    Anyone else avoiding Facebook for a few days?

    I just don't think I can stand to see all the, "it still is a hawkeye state" crap.

    That's kind of like asking if you can avoid life for the next few days... Too many Hawk fans everywhere.

    The primary reason I don't flip crap before this game is so I don't have to receive much of it after the game.

    Works wonders.

    Re: Anyone else avoiding Facebook for a few days?

    No. If your Facebook friends are from anyplace other than Iowa they could care less about the Iowa State - Iowa rivalry.

    Put it this way, tons of people in Colorado think the world revolves around the Colorado - Colorado State University football outcome. However, it means next to nothing once you leave the borders of Colorado.

    Ditto for the Iowa - Iowa State game. If either Iowa or Iowa State want to be successful they and their fans are going to need to realize that Conference games are far more significant than these in-state rivalry games.

    Exactly. I actually don't care about trash talking even if we win. I just want their fans to keep quiet.

    Re: Anyone else avoiding Facebook for a few days?

    I stirred up a decent amount about this game. I didn't get back as much as I've earned. Yet.
    I'm not going to avoid it. Them's the breaks when you stir it up.


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

    I always chuckle that this game "means nothing" to my friends who are Hawk fans, yet all their statuses are about it.

    I don't think I'll be watching "Hawkeye Sound-off" tonight. If I do I think it would be awesome if as many Cyclone fans would call in, or e-mail, and talk about Pro football or nascar, MLB, or anything but the game just to overshadow all of the "talkeye" fans.

    I think I would just say "Well, we have to worry about trying to win the Big 12, so enjoy your Super Bowl victory"

    Re: Anyone else avoiding Facebook for a few days?

    I've got two brothers that could have rubbed my face in it, but they kept their perspective pretty well. Both recognized that ISU helped a lot with the way things went yesterday. We'll see how the die-hards are at work tomorrow, however . . .

    I think you helped feed a few on my page as well.

    Still hasn't been too bad, it is to be expected with this game, win or lose.

    You definitely don't have to worry about winning the Big 12.
