    iowa state panic mode

    At least two big 12 realignment panic periods, CPR leaving, coach johnson-lynch leaving, coach sanderson leaving, hoiberg leaving. My count were batting 5 for 6. Not bad. Is there another college program with a larger sample size in the past few years? I would guess not. I suppose we should learn to take things with a grain of salt. It usually works out in the end.

    Remember when there was panic surrounded the seasons the FB team had both OU and Texas on the schedule? Now all we seem to worry about is keeping our coaches.

    Agree, although I will say, with the history we've had. I don't blame people for freaking out. Congrats CFH!

    ESPN's wrestling ratings increased to 0.8 this year.

    The Syracuse-Louisville basketball game on a Saturday afternoon in January had twice as many viewers, on the same channel. That's the easiest point of reference that I could find.

    Just sayin'...

    Don't post then. I don't care about your opinion. Wrestling is a huge part of the identity of ISU. If you don't realize that or at least even admit it, then I question how much of a fan you really are.

    Re: iowa state panic mode

    Compared to the majority of longtime ISU fans and CF'ers, I'm not as in-tune w/ negatives of past athletic director.

    I'm curious how many of you think that a pre-Pollard AD would've somehow botched this situation. (or at what percentage).
