    Iowa State Facilities - Denver Post Article

    "Get facilities off the table (as an issue)," said Brian Reilly, moderator of Allbuffs.com, and a Colorado alum. "Recruits visit Boise State, and they're better than Colorado. TCU had better facilities even before joining the Big 12. People should go online to Iowa State's athletic website and look at their facilities.
    "They blow CU's away."

    Colorado has joined a conference where college sports is second fiddle. Happens.

    I like how nobody can believe we have better facilities than they do. No way ISU could have good facilities, right?

    Re: Iowa State Facilities - Denver Post Article

    They've won a national championship in the past 25 years and now they struggle to beat (or lose to) Colorado State. Its a shame. And I'm one who hated CU when they would bring their game to Ames. Remember a football game sometime in the early 90's I think, when one of their players wrote "thanks" on a big dry erase board on their sideline towards the end of the game. They were stirring things up pretty well with the crowd behind their bench. Was easy to dislike them. Now wish we had them back on the schedule.

    For about 9 of the 12 it is.

    9 of 10 in the Big 12 take it very seriously.

    Re: Iowa State Facilities - Denver Post Article

    On one hand, I'm flattered that we have facilities that other schools look up to, and I'm happy that we have better facilities (well, per recruits like Lazard) than traditional powerhouses like Notre Dame.

    On the other hand, it pisses me off that everyone says that we have good facilities with a bit of incredulity-- as though we aren't deserving of it, and it's an insult to their program that they do not have better facilities than we do.

That amazes me, how they can tell me what's wrong with my team. And I must really be dumb, because I'm there every day and goddamn I have a hard time figuring it out sometimes."-Johnny Orr

    You understand it though, don't you? We have no history. Embrace the fact that we are creating some (hopefully).

    Yeah, I understand it, and I'm glad we're laying the foundation to succeed. It doesn't completely remove the sting of the backhanded compliments, though.
