    Let the meltdowns begin since

    we lost to a team thats better then us on the road.

    -We know the defense was poor tonight
    -Cold shooting
    -Our achilles heal came to bite use in the ***, a stretch of time were we dont score, and the other team does
    -AT should never shoot ever.
    -FIRE GMAC!

    Just curious, is there ever a valid reason to 'meltdown' for the eternal optimists?

    Oh, I don't know. Seems to me a 3rd consecutive losing season might be reason to be a bit upset. As for the first post, ISU lost to a better team on the road. Given that ISU hasn't won a conference road game since '06 isn't that a blanket excuse in general?

    We should ask the meltdowners to limit their typing to just who sucks and who should be fired but spare us the reasons why as i doubt they have anything original to add to the discussion.

    Me too. I am as close as I have ever been to simply throwing in the towel though. These three seasons have easily been the most miserable BB I've watched since I started following ISU as a 14 year old kid.

    I've said this before, but how in the hell can you say you're a fan of a team, yet want to "throw in the towel"??

    Not singling you out...I just don't get it. The very definition of "fan" is an irrational and unconditional following of a team.

    Novels are fun.

    That said, I don't think I've read a novel in a couple of years. Maybe it's a good time to do it.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    As long as the eternal optimists agree to the same.

    We are young.
    A&M is better than we are.
    If only Wesley Johnson were still here.
    Wait til Gilstrap and Colvin are here.

    Pot meet kettle.
