    What We Need

    Is a bunch of Jake Trice's.

    Remember last year when this was the theme of the basketball season? Jack Trice's message to himself on a sheet of paper before his first college game in which he died after playing through a broken collarbone.

    "Everyone is expecting me to do big things. I will. My whole body and soul are to be thrown recklessly about the field tomorrow. Every time the ball is snapped, I will be trying to do more than my part. On all defensive plays I must break through the opponents' line and stop the play in their territory. Beware of mass interference. Fight low, with your eyes open and toward the play. Watch out for crossbucks and reverse end runs. Be on your toes every minute if you expect to make good.”

    Trice's reckless sense of determination is what I would love to see on Saturdays.

    I think this should be Iowa State's version of Notre Dame's "Play Like Champions Today" plate that everyone slaps on the way out of the locker room. A picture of Jack Trice with the words below it of "Everyone is expecting me to do big things. I WILL." (Maybe this is allready out there, does anyone know?)

    Until you find something worth dying for, you're not really living.

    This is awesome. Great idea! Have you sent this to JP?

    I was wondering about that after I made the post. I rethought it and wondered if it maybe wasn't the basketball promotion. But still.

    I'll send it to JP though if you think it is a good idea.

    Re: What We Need

    It was on the basketball poster last year featuring Tasheed Carr. Yeah, we all expected big things out of everyone on that team.

    Re: What We Need

    Actually, they had 4 different posters with that saying on it, not just Carr. The players were Stinson, Carr, Blalock, and Clarke. Kind of crazy that only one of the featured players from last years promotion is back on the team this year.
