    Todd Neeley on Iowa State

    Just to fan the fires a bit..

    Take That

    Remember when Nebraska joined the Big Ten? The reaction coming from Big 12 schools was all over the chart.

    Kansas officials practically begged NU not to leave. Boone Pickens (representing Oklahoma State’s view, I guess, since he practically owns the program in Stillwater), said “What’s Nebraska got to offer?”

    And remember Iowa State fans?

    Well they were critics of Nebraska making the move — a strange bit of criticism coming from a fan base that has watched its Cyclones flounder for so long– especially against Nebraska.

    Iowa State has won just 18 games in the series since 1896. Yet, a preview story in the Des Moines Register Wednesday somewhat lamented the end of a “rivalry,” Iowa State football: Nebraska rivalry comes to an end | desmoinesregister.com | The Des Moines Register.

    You’re kidding, right?

    He's right. I thought that whole rivalry piece in the DMR was dumb from the beginning.

    Re: Todd Neeley on Iowa State

    I agree with most of his article.


    except for his tidbit about Ames middle of Nowhere, Iowa...


    Nebraska is the most godawful place I have ever been. What a desolate wasteland of animal poop and double-wides.


    Carrying the banner for ISU.

    Re: Todd Neeley on Iowa State

    It has been a pretty lopsided "rivalry" if you want to call it that but over that last decade, ISU has made the series respectable.

    A win tomorrow for the good guys would be one of the biggest, if not THE biggest win in Cyclone history. For all the beat downs we have been on the wrong side of in this series, a win tomorrow will give us the almighty "scoreboard for life" in Lincoln and Ames. How sweet would that be?

    Anyone from Nebraska calling Ames the middle of nowhere is the height of irony.

    Re: Todd Neeley on Iowa State

    I missed the part where an ISU fan has called it a rivalry?

    Re: Todd Neeley on Iowa State

    Who cares what some idiot with a blog has to say.

    With him being a Nebraska fan I'm just impressed that he's able to pull his knuckles up off the ground long enough to actually type.

    He writes for the Hastings Tribune, so not just a blogger.


    I don't do signatures. Blondes, brunettes, and red heads are a different story.

    Yeah, I'd say he's not much more than a blogger.

    Speaking of middle of nowhere...

    Fantastic. I guess my next question is, who cares about the Hastings Tribune outside of Hastings (which I'm guessing is a town in Nebraska?).
