    Hilton Coliseum was specifically built to hold in sound with a solid concrete structure, steel doors, and a crowd that sits just a few feet from the court. With a fan base that frequently ranks among the nations largest crowds, players from opposing teams, as well as Iowa State, have said that the floor has shaken due to the loudness of the crowd

    "...what you've just said ... is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul."

    Poli sci. But thats really the same as design. It is kind of hard to believe though that this kid is a senior and he still hasn't realized who pays the bills for the university.

    Also, if he's going to whine about the tractors, I say the ag and engineering people whine about all the 'art' around campus.

    "To put it simply, it was to educate students in both practical and liberal schools. "

    Really cause I could have sworn it was based on agriculture and other things vital to the state.

    from the Iowa State history website

    "which shall be connected with the entire agricultural interests of the state."

    He probably thinks that all of his tuition money and what the government spends is more than enough to cover everything at ISU and then some.

    Nope after some investigative facebook stalking, it appears he is a hardcore liberal. Which explains everything.

    Re: What has happened to VEISHEA?

    I'm miffed by the fact that he wasn't whining about green tractors with yellow wheels...shameless plug for spouse's employer. The guy needs to leave his idealistic haven and venture out into the real world.

    Supposedly a political science major wrote and submitted it. There's a couple quotes in it I really like.

    "... I turned the corner by the library and noticed three Caterpillar and Case IH tractors down the road, parked neatly in the grass in front of Davidson Hall."

    Ok..I know it's the farm kid coming out in me but theres a Challenger (not caterpillar) tractor, a Deere tractor, and a Case IH combine parked in front of Davidson Hall. If you can't even name the equipment correctly, that's strikes 1-2-3 right there with me and you have lost all credibility.

    "Nothing says "let us come together and honor the humble beginnings of Iowa State University" like letting giant, multinational corporations invade our campus and set up forward operating bases of arrogant advertising and patronization."

    This is where the guy really starts becoming an idiot. Those pieces of machinery are donated for Veishea week from local implement dealers and parked there by the Ag. Systems Technology Club. So I'm pretty stumped to which multinational corporations he is speaking of. If he would've taken the time to venture over to the equipment he would've noticed a sign in the cab stating what implement dealer in was being borrowed from. This has been a tradition that has been going on since at least 1957 to my knowledge.

    "You know, the one week of the year in which Iowa State whores out its pristine — chain-link fence filled — campus to agriculture implementers so that they can have a new, temporary showroom all over the landscape."

    Temporary Showroom? Are you kidding? There are SOOOO many students here who are looking into purchase a new 300,000 combine right now. Give me a break.

    I hate stupid people.

    Amen. I really don't envy the guys that have to mow around that stuff every week.
