    I just noticed the bottom ticker....

    And became depressed. First moment I have missed ISU sports this offseason.


    ďUrgency,Ē Rhoads said. ďThatís exactly what I told our staff. Itís exactly what I told our players. Urgency in getting your job done. Thatís in a 100 percent rate of speed at executing your responsibility ó whether itís a fit, whether itís a tackle, whether itís a route, whether itís a cut-off block. Everybody needs a little bit more urgency in coaching and playing.Ē

    It's awful. I love the NHL playoffs, but after that there is nothing.

    If ISU had baseball you would still have ISU sports to watch (assuming you aren't interested in softball).

    Also, the bottom ticker is really annoying on small screens. I hate how much room it takes up on my netbook with a 10" screen. CF should really have an adaptive layout and make that ticker go away for screens smaller than 15".

    i want the bottom ticker to count down the days until football season is over (for isu). wa wa waaa.

    seriously though, it is going to be tough to stomach watching 80 teams play in bowl games and have isu not be one of them. i just don't see it happening with our entire defensive line leaving or being kicked off the team. brutal. just brutal.

    considering our offensive woes as of late i'll give wally a pass on this season considering. hopefully mangino can get us serviceable on offense. ttech, osu and others have thrived with zero defense in any given season. perhaps we can do the same.

    If people cared about baseball they wouldnt feel like they had nothing to watch.

    NBA finals will have some of my attention. Other than that though, there is nothing.

    Re: I just noticed the bottom ticker....

    Listen, I love summer. I love spring field work, I love fishing, boating, road tripping, bonfires, golfing, going to baseball games, baseball in general, and everything spring and summer offer. But, my one true love is tailgating and football season. I love it so damn much. I miss it, I miss it a lot.
