    Des Moines Register

    Looks like we were lucky the ISU/Iowa game was played in Ames this year, or else no pictures of ISU would have made it into the Year in review of photographs the DM reg puts out...

I dont subscribe to the DM Reg.. So just o observation... that is all...

    Re: Des Moines Register

    53 photos. 5 of Iowa. 1 of ISU. The only ISU one was the James White TD vs Iowa. So not one ISU photo in there by itself. Normally I would say to stop whining or something like that, but that is pretty statistically significant when it comes to coverage.

    Let the Des Moines register cover the hawks, they suck this year. It's funny.

    Re: Des Moines Register

    Why would the Register have pictures of the OSU game. We lost. Remember, it was reported in the Register shortly after the game was over

    Re: Des Moines Register

    Ok, I understand the argument some have that if you don't like it, don't read it.

    But it's pretty pathetic that an incomplete pass in a loss to Michigan State, and 3 shots from a win over Michigan are more impressive than the biggest win in ISU history. Also, the old guy sitting in the stands makes it look like noone is at the game. So we need 3 pics from Iowas only impressive win on the year and nothing from ISU taking out #2 Okie State?

    It's probably because the rag didn't have anyone competent enough to take a picture of the OSU game. They were probably all at the HS state championship game. Ridiculous.

    Even worse, no pictures of the Missouri River flood. Whoever chose those pics needs to find a different line of work.....

    Re: Des Moines Register

    To those of you who make fun of those who bash the Register for unfair treatment, remember we are talking about the newspaper that published a Marc Hansen article congratulating ISU for a great effort in losing to OSU moments after the game had ended.

    I think the person who started this thread makes a very valid point.

    Ha, yeah wasn't that Marc Hansen? I don't really give a **** since I don't read the DMR but I was a little surprised that no OSU photos made it into the top 50. There were lots of photo ops at that game...

    The collage of pictures is not the biggest and/or best events of 2011, its the best pictures that were taken. Its a tribute to the photographers, not to the events.

    I think that actually makes the photo album more pathetic.

    Re: Des Moines Register

    ISU beating OSU, top story nationally. Old man in the stands at Iowa Michigan game - more important to the dmrag. Great "journalism".

    The rag sucks. I wouldn't be surprised if 5 years from now the register is just a local newspaper and not statewide.
