    On the Rise

    That is right. A national magazine says ISU is on the rise. Plus they take a shot at Iowa.

    I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.

    Re: On the Rise

    I just saw the comment on USC playing Nebraska, kinda like watching Nebraska play ISU in the 90's, very true I guess.

    I lived at 125 Campus, it was a good place to live, not the cheapest but still good.

    Did anyone read the comments below the article? A lot of Cyclone bashing...

    Re: On the Rise

    Meh, let them talk. Dan Hawkins unable to get the offense rolling at CU is one thing, but Chizik and Bolt have done a great job with the defense compared to how they were in 2006.

    Re: On the Rise

    Tom Dienhart is the biggest idiot in journalism. This guy flip flops more than Mitt Romney. This is the same guy who said we hired the wrong person, that Chizik is doomed, that ISU will never amount to anything, etc. etc. Perhaps he found a moment where he can kiss our fans' a$$es to score some brownie points. Either way, this guy is a poor excuse for a good journalist.

    Re: On the Rise

    Am I the only one that reads that article and thinks it is being sarcastic? Makes it sound like if the only game we win is against Iowa than that is A-Okay. Just my take I guess.

    Re: On the Rise

    I think most of it's tongue-in-cheek, too. Duke winning their first game in 22 tries doesn't necessarily make them on the rise. I think if Deinhart were a bit more serious about his column, he'd list Kansas as the program on the rise.

    Re: On the Rise

    The comments on the bottom are just ignorant. Apparently people dont understand how hard it is for a coach like Chizik to walk into a crumbling team and win right away. Just stupid people.

    To me it seems all the teams on the rise are ones that had a good game last week, whether it was Duke snapping their losing streak or Flordia proving how good they are.

    I really like the fact that ISU has raised their own expectations. The fact people were questioning things after only TWO GAMES EVER AS HEAD COACH might be a bit extreme but it is a sign that we aren't going to tolerate mediocracy anymore.
