    Kurt Warner went to Iowa State????

    I never knew Kurt Warner went to Iowa State. When will national people learn to get the school right?
    Link: http://www.si.com/nfl/2014/08/01/pro...wn-kurt-warner

    Excerpt for those that do not want to read the article: It's been almost a decade since the last quarterback was inducted into the Hall of Fame, when Troy Aikman and Warren Moon became part of football legend in 2006. Warner's candidacy isn't as much of a lead-pipe lock as Brett Favre's will be in 2016, but I think there's more than enough to push him into the discussion in a serious way. A four-time Pro Bowler and two-time First-Team All-Pro, Warner's career arc is one of the most unique in NFL history. Most people know the story of the undrafted player from Iowa State who once stocked shelves at a grocery store during the night shift and had to go through arena football and NFL Europe before the Rams took a flyer on him in 1998, but it was the way he recovered from five mediocre-to-horrible seasons in the middle of his career to match what he did early on with the Rams in St. Louis that makes his story truly remarkable.

    Duh... he sacked groceries at Fareway before starting for the Iowa State Hawkeyes.

    At this point I'm just happy when they get the state right.

    Didn't he beat us as a senior for the Purples Kitties at the Jack?
