Ranting And Raving | What Iowa State Fans Were Saying About The Cyclones' 59-14 Loss To Oklahoma

New, 11 comments

If you thought the Sooners were brutal to Iowa State on Saturday, wait until you see what their own fans were saying about the loss.

David Purdy

There were a bunch of mixed emotions from both fan bases as the Sooners and Cyclones got ready to square off on Saturday. OU fans figured they'd win but there was that crazy feeling in there somewhere that made them think there was a chance they'd lose. ISU fans figured they'd lose but there was that crazy feeling in there somewhere that made them think there was a chance they'd win. Shortly after kickoff the final outcome of the game became painfully clear to the Cyclones...and their fans.

This week we're checking in on the WRNL game thread.

Lets do this!!

We are past due

Their number one receiver is injured?

So what youre saying is there’s a chance? Side note, never want to see a player get injured. I hope he is able to play next week.

lol

there was so much holding on that

You live and learn. At any rate, you live.

how many holds can we count on the replay?

We got 'em right where we want 'em

Our olé defense is merely a rope-a-dope strategy

CyForPresident

Man, we are sooooooo terrible against OU

Idk what it is

LOOK AT MY AWFUL DECISION! LOOK AT IT!

drinky drinky drink

dustwel

Well if the game keeps going this way I'll get most of my morning back

Where in the world was that pass going?


Even our band looks cold and depressed

I'm looking for a Dare to Be Great situation.

i dont even know what to think about this team

this is a domination so far

bring out your committed high school juniors oklahoma

this isnt fair.

dustwel

At this rate

150-0

CyForPresident

Soooo... We don't give up 82 today right?

RIGHT?

LOOK AT MY AWFUL DECISION! LOOK AT IT!

Death, taxes and getting dominated by OU in football

Life’s three guarantees…

AmericanCyclone

and drops by Iowa State recievers

i know most of you didn't see it but we looked just about this bad in the first half against Texas. Except OU looks better than Texas.

Jack Trice turf

Is back to being our number one receiver.

So we're running the hurry-up offense

So we can quickly get our defense back on the field?

I'm looking for a Dare to Be Great situation.

way to prepare after bye team

good job

You live and learn. At any rate, you live.

Our D is going to wear out in no time at this pace

jcrave24

it looked worn out on the first drive

You live and learn. At any rate, you live.

never thought i would say these words

wish jevohn miller was out there.

jcrave24

240 yards in the 1st quarter

lol, that’s pathetic

You live and learn. At any rate, you live.

What's the record?

Just curious.

I'm looking for a Dare to Be Great situation.

IncontinentKoala

Can't tell for a team, but it would have to be way more than that

305 is the most in one quarter for a single player

jcrave24

yeah, I couldn't find it either

and then I saw that a QB had like 734 passing yards in one game, could be worse I guess

You live and learn. At any rate, you live.

OU is playing with us right now

Iowa State is the Drunken Master of basketball

i hate how lopsided college football can be

I liked last year's OU game better.

FS1 must be super glad they’re showing this game
And announcers working their butts off to make it seem interesting

I'm looking for a Dare to Be Great situation.

#PunterU

I'm a captioner. My fingers are faster than yours.

their offense is just here to hit season highs

just because I rock, doesn't mean I'm made of stone.

ClonesJer

booing the injured guy ... everything is going just as planned

just because I rock, doesn't mean I'm made of stone.

WTF is wrong with those people?

who does that?

ClonesJer

in fairness to the fans, he couldve made it off ... and we're getting thumped .... and its cold ... and an early game

not a lot to be cheery about.

just because I rock, doesn't mean I'm made of stone.

That puts them over 400 total yards.

To our 130

and you know their 2nd string is just as good as their first

1000 yards is a new benchmark for us of suck

Have we ever given up 1000 yards in a game before?

no according to encyclonpedia

This was not the history I wanted to see made today

I don't know if I can take another half of this crap

IncontinentKoala

Let's just sim the rest of the game out and get on with our respective days

ISU9-OhYeah!

They need to institute a promotion/relegation system to CFB

And our favorite college football team needs to be relegated.

jcrave24

if there is ever a big shakeup in conference realignment

we’ll get shuffled into a non power 5 conference if we don’t ever improve

You live and learn. At any rate, you live.

also, our tackling is pathetic

jcrave24

so terrible

not focused at all

You live and learn. At any rate, you live.

I don't know

I kind of like this gray haired ref, he’s more interesting than our defense

You live and learn. At any rate, you live.

oh good, they get it at the 2

so at least they’ll get 98 more yard rushing before half

just because I rock, doesn't mean I'm made of stone.

in a sentence can someone summarize what's happened thus far?

ClonesJer

We are Iowa State.

just because I rock, doesn't mean I'm made of stone.

this team usually doesnt respond to "adversity"

but i can see why with these coaches

did stoops touch EJ Bibbs shoulder as he walked off as if to say

"you’re the only one I would want"

The worst part of being an ISU football fan

is not the missed field goals or not getting respect from the refs or even being outclassed in term of size and athleticism.

The worst part of being an ISU football fan is consistently getting the ball back late in the half and the coaching staff telegraphing to everyone in the world that even they don’t believe in the team, forcing us into bad clock management and taking timeouts into halftime.

Can we at least pretend that we believe we belong being on the same field as these guys?

I AM SO PROUD

when you win

ClonesJer

of course when we do show faith in them and they score, we are sure to let the opponent score within seconds

I mean, I personally don’t believe in them at all either, but yeah, I supposed the coaching staff should at least fake it.

just because I rock, doesn't mean I'm made of stone.

I think I say this every week

But I feel like sending the opposing coach a gift basket every time they run a pass play.

jcrave24

yes

lets rush 3 and let them pick apart the zone

You live and learn. At any rate, you live.

jcrave24

the option was unstopable when we played Texas too

there are no adjustments at all.

Richardson should think about altering his snap count

When the safety has a 10-yard running start on his blitz. Unless he has a death-wish or something.

I get that Oklahoma is way better than us

But are they 31 points on the road just after halftime better? Halfway seriously asking

First punt of the day incoming for OU

Wide Right & Natty Lite - Nötkött Slott featuring Tom Farniok on bass

Look on the bright side

We have a chance of breaking our kick off yardage record…

Ok I've had enough. Pain tolerance reached.

Enjoy the rest of the game everyone.

xozte

I get the whole staying with one QB. but take Sammy out.

Yeah it's not benching, it's protecting at this point.

I'm merging back to the fire Rhoads line of thinking.

JantzTheNightAway

I'm convinced we don't actually have a defensive line

Its just cardboard cutouts of dudes in pads

We're down at least one more than normal this game

Could be helping us be crappier than usual.

Wide Right & Natty Lite - Nötkött Slott featuring Tom Farniok on bass

Hey ISU defense

Here’s a spoiler alert: OU IS GOING TO RUN THE BALL UP THE MIDDLE.

Wide Right & Natty Lite - Nötkött Slott featuring Tom Farniok on bass

Why do we always come out flat after BYE weeks?

The outcome was never in doubt but at least it would be more entertaining if we didn’t spot them 21 to open the game

I'm looking for a Dare to Be Great situation.

500 yards rushing?

Shame, shame and eternal shame. Let life be short lest shame be too long.

Yeah even Baylor didn't do this to us.

Wide Right & Natty Lite - Nötkött Slott featuring Tom Farniok on bass

That whole game was unacceptable

JantzTheNightAway

At least we didn't give up 600 rushing yards

good job guys. we did it.

we football’d

TwinsBasilTwins

That's a stretch.

Iowa State is the Drunken Master of basketball

we fielded a team for four quarters. you cannot take this away from me, these players, or this coaching staff
