    Athlon sucks

    Only Big 12 team not on a cover this season. Sigh.

    Re: Athlon sucks

    I am sure it is a business decision...not a commentary of our program...or at least a direct commentary on our program. If Athlon was going to make a lot of money putting Iowa State on its cover...they would!

    I sent them an email stating I would bought one, but Iowa State is not on the cover again this year so no sale.

    Re: Athlon sucks

    Every team appears once, except OSU who is on the same cover twice. They couldn't just squeeze a little ISU guy on there to replace one of the OSU guys?

    Re: Athlon sucks

    What are the odds that there is a Hawkeye fan behind the scenes at Athlon that is responsible? You would think the cost of adding ISU to the KU, KSU Mizzouri addition would easily be recouped by sales to ISU fans.

    What email address did you use? I was looking for one but did not find it. I propose an email campaign by the folks here at CF to let Athlon know how we feel.

    Athlon is the worst one anyways. Their predictions are usually a joke for the most part

    What? You mean those covers are REGIONAL? My Hawk friends all tell me Iowa is on the cover of that national magazine every year just because they're that good.

    You're telling me Kansas "footbal" fans preordered 1000 copies? Why do I doubt this?
