    Since the CR Gazette has a definate Hawk bias (understandable gicen location of the paper) I don't see this as a shock or even really debatable.

    I do think there was the ulterior motive of hanging in Indy for the weekend as compared to Manhatten.....

    That said.....even though I'm a Hawk fan I'm more interested in the Clone game than the BCG. Hope the Clones win....

    They prolly hired "press box jersey": the doosh nozzle that wore a hawk jersey in the press box of the ISU/Iowa game.

    Another Texas tech style mishap for the newspaper? I believe someone sent their crew to Minnesota instead of lubbock, Texas.

    Prove em wrong again cyclones!!!!!!!!!

    Re: CR Gazette to be at B1G Championship and Not in Manhattan

    CR is the second largest base of ISU alumni in the state. It's more even between Hawkeyes and Cyclones than anywhere on the east side of the state even though it has close proximity to Iowa City. CR Tailgate Tour draws the biggest crowd of any stop.

    But this is how things are.

    Does anyone in Iowa give a frick about the Big 10 championship game?

    I'm guessing they planned the trip thinking Iowa would be in it (lol), or they're getting paid to be a seat filler (lol, again).

    they can't even sell out the Big 10 championship game, so how much interest is there really. At least the Big 12 sells out their title game when they had it.

    Former D.M. Register writer Rob Gray has written stories on the Cyclones for the Gazette this year,mainly stories during the week leading up to games and after home games. The Gazette hasn't sent their own reporter to an ISU road game,except Iowa of course,for several years.

    Cut them a break. They got paid $75/each to serve as seat fillers.

    Rob Gray is on Twitter https://twitter.com/#!/ROBWGRAY

    He has some quotes from the MBB players I haven't seen elsewhere

    I've found I can get near instantaneous ISU athletics info from twitter, just follow the ISU contingent of sports reporters

    Cancel it. I did years ago and have NEVER missed it. Spend the money on CloneZone or something else.

    Once in a while someone will bring a gazette in to work and I'll take a look -- there just isn't anything in there to read anymore, sports or news. It's not your father's newspaper, print is kind of dead.

    The only thing worth subscribing to in print anymore (IMHO) is The Economist. And the Victoria's Secret catalog.
