Starting at #7 in the AP poll, highest in school history. Let’s do this!
Moving along! Congrats Cyclones on a thrilling win!
One of my favorite college coaches has passed away. Godspeed, Johnny Orr!
On to the World Series!
You made this year a special one in the history of ISU athletics. Yours was a class of castoffs and transfers, and you managed to come together and make a run in the NCAA tournament, when most figured you would spend the postseason viewing it from home. Shows how much they know.
You had the heart, the will, and the ability to win a lot of games, and managed to win a couple more that they handed you an L in. My thanks to you, for making this season enjoyable.
The future is bright for ISU Basketball, and you helped to start that out.
You also took the time to take some pictures with a young Cyclone fan after the game against Ohio State in Dayton, and you made his day (my nephew).
The non-charge call and subsequent “unknown” foul against Niang with 5 seconds left is absolutely inexcusable for a Division 1 referee. This better go to the commissioner’s office.
Don’t believe me? Here, take a look…
I was watching the pregame to the Cardinals – Diamondbacks tonight, and they had a retrospective of Game 6 of the 2011 World Series, one of the greatest baseball games ever played. I thought it was very well done, and went out to find it on Youtube, since I didn’t have this one on DVD. While looking for it, I came across one that was even better. Enjoy!
