    Never Again

    After reading the boards this week, I will never, ever, make fun of a fan base for their infighting and meltdowns ever again. No matter what anyone says, all fanbases are generally the same, some just get to see more wins than others.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    The thing I like about the Cyclone fan base is even though we argue here, come game day we all share the same optimizium that we will come out ahead.

    People are people regardless of what team colors they wear.

    Until we lose...then certain people will come out screaming we need to fire the coaches. And that our players suck.

    It's happened to Chizik in Year 1 and its happened to McDermott in Year 1 and Year 2.

    I would love to, and I love to see links posted to other team's boards as well when they are all ******** about something, but what has been posted here in the last 48 hours rest assured has provided much enjoyment for our opponents.
    You can really see what people are about when something like this happens.

    Heck...it has provided entertainment value for myself and I'm a Clone fan. As someone else said earlier. Hard to take your eyes off of a trainwreck.

    Except for hawkeye fans. Just because it feels so good to see their misery and taste their tears....

    Myself... Not even close to melting down, though I'm pitting out pretty good....

    Devoted ISU fans that are hurt/frustrated/confused/dejected/etc. over this development?

    I mean, if this place wasn't in meltdown mode over this, I'd be really worried about our fanbase and the level of support we could provide to achieve Pollard's vision.

    I'm speaking of the ripping of players, coaches, other posters, etc... Lots of personal attacks going on.

    We are very happy to see other teams go through this and act like it never happens here.

    Re: Never Again

    "We" would be referring to not all. I've noted the same thing you have before when threads get going here poking fun at the meltdowns elsewhere - namely the Hawks. That didn't go well when I brought it up - yet here we are. :)

    Like I said, I'm not disappointed this place is a madhouse - I'd expect no less from a passionate fanbase that wants to win. I am disappointed that there are many errant rumors floating around and very few people are willing to put legs under them for support. If I believed everything I've read here recently, I'd hate Greg for being a complete jerk to our players and Wes for being a sniveling, whiny little brat.

    Hope it does not happen in McD Year 3 also. We do not need a McC buildout to perfection - we need to improve quicker.

    The kentucky board already has Wesley signed, sealed , delivered to Billy G. They know how to jump on top of a bucking steer.
