    the players

    how hard is a loss like this on the players? i am obviously taking it extremely bad, but how about the team? i was listening to the locker room show with john walters, and he was interviewing garrin and it sounded like garrin was sobbing a little bit. and i don't blame him a bit. damn this is a tough one to swallow. i hope they bounce back next week and have a good game. for some of these guys their career has to have felt a little like an episode of the twilight zone.

    Re: the players

    Wouldn't worry about that. Coach Rhoads will move on and have them ready to play.

    Re: the players

    i dont doubt that cpr will motivate these guys with the way things went down today, but for the upperclassmen, it's gotta be a punch to the gut. im sure they were banking on teh fact that if they won today they had a realistic chance to go to a bowl game. not saying that it can't happen now, but our chances took a serious blow

    Re: the players

    Actually it will be interesting to see how the team responds to this. A win at KU would be a nice way to soothe the pain.

    Re: the players

    It's not just the upperclassmen, it looked like Schwartz had some tears as he left the field on the TV broadcast. I have a feeling though that CPR is going to have these guys motivated for every game this year. I like the way our D is playing & I still fell like our offense is going to look better and better as everybody gets comfortable with Herman's system.

    Re: the players

    i'm glad they are crying. not because they are sad obviously, but it shows that they are investing as much emotion into winning as most of us fans are. i was close to crying myself after today.

    Re: the players

    I know for a fact that it is demoralizing to the players.
    You start to question whether all the time and practice is even worth it.

    Thats when the coaching staff steps in and shows you your priorities and
    lets you know that all is not lost.

    That would be what I expect from this staff.

    Re: the players

    They will bounce back. It was heartbreaking no doubt about it. Hopefully it builds hunger and determination. None of these guys were on the heartbreak teams from the past. They dont have the feelings we have being long time fans. Not to say they are carefree but most were young enough that they dont have the scars we have. And God knows we have plenty from plenty of sports.

    Re: the players

    They showed a lot of heart on the last drive. I think that this team will stick together. The difference in the game was clearly A-Rob. I like our chances of snagging three more wins before the end of the season.

    Re: the players

    i think you almost, as an ISU fan, have to expect things like this to happen, and move on... hopefully the players do the same

    Re: the players

    Our chances of going to a bowl game are slim. We just dont have the make up and miss too many opportunities or give up to many opportunities. Too many people are looking at going bowling when we should just focus on the next game and get that W. The bowl game will take care of itself. I think next year we have a better chance even with OU and TU on he schedule
