    That was an intense game! No way I thought they would battle back to take the lead and then hold it without their 2 leaders (Ejim and Kane). Just wow!!!

    That was more nerve racking than the Michigan game. Not because I think BYU is better, but because I think ISU should beat BYU.

    Losing Kane AND Ejim I thought they would pull off some crazy comeback. Great win, even better confidence boost for the team

    This actually extended my life by a few years. I feed on Mormon tears.

    Way too early in the season for such intensity. At least that is what I was telling myself. No chance I'll be able to keep up this level of emotional investment in games when i am older.

    I have, too often had such a "defeatist" attitude when it comes to ISU sports. The FB season has completely depleted my stock of athletic supporters. SO, I told myself tonight that I'd be happy to just be close at the end. NO MORE -- I saw too many brilliant plays drawn up & mismatches exploited that I am going to get rid of that attitude during bball season (it may take a little longer with FB however). The MAYOR ROCKS!!!

    Good news for me. It's less years of retirement that I have to save for!

    I thought a year or two more for me also. I am old so I have learned to expect the worse, and then be thankful when the worst doesn't happen. I told my son with 6 minutes that BYU is going to get a whole bunch of calls here to get them back in the game. It happened exactly like I said but ISU overcame the adversity, much thanks to Niang and others including Edozie. That got my old heart ticking again.

    I'm 27 and after that game, I feel like I should be collecting Social Security checks and playing shuffleboard in Florida.

    Probably around five...but if they keep doing the Michigan & BYU finishes, I won't survive the season. I'm too old to give up that many years!
