    Re: RIP, Veishea

    Well I hope Tom Hill and Leath are ******* happy. They did nothing to try and save it. The task force was set up to make this decision.


    My teams: (as of 6/15/14)
    Cleveland Browns: 4-12 - .250
    Cleveland Indians: 34-35 - .493
    Cleveland Cavs: 33-49 - .402
    Iowa State Cyclones (FB): 3-9 - .250
    Iowa State Cyclones (BB): 28-8 - .778

    Re: RIP, Veishea

    Why not just have a new celebration and spread it out more and not have the name.....seems like a no brainer.


    Still comes off as a horrible knee jerk reaction.

    I love it how the tasks force says "we will try to make 2 to 3 smaller events"........... I know it stinks but man VEISHEA was getting real rowdy!

    Re: RIP, Veishea

    Like I have said before, I am just fine with this move as long as we step up our Homecoming festivities.

    The excuse for having a poor homecoming was always that we had VEISHEA and we ended up doing a very average job at both celebrations.

    Let's make HC awesome now.

    Re: RIP, Veishea

    So you're saying the chive.com is wrong?!?!


    "Iowa State Univserity has some craziness as well. It is mostly known for their yearly festival called Veishea. It has basically grown to the point where students take a week off from class do nothing but drink all day long."

    I'm sure there were people on the deck of the Titanic screaming about why the crew wasn't trying to fix the hole in the hull.

    Sometimes things aren't able to be saved. Sometimes they're not worth being saved.

    This is an official university Twitter feed? I realize it's Twitter, but holy bad grammar, Batman.

    If people are outraged by this, you'll see protesting and petitioning...otherwise, it is what it is.


    Really sucks as a father of a kid who LOVES parades.
