    What do we do to change our luck??

    Do we need to sacrifice some form of livestock outside The Jake?? I'm up for anything.

    Honestly, I actually laughed a little bit yesterday. That is not suppose to happen and wierd stuff like that happens to us all the time. If you think about it, it's kind of creepy.

    Let me know if any of you crazy college students think of anything. I'm willing to drive up for some sort of ritual.

    Re: What do we do to change our luck??

    Haha me too. I was laughing as I left the game. As in, can anyone else think of something else that can go wrong. You could only laugh that ending away or drink it away and I did both yesterday.

    Re: What do we do to change our luck??

    It's gotta be caused by of all the people who have pestered that guy with the weird shrine outside of Ames: http://www.cyclonefanatic.com/forum/...oring-isu.html

    From that same thread, maybe it's because of our involvement in the Manhattan Project. This means our curse is not only paranormal, but also nuclear.


    Winning cures all.

    Maybe its because Jack Trice died on the field and hes blaming Iowa State for it so he's haunting the stadium and cursed it.

    He died after a road game, and we named a home field after him

    We need to quarter a goat on the 50 and bury a swine in each end zone.

    Then we need to have it exorcised and blessed.

    Re: What do we do to change our luck??

    The bad luck thing is getting old, but at some level teams have to just play better to make their own luck. As I was leaving Arrowhead I was thinking that ISU gets the kick blocke, end of game; Iowa would get the kick blocked and the ball would fall into the hands of an Iowa player in the endzone, Iowa wins, film on ESPN at 6.

    Another 50,000+ for homecoming would be a great start. I would like to see us make the spirit walk a big deal that day. Signs, confetti, whatever. Losing is a powerful drug. When you are recovering (that's all of us, fans & players) the support group is never big enough. These kids are human and as such, subject to inspiration. Fortunately, that doesn't cost a lot, so let's give them as large dose as possible.

    Continue to becoming fundamentally sound, plug holes with good recruiting, and bust ***.

    Re: What do we do to change our luck??

    Or...lose the "It's bad luck"/ "we're Iowa State" attitude. How's that for a crazy idea?

    I like the idea................think JP would go for it?

    There is no such thing as luck, we need to create our own opportunities, then we'll get lucky
