    This all day long. I'd like nothing better than for the Cyclones to be known as bullies who TAKE games from the physically and mentally weak.

    Are "dirty" and "dark horse" in blog and comments euphemisms for something else?

    I feel bad for giving the fanboy a page view but this quote was worth it.

    Its called aggressive, nothing wrong with the way they play. I actually really like it. ISU finally has a tough team, unlike the last few years.

    That's just the standard Monkey Claw defense, more popular in Thailand but I think it'll catch on here soon.

    Hope the young man is OK, but that still shot cracks me up every time.

    When he started complaining about the fouls on Hogue I knew all I needed to know. Neither of those were excessive, and the second one should've been a foul on Haws.

    Actually in the still you can see his left hand clearly going for what he expected to be a strip. It was a foul and with the way the rule is written it deserved an ejection. But when you watch the video it is clear he thought Mika was going to go directly for a layup and was moving to block that. He guessed wrong and committed a foul, there was no malice.

    "His absence made a much larger impact than the absence of the three Iowa State players."

    -Um yeah, Mika > Ejim, Kane, and Hogue.

    "Hogue's fouls were the most outrageous. Twice in the first half he was overly rough with Tyler Haws. First, while Haws was in the air and already being fouled, Hogue pushed him from behind causing the injured Haws to fly into the basket support. On a later play the two became tangled up and Hogue pulled Haws down to the ground by his jersey. That play resulted in a double foul being called."

    -I have no words to do justice to how truly stupid this statement is.

    Yup looks like the monkey-claw.

    We all agree it was unintentional, but what do you think Kane was doing? Mika didn't really have the ball near his face and Kane doesn't look like he was going for a steal, or swipe.
