The Rematch - Iowa State vs Kansas

Posted by Steven Myers on February 2, 2015 at 7:10 PM Comments comments (0)



Yeah, I can just go ahead and say it now that Missouri is in the SEC.  Kansas' biggest rival in Big 12 basketball now belongs to Iowa State.  I know that nationally some might still think it is Texas, but here around the Midwest we know that itsn't the case.  Iowa ...

My Final Thoughts on Iowa State vs K-State

Posted by Steven Myers on September 9, 2014 at 12:05 PM Comments comments (0)

"We better make a lot of strides between week 1 and 2. Even if we improve more than any team in the country between the first two weeks, I don't know if it will be enough to beat K-State."

 

That quote was from my Final Thoughts from last week's loss to North Dakota St.  Boy was that a statement or what. Its almost like I was Marty McFly a...

Why I think ISU will lose to KSU

Posted by Chuck on September 5, 2014 at 6:50 AM Comments comments (0)

I will keep this simple. ISU is not that good yet, they will hit their stride, but not this week.

KSU is ok. Not a world beater. I do like them to roll.


KSU 38, ISU 13

My Final Thoughts on Iowa State vs North Dakota St

I'm not gonna sugar coat things like some writers out there.  I'm not going to say "Well, we lost Bundrage" or "Farniok had to leave the game" or "Iowa State lost their starting safety."  N...

Why I think ISU will lose to NDSU

Posted by Chuck on August 29, 2014 at 3:00 AM Comments comments (0)

Timing is everything.  Most people will say that this is the time to jump up and get NDSU, it is early and they struggled last year against K State.  The NDSU of 2013, was quite dominant and capped the season with a 3rd consecutive FCS title.  I say this is the worst time to to play a plodding NDSU.

ISU brought in Mark Mangino. That is a great move. They have Sam Richardson at QB. He is experienced.  I am not sold on him running the offense. I also am not sold on IS...

Hiawatha Rutland

Posted by Chuck on August 29, 2014 at 2:45 AM Comments comments (1)

Just some thoughts on our departed friend.


It has been a few days since we got the kick in the gut that Hiawatha Rutland had drown while swimming to shore in Lake Erie.  He was 33. I have had a few days to collect my thoughts, look at all of the posts flooding in to his facebook page and remember the good times.

As a fan of football, I knew Hiawatha as the enemy... a guy on ISU bent on beating the Hawks.  In life, I knew him as a comedian, schoolteacher and ...

The Sweet 16 is...well sweet

Posted by Steven Myers on March 28, 2014 at 5:20 PM Comments comments (0)

It has been a while everyone.  In fact, it has been 14 years since the Cyclones have made it to this stage of the Big Dance.  The best team in Iowa State history (up to this point) was the last team to reach the Sweet 16.  They also made their way to the Elite 8 that year by besting Steve Lavin's UCLA Bruins. 

 

This year's Cyclone squad is going for the same result in New York City.  This time the University of Connecticut stands in their way. ...

Is this the Year Cyclone Fans?

Posted by Steven Myers on March 1, 2014 at 12:15 AM Comments comments (4)

Iowa State fans would tell you that luck hasn't always been on their side unless it was accompanied by "bad," and to be fair they may be on to something. Case in point:


  • February 2004 in Lawrence, KS, Iowa State's Jared Homan shoots his 1st of 2 free throws. The ball bounces off the rim and Kansas, along with the officials, go down to the other side of the court. Uncontested by anyone wearing red and gold, Kansas makes a three pointer, which is allowed to count. Iow...

Streak is Over; Not the Season

Posted by Steven Myers on January 11, 2014 at 2:20 PM Comments comments (0)

Well, the streak is over. Oklahoma ruined the party for the Cyclones and won down in Norman 87-82. We knew the first loss had to come sometime, and it wasn't one of those TCU or Texas Tech losses. This is not a bad Oklahoma team and I am pretty confident that they will be in the NCAA tourney. The thing that worries me more than the loss is the ankle injury to Kane. Hopefully it is just a minor roll of the ankle, but even if it is, he only has 48hrs to recover prior to Kansas coming to town...

Good day in College basketball

Great day for ISU. Keep rolling.


Thank you, Notre Dame for beating Duke and Xavier for beating Butler. Iowa's RPI is going to rise.  Now Iowa just needs to bring it against Wisconsin.
