    Re: This isn't CSPs fault, it's CFHs fault

    You realize that my entire second paragraph was (as I explicitly stated) completely unrelated to Fred Hoiberg and ISU basketball. For the average Joe, it's not good career advice to just leave a job...

    Re: This isn't CSPs fault, it's CFHs fault

    That's completely irrelevant to how your old/current company will think of you or how well you do by them. It might be best for you personally or your new company to run out the door and leave a...

    Re: Smartest/Dumbest financial decision you've made

    As someone who doesn't have kids yet, but plans to within the next few years it makes perfect sense to me. Up until you have a kid, you've grown up your whole life only worrying about taking care of...

    Re: Smartest/Dumbest financial decision you've made

    There's a difference between financial reasons as in "I can't afford to feed or clothe my potential children" and financial reasons as in "I won't be able to buy a new jet ski if I have a kid." Not...
  5. Re: Civil & Construction Engineer Career Advice

    Not that it helps that much, but I'm a CE who ended up working for a utility company. Essentially, my role is to be an in house technical expert who manages our design consultants for our major...

    Re: Bulls @ Suns (Hoiberg vs. Hornacek)

    Just like the MLB and NHL, when you get down to these best of 7 series you're essentially saying that whoever has the most money to pay for the best players and coaches will win. What people like...

    Re: Single Game Tickets

    This isn't Stub Hub and he's not asking a scalper to get tickets for him on the cheap. He's asking a favor one Cyclone fan to another. A lot of people view CF as an extended circle of...

    Re: FS: MBB ISU / COLORADO (Sioux Falls)

    Don't know that I'd call it fair value, but it is -market- value. Nothing against you, but I think most people who look for tickets here are looking for a 50% or less markup over face value.
  9. Re: Travis Hines: A look into the ISU BBall program and the Athletic Dept

    That's how I feel as well. It sounds like some people within the AD office are mad that Fred left and spun everything that happened over the last few years in a way that makes it seem like Pollard...

    Re: Poorest Counties in Iowa

    In my experience northern Iowa is way less dense in population. Granted, where I lived was probably one of the more heavily populated counties in southern Iowa. That said, when I drive north of...

    Re: Poorest Counties in Iowa

    Another difference between Northern IA and Southern IA is farm size. The size of farms in the northern part of the state is much larger than the southern part of the state. If you're talking in...

    Re: Niang on Flex Cam at Jack Trice

    Fair enough, I'll give you that. CF is not representative of all ISU fandom and that is a good thing. Among the serious ISU fans I know (by that I mean football or basketball season ticket holders)...

    Re: Niang on Flex Cam at Jack Trice

    Some fans were unhappy with him leaving, some fans were not unhappy. That's controversy, plain and simple. It was hotly debated here for weeks. Is it still actively debated? No, but that's because...

    Re: Niang on Flex Cam at Jack Trice

    I don't think it was weird or innappropriate that he was there, but I do think it was both weird and innappropriate for them to put photos of him up on the big screen during the game. After he left...

    Re: city property laws

    "Parking" part of a yard?? I've never heard of this. I agree it is almost certainly owned by the city, since the city would own at least out to the sidewalk and probably a few feet beyond in most...
  16. Re: Central IA Girls Little League Being Cheated in World Series

    I don't have any problems with what those girls basketball teams did. They both did the right thing in trying to secure themselves the best seed. The problem was with the tournament organization...
  17. Re: Central IA Girls Little League Being Cheated in World Series

    Why play a game if you aren't trying to win? Because your goal is not to win any individual game, it's to win the tournament. If any of the teams were allowed to opt out of some of the group stage...
  18. Re: Central IA Girls Little League Being Cheated in World Series

    Right, but that was not guaranteed. Why take a risk if you don't have to?


    To cloneswereall-- The run ratio they were trying to change was the SE team's. If the west team was shut out, that...
  19. Re: Central IA Girls Little League Being Cheated in World Series

    Right, that's how I understood it as well. Essentially, due to tie breaker rules the only way to assure they would advance was to be shut out. If they tried to win but lost by a close score they...

    Re: Email Etiquette

    I'm ok with using all caps or mostly caps in the subject line if it's used sparingly and for a purpose. For example if there is a note with "ACTION REQUIRED: XXXXXXX" it's helpful for me to see that...
