    Another good Keeler Write up

    The gap in our economy is between what we have and what we think we ought to have--and that is a moral problem, not an economic one. - Paul Heyne

    That doesn't mean he's not an idiot.

    I'm all for the "carrot and stick" approach. What's his incentive to write good articles if he gets bashed even when he does?

    How about the old "stick and not a stick" approach - give him hell when he writes something stupid, and ignore him when he's not being an idiot?

    That's a non-issue.

    I didn't read the article. After seeing how many times he's needlessly dumped on ISU I stopped reading anything he writes.

    I read the posts here first, and that helps me decide how curious I am either way.

    Re: Another good Keeler Write up

    The column is fine for the most part, because, obviously that's going to be the angle. But, this line made me laugh:
    After all, her husband helped build the Iowa State roster that’s 4-0 right now;
    Really? He's going to get some credit for the hot start when the team barely had enough players to scrimmage when he was on his way out the door? I guess "building the roster" is one way to describe it.

    I laughed at that line myself. What a joke.

    "...he helped build the ISU roster that is now 4-0..." Are you ******* kidding me? He may have got three of these guys here, but he didn't do **** in making them the players they are right now.

    I laughed at that line myself. What a joke.

    To be fair, he did recruit JVB and Ejim. Without those two today, we lose.

    As for Keeler, it amuses me to end that a certain contingent of Cyclone fans could witness Keeler rush into a burning building and single-handedly save Paul Rhoads, Jamie Pollard, and Fred Hoiberg and still scream to the high heaves about how much he hatest Iowa State. You guys who do rip on Keeler no matter what he writes do understand that he is not a paid employee of the Iowa State PR department, right? Why do you hold him to that standard?
