    Couldn't wear anything with any blue or orange today. Also made sure to put on my game day socks and ISU basketball shirt. What are your biggest superstitions?

    I haven't showered since the Missouri game in 2012. Last game we lost at Hilton.

    Mine are more during the game, if we're doing bad I'll walk out of the room for awhile. If I'm watching by myself I turn the TV off for a little bit then back on but rarely watch by myself. In Hilton for the Iowa game I put my head in my hands waiting for cheering when Iowa was on offense once it got under 3 minutes.

    It's only weird if it doesn't work.

    I think I will start a new one if we win tonight. Invite people over to our house and exchange presents.

    Once a year during the conference season I intentionally avoid following the first half. Don't watch, don't get iphone updates, nothing. I pick a game I know we can win but aren't favored

    The first time I did it was the Texas A and M beatdown and last year Baylor. This year I haven't decided

    It's only stupid if it doesn't work

    If I am watching at home, I never wear anything ISU related. It's really dumb since I ALWAYS wear ISU gear if I go out.

    If at home.. I prefer one lamp on, out of line from the tv so as not to glair, and definitely no ceiling lights on. Not sure why, just feels right.
