    Bleacher Report - What to steal from JTS

    Bleacher Report notes: One of the newest and biggest video boards belongs to Iowa State. Iowa State just installed a new board last year, and this beauty is among the top 15 largest in the nation.

    While the video board is nice, I think the turf is the true gem of the stadium.

    I concur. It stands up throughout the season with little evidence of use. I have not seen a better field anywhere!

    They can't be brought down, by 1000s of students what makes you think they could be stolen.

    #16 is pretty excellent

    Time to do the Jayhawk fans a favor and take Charlie Weis before he even gets started. Weis' track in the college ranks is far from impressive, and not much will change at Kansas.

    Yet somehow you think someone could steel the scoreboard? Just curious.

    They must not have noticed the snipers on top of the Godzillatron.

    We will see what happens but hiring Charlie looks a lot like getting a date with that hot girl from High School after 30 years. There is some history of being good, but it is hard to see right now....

    Re: Bleacher Report - What to steal from JTS

    In regards to stealing the goal post. I remember when we won at Iowa City for the first time in 98 and for the next few years tearing down the posts was a every win theme. I was down on the field testing out the new "tear down proof" post with no success. The next win someone snuck in a socket set and started to unbolt the post on the north in. Gene Smith was AD then and he started pushing kids out of the way screaming about someone getting hurt. He was a scary dude when he was mad. They would have come down though had he not been there!

    Re: Bleacher Report - What to steal from JTS

    I was in the Utah lockeroom when ISU played them in Ames. When the team arrived they did their walk throughs to check out the field and what not. The officials then came in and asked Wittingham if he had any rules questions. The first thing he had notice was the north endzone goal post was too short. He said normally he cant jump and touch the goal post. Was very interesting that he even thought to look at that and that ISU has a goal post too short.
