    I feel like a kid on Christmas Eve

    I can't even sleep, I'm so excited. I just sit here and read CF over and over while waiting for kickoff. All I can think is I just have to make it through tonight and tomorrow night...

    Is this sad?

    I'd rather be in your shoes than mine. Reading CF and getting pumped up for college football, only to realize that I can't make the game. I'll probably only make 2-3 games this year....

    Then you wouldn't rather be. I made one game last year and probably won't make any this year. I live 550 miles away and generally have to work on Saturdays...

    Re: I feel like a kid on Christmas Eve

    Right now I can not put into words what I'm feeling and looking forward to. All I can say right now is I can't wait and I may need some Tylenol PM over the next two nights if I want any sleep.

    Re: I feel like a kid on Christmas Eve

    2003-2006 I didn't miss a game. Rain, snow, wind, sun, didn't matter, I was there. Then I moved to Indiana in 2007 and the only gane I've been to since is the ND State game last year. Brought tears to my eyes being in there. You don't realize how special of an experience or how special of a place Jack Trice Stadium is until you have to be away from it.

    True. I will never take a Cyclone sporting event for granted ever again. When I was a student I went to them like no big deal. Now, when I make it back to one I take it in with a different perspective and cherish every second.
