    TTU Recruits can't find campus

    Found this gem from a guy at work. Apparently, TTU doesn't care to recruit kids who can look at a map.

    Re: TTU Recruits can't find campus

    Hey my mother-in-law stopped in Ames on her way to Des Moines in the fog a few weeks a go, stopped at the Kum and Go near West Town Pub and asked the girl working where Ames was since she was lost. And she drives this route about twice a month.......

    Sad huh....

    She also has a hard time remember to put the rear hatch back down on her suv when she puts something in there. Drove down all of University in DSM once with Christmas gifts sitting on the each ready to fall out.

    Some people have zero sense of direction.......I mean zero! Not a surprising story.

    I would guess they got on highway 59 thinking they were on I45 and just kept driving.


    They say country music speaks to the heart. Unfortunately, it has to go through your ears to get there.

    That's nothing new to TTU; Byron Hanspard couldn't find any classrooms

    I knew a fella that was driving home from Ames to quad cities area. He realized he was lost when he saw the "Welcome to Missouri" sign.

    Re: TTU Recruits can't find campus

    I ended up in Gary, Indiana once on my way from Ames to Chicago. Of course that might have had something to do with the mini keg we had in the van...

    That's like saying I was on my way to Des Moines and ended up in Ankeny. So sad you had to back track like 10 min.

    "There are five real good recruits in the state. We got three of them. One couldn’t get into school, and the other went to (the University of) Iowa...which is about the same thing." - Coach Johnny Orr

    Re: TTU Recruits can't find campus

    In high school I once drove to Ames while en route to Altoona

    My HS gf left Omaha to head east, made it to Lincoln before she thought something seemed wrong.

    Re: TTU Recruits can't find campus

    A coworker told a story one time of two brothers going to U of IL in Champaign.

    They were driving back to the Quad Cities, but instead of getting on I74 going west, they got on I-57 going north. They finally figured out something was wrong when they got to Joliet. The saddest part was, instead of just getting on I80 West, they turned around and drove BACK to Champaign on I57 to catch I74 back.

    Awesome. Seriously, what's so hard about looking at a map? The gf refuses to and will only rely on her iPhone's GPS. Fun stuff when it loses contact and she becomes hopelessly lost.
