    Flight Tracker: Sad News

    It appears that ISU has asked flightaware to not allow tracking of its plane.
    The good old days of following the progress of N991SU seems no longer.

    They apparently don't realize how much fun we had doing that...

    Well that stinks. Can't they let a few stalkers have their fun?


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    Is this not a public institution? Can we not demand access as we pay taxes? The greenies say we should be able to watch recruiting by tracing planes just like rivals does.

    *Sniff, sniff*

    We had some good times together N991SU. You will be missed.

    Bad job outta you, Jamie Pollard.

    I wonder though, why now? They had to know it was happening during or at least soon after Chizik was hired - so why wait?

    I wonder what he's got up his sleeve...

    It's a University plane, not an Athletic Department plane. Maybe Pollard had nothing to do with the decision.

    Who volunteers to grab a GPS, and stow away on the plane?

    Re: Flight Tracker: Sad News

    I have such fond memories of tracking that plane. You'd think after rising up and demanding new coaches we could do the same for the flight tracking.

    Would there still be online access to CF?

    Who services ISU's plane? I have friends in low places all over FBOs in central Iowa.

    Re: Flight Tracker: Sad News

    Could this be Pollard's way of telling us there's no need to track the plane anymore because he has his pieces in place?


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?
    Maria Sharapova: Don't you beat up other guys for a living? I don't know how to answer this.
