    "All players eligible"

    On one level, it is just good information in today's press release about all Iowa State players being eligible for the bowl. On another level, it could be viewed as a shot at Iowa and their unexplained ineligibility situations.

    What do you think? Are we taking a shot at Iowa?




    Bowl Ticket Mark Tops 5,000; All Players Eligible

    AMES, Iowa - There was plenty of good football news in the Iowa State football camp Thursday. Firstly, Iowa State fans have now secured 5,002 tickets for the Dec. 30 New Era Pinstripe Bowl in New York City's Yankee Stadium. Kickoff is set for 2:22 CST on ESPN.

    Iowa State head coach Paul Rhoads confirmed Thursday that all of his team's student-athletes are eligible for the game. The Cyclones will depart for New York on Christmas Day morning. The Yankee Stadium Field has been readied for the game.

    Simply reporting the news. If people want to take it as a shot, that's their own choice.

    "all eligible" is a beautiful phrase. Outstanding job by the players and staff to take care of business.

    Re: "All players eligible"

    I don't think so. We have had guys be declared academically ineligible as late as pregame warmups I believe (Boise several years ago) and I think there's always been 1 or 2 that didn't qualify so I don't think this is a shot at anyone.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    Is it a shot to do what you're suppose to do?

    Why would it be a shot at Iowa by any stretch of the imagination?

    Re: "All players eligible"

    ...does this include Tiller and Jennert?

    Edit: Sorry, didn't see the thread specifically about this. Nothing to see here.

    Good job by the football team. Also Fred said last night that the basketball team is setting grade point records.

    Re: "All players eligible"

    Hey, I know this is gonna come off really corny, but it's never stopped me before I guess.

    I really am so verrrrrrry proud of these coaches and players.

    Fantastic job in the classroom which shows me just how classy these guys are.

    THANK YOU

    Stupid question, and I know that, but 'all eligible' means even players like Tiller & Jennert, right?
