    Does this rate as one of your toughest days...

    of being a Cyclone fan? I have been thinking about this crap all day, unable to do work or school. I would say this is the #1 kick in the nuts I have had as a Cyclone fan, close second would be the missed field goal against Mizzou.

    As an ISU fan? This is the ultimate kick in the gonads. ISU could have recovered from the blarge screwjob and the many FGs that Shaggy missed. Today is a potential game-changer as far as the future of ISU athletics goes.

    This is worse than the McD or Chiz debacle.

    I dont think any amount of poor outcomes for football/basketball can trump this. Unless JP has some miracle behind the scenes, I think today is clearly our apocalypse. Ill still be cheering for the good guys though.

    At least we had a fun search to look forward to after those debacles. This debacle leads to the following search...

    MWC, MAC, WAC, CUSA.

    It might just be me being a little out of sorts, but at this moment I don't think I would care to ever see a non-ISU college football game again.

    Re: Does this rate as one of your toughest days...

    This and that freezing, raining day at the ledgendary OT Missouri game that the media-haters always bring up when we could have won the North. Lot of pain for no gain. But today was slightly worse

    Re: Does this rate as one of your toughest days...

    This is the worst day in the history of our Athletics Program and the worst day in the history of our University. All due to a huge money grab by tax exempt non-profits. How ironic.

    Those are the end of my negative comments. Nowhere to go but up from here. The Cyclones and Iowa State University still have my full support. I plan on increasing my donation next year and not only purchasing Football and Men's BB season tickets but attending every game. Clone to the Bone! Go Cyclones!!!

    Funny you say that, I was thinking the same thing. Can I watch a Big 10 game knowing this is the institution that helped bring ISU down? Might just ruin college football for me, we will see, maybe I will thaw over time.

    Re: Does this rate as one of your toughest days...

    This is right up there. 2000 Michigan State game was bad, the two misses of the Big XII Championship in FB were worse, but this is just horrible.

    On a side note, there is one positive thing. We're not the school that's the most screwed by this deal. Nope, that belongs to the Bears of Baylor. At least we're talking MWC or possibly some deal with the Big East. They are looking C-USA or the Sun Belt square in the face.
