    I was wrong

    Yep I predicted an Iowa State win today. Obviously that was crazy as we never had a chance today and we got our butts kicked from the opening tip on. How could I be so stupid?

    Seriously though, I thought the board needed a little optimistic view since 90% of you have an "end of the world" attitude at all times. I went out on a limb and predicted us to beat a ranked opponent.

    I don't know what bothers me more though, that we let another winnable game slip away, or that there were so many Cyclone fans happy that we lost so they could come back and let me know I was wrong.

    Huh? It's not hard to blame them. No Cyclone fan should ever cheer for Iowa State to lose. There are multiple posters here that are making that claim. It's really sad.

    Tough loss. Brackins continues to struggle. Gilstrap continues to force shots. And we continue to not take advantage of other teams mistakes. The other guys played good enough for us to win but until our big 2 step up, we are going to lose close games

    I never root for ISU to lose. For any reason. I have gotten an attitude the last couple of years (especially this season) when I think, "I wonder how they'll lose this one," but I always hope for a win.

    Trust me. I was thinking the same thing...even though I predicted a win. I've been a fan long enough to know the ending. But I cheer like hell and it depresses me a little when we lose

    Re: I was wrong

    We are the second worst team in the league. How sad. With the talent we have, there is only one reason why we are only better than Nebraska.


    Clone to the Bone with the up and coming IOWA STATE.

    Seriously though, I thought the board needed a little optimistic view since 90% of you have an "end of the world" attitude at all times. I went out on a limb and predicted us to beat a ranked opponent.

    I think you were also wrong about Syracuse not making, and North Carolina making the tournament. But we are all wrong sometimes.

    Re: I was wrong

    Nothing wrong with a positive attitude- nothing. I'd much rather predict a win and be wrong than to predict a loss and be right. This season has, unfortunately, matched the dire predictions that some made after only a loss or two. I get the feeling they're pleased with that.

    I would think #2 bothers you more. If #1 bothers you more, then you have some crazy delusional hope, or that miraculously the ****** would change.

    Edit: the censored word isn't a bad word, it starts with an s, ends with a t, and has crip in the middle.

    It was happening quite a bit four years ago. Why should it change now?

    Happens when fans want a change in leadership. Sadly enough I have been for 4 years now, well quietly.


    NHL teams need to be added to the favorite teams section.
