    Meltdowns, etc.

    I apologize if this has been posted elsewhere, but I thought this was an interesting article on gocyclones.com:

    Meltdowns

    Other than negative rep and the season ticket counter, I think he covered most of it.

    Completely agree. The older I get, the less of a "fanatic" I become because the players seem to look younger and younger to me and anymore I see them as kids and I refuse to tear them down.

    not a bad read, players shouldn't read into what fans say. most people who say stuff like that never played a snap of football beyond hs and have absolutely no idea what they are talking about. be a man and get over what you read or hear about. dont let one person or a handful of idiots ruin your life. if this is something that truely bothers you as a player, well good luck after college, becuase life is a ****-ton harder than what he read about himself online!

    Re: Meltdowns, etc.

    Great flippin article that is 100% on the money.

    Too bad some of our fans are too thick headed to understand this. All fans think they have the right to totally belittle and talk down kids that are playing football for "FREE" (yes I understand they get a full ride).

    I thought our fans were better then that, but for some reason, that Hawkeye fan trait is kicking in on most.

    I hated the talk about LJ and having him kicked off the team. I hate how we hear about a recruit and say, "well, he should be good on the bench. I really can't wait till we get this other guy"

    Looks like players and potential players all read message boards...

    So to the Monty's of the board and so many others I could name, please stay classy.

    I also saw on a cyclone message board that you can buy Name Brand shoes at discount prices.. based on some of the threads started.

    When I see articles like this, it just makes me hate the French even more.

    Re: Meltdowns, etc.

    I'm guessing this is the thread he was referencing:

    http://www.cyclonefanatic.com/forum/...rth-hicks.html

    Some people obviously go over the edge sometimes, but the majority of the comments on that thread were positive.

    EDIT: I guess I echo the sentiments of ISU BET.

    True, I think posters need to think about what they say about these kids. But I also think the players need to learn to ignore comments like that on MESSAGE BOARDS.

    Any idiot with a computer can post anything they want. And most of them are still upset from not playing enough on their JV team.
