The coaching change affects all of you more than it does any of us fans. Please don't feel alone... you've got thousand's of ISU fans feelin the same way.
But we're not the Iowa State Gene Chiziks. We're the CYCLONES!!! You guys are CYCLONES! And you can count on me having your back each and every day. And there are thousand's of us that don't post on these boards that will have your back next year's games too! You may not know us by name... but we know you and love watching you guys do what you do best!
Thanks for giving your all every game for us this year! I look forward to watching you guys next year.
I know we've got a vocal minority that likes to post their frustrations on message boards. But you've got a fanbase like no other. I live in a different state now that I'm graduated and I've got fellow alum's buyin me a beer downtown when I'm wearing my Cyclone gear. We've got amazing fans... and amazing players... and next year we'll prove that to everyone that nothing can keep us down!!
Edit: Almost forgot the most important part... remember that you guys still have each other... all the things you have been building toward... that's not lost... the guys who actually put the ball in the endzone and keep our opponents from doing so are still here. The only thing I ask you all to do is to talk to your teammates, don't feel abandoned by yourself and try to cope alone. This is just another battle for the team to get through... and you can't win it without your teammates.
We Love all you guys and man ,seeing all the heart and the drive to never give up you all showed us this year!!! We do really have your backs ! Its you guys we sat in our seats for , it is you that we cheered for as you got off the buses! Not the coaches and we still will love on all of you next year because thats what we do at ISU! We are a family too !granted we know you better than you know us ,but we are here for you. We get upset too and feel at a loss .But mostly we feel for you young men .We are very thankful for everyone of you on the team.If you choose to stay we will weather through anything we need to as a Cyclone!Stay strong we love you all!
A bowl isn't that far away with the right coach. Look how many losses this year came down to the last play of the game, or a couple plays here and there that could have affected the outcome. I would love nothing more than to see the team stick together and show Chizik how it's done. It really wouldn't surprise me to see them win more games next year than Chizik won his entire time at Iowa State.
