    8 months of depression is underway

    I can't stand it... basketball is ok... wrestling is ok.... but even when our football team is terrible I am energized and fired up for every Saturday. There is football season and depression season... this always happens to me after the National Championship. Am I the only one?

    Only 7 months about 25 days (ish)...

    Re: 8 months of depression is underway

    Maybe we need a countdown clock or would that just be depressing?

    Cheer up, you still have about a month of football in the form of NFL ( and yes I know that it isn't nearly as good, but it is better than nothing).

    Yeah - I know. The NFL is fun with the playoffs... so I'll survive. Maybe I'll come up for a Barnstormers game just to 'get my fix'.

    Everything els is just kinda

    A countdown clock isn't a bad idea.... Its is at least a reminder that it is coming back.

    Good news - I have a series of extensive football interviews with the ISU coaching staff that will be on the site over the next few weeks. Hope that helps at least a little.

    Re: 8 months of depression is underway

    Ther is always national signing day as the one bright spot in your 8 months of hell...


    Gene Smith, 1993-2000. 7 years, 6 NCAA's, 1 bowl game. Revenue sports postseason participation 50%. Good.
    Bruce Vandevelde, 2000-20005. 5 years, 4 bowl games, 2 NCAA's, 2 NIT's. Postseason participation 80%. Better.
    Jamie Pollard, 2005-. 4 years. 1 bowl game, 0 NCAA's, 0 NIT's. Postseason participation: 13%. The next big step.

    My ignore list: splitidentity, tarheelhawk,superdorf, clones_jer. That is all.

    You also got spring ball and the spring game. That is only 3 months away.

    Re: 8 months of depression is underway

    Feel your pain. On the flipside, I gain some of the energy back due to signing day.


    Never argue with an idiot. They will bring you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

    Re: 8 months of depression is underway

    Judging by the performance of our basketball team today vs NDSU, I think depression is the only logical response.

    I am encouraged that the wrestling team seems much better after getting rid of that loafer coach Cael Sanderson
