    Because of this? This has been going on since, well, college sports began.

    Why are you so concerned with how ISU disciplines its' students?

    Nevermind, you're just a hok troll.

    No, I'm actually a Hawk fan who cheers for the Cyclones as well. It is possible you know. You don't have to hate one to like the other or vice versa.

    Regarding Irving's discipline, it's a matter of principle and ethics. He shouldn't be treated differently than anyone else participating in the rioting, and clearly he was participating more so than most.

    Your a troll - glad you admitted to be a Hawk Fan go to the rivalry page to post. At least ISU actually kicked their problem makers of the team - Freerentz doesn't have the stones for that.

    Re: Irvings major

    For all you smarty pants out there that don't know what a Liberal Studies major is maybe you should look it up before you make fun of it. I received a Bachelor's of Liberal Studies at Iowa State. Basically, it is a degree only upper classmen can declare for. Many take the major because they spent 3 years in another major and decide it's not for them. The easiest way to graduate and not spend another 3 years in school is to go the "easy" route. I majore in Elementary Education for 3 years and by the time I hit my practicum, I realized I did not want to teach any more. Rather than start a new major and another 3 years in college I got a Liberal Studies degree. Unless you are some enigineer or pre law or doctor student, the degree is just as good as an English, History or Psychology degree.

    Re: Irvings major

    I think the definition of this major is pretty liberal.

    Re: Irvings major

    Here is my question, if I go try to enroll as a pre-liberal studies major as a non-athlete, do they actually let me do it, or do they laugh me out of the room?

    Had a chance to meet Clayton when I was down at the Houston Bowl a few years ago. Nothing like having first Cyclone in space on the ole resume.

    Re: Irvings major

    I've only had one athlete who wasn't an exceptional student, and that one was right up until the end of their season.

    I'm sure there's plenty of exceptions, but they do actually tend to do the work.

    That's not exactly setting the bar real high.


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.
