On Yahoo Sports 'Sports Dash' this morning, Pat Forde slammed ISU about the locker room theft. Said we need to be a good host and wondered if Barney Fife was our head of security. Went on to say that Iowa State already gets looked down on in the state, and that losing to Iowa AND letting their locker room get broken into will make people look down on us even more. What a DB.
Looked down on in the state. LOL
Who was looking down at ISU the last 2 years? Iowa?

If you ask the basketball analysts outside the state of Iowa I think you would be surprised to hear their responses. Iowa was pegged as a preseason top 5 team by one ESPN analyst and is ranked in the vast, vast majority of preseason top 25 polls
ok at least get his quote right if you're going to slam the guy. Word for word:
What happened: After Iowa’s 27-21 victory over the Cyclones in the garden spot of Ames, nine Hawkeyes players and coaches reported having money and phones stolen from the visitors locker room. It’s one thing to be bad at football, as this Iowa State team certainly appears to be; it’s another to have thieves in your stadium.
Backup advice: Hire good help. According to the Iowa Gazette, private security firm Contemporary Services Corporation handled security at the stadium Saturday night. Iowa State should seek an upgrade from the Barney Fifes who were assigned to watch the locker room.
Question is will he publicly eat his own words when it comes out that someone from U of I did this? Iowa State has followed this up exactly how they should have. Forde is grasping at straws here for a story.
