    Take a look and tell me if you notice the sore thumbs???? Whole lot of Hawks, a lot of key missing Cyclones..... Pretty baffling IMO......

    Re: DMR is at it again....

    Iowa had 60% of the photos compared to our 23. That's about right for a company trying to hold on to a readership that is going down the tubes.


    Clone to the Bone with the up and coming IOWA STATE.

    U of I has more players in the NFL than Iowa State...so what?

    Seriously, I feel like I'm missing a punchline here...

    Re: DMR is at it again....

    I'm pretty sure I remember what "DMR" is and I'm pretty sure I don't even bother clicking or visiting any link to there. It shouldn't be surprising that there is more eastern Iowa coverage. Their research (ha) probably shows little following from ISU fans.

    Me too. This is the reason they still think we are little brother. Get over it. Osemele should have been pictured, other than that? You are trying too hard to make an issue of a non-issue.


    Ill put any dollar that if I get this ball again, Long said, Its going in.

    Osemele is a huge discrepancy IMO, with a few adjustment he will be a multi-year pro-bowler. Sorry for hating the way that local paper operates.

    Greg Castillo is trying to be on an NFL squad? Wasn't he the guy we threw all over last time we played them in Ames?

    So they leave off 1 Cyclone and you think it's a conspiracy.

    That's a YOU issue, not a DMR issue.

    For the record, there were multiple Hawks they left off as well, including the only Hawk drafted last year.
