    No NCAA Tournament...Feeling blue?

    I love the NCAA Tournament...who doesn't? But it sucks when the Clones aren't participating.

    Want to know what will ALWAYS make me happy regardless of mood? Enjoy.

    To be honest, missing the NCAA is like breathing. I don't even think about it, I just assume that it's normal.

    Miss it? Not really. Making it would be a welcome surprise but really don't expect it anymore. Probably similar to how a fan of a school like Davidson or Drake or some similar school may feel about the NCAA tourney.

    You should be getting used to the tourney without ISU by now. I am.

    Re: No NCAA Tournament...Feeling blue?

    I carry my program around from the 1986 tourney just for the memories. I've declared that I will not watch an NCAA tournament game until we are back in it. It's going to be a long couple of weeks.

    I am! Never missed a show when it used to be on. And, even better, they used his theme song for the Youtube video of the ISU win over Nebraska. Very, very fitting thanks to the 8 TOs.


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

    When ISU is participating, I usually take a four day weekend, and it is my absolute favorite time of the year. Now, it's just something to watch.

    I seem to recall this tune...

    Oh yes here it is!

    This should also help if you're feeling blue!

    I agree. Unfortunately I'm used to not seeing ISU in the dance. It feels normal.

    If in 2000 you would have told me that we would play in 3 NCAA tournaments the 11 tournaments between 2000 and 2010.... and play in 6 bowl games during the same time.. I would have told you that you are crazy.

    Creighton was selling their tickets to the second round of the CIT today at Quest Center. Even that sounds okay at this point.
