    They played yesterday. We didn't.



    What ever happened to truth, justice and the American Way?

    And they probably assume that someone might read their Saturday paper too (I don't).

    Re: Des Moines Rag

    Nothing "little brother" about it. If Iowa had a game like we had on Friday night, the Rag would have had a special section, and be running daily articles about it for the following two weeks. When ISU has a monumental victory it is forgotten by Day 2, and story gets buried on their website.

    Closet Hock fans' opinions will differ (naturally).

    ISU was on the front page of the entire paper yesterday, let alone dominated the entire sports section.

    Except the top of todays sport section talks about ISU being the the national spotlight yesterday.

    what story is above the fold today? Oh yeah, the one that says "Cyclones savor national spotlight."

    nothing to see here.

    Re: Des Moines Rag

    I can't believe that piece of trash still bothers some of you. It hasn't been good for years. And, what you get from it isn't worth the paper its printed on. I certainly wouldn't pay for it and if I were you I would just stop giving them money. And that goes for the Register too.

    My wife and my inlaws ***** if I we dont have it at the house. So yes naturally I look at it. So ya I will complain about it because I have to. No I didnt know they had a Sat addition so I didnt see the Iowa St coverage. BUT still sunday is probably the most read paper, I sure would have like a little more.

    Re: Des Moines Rag

    I was a big fan that Iowa had front page of sports and 2 page spread in this mornings paper in the Press-Citizen. Iowa City paper, I know, but that's where I live. Iowa State had 2 columns. Oh, and yesterdays? 8 paragraphs at the bottom of the front page of the sports section. Hooray media bias... (although somewhat acceptable and expected considering it's an Iowa City paper)

    We played friday we were on the front page on Saturday. Hawks played Saturday they were in the Sunday. Simple. If the whole paper was devoted to the clones you guys would still find a reason to complain about it.

    probably, but this was HUGE. I dont think 2 days would have killed anyone.
