    Lots of fans and pundits were talking about how we were 1-4 in our last 5 games before Oklahoma game. Now after last night, we are 3-1 with 3 wins over ranked teams in our last 4. Now heading into the soft spot of our schedule.

    Right.

    I noticed that ESPN showed the 1-4 thing while neglecting to mention we got beat by a top ten KU team twice. Pardon me if I'm not griping after two losses to KU and two other ranked teams at their places...

    Amazing what a win will do, on Big Monday, no less.

    We finish strong and this is an incredibly season--maybe the program's second-best ever after the Elite Eight appearance and the Malice in the Palace.

    Elo has us at #10. I'm not objecting to that one bit.

    (Iowa at #6? Wow. That was a bigger game than we all, Hawkeyes included, though even at the time.)
     
  5. I must be a ******* moron, because I have no idea how anything could have Iowa above Iowa State. Wins over Top 25, wins on the road. Losses about similar. Oh right, and the fact that we beat them!

    Jay Mohr just talked about the college basketball from last night, mentioned the Syracuse win and then said that even bigger than that was the Iowa State win at Stillwater. He said "that was really big, my friends".

    I was just with Jay Mohr last Tuesday night! No lie. We talked at length about his mad-love for the Cyclones and Paul Rhoads. He actually does a great impression of CPR and the "So Proud"-thing, although he kinda wears it out after a few minutes. "I am so proud to drink this scotch!" "You don't just throw your arm around a guy, and hit on his girlfriend!"

    Awesome to meet him....less than awesome red-eye reduction :spinny:

    I have loved Jay as a comic for a long time...came to ISU back in the day for a stand up show and went 2+ hours.

    I had emailed him one time back then and he wrote back and we corresponded a few weeks..legit sports fan, nice person.

    We live in a world of overreactions. If Long misses that shot, many ISU fans are mailing it in stating that the team is doomed and headed for a free fall. Since they won, many ISU fans now proclaiming them on their way to winning out and getting a #1 seed. People lose their minds trying to predict the future. Projecting future results right after an exciting, huge win is like going to a bar, getting wasted and then trying to find your future spouse. Probably not a good idea.

    Jay Mohr has this irrational crush on all things Iowa State. While totally awesome, there is no logical reason why he loves us so much and is always giving us props on air.

    I attribute it to CPR, maybe? The passion and fire of Coach Rhoads drew a lot of national attention and Jay seems like a sucker for that kind of thing.

    If smiff!! Live in the now, we won!!!!!!!! 9 out of 10 times Lucy takes the ball and Chuck ends up on his back as we Cyclone fans have seen way too many times. This time good ol' Chuck booted that Beotch right through the uprights! Enjoy it while we can as we've been on the other end of the stick too many times.

    I don't think Twocoach enjoyed our win as much as the KU win tonight

    Jay Mohr was a wrestler and loves the sport. Cael Sanderson. That is why he loves us.

    even the article in the paper said "won for just the third time in seven games" not mentioning games against. could have said won 3 of 4 instead.

    Any win over Flip Flopper is a good win. I was very pleased to see ISU win that game. They played great.

    One thing everyone in the Big XII can agree on...the Flopper got his due last night. I keep watching the highlight of him getting pounded by Kane after the first flop. His head bouncing off the court was a thing of beauty.

    Check me if I'm wrong Sandy but isn't it still a possibility to top that season?
