    Re: I can not believe this story in the Rag

    Seems like he hit the nail on the head. Obviously, as witnessed by the far from capacity crowds, and overall poor performance, alot of other peeps and former fans agree with him.


    Thanks for the link, otherwise I wouldn't have even seen the article.

    There is a reason why newspapers across the country have lost subs, completely worthless article. I assume there will be one on why nobody gives a crap about hawkeye basketball?

    This is a blog entry, not a newspaper article. I don't think we'll be seeing it in the print edition, for example. Unfortunately, it also has some perfectly valid points.

    Yes and it has everything to do with the internet and papers early on making their product available for free on line, thus eroding away paying subscriptions. Content has little to do with it.

    But hey, keep on hating on a small paper for all the ill that is the ISU football program. ISU brought this on themselfs way back in the early 80's with bad coaching hires, little internal support, and absolutley no investing back into the program. This is all on ISU. But keep on blaming others.

    To me it isn't if the attendance is better than some people think. In the end it is what it is - raw numbers. Second to last in both overall attendance and percentage (80%) of attendance in the Big 12. And very close to being dead last in both, which after seeing all the empty seats in most games at JTS this season I would bet ISU will be dead last in the Big 12 this season.

    Re: I can not believe this story in the Rag

    Try and find a similar article in the rag about the Hawkeyes when they were enjoying loosing seasons from 67 to 80. They were the laughing stock of the big 10. Fans continued to attend games thoughout this time because they were all in drunken stuppers. I yearn for the Jerry Burns, Ray Nagel, Frank Lauterbur and Bob Commings days. What great memories!!

    True but it's BS that register would put crap like this up. Wouldn't be for it even if they were talking about Iowa, all it does is hurt the state.

    Apparently you didn't read the articles about Iowa bball last year and how the Hawks only averaged 4,000 in actual attendance.

    Enough with this "woe is me" syndrome that so many have.

    If you think we are a joke of a program now, get rid of football and see what happens to the athletic department and the Ames community. Anyone who agrees with this article is an idiot.

    Is a subscription to the DM Rag really worth it?...... No way would I pay for that worthless garbage. I'm still bitter about getting rid of the Agriculture section.
