    Re: Bowlsby: Men's Olympic sports in jeopardy

    First, I misquoted Pollard on the cost of fielding a baseball team. I looked it up, and he said it would cost $1.5 million to field a team in the Big 12, not $2 million. With my back-of-the-envelope...

    Re: Bowlsby: Men's Olympic sports in jeopardy

    Let's say each ticket is sold for $7 (very conservative since that's just general admission in most college baseball parks). If a team averaged 5000 tickets at $7 per with 32 home games, that's...

    Re: Bowlsby: Men's Olympic sports in jeopardy

    Yes, because there wasn't any parity among the (few) countries that fielded teams. Basically the US won every year with Japan a close second. This was also in the middle of the steroid era so that...

    Re: Bowlsby: Men's Olympic sports in jeopardy

    In regard to CW's jab at baseball fans... I know that the return of baseball to Iowa State has almost no chance of happening. However, I think for universities that have baseball, it is likely the...

    Re: Bowlsby: "Cheating pays presently"

    I just read that whole article. It was fascinating. Also... I hate the SEC.
  6. Re: Blum, Rosenfels to call Texas game on Cyclones.tv

    Well it just lessened the value of a Cyclones.tv subscription to me. And by not making it available to me it sure as heck didn't increase the value of access/subscription to LHN to me.
  7. Re: Blum, Rosenfels to call Texas game on Cyclones.tv

    Seriously, I don't see what the licensing issue is. If Texas has the rights, then what's the big deal with them letting out-of-state Cyclone fans see their team with their broadcasters for something...
  8. Re: Blum, Rosenfels to call Texas game on Cyclones.tv

    I think it's dumb that the Texas game won't be broadcast to Cyclones.tv subscribers outside of the state of Iowa!
  9. Re: What's the oldest piece of clothing you own?

    My oldest pieces of clothing are the blue FFA t-shirts I used in high school when showing pigs at the county fair, circa 2000-2004. Our ag adviser believed in good quality cotton shirts, so that's...

    Re: BYU wants in the Big 12

    It seems to me that the teams that are available and that either make sense from a geographic standpoint, tv standpoint, recruiting standpoint, quality of athletic dept standpoint, or *gasp* academic...

    Re: What is the best bar you've ever been in?

    This bar from the Starr Pass Resort & Spa in Tucson, AZ is the best one I've ever been to. I was there for a conference at the resort in 2008. Every night at 5pm sharp the bartender would go out onto...

    Re: Thought on TV shows cancelling

    I liked Community, but shouldn't it be just 2 years worth? Maybe one season per semester at most? Seriously, I received three different college degrees during the run of a show about community...

    Re: Early morning Tailgating in 2014

    West Coaster here. I guess I won't feel too bad shotgunning beers in my pajamas for these games.


    On a serious note, 11am kickoffs make it impossible to do a gamewatch party on the west coast...

    Re: Anybody play clash of clans?

    It's what I do. Look up some farming strategies on YouTube. I look for villages with a lot of available coin/elixir, but almost none in their storage facilities - meaning that it's almost all in...

    Interesting article. The comments were just as interesting. One topic that was brought up was that Roku is the only service that lets users stream porn to their TV. That might be a deal breaker for...

    Re: Angry Birds dive bombing

    When I lived in Iowa I would always get attacked by red winged black birds in late spring/early summer. They'd wait for me to pass them on the road, then come from behind and peck my helmet. A few...

    Re: Roku vs. Apple TV

    We have a Mohu antenna that we use for over-the-air TV (28 channels... 18 in English). We stream Netflix and Amazon Prime through our Wii. Our Blueray player can also stream those services, but...
  20. Re: Alumni Verification Now Due- has everyone else done this?

    You don't necessarily have to verify anything. If you have moved and signed up for mail forwarding, they'll get a notice from the USPS with your new info, which they wouldn't get if they didn't snail...
