    I stand by my observation that the paragraph was unnecessary and pointless, but feel free to continue obsessing over my comment by doing web searches for relevant articles to back up your point that rushing yards should always be included in any story about football, however peripheral they are to the focus of the story. Knock yourself out.
    The story's about whatever Randy Peterson decides to report on; it's called journalistic discretion. Do you nitpick everything you read and remark on what you view as superfluous information?

    I heard that wasn't in the initial article, but the editor of the Rag (big hawk fan/donor) threw it I'm there before going off to print.

    So Roundball, why don't you just sashay back to the basketball threads if all us football fans are too sensitive for you. Simple enough solution.

    Or, stick around and keep arguing about a sport you don't like, either way...up to you.

    People love arguing about sports they don't like, see any soccer thread

    Has anyone else wondered if "roundball" is Randy Peterson's screen name?

    I thought this thread was about a theft, not football. At least that's what people keep saying.

    I've been informed that the topic here is theft, not football. But since you're acting like some kind of authority figure, maybe you can let me know what the prerequisites are to participate in this discussion?

    I also didn't realize that "not a huge fan" equates to "dislikes". Is there anything more I don't know about myself that you've been able to discern just from reading a few messages?

    Yep, it's me, Randy Peterson. Here I am, criticizing myself multiple times:

We should be thankful we've got a guy that good covering Iowa State and enjoy it while it lasts, because he'll be getting job offers left and right (if he's not already).
