    Nice pic and headline in Rag sports section

    Knott this year! Pretty good and big pic of Jake waiting for the tip to come down for the INT.

    Re: Nice pic and headline in Rag sports section

    I agree! The Register acutally did a decent job this time with their headline and it is a great pic. It more than makes up for the fact that on the front page caption of the players carrying the trophy is says that we won with a "fourth-quarter field goal". That didn't happen in the game I watched.

    the front page said that we won on a field goal kicked by Mike Myers. Derp

    Re: Nice pic and headline in Rag sports section

    They probably had the article written up ahead of time assuming Iowa was going to win on a 4th quarter field goal and forgot to revise it...stupid Rag. I quit reading any of their stuff when they started charging for the website, its just not worth it

    Actually it was even dumber than that. It stated that Iowa State won on a 4th quarter field goal. The last sentence said Mike Myers made a 4th quarter field goal to make the game 9 to 6.

    Re: Nice pic and headline in Rag sports section

    I was watching WHO this morning and they had some highlights and I saw an angle I'd not seen yet on the pick. Wow...had to have jumped 10ft probably. It's plays like this and his Okie State assist on the INT that will really show what CPR said, his ability to make a football play (and after 59 minutes of play). I took a screen shot, but can't get it uploaded.

    Re: Nice pic and headline in Rag sports section

    My favorite headline that I've seen so far from the Register though is: Trophy case continues to gather dust after Big Game loss



    It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.

    Remember, you're unique. Just like everyone else.

    Okay, for us not living in Iowa and not getting the DMR, can someone take a decent picture of that headline, pic, and story and post it?...

    Re: Nice pic and headline in Rag sports section

    Front page was a hot mess Sunday. I really liked the picture in the middle of the sports section though with Steele running in what looked a bit like a Heisman pose and some Iowa defender standing there watching him and looking like a doofus.

    I kind of like their new sports columnist so far. Enjoyed the article they had earlier in the week about Nile Kinnick and Jack Trice. Shocked about the treatment of our players in Missouri in 1952.

    Marshalltown's headline was "Knot a Hawkeye State" :)
