    Curse of John Walters...

    John Walters lost the game for ISU again. <sarcasm>

    But seriously, ever since he's started announcing ISU games, we always have bad breaks and lose by crazy stuff and nothing is changing. Either that or we are terrible at MBB and Football. Thought I'd look at another angle. *shrug*

    I think his first football season was 2003, was it not? Brutal way to start.

    Pete Taylor had to earn his stripes before he saw some decent football/basketball...

    Re: Curse of John Walters...

    I would hate to be Walters. Go on the radio and TV every day and try to sell this ****. Being a ISU fan takes 20 years off your life.

    Re: Curse of John Walters...

    Well, at least the WBB appears to know how to win games. Maybe Bill Fennelly should help out.

    I wouldn't doubt it. Listening to the FB game Saturday, he sounded very exhausted/frustrated.

    Tonight, you could kind of tell he could see it coming.

    Re: Curse of John Walters...

    Can't lay this one on John. I've been a Cyclone fan since about 1980, and there was certainly no shortage of disappointment in the pre-Walters era.

    I was going to say...Iowa State has been finding ways to lose long before Walters came into the picture.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    Re: Curse of John Walters...

    Maybe.............. we had a young team on their first road game (Hawaii no less) and they played poorly at times therfore loosing by one point. I did not listen but it sounds like they overcame a very slow start and fought hard but gave up a bit in the very end. Not surprising.

    Yeah, but they make up for it by making stretches of 3 and 2 hours in the fall and winter seem like days...
