    Very rarely

    have we have had good football and good basketball seasons in the same academic year.

    I think you could count on one hand when both teams were outstanding(Bowl game and NCAA tourney). I guess what I am saying is.......this year is the norm rather than the exception. Not that I want it to be like this, but it is what it is.

    Unless you're only 8, yes 2001, Insight Champs and a Top 25 ranking. Also regular season Big 12 Basketball champs and a 2 seed in the NCAA's with an unfortunate loss to a team that shall not be mentioned.

    Iowa State became the Cyclones after they leveled Northwestern in 1895. As the Chicago Tribune (9/29/1895) noted:
    'Struck by a Cyclone
    It Comes from Iowa and Devastates Evanston Town'

    I know it doesn't happen often..
    2005 is another year, right? Houston Bowl and 2nd round of NCAA tourney.

    So twice beats rarely. More times than not ISU football and mens basketball are not in a bowl and the NCAA the same year. 2001 was very nicely the exception to the rule.

    BTW try more than 48. I've seen enough of and been part of ISU history in sports to know that we really shouldn't be surprised by this basketball downturn. Not that I like it, it is just the fact.

    Not just at ISU but at a lot of schools. It is not easy to have successfull programs in both. Only schools with big $$$$ can do it consistently and even some schools with big $$$ can't do it.

    I was in Ames from 99-01 and before that hadn't been much of an ISU fan. I got sucked in thinking things would always be good!

    Damn marketing gets you to sign on the line and then they pull the rug out from under you.


    Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose, sometimes it rains.
