    Expectations (or Lack Thereof)

    I never cease to be amazed by the low expectations many Cyclone fans have for our althetic programs (especially MBB).

    I could not believe a thread was started suggesting that maybe 15-17 wasn't too bad in light of how the Big 12 has done in the NCAA tourney. A few weeks ago I was shocked that over 60% of people voting on a poll I set up preferred a team with a worse record.

    I read a quote in today's IBD that I would like all Cyclone fans to read. It is from Orison Swett Marden:

    "All who have accomplished great things have had a great aim, have fixed their gaze on a goal which was high, one which sometimes seemed impossible."



    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.
