For one, UNI hasn't been a dominant, top DI team for over 50 years, and too many people held onto those glory days and, I think, expected too much out of a team that competes for recruits with ISU and Iowa. Tough task, indeed! Considering all of that, UNI has finished, more or less, over the last 50 years in DI about what can be expected.
Second, I've always supported and gone with what we have. I've never felt that it's an option for me to suddenly not be a fan anymore, not be an alumni anymore, not support the team anymore, and not support the staff anymore. I, as the kids say, "roll with what we have," fair or foul weather.
Third, I'm too much of a fan of UNI to ever get depressed at how they do. I know that someday we'll have our day in the sun, even if it is only for one season.
Either way, I'll always be in the stands and fighting for the Panthers, even when and if the "new converts" (and believe me, there are A LOT of them) abandon ship in frustration.
