    Some love from Pete Fiutak of the CFN

    ISU is mentioned as one of the Breakthrough Programs on the College Football News site today:

    ... the usual "tough being Iowa State" with their "plucky defense". But hey, its a mention!

    They act like Iowa State has always been number 2 in this state and that is not true .I Believe Rhoads can change that again.

    Re: Some love from Pete Fiutak of the CFN

    There is some good company there on that page. The no. 2 comment is bs. Is he talking t-shirt sales of in recruiting, or wins. That was not a well thought out comment at all. But overall, pretty cool. He forgot the Texas win in Austin as well....

    Re: Some love from Pete Fiutak of the CFN

    Nice...for some reason I see Oklahoma being "that team" we knock off this year. Gotta love it.

    Also, not sure why so many of you care about the #2 comment. We have been #2 in this state for three decades now....doubt that changes. Youve had 30 years of the average fan jumping on the Hawk Bandwagon. Doesn't mean we can't still be very successful.

    The sooner many admit that we are indeed the number 2 team in the state, the better. While many don't like it, that's the way it is. **** and moan all you want, but Iowa has, does, and most likely always will dominate the state fan base. The Eastern Iowa population and Chicago influence at Iowa will always fuel their media coverage, while we will always play second fiddle to that.

    Maybe if CPR can get us to multiple BCS games, we have a chance, but heck, Ferentz has already accomplished that.

    Rag on that website all you want but in their Big XII predictions they place ISU 6th - higher than any other website. Above BU, KSU, TT & KU. And they placed WV finishing 4th and TCU 5th - right about where they should be as far as I'm concerned.

    Heck I would be happy if the farmers in this state would all get behind ISU - drives me nuts to see so many fall for Hayden's ANF marketing ploy.

    It really is the constant battle between good and evil in this state. You have ISU... the shining light of freedom, justice, and all that is right in the world. Then you have Iowa... the darkside, the 7th level of hell which stands for all criminal things and opression on all who fall into the darkness.

    That's correct. Only Iowa has had 20 consecutive pathetic seasons where they didn't have winning record. And we're not talking that long ago.


    Clone to the Bone with the up and coming IOWA STATE.
