    remember drake and uni...

    as in the past...we have been spoiled as cyclones fans...it seems that we take the highs with the lows...we get drilled by CU then we nail kansas on the road, that's kinda how it goes. i'm just glad that we can watch every game this year and know we have a chance at winning. remember, we are crazy, ******, hardcore fans...we have been there in the past, we will be here in 20 years...these guys are kids and are playing for our beloved isu...it's all good...and it's all about cyclone love...

    PS...big ups to all the towers people, now that it doesn't exist

    I don't remember being spoiled as a Cyclone fan very often. This team had no business losing to the laughing stock of major conference basketball tonight.

    This was a sad night. Dodie sure let his Brewster sidekick outshine him tonight.

    lol, well thats your problem, not mine.

    I expect conference titles and elite 8's every once in awhile. Winning 1 NCAA tournament game in 5 years doesn't cut it for me.

    Re: remember drake and uni...

    It seems over the last several years that we often play to the level of our competition. Even though we are a new team this year with a lot of question marks and growing pains, we should have beaten CU by 15 points tonight playing at a just an 80-85% level. After seeing CU play they are truly a terrible team. As easy as we'll see in the Big 12 this year.

    With time I expect Greg to get this team to consistently play at a higher level of performance regardless of who we are playing.

    In general I really don't mind losing that much, it's crappy play that really bothers me. If we play at a very high level and lose because the other team is just better or played lights out, I consider it to still be a good game. However, even in games we win, when we play like crap, it's really disappointing. Tonight I was very disappointed.

    With that said, I feel really good about the future of ISU's MBB program.

    We played selfish tonight. We were exposed that we can be poor shooters from the perimeter if Mike cannot hit. We easily could have won. We played like freshmen. We need to get pumped up right away as KSU is one of our must wins.

    If these guys don't be K-State, those 5-11 predictions are looking pretty good. The game tonight has almost inspired me to attend Saturday now more than before. Clearly these guys need a good crowd and any edge they can get.

    Even the elite 8 team lost at CU. We've always had a tough time at CU. However, 1 of the best all-time Cyclone moments came when Fred Hoiberg threw an inbounds bounce pass from underneath the CU basket to Justus Thigpen for the game winning shot. I think I still have the videotape of that game...

    WTF????? Just how long have you been an Iowa State fan????

    We have been to the Elite 8 once, and won TWO conference championships in the last SIXTY (60!!!!!) years. We have been to the Sweet 16 TWICE, we won ONE Big 8 tournament, and ONE Big 12 tournament.

    Did you bother reading my post at all? I said ONCE IN AWHILE I expect to see ISU basketball to accomplish something. I'm not saying we should win national titles and make sweet 16s every year, but goodness is it too much to ask that is happens once in awhile? I don't consider myself "spoiled" to be a Cyclone basketball fan. This program is capable of being a perenial ncaa tourney team and having the occasional breakout season. Why fire Wayne Morgan if you don't expect anything worth the crap? I am hopeful GMAC gets us to the level of an Oklahoma State or so, is that so damn wrong??
