    Just got home from the game...

    A couple of things:

    We brought a lot of fans to this game, probably twice as many as NW had. When I was in the bathroom a NW fan came up to me while I was peeing and said, "wow, these cyclones sure do bring a lot of fans." I said, "of course we do!"
    Next, I was in line for beer and the lady serving me said, "I'm surprised at how many fans you guys bring along, they're all over the place." And I replied, "we always do!"

    I bought a $30 ticket and moved down the Cyclone cheering section. If would have known it was that easy to move down, I would have bought the $20 ticket and did the same thing. They had nobody checking tickets anywhere, except to get into the building. Other than that, you could have sat anywhere.

    Dendy wasn't dressed and was "slightly" limping around, but not really obvious. Just a slow walk and a tiny limp.

    If only NW didn't go on that little run in the second half, it would have been a different outcome. Disappointed in the outcome, but it was a good game. Just a few more shots drop and we win. NW is going to be a good team this year, especially that #24 Shurma (spelling???), who by the way is maybe the ugliest basketball player I've seen.

    Bring on UNI!

    Honestly i think one little free throw would have changed the game.
    When we went on a run at the start of second half. Brackins fouled and missed both free throws. I think if he woulda made one it could have been totaly different!

    Whenever you have close games like this, 1 more shot of any kind could have changed the outcome.
    Soembody mentioned that our poor free throw shooting will cost us games this year, and this would be an example of 1.

    Wasn't their a certain forward that played for Iowa State a few years ago who had the distinction of being considered one of the "ugliest" college BB players?

    lol wouldn't call him ugly...just has a lot of acne. I'd say he looks more annoying than anything else. Kind of like a nerd who shouldn't be playing basketball but is somehow good(?)

    yeah, annoying might be a better word. They showed a close up of his face at one point during the game on the big screen and I cringed to myself and then found it really disturbing to even look at.
