Classy post... I wish more Hawk fans were as level headed as you. (AKA TSAHAWK, PantherHawk... the artist formerly known as SouthernHawk :) jk! SH)
I wasn't around during the season so I want to say what a neat year for ISU. In fact I honestly expected you guys to beat KU & I even predicted to my uncle you'd beat Nebbie (didn't expect it to go the way it did) They played with heart and passion all year long. They also seemed intent on playing serious D and I have long felt that would be ISU's key, much like Iowa's. A-rob is a joy to watch and Sims is a super star.
Finally Paul Rhoads is one of the good guys and it is nice to see guys like that win. He takes his kids seriously and it shows. In fact it is cool to see, PR, Mike Farley & KF interact with their teams as the kids all seem to like them immensely.
Kudos to PR and ISU.
