris Doyle were here that our oline looks like the way they did? No way.
