    So, just out of curiousity....

    Did anyone else read Sean Keeler's column this morning? Not exactly very complimentary to the Hawks from someone whom a lot of Cyclone fans on this site claim is a "Hawkeye Homer". In fact, when reading it I seemed to recognize a lot of the same "back-handed compliments" towards the Hawks that posters here accuse Keeler of using when he writes about the Cyclones. And, can it be true? There is at least one comment by a Hawkeye fan wondering how on earth Keeler could have gotten a job at the Register.

    Look, I don't agree with everything Keeler writes myself. But to beleive that an opinion columnist should be a media cheerleader for your favorite team (which a fair number of Cyclone fans and even Hawkeye fans apparently do) is just plain silly.

    I'll post the link to the column;

    Keeler is just an azz all around. When you have zero talent in life and at journalism you have to resort to just trying to get a rise out of people.

    You write stuff to inflame the crowd and then they want to go hang him. Someday they might. Run him out of town on a hand railcar.

    He's said he doesn't care for Iowa State.

    He's just calling it like it is. Iowa has lost 8 straight conference games. They've become the doormat of the Big 10+1.
