    To those that decided to turn the TV off midway through the 1st half....how do you like them apples?

    Never underestimate Hoiball.

    Dude you've been complaining about fans all through football season when we were losing.
    And now you're complaining about fans in basketball season when we're winning?

    Same thing happened last year, multiple times. One of the worst was the Ohio State game.

    We came back, from being down 13 to the 2 seed.

    Don't give up on ISU.

    I just think fans should be there win or lose. Sorry that's the way I feel.

    To be fair, we also have fans here complaining about the basketball team itself and they are 4-0 and ranked.

    Yes, some fans are quitters. This team showed a TON of resolve to continue and fight through big deficits. Just a great win all around. Lots to learn from it and getting a win on top of it just makes it great!

    Come on man, we just got a huge win on the road and the first thing you post is calling out our fans? I doubt too many quit watching the game.

    I'll forgive during the overlap with FB season, when FB ends everyone needs to get on board the Hoiball Train.

    No matter if you are down 50 or up 50, no matter if the times look bad or how long or big of a drive the other team is putting together, you never turn off the TV. Not bashing any fans that did, I'm guilty of this with my Packers a lot, and almost did when Barnett threw that pick 6 against Oklahoma State, and we know how that turned out. But I can't blame negativity either. I honestly thought that BYU guy's buzzer beat was going in until it flew over the rim.

    I'm willing to guess some fans have heart conditions and it's best to step away now and again.

    I turned off the TV with 8 minutes left in the first half, but not by choice. Had to come in to work

    Seriously? Just stop it. My God. How can you call any Cyclone fan a quitter after what we've been through the last...oh how many decades? There is nothing worse than the people who act like anyone who gets upset is a quitter or a bandwagon fan. GROW UP
