    And became depressed. First moment I have missed ISU sports this offseason.

    It's awful. I love the NHL playoffs, but after that there is nothing.

    Well...there's baseball. And golf. And bowling. And....

    Yeah. There's pretty much nothing.

    I'm going to open this can of worms...


    If ISU had baseball you would still have ISU sports to watch (assuming you aren't interested in softball).

    Also, the bottom ticker is really annoying on small screens. I hate how much room it takes up on my netbook with a 10" screen. CF should really have an adaptive layout and make that ticker go away for screens smaller than 15".

    i want the bottom ticker to count down the days until football season is over (for isu). wa wa waaa.

    seriously though, it is going to be tough to stomach watching 80 teams play in bowl games and have isu not be one of them. i just don't see it happening with our entire defensive line leaving or being kicked off the team. :frown: brutal. just brutal.

    considering our offensive woes as of late i'll give wally a pass on this season considering. hopefully mangino can get us serviceable on offense. ttech, osu and others have thrived with zero defense in any given season. perhaps we can do the same.

    If people cared about baseball they wouldnt feel like they had nothing to watch.

    NBA finals will have some of my attention. Other than that though, there is nothing.

    Listen, I love summer. I love spring field work, I love fishing, boating, road tripping, bonfires, golfing, going to baseball games, baseball in general, and everything spring and summer offer. But, my one true love is tailgating and football season. I love it so damn much. I miss it, I miss it a lot.

    Plenty of yard work, baseball, golf and spending time with my son to be done in the offseason. I'm not worried.

    Just noticed this as well...136 days seems like a long, long time. I was antsy enough looking at that ticker during this past MBB season, and that was usually just a few days between games!
