    because it is ESPN and it is all about ratings / page views. ISU isn't important enough.

    But Indiana is? I'm pretty sure our football team gets more fan support than IU of their football team.

    It's because it's a Big 10 article. Notice the only schools mentioned are Big 10 schools.


    Cyclone
    Iowa State became the Cyclones after they leveled Northwestern in 1895. As the Chicago Tribune (9/29/1895) noted:
    'Struck by a Cyclone
    It Comes from Iowa and Devastates Evanston Town'

    Except for all the quotes from Kentucky professors and the Georgia AD? Or the assortment of schools listed in the sidebar from all sorts of different conferences? It was kind of a big picture article. You can't really expect them to mention every athletics construction project in the country, unless it's meant to be some sort of definitive chart.

    ESPN doesn't care about ISU, their own Big XII blogger had an article ranking the Big XII's football facilities and he originally said that ISU was renovating Jacobson.

    Some how we ranked 9th!!!!!!!

    who would you put us above? the three schools directly above us all are either finishing up or are starting some pretty drastic upgrades to their stadiums that will make them very nice

    obviously there are more to facilities than stadiums but im sure it got by far the most weight

    it says the new facility is to replace to the jacobson building...it doesnt say they are renovating it so they are technically correct

    The article also mentions there is no great difference between 4 thru 10. IMO, after we get done with the new Football Complex. Then we concentrate on Bowling in the South End. Expand the Press Box and Suites. And we have a pretty nice setup.

    We are improving one step at a time. With facilities and also with the team we put on the field.

    It said "renovating" until enough people apparently told him he was wrong.

    "The team is getting a new football facility as well, replacing the Jacobson Building."

    The sentence structure is still poor. Now it reads like the Jacobson Building is going away.

    Texas Tech doesn't even have an indoor practice facility (unless you count the shed they used for Craig Jame's son) yet some how they are #4?

    The original article did state that we were renovating Jacobson (which is technically true since wrestling is moving in there) which just shows how much DU cares about ISU. Very lazy journalism.
