    Good edition, love the fact ESPN picked it up. Got a question for you Chris, what kind of dog is that?

    If you ask the basketball analysts outside the state of Iowa I think you would be surprised to hear their responses. Iowa was pegged as a preseason top 5 team by one ESPN analyst and is ranked in the vast, vast majority of preseason top 25 polls

    Firmly agree on the Bachelorette comment, Ames has a forehead like a drive-in movie. Scary big.

    That guy has a huge forehead but I am sure he is loaded and will continue to make more money being that he works on wall street and went to an Ivy league school, plus it sounds like the guy travels all around the world.

    I love it that White is thinking big and there's no such thing as too much publicity, especially when it's free and on ESPN.

    I like that Royce wants to bring a National Title to Ames. Players are supposed to dream of that. As long as he doesn't guarantee it I don't mind.

    Still have to come up with a lifetime of excuses for why she is staring at his forehead while talking to him.

    Re: Day after Monday musings: 7-19 Edition

    I feel you. My girlfriend plans on being a vet (we'll both be going to ISU in the fall) and even though she's like 8 years away from being a vet, she already thinks she's certified haha. So when it comes to animals or our dog..i keep my mouth shut.

    Paisley is an English Cream Golden Retriever. It's a bit of a rare breed. We got her from a breeder in La Porte City.

    Best of luck to you and your girlfriend. Being engaged/married to a vet student is not easy. That place owns them for four years. Tell her to follow her dreams though. Mine did and she couldn't be happier. With the job that is. She likely settled for a clown like me.
