Here's my take on the situation. When people say that they hope the focus of the game won't be on Adam Haluska, I think they are insane. The fact of the matter is that Haluksa not only transferred to his rival, but he told the media days before that he was staying at Iowa State and basically lied to Iowa State fans.

Now how the fans react, I believe is up to them. Personally, I don't think there is any right or wrong when it comes down to it. I'm not saying that I want people throwing things on the court, or even obscenities, but I am saying that Cyclone fans have a right to be angry. They have a right to express themselves, as long as it stays in the boundaries. I hope the fans get extremely creative and do some things that we've never seen before.

It's going to be nutty, and it's going to be fun. Just be smart Cyclone fans. Be smart, have a good time and make Haluska pay on the scoreboard, because that's where it really matters most. Go Cyclones!
