    Close encounter at Taco Bell

    I went to Taco Bell for lunch today (yeah, I know, how sad is that...)

    I have my ISU polo on today. The manager running the register asked if I went to ISU. I said yes, and she said that her family was from Story City.

    So, after I was done eating, I went to refill my drink for the afternoon, and one of the kids working behind the counter asked me if I was a coach at ISU. I said no, but that I went to school there. He told me that he was recruited by ISU for football. I asked him where he ended up choosing to go, and he said he chose LSU, but that his grades didn't work out at LSU, so he's back here going to JC and working on his grades. His name was Deaven, but I didn't get his last name.

    Anyway, I told him to hang in there, and he said that he's workin' his way back and plans to be playing somewhere soon...

    Rather odd to meet two people with ties to ISU/Iowa, in Texas, and both at the same place...

    Re: Close encounter at Taco Bell

    Yeah, a lot of times when I meet new people down here and tell them where I'm from, I get a lot of blank expressions followed by a polite "Yes, I know that place...". Even living in a Big 12 city.

    name was Deaven
    His story sounds very Hawkeyish to me. Goes to Iowa, ends up at Taco Bell.
