    "Exceeding expectations" from the mouth of the Strength and Conditioning coach.

    In my estimation this is another good result of going to a bowl game, any bowl game.


    "There are five real good recruits in the state. We got three of them. One couldn’t get into school, and the other went to (the University of) Iowa...which is about the same thing." - Coach Johnny Orr

    Re: Williams Blog: Wear gold tomorrow!

    Why in the hell is the Kansas game "Golden Rules"??? That is usually reserved for the likes of Nebraska, for good reason.

    Kansas's primary color is Blue, with splashes of red here and there. Nebraska on the other hand is dominantly Red. Hell Texas Tech would be a better team to yellow out than Kansas...

    Yeah this is a big game, but make it the Cardinal Rules game or something. Kansas is used to seeing blue at home, so it's not like Red is what they're used to.


    Oh we will fight, fight, fight for Iowa State,
    and may her colors ever fly!!!

    My guess? ESPN.

    bigcyfan82: Cyclone Alley is a bunch of MORONS if they put the shirt table right in front of the doors again. Let's hope you guys learned from last year not to do that considering it about got the ushers killed.

    Sorry, I'm wearing cardinal, as always. Why in the world should we let Kansas take ownership of one of our colors, in our house? It's demeaning.
    Would KU encourage their fans to "wear blue" at the Phog to separate themselves from ISU? Give me a break.

    Would a true ISU fan support the athletic department and their decision to make this the gold rules game? People who don't wear gold just make it look like a failed attempt.

    Its the gold rules game because its on ESPN, and nobody outside of Iowa and some parents of players in Nebraska cares about ISU vs. Nebraska in basketball. Plus, it looked awesome last year on ESPN.

    You know, you have a point. I have tons of gold stuff, and I've changed my mind.
    But I still hate running away from a color just because our visiting opponent wears it. Who cares?

    Wow! I'm glad I could change your mind! I agree that we shouldn't be running away from our colors. However, if we were playing Nebraska in anything I would always wear Gold. Maybe its just my stupid-sticious but I never want to wear a color of the other team.

    It was your line about how it looks like a "failed attempt."

    I don't see why Cardinal Rules wouldn't work for ESPN...

    That would make more sense - Blue is more their primary color. that would be like encouraging us to wear Red instead of Gold - putting your best foot forward

    I agree and do that, particuarly on road trips, but it's different when the other team's fans wear mostly red - it helps identify you better. Kansas fans wear mostly (dare I say, almost exclusively?) Blue. You aren't going to mistake many ISU fans for Jayhawk fans if you wear Red tomorrow...
