    Re: Knott Article

    Great article but this is one of the most garbled sentences I've read in a while

    Then- and still-Warrior Jake Knott does — and did — before the sun provided any hint of warmth and comfort, buried deep beyond the horizon, yet to dawn, but sure to rise.

    It took me about 10 tries reading that sentence aloud to understand what the author was trying to get across.

    The Gazette has had a lot of that kind of poor writing/poor editing lately.
    They even had two comic sections in a paper last week. Another story had a headline about Coralville 'isn't finding' a kiosk at the CoralRidge Mall: Reading into the article, you discover that the City of Coralville was unable to find the FUNDING to place a kiosk at the mall. Run on sentences are also the norm. Its a disaster of a paper.

    Good story, nice off season football material

    “Jake is a microcosm of everything Coach Rhoads is trying to do,” said ISU running back Jeff Woody
    GOOD
