    I thought you posted this this morning.

    I guess I saw it on the Twitters.

    I love these perspective pieces. Remembering the decades the doldrums makes winning right now so, SO much sweeter.

    Brock is 9-2 against conference teams if I've calculated correctly.

    ISU has 12 losses since the start of 2017, and I believe the average margin of defeat is a little over 5 points. Enjoy these times brothers and sisters...

    I remember sitting in my buddy's mancave around the turn of the century watching Cyclone basketball and football on his huge box internal projection TV. We thought it was just the beginning of a golden age of Iowa State sports. There has been "a lot of green" between the end of that surge and the current high trend. It has indeed been a ride.

    "There was no extended celebration or t-shirt printed to commemorate the win."

    What is our average margin of victory...?

    Are we losing most of our close games, winning most of our close games, or going roughly 50-50 on them? What is our overall luck/clutch rating compared to the field?

    So my takeaway from this is that we are basically just as good as Alabama.

    I'm only pointing this number out for purposes of comparing to ISU's history. In other words, I grew up with ISU getting blown completely out every few games or so...

    The mindset in the fanbase has changed too....instead of being thrilled with a 10 point conference road victory, there were still plenty of things being mentioned that need to get better.

    Not necessarily a bad thing...there's some real potential for a team that can do what it's done lately and be better in the 'correctable' things.

    Nice try Blum. I'll always be nervous when we kick and always assume the officials are out to get us. [​IMG]
