    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...
  2. 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...
  3. 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...
  4. 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...
  5. 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...

    Re: Worst Places to Live In Iowa (article)

    My guess is the reason for this is population density. In southern Iowa, most counties tend to have one larger town of around 8-10K. In northern Iowa, you have 3-4 towns in the 1-2K range in most...

    Re: BWW Ankeny

    Have you tried Hurricanes in the LinnDale Mall strip? A little pricey, but I really like their wings and sauce. It's basically a tropical/asian fusion themed wings place with beach decor inside. ...
  9. Re: Niang interview on CFH leaving, "you really couldn’t hold a grudge.”

    If anyone can understand and appreciate what Hoiberg did, it's the players. They're essentially in the same situation he was. They like ISU and appreciate what the university and program have done...

    Re: *** COACHING SEARCH THREAD: Monday, June 8 ***

    Not that I'm one of the conspiracy theorists, but the situation you just described was a sham interview. I agree, it is a common practice, but it's also commonly known to be a sham. The external...
  11. Re: ROSENFELS: "Don't be mad it's over, be glad it happened"

    I agree with the quoted sentiment, just not the last part of his article. I understand Sage's point, he's an athlete and a competitor. He and Hoiberg both want to face the challenge of competing at...

    Re: Cyclone fans becoming unbearable

    You, and others like you, seem to be too caught up in the cult of personality to get perspective on this. Based on your statements, you seem to be more of a fan of Fred Hoiberg the man than ISU...

    Re: How will the players react??

    Well, I should apologize then for my first statement. The point I was trying to make is that a lot of people who -don't- know Fred Hoiberg act as if they do and defend him like a close friend or...

    Re: How will the players react??

    Well, fair enough. My point still stands. If Georgesfan is actual a family member of Georges', (or a Hoiberg) well, I sure look like an idiot. :twitcy:

    Re: Hoiberg Watch 2015: Monday, June 1 Open Thread

    Was it? Even very early on it was being reported that the Bulls previous coach would be fired pretty much unless they won the east division. It's pretty likely that Hoiberg knew there was a very good...

    Re: How will the players react??

    Do -you- know him? Of all Cyclone fans or even long time Ames residents, less than 1% can claim that they know Fred Hoiberg on a personal level. I don't think Hoiberg is some great manipulator who's...

    Re: How will the players react??

    That is likely true, but doesn't really matter to this situation. The question is how long has Matt Thomas known about the deal and did he know for a fact that Hoiberg was leaving when he gave the...

    Re: How will the players react??

    He had other options though. If he actually did know or have good reason to believe that Hoiberg was going to leave at that point, he didn't have to say "Yes, I think he is going to be the Bulls'...

    Re: Who Gets The Credit

    There's a better example: most people don't give Chizik credit for Rhoads' bowl victory in year 1. In fact, just the opposite, they say that while Chizik was able to get decent players he heavily...

    Re: Pre-Memorial Day Hoiberg NBA Update

    Most likely, the reason is that dumping a big NBA buyout into the contract would be something Hoiberg is unlikely to accept. Think about it: if you want to go to the NBA, but aren't sure when if...
