At least for one day our "curse" moved 150 miles to the west...the possibilities are endless and we may be able to look back at this as the signature game much like Mac's first win against Iowa, but the margin for error is still so slim. I will be happy with continued improvement, there are very few seasons in the past 15 where I can say I thought we improved through out the year, this team already exceeded my expectations, why stop now
I think cyclone nation need to start looking more positively on our sports programs. I think the whole "cursed" thing is way overblown. We all know the history of what has happened in the past, and how many "so close" games we've had. But I have always believed that for the most part you create your own luck, and the better you are the luckier you are. Some of this "it's because we're Iowa State" stuff has become a self fulfilling prophecy of sorts, with people expecting ISU to be bad, or blow it for some reason. Here's hoping that todays win can change that culture and I don't have to hear the Eeyore type personalities claim the world is against us, and we can expect to win these games.
No matter how good you are, you're going to lose one-third of your games. No matter how bad you are you're going to win one-third of your games. It's the other third that makes the difference. ~Tommy Lasorda
