    Re: Get a grip KU

    I've seen a few similar articles posted. They aren't to be taken literally. The writers are using KU's problems getting footing for the field as a metaphor for KU generally not being prepared and being unable to succeed throughout the season.

    Re: Get a grip KU

    "Get a grip KU", I hope and pray that was a pun. Nice work.


    "I think that people are responding to someone standing up and saying this is what we want to do and let's not be afraid to go for it,'' Pollard said. "I think Iowa State has a very conservative, modest background. We never pound our chest and say `Let's do it.' It's OK to set a goal. You can't do it if you don't say what you want to do. You should be proud of it.''

    Re: Get a grip KU

    This writer should tell ISU how to make a football field with freezing temperatures playable as if it was 70 degrees. He'd be rich and wouldn't have to write terrible articles anymore.


    ďI told you, I donít care if youíre black or white. I donít care if youíre rich or poor. I donít care where you come from, whether itís Texas, Florida, California, or right here in the state of Iowa, I donít care about any of thatÖ But what I did care about is moving forward from that day on, that we were one team." -Paul Rhoads

    KU just needs to face the fact that they suck ***, we have beaten them by a combined 85-23 the last 2 years.

    Build a better football team. Sometimes, this fixes more problems than just the field condition.

    Re: Get a grip KU

    When a guy starts his column with a fourth degree transitive connection to come up with a predictive score he has lost all credibility.

    Hey dude, if you want to play the transitive score game, how about this one? Texas beat you 35-13. Texas needed a blown call in the waning seconds to beat ISU by a single point.

    But if there wasnt a track around the field what else would the fans watch at football games?

    You have to answer the question to actually see the column.

    Re: Get a grip KU

    Like every homer sports writer he is trying to give the fan base something to hang on to, other than the fact they got beat by a better team.

    Charlie Wiese spent time at New England. If he does not understand winter field conditions shame on him.

    Would help if you had a quarterback that could throw a pass.

    KU "woe is me" and KU superiority go in such insane cycles that my head spins day-to-day.
