    My game notes (long)

    youngest son had a freshman football game, so I was late to the TV for the game ...
    going dark and not wanting to know any result, I decided to type my thoughts while
    watching ... here is my take as I watch the Cyclones opener

    1st Quarter ...
    tough call on the illegal formation ... they called it on the right tackle
    SJ has gotta catch the ball, but how do you miss that facemask?!?
    AA passing looks like 09, but his rushing thus far is very impressive
    we can't miss 43 yd FGs after a 5 min drive to open the game :(
    ---
    3 missed tackles on their second play
    more missed tackles ...
    Jake Knott! first big play by defense
    3 & 12 ... not much pass rush
    OMG that's close ... first down by inches
    c'mon defense, we need a stop ... their K misses too
    feels like a fast and furious first round of a boxing match just ended, judges split
    10-9 decisions
    ---
    more balls thrown to SJ already than I ever remember last year
    excellent after the catch by Franklin! YES!
    ewww, that was an old school air mail by AA i think ... I think Klatt is right,
    emotions need to settle down
    damn, AA is a beast running the ball
    NICE TEMPO ON 4th ... yay Herman!
    c'mon offense, we need POINTS
    Yep! good call ... PI
    Arob out, who is in? Woody
    TOUCHDOWN CYCLONES! another flag ... ok, it's on them lol
    good job O!

    ISU 7, NIU 0
    didn't need to see the stupid cornhead on the gameplan commercial ... blah
    looked like an ok crowd, not a great one earlier ... maybe 45K? lots of empties in
    the middle yellow seats on east side
    ---
    there we go D, much better vs. the run on first down
    ah man, knott got blocked bad on the that qb keeper
    way to bring it Matt!
    end of the quarter ... let's get it back up 7-0

    2nd Quarter ...
    c;mon 3rd down defense ... YES! pick by ZS!!!!
    be kind in judging my typos, I'm on my fourth tall boy :)
    ---
    AROB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HELL YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!
    F'ING A!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    TOUCHDOWN CYCLONES!!!!
    ISU 14, NIU 0
    time for a quick bathroom break ............
    it's 9:30 right now, I hope you all are as happy as I am right now, maybe a "beat the
    hawks" chant going on in Ames as I type :)
    keep it going Cyclones, don't let off the throttle
    ---
    ok, let's not relax boys ... GREAT STOP on 3rd and 1!
    ---
    let's put it in the end zone again! show no mercy!
    walt anderson is giving me a headache
    Money money money money, MONEY!
    please get walt off the air, this reminds me of when espn brought HF on during the
    first drive of the second half in 2002, hopefully not a huge momentum switch like
    that night in IC
    Shontrelle!!! Guess I can't just say SJ anymore LOL
    we have a lot of wide open receivers ... I am smiling so big right now
    aww money, keep your feet
    GREAT RUN AFTER CATCH by Arob ... WTF another flag, dammit ... that's another chicken
    crap call
    freaking 2 and 27 ... that call is a killer
    nice snag DD
    let's go Grant, gotta make kicks ... that'll work, nice job
    ISU 17, NIU 0
    thank god walt is gone, ugh
    ---
    it's nearing the end of the game in real time, but i refuse to look ...
    but i really want to!!! LOL
    FUMBLE!!! Get em! nICE job cover team
    dammit, 2 more missed tackles ... CPR not gonna be happy with that
    c'mon defense, keep playin' ball
    get that kendall hunter s#*& off my screen!
    way to get your hands up Jake Knott
    i hear that third down music!!!! let's go Cyclones!!!!
    still no pass rush, but they are throwing it quick ... another STOP!!!! WOOT!
    ---
    I don't know why i'm watching commercials with dvr but i'm glad I saw that champion
    commercial ... I LOVE MY SCHOOL!!! GO IOWA STATE!!!
    another pee break needed ...
    let's cap off this half with another score baby
    ANOTHER good run after catch, very encouraging!!! DD
    this is a huge 5 minutes, if we score again and lead 20 or 24-0 this game is over ...
    if we give it back and they score ??? 17-7 would not be good
    LENZ RUN AFTER CATCH!!! HUGE!!!
    they are so keying on ARob ... keep throwing the play action passes
    Great catch SED!!!! F--- YES!
    oh ****! that's a backwards pass, oh no ... no no no no no
    maybe not ... omg i dont know
    NO that's forward ... review that s#*t!
    DAMMIT!
    ---
    is Spann hurt? it's been all that Jazz lately ... glad as he falls down :)
    there was some pressure, granted good coverage allowed it, but pressure nonetheless
    ---
    still 2 minutes left, let's get another score!
    damn penalties are starting to be an issue
    Klatt is right, we HAVE left points out there ... shaking my head
    SON OF A B#*#$% ... bad pick
    just what i was talkin about before ... F#@%&&$%#(*%#$(*@$%*($%@#(
    ---
    big 3rd down... C'mon STATE!
    great stop on the sudden change defense! JUST GREAT!
    are you kidding me? he's doinked twice ... i hate this timeout freeze the kicker
    crap, he's so gonna nail it now
    HA! he still missed it! YES!
    ISU 17, NIU o at the half
    it should have been a shutout half, we deserved it ... we still got 30 minutes to
    play, give em hell at the half Pauly
    jerry kill's face is as red as his shirt ... wow
    HALFTIME = fast forward, but keep a look out for anything intersting LOL
    pat jones stumbles around his words, but he entertains me for some reason
    utah is gonna be a big test, they good
    279-112 yards, we should be up by more than 17-0

    3rd Quarter ...
    missed tackle on the first play ... i hope they don't come out flat
    freakin wife is home now and interupting my flow, grrrrrrrrrrrrrr
    this is gonna be a close finish, they have adjusted well - sigh
    HOW DO THEY RULE WHITE BALL WHEN IT"S IN RED HANDS?!?!?! argh!
    Field goal or go???????
    wow, great red zone defense again
    ISU 17, NIU 3
    ---
    we need to keep moving the ball on offense, we are not going to stop them stone cold
    again this half
    good decision Shon
    huge break on 3rd down penalty - finally one goes our way
    another offensive PI penalty???? grrr
    MFer, the end of that drive just plain SUCKED
    we in trouble.
    ---
    i'm in oh **** mode
    why do they keep putting jazz in the game, spann is the mann
    HUGE PLAY!!!! neal deflected to knott ... defense comes up big AGAIN
    ---
    other than the TD run, Arob has been prety quiet

    4th Quarter ...
    that third quarter went fast, we only had the ball once
    need some more POINTS
    first punt of the night ... oh boy shankapotomus
    ---
    4th quarter is where games are won and lost baby
    why can't we ever win comfortably?
    I'm a damn wreck right now
    It would be really easy to check the final score but I'm gonna be disiplined
    another red zone opp.
    ISU 17, NIU 10
    how is this game this close?
    ---
    c'mon offense, you haven't done jack squat since early in the 2nd
    that ko return was a cluster f***
    not enjoying the second half
    get up the field colin, dammit now he's hurt
    oh jesus, he's grabbing his knee
    alright tom dial up a good third and one ... arob gets it
    YES! in the red zone ... now SCORE!
    what a huge drive
    roughing the passer IS tough call there ... that's modern football i guess
    I'll take it.
    TOUCHDOWN CYCLONES!!! good win ... could have been better but I'll take it
    ISU 24, NIU 10
    ---
    less than 100 passing yards is pretty impressive out of our defense

    ISU 27, NIU 10

    it took the whole game to type ... i watched the game alone and delayed, turned off cell phone and refused to go online until it was over ... so whenever there was something i wanted to post, tweet, text, yell or say - I typed it

    i thought it might be an interesting read after the fact so i posted it

    Obviously...
    I am at work today, and considering I had to get up at 4:30 this morning, I had to limit myself to one longneck. I'm no collegian anymore - I can't down large quantities of beer until late at night and still get up early the next morning...

    Re: My game notes (long)

    Right after you said, "There might be a beat the hawks chant going on in ames"

    I swear i said the same thing to my buddy standing next to me in the student section. "Before we leave- were starting a F*** the hawkeyes!" chant!

    Had to have been almost the exact same time that you wrote it
