    So would all the people...

    who are so upset with this loss have been happier if we had made the XP and then lost in OT? That kick wouldn't have won the game for us, we still would have had more work to do.

    By making the XP, at least ISU would have garnered additional opportunity to win by completing a basic routine football play, which would have provided me some additional comfort...

    Re: So would all the people...

    We would have won in overtime due to the fact that we had all the momentum...see the UNLV game from last year.

    That's a big assumption, and a pretty negative one.

    I wasn't really implying that we WOULD have lost, just wondering if some would still have the doomsday attitude.

    Re: So would all the people...

    Nothing is ever good enough for a lot of the people on here. Even in a victory, this message board is full of naysayers who will nitpick the team apart. Its a wonder that people still enjoy coming here.

    I hate the loss just as much as the next guy, but guess what...the sun did rise this morning, at least I think it did. Life will go on. We have a new coach and I personally think that things will get better. I personally think that if we would've made the kick and lost in OT, things would've been even worse.

    What the hell?

    Yes, I would have love for us to make the kick and lose in OT. It would have made me completely forget about the 2 back-to-back fumbles in the 2nd half, the missed tackles and poor execution in the passing game.

    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    I think it would've been a tad less demoralizing...probably wouldn't be any happier though.

    Hypothetical. And past tense. No use worrying about it.

    Some posters are never happy with anything. Don't you know that the sun came up today?

    Re: So would all the people...

    One positive of losing on the extra point is that people can't really blame CPR for the loss as much.
    If ISU had lost in OT, there would have been more room to blame play calling and coaching.

    We had BIG MO! I liked our chances going in OT.

    Optimism is contagious. Pass it on. 10-2!
