I'm still riding high on the whole experience of being there for ISU's win over KU in the semis and for ISU's first Big 12 title since 2000, but this fan base deserves some major props. Everywhere I went in KC, Cyclones were there. Fans of other schools would comment. Random people on the street not connected with any Big 12 school would comment. I ran into a Jayhawk fan who lamented "y'all taking over our city." We held our own on Friday with KU and kept it a semi-neutral site. Then on Saturday, we obliterated all expectations. If you weren't there, I'm not sure you can truly grasp just how heavily Cyclone the crowd was. And they were getting up possession after possession trying to move the needle in the first half and the second. Hilton South is real! And this fan base made it happen. What an awesome weekend!
