    Support other ISU teams!!!

    Everybody knows that ISU is down this year at its two biggest money makers (Football, Men's B-ball) but the past two years I have gone to alot of volleyball games, wrestling meets, women's games and the fact that we have a 50-79 record the past 3 years in football and basketball combined, makes me appreciate those sports much more. Show some support for the programs that have come along ways (women's b-ball and volleyball) during their respective seasons. Trust me it takes the sting out of losing so much

    Re: Support other ISU teams!!!

    they are not on TV and there is a reason the other two are the money makers - they are exciting to watch (or should be exciting to watch, haven't been too exciting lately).

    Womens BBall is on TV, i just watched Saturday night and there are other games that have been/will be on TV...plus I find the outside shooting of the womens team to be exciting.

    You obviously haven't watched very much volleyball in your lifetime, because it is an EXCELLENT game to watch.

    Re: Support other ISU teams!!!

    I could see your point there but the women's team plays the game so much more fundamentally sound than the men that it is kind of funny. I honestly think that the women's team could out-rebound the men's team because of the emphasis put on boxing out. Wrestling is always solid in Iowa and I think this years team is awesome. I personally don't enjoy wrestling all that much but it is a cheap form of entertainment.

    Re: Support other ISU teams!!!

    I agree that it is soooo much more enjoyable than MBB (I'll always enjoy FB more than any other, no matter what).

    The crowds at the WBB games and wrestling have been electric. You will feel awesome about being a Cyclone after going to those games. Hard working teams that don't quit (and win!).

    I agree 100%. The last few years the women's team has clearly been the better program but doesn't near the support that mbb does especially from the student body.

    Re: Support other ISU teams!!!

    Anybody else think maybe the athletic dept. released this announcement and another feel good story today:
    First NCAA Tournament Propels WBB Turnaround - Iowa State University Athletics Official Web Site - www.CYCLONES.com - Iowa State Cyclones Sports
    to get fans' minds off last nights memorable performance?

    Nothing wrong with trying I guess.
