    Excessive intake of alcohol, we all know, kills brain cells, but naturally it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers.

    We ARE Iowa State. So, I wouldn't say odds are against it... I would say more like, It's impossible.

    Re: Remember the feeling...........

    Had class the morning Brakins announced his return... so I had to wait an hour or so until I got the news. Course at the time I was pretty pessimistic, so when I finally got a chance to get to an internet connection, I had the attitide of let's just get this over. Needless to say minutes later my smile had yet to leave my face.
    Hoping for a similar reaction tomorrow @ 315 or so.

    Re: Remember the feeling...........

    I'm doubting the HB presser is like Brackins. I sat on my computer waiting for him to come to the mic, then saw the press release on the website announcing he was staying. Just thought it was weird that everyone would know before he announced.

    Re: Remember the feeling...........

    I just remember when all that was happening all I heard was "no chance he's coming back" "sorry guys move on". People that just knew "for sure" he was leaving. This is a similar situation. Soon enough we will be able to either move on or let the fellow haters hear it.

    This reminds me of my father who managed to pass out from the injuries he sustained in the excitement of ISU beating KU in 96 to win the big 8 tournament. Evidently when he came through my stepmother was standing over him worried as hell. Of course all he wanted to know was if ISU had just beatin KU or was it a dream. When she affirmed the clone victory, he laid there on the ground in pain but a smile nonetheless.
    Needless to say I'll gladly continue the family tradition and sacrifice my body if it means HB signing tomorrow!

    I was staying with a family in Tecumseh, NE, who were hosting us as we examined pastoring their church. They saw the game on their DirectTV menu and asked if we'd like to watch.

    I told them that I'm a huge Cyclone fan, and if they were OK with that, then let's do it. I think I was the only one in the house that thought we could win that game. That was awesome!!

    Just for kicks, we should go ahead and beat Kansas again this year..........
