    Amazing ISU picture

    Here is a picture of soph QB Austin McBeth. This might be one of the great ISU pictures I've ever seen. I can't put my finger on it but it is very powerful, especially behind the meaning of the plaque "Honor Before Victory". I think that sums up ISU football.

    One thing that probably makes it powerful is the proximity of his hand to the plaque without actually touching. It builds a sense of anticipation; anticipation of something meaningful and great.

    I think we're over analyzing this one. It's a kid on our team (who I've never heard of) touching a plaque that we just put up a few years ago. Not that much history there. I don't know, maybe I'm an insensitive *****, but I guess I"m not getting off on that picture.

    I am pretty sure that plaque was outside the old CWF.

    Personally, the quote annoys me. Should be "Victory with Honor". Cannot change history I guess.

    I know the video board has to go, but that structure is a beacon to south, expecially witht he huge I-state logo. And thats where the endzone film which is probably important tot he coaches comes from.

    Hopefully they can leave the tower and just remove the video board.

    I like the quote because Honor last a lifetime and victory can be fleating.

    I agree. The quote is correct because you can easily have victory without honor. It reminds the student athletes to conduct themselves in an honorable manor in all phases of life no matter what happens on a football field.




    Thank you to Kagavi & amestoplease for the sweet designs!
