    More cursed, Cubs or Cyclones?

    Let me know what you think. Are the Chicago Cubs or the Cyclones more cursed at this point in time?

    *I can't figure out how to make it a poll with a multiple choice so you'll have to do it the old fashioned way.

    The Cubs are only cursed in one sport, ISU is cursed in multiple. Have to go with ISU on this one.

    We are, no doubt about it. Yeah, the Cubs can't win a world series, but they've put together some damn good seasons. We just suck all over the place.

    Re: More cursed, Cubs or Cyclones?

    Do people truly believe in curses? I guess I would think they were somewhat naive if they did.

    I belive your results are typically a result of what you put in. People have made a lot of mistakes in both organizations that have caused them to be in the position they are in.

    I'll also get ****** when i see people around here feeling sorry for them selves. Get over it people. Grow a pair and be a man.

    Re: More cursed, Cubs or Cyclones?

    Cubs, they havent won a championship in over 100 years, we atleast have national championships in the last 100 years. National league titles can be compared to conference titles, but no overall for them...plus I hate the Cubs so they are at the bottom.

    The Cubs have greater resources, a bigger market, more money, more fans... better coverage...etc., etc... so I would say the Cubs.

    The Cyclones are a close second.

    Angry Re: More cursed, Cubs or Cyclones?

    Heck, I am not sure who is more cursed, the Cub or the Cyclones, but I sure am getting sick of it. It makes me wonder why I even like sports.

    At least the cubs aren't cursed with a shortage of fans, especially deep pocketed ones.

    Re: More cursed, Cubs or Cyclones?

    This is how I see it:

    We, plain and simple get the short end of the stick: not a lot of money, we do the best we can, show potential, then get kicked in the balls.

    The Cubs have a lot of money, and they still find a way to suck at the end.

    Cubs cursed, ISU screwed from the start.

    Neither. Speaking soley for the Cubs, there are/is a myriad of reasons other than a "curse" that speak to why they haven't been to the World Series since 1945.

    Agreed. Stupid decisions cause bad luck. In ISU case, for example:

    * Screwed John Cooper over. Cooper played football at Iowa State. Was brought to Iowa State as an assistant with the promise of taking over as head coach if and when Earle Bruce left. AD hired Donnie Duncan instead. ISU football program goes into the tank. Cooper goes on to replace Earle Bruce at Ohio State.

    * Screwed Dan Gable over. Harold Nichols wanted to pass his legacy on to his long-time top assistant coach instead of Gable. Gable goes to Iowa and builds a dynasty.

    * Screwed Walden over. Steve Lester, ISU's top receiver in 1989, had grade problems. Was told by one ISU administrator that if Lester took and passed a summer course, he could play in 1990. Lester took the course and passed only to be told that he still couldn't suit up in 1990. The move showed no support for ISU athletics or Walden.

    ISU went 6-5 in 1989, won just four games in 1990. Lost to Minnesota by 4 points, to Iowa by 10.

    Just a couple of examples. Some would lump letting McCarney go was a bad decision as well. I don't believe that. Had McCarney let some of his assistant coaches go that were dragging down the program, he would still be there.

    The only way that isu is cursed is because they dont have any fans er enough paying patrons and thus dont have enough money to keep up with the Jones'es er u of i of this world...
