    Student Section

    After seeing Nebraska's student section today I don't think we can complain about ours. I bet they had less than 300.

    Also went on the trip... Hilton is like heaven compared to that dump!!

    Also, it says alot about your student section when the road team brings more students than show up for their own home game!!

    Makes me think Cyclone Alley may not be all that bad of a thing...

    Re: Student Section

    I went on the trip too, and I completely agree with the above posts. The Bob Devaney Sports Center is horrible, and their fans are worse. I couldn't stop commenting during the game how embarrassing it must be to be a Nebraska Basketball fan. Wow. They spent most of the game in complete silence, wondering why that big glob of yellow up in the corner wouldn't quiet down so they could watch the game in peace...

    Yeah, especially when you ignore that student attendance has dropped off significantly since it's inception.

    Re: Student Section

    well what i found the funiest about the whole trip was their student section spent more time chanting back at us then chearing for their own team!! that and some 50 year old started talking smack to me about his 2-5 in conference team beating 2 teams without the full teams... they beat mizzou without 5 of their top 8 players and then our best player... both at home and both by less than 10... SOLID PROGRAM!!

    also heard a stat today that proves how great and how much tradition they have... 1 of very few teams to NEVER HAVE A NCAA TOURNY WIN!!!

    I think they're talking to all the non-students *****ing about the students not showing up, rather than wether Cyclone Alley is a good organization or not.


    Yes Cyclone Alley is probally harming our student section, but our hampered student section is still better than Nebraska's


    Oh we will fight, fight, fight for Iowa State,
    and may her colors ever fly!!!

    They won at Missouri. The rest of your points are valid, though.

    HA! Wasn't that great... You know we have some fan power when they turn away from the game to yell at us up in the corner. We did our jobs today. Good work everyone.

    Oh and one more thing for those of you not at the game, the Devaney Sports Center has such low attendance, birds are now inhabiting the premises.

    I agree. Nebbie's MBB following is trash. Especially because half of their fans want everything besides football to do poorly so that their football teams seem to be elite.

    I know that's what they're talking about, but saying that CA is "not that bad of a thing" when student attendance has dropped off as much as it has in the past 10 years is dumb at best.

    Highlight of my day was when they used the spotlight for introductions and I used my sign to block the light :)
