    Seriously. They don't send someone to Lubbock, so they try to instead immediately interview the closest rhoads they can find?

    I am trying to figure out the criticism of the story.

    IMO, it is more or less a "feel good story" about Rhoads' brother who had attended every game that CPR had coached at ISU previously. Nothing negative in the story at all. And shows how Rhoads is a "family type" of person. And just how close Rhoads is to his family and why he is at home at ISU.

    IMO, the story is favorable. I do not understand the thread title.

    It appears to be written for the Ankeny Paper and the Register is just sharing it.

    Anyone else notice there was zero coverage of ISU's win in Sunday's paper?

    Re: The Rag is at it again....

    Wait, so his brother doesn't show and the team plays it's best game in CPR's tenure? Sounds like we have found the problem. He is no longer allowed to go to games until we can disprove this theory.

    Not to defend the evil rag, but I'm guessing that had more to do with the version that you read. My Register on Sunday had a bunch of coverage and the papers that go out further then the metro probably did not since they had to go out earlier. Just saying!

    Huh? It was the largest picture on the sports page. What I didn't understand was the fact that the rest of the stories were at the end of the section behind iowa, UNI and high school sports.

    Actually, the Register sent Andrew Logue down to Lubbock. He was on Murph and Andy yesterday.

    I called on Sunday and cancelled the DSM register

    We beat a top 20 team on the road by 34 points
    Iowa loses to one of the worst teams in history

    Marc Hansen writes about Nebraska?! It's the DES MOINES REGISTER!! Why the hell is he writing about Nebraska?
