    What really bothers me is that the DMR prints it with the title sounding as fact.

    Re: Hmmm . . .does it seem a little odd that the RAG

    You know it is amazing that "The Paper Iowa Used To Depend On" has 2 stories this morning trying to point out fan reactions at games. One is the milquetoast reaction of Hawk-Husker fans at Lincoln (got to have something to get wound up about!) and 2 someone sending them an email from Stillwater upset. I must admit I have watched the replay dozens of times of the end of the game and if fans wanted to incite they would have been in OSU players faces and I didn't see one player even spoken to. We celebrated and for the register to post this on the morning of our next big game takes journalism?? to a new low!! Shame on them!!

    Re: Hmmm . . .does it seem a little odd that the RAG

    My guess - A Iowa Hawkeye Troll.

    Seriously.

    Every single Okie State fan I even brushed by in or out of the stadium I saw receiving condolences in regard to the accident, or meaningful but spirited condolences on the outcome of the football game.

    I can imagine maybe 1 or 2 people out of the 53,000 so drunk or stupid to say what the writer claims, but the odds of that person saying such moronic spew and the recipient writing to the Register are astronomical.

    This had to be something that originated from an Iowa City-based point of view. They've proven time and time again that their standards allow them to troll CF Boards and other outlets and still think it is funny.

    The Register fell for a prank - again.

    The same newspaper that ran a Marc Hansen article moments after the game that said Iowa State lost. But everybody on this site said I was just over reacting.

    Re: Hmmm . . .does it seem a little odd that the RAG

    All this is boys is the Locust Street Liar telling ISU fans that no matter what YOUR TEAM is NOT as good as their beloved Hawkeyes.....



    That was just a disgruntled Hawk fan giving the Liar more ammunition to make Iowa State look bad....


    Get used to it boys because its never gonna end.....

    I didn't actually observe this behavior myself, but I heard it happened. That is worth printing.

    The poor Hawk fans at the Rag have to watch ISU pass them by as they lay another egg. Thus, they make a lame attempt to rain on the ISU parade. It is pretty sad when this is the best they have.

    The epic battle they have invested much ink in manufacturing was a total flop, and now they are acting like little babies. It is fun to watch.

    Sounds like Dale Neikirk is a sore loser and ****** about OSU not making it to the NC game. I can see a Mizzou or Hawk saying that, but not ISU.

    Re: Hmmm . . .does it seem a little odd that the RAG

    Congrats to the RAG for picking out something to pick about from our OSU victory. Well, we whom are better behaved cannot babysit the rest who make poor choices. I heard two people try and get others to join them in chanting "overrated" but no one joined them. Every team has fans we'd rather not be part of our crowd. Apparently a few fans at Jack Trice sum up the RAG's feelings about the rest of us.

    Re: Hmmm . . .does it seem a little odd that the RAG

    The register is a terrible newspaper, it is borderline CR gazette terrible. I loved the Sunday Gazette last week, they didnt report on the game saturday because it happened late so it was in the Sunday edition. The Squawks got a 3 page color layout of a win at Purdue, and we got 1 page black and white after the biggest win in school history AGAINST A TOP 2 opponent. Pathetic.
