    Register Facebook Article

    I think it's funny how this article from this morning's DMR goes out of its way to bring ISU into the whole "Facebook" fray.

    They are acting like social networking is a new phenomenon. And then someone went to the work of looking up every ISU player to see if he had a Facebook/MySpace page, and whether there were any pictures that included alcohol there?

    Talk about looking for a scandal where none exists. That is junk reporting to pad their article since they couldn't talk to anyone from Iowa.

    I could see it a valid point to get someones perspective, and since its Iowa under the radar right now, you have to turn to Iowa State. But to specifically point out Iowat State players in regarding an issue that doesn't deal with our school directly is bad press. Its like pointing fingers in another direction. Even with that though, when you put your pics up for the public to see, its bound to come out, so that is bad judgement on everyone's part.

    I personally do not have an account, but my spouse does, and I tell her repeately to take anything of me off. This would be a valid reason of why, besides identity theft, and other issues surrounding those sites.

    Oh I'm sure Witosky is probably digging around on some dirt somewhere. Heck, he did do an article once on a fire alarm at the Jacobsen building like it was big news.

    I will almost guarantee you, when this story came out, Chizik spoke to the team about being smart with what they put on their Facebook pages, etc.

    I don't know for certain, yet I'd be surprised of that or something close to it wasn't conveyed to the team.

    Re: Register Facebook Article

    I think it's an important article and I thougth Blythe made a good point. Who's to know who has the accounts and the guys shouldn't be posting photos of them drinking underage.

    I can see a "no facebook/myspace" profiles rule coming down from the athletic department soon.

    Two things:

    1. I was schocked to see the pictures on there. I don't think they should have posted them.

    2. I, too, think that they shouldn't have said anything about the Iowa State student athletes, but they really can't prove anything by it.

    Re: Register Facebook Article

    I already thought of an excuse for them.
    1. The $200 + worth of alchohol. - All those guys get that crap for free. There is usually about 5 rich white chicks supplying this for them.

    2. My excuse for having that much money....I won a huge poker tourney I put on at the Apartment

    The problem with all this (other than the Credit card thing) is that it is all something that you can't prove. I can hold up a can of beer as a 19 year old and take my picture with it all I want. You can't prove it had anything in it. (everyone knows it probably does, but you can't prove it)
    I can just say I was trying to be funny or fit it. Athletes need to be smarter about this crap.
