    ISU...An awesome university with AMAZING athletic facilities and great people!

    Loved our first visit to Ames. Can't stress enough how first class everything is...from the academic side of things to the athletic facilities and the people who grind it out to make it what it is. It's a little disconcerting to drop your kid off over 1000 miles from home so he can pursue his dreams...but we feel blessed that he chose to do so at ISU. We look forward to many visits over the next 4-5 years (and beyond). It's absolutely apparent that CPR, and staff, have this program headed in the right direction. Special shout out to Nick Uhlenhopp for all his hard work in organizing the details and making the transition so easy for the incoming guys, and their families. Go Cyclones!!!

    It's always great to hear newcomers/new supporters chime in to affirm what we've known for some time. It sounds like you're the parent of a new athlete. Your kid, and you, are in good hands. This continues to be the best school around!


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

    Until further notice, the Big 12 tournament is best. There's an experience here. Not just the teams -- the feel, the vibe, the establishments. Iowa State not only won the pregame -- filling the nearby Power & Light District -- it won the whole damn scene.

    They don't tell you about the forced labor camps till after you drop your kid off.

    Until recently, I had only heard how good things were over in Ames...now I know what you have known for some time. Indeed, we left knowing he was in good hands. Puts a parent at real ease.

    lol! If you can force any labor on this kid, that is non football related, then I'll be really impressed with things over at ISU.

    They got me. I never saw it coming.

    Seriously though, welcome. I'm sure the next four years will go quickly.
