    Top 10 upsets in the tourny on espn

    ISU losing to Hampton was only #2, so that is some good news, at least we weren't number #1. I still remember where I was at when that loss went down. I was the only ISU fan at my high school, I tried to get my parents to let me call in sick, that next day was brutal.

    I was punching my bedroom wall listening to Pete Taylor. I had already been sent to my room for my excessively violent outbursts during the first 35 minutes. The next day was rough, but not terrible, as I went to high school in Minnesota, and there were no obnoxious Hawk fans.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    I had forgotten how close that lay-up was to going in. Should have been the game winner....

    For some reason, we didn't have school the day after that game. I didn't have to fake being sick.

    It was spring break (if you were going to Iowa State at the time) - I watched the horror on my parents' TV set.

    Lucky for you. I was the lone Cyclone fan at an NCAA party in my hometown of Cedar Rapids with no less than 25 Iowa fans. Miserable.

    Of course, none of them actually went to Iowa which only pisses me off more, but that's another rant for another day. You know the saying, "What do Iowa and Iowa State fans have in common? None of them went to the University of Iowa.".

    Re: Top 10 upsets in the tourny on espn

    It sucks that it was at our expense, but if it happened to anyone else, that Hampton win would have been pretty cool. A huge underdog and holding onto the win because a star player had a layup just roll out. That's what March Madness is all about.

    The really crappy thing is we haven't had any success since to get that taste out of our mouth.

    It's probably a good thing there isn't negative rep anymore.

    If I remember correctly, Dan Patrick at ESPN picked that Iowa State team to win the national championship in his bracket. He was a little unhappy about that loss, too.

    I agree. It would have been an awesome game if we weren't the team being upset.

    I think Iowa fans could/should be able to say that about the NW State game.


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