    The Curse of Natty Light

    Some of us remember where we were the morning that someone called and told us to turn on ESPN. We turned it to see our BB coach holding a can of Natty Light at a college party. A sad and low day in Cyclone athletics. The weeks that followed had even more low points. Everything about the whole situation was mismanaged. Since that event ISU has had bad luck, weird things happen, things going the wrong way, and trouble finding wins. I am not one to be about curuses and all that but at some point you have to wonder. This not sure about Lucca situation is yet another bad luck bad deal or whatever you want to call it for ISU.

    Does this mean I have to stop drinking it?

    Re: The Curse of Natty Light

    I think the curse started long before the Natty Light issue. Missing an extra point to beat NU back in the '70s, the travelling call against Sam Hill in the Big 12 championship, the last few minutes of the MSU ISU elite 8 game, the fluke shot by UCLA over Cato's outstretched arm. (Shoulda been a charge called first too) The missed field goal the went over the upright against Alabama in the bowl game...

    Re: The Curse of Natty Light

    Maybe we need to bury a case of natty light outside JTS just to make sure we have a chance to beat A&M.

    Better empty out the cans in the hole. We're talking about ISU and college kids here. If it's not guarded 24/7, it'll be dug up and drank.

    You just made me relive some of my worst moments ever. Might as well throw in the missed field goal by Anderson for the Vikings, the Red Sox coming back from 0-3, the World Series against the Diamond Backs. I need a drink.

    Missing FGs to get into Big XII title game twice! Not to mention, if we made more FGs during the year, we already would have been in.
