    When will everyone one realize that money is all that has power?

    We live in a time of college athletics that is all about money. From rankings, to matchups, everything. Politics don't matter, the guy that wins is controlled by the lobbyist or the donors to his election. Nothing matters, just money.

    Greed is the ruler of this country and this world. There is no compassion unless it's followed by a check........

    Yup. What's most ironic is that all I can remember from my crew back in the late 80's is how we could not wait to get out into the "real world". Six months later and Ames was looking pretty good, lol. Take advantage of all the opportunities that ISU/Ames provides, because it will end up being the best time of your life...

    TV money did a lot to contribute to that in sports at college and pro levels. Lobbyists don't lobby the government for nothing. Viscous circle of contributing to politician who votes for their law which gets them more money so that they give more to get the same crook reelected. Still, there are good folks out there that give regardless of the return. You just have to look harder for them because they're not looking for their name on a plaque everywhere they've contributed.
