    Women's diving: No family pressure for freshman

    Hey guys, this is a story on Nicolette Freeman, the younger sister of former Hawkeye all-American diver Deidre Freeman. She's got a strong athletic pedigree, but she doesn't feel any extra pressure because of it. She draws strength from it. Let me know what you think!*

    *I know most of you won't care about the actual subject, since it's about a Hawkeye athlete. I'm more interested in what you think of the writing and the story itself. Just pretend it's about an ISU athlete, if that helps make it more readable for you.

    Re: Women's diving: No family pressure for freshman

    Why would she be concerned with women's driving? Just because women are a hazzard on the road doesn't mean they need a whole article on this.

    Re: Women's diving: No family pressure for freshman

    I kid you not, posts like that give me a heart attack lol. Anytime someone says something like that, I get paranoid and think that maybe I had a typo that slipped through editing. If it's in the article, then I have to look the copy on my computer. There's been one time I did actually make the mistake. I was ****** for a couple days
