    If the festival formerly known as VEISHEA ever has a chance of coming back in any form whatsoever in the future, it would be killed forever by another riot next year.

    I hope you are right, but Homecoming has become so self-contained in the Greek system as it is now that it would take a ton of work and more than a few years to bring non-Greeks into the fold.

    “You feel the floor give you a little tingle, man,” Iowa State junior point guard Monte Morris said in a private moment after the game, leaning against a wall in the bowels of Hilton Coliseum. “You feel it. You feel it. It’s real. You feel it on the court. It’s a tough feeling to explain. It’s a vibration. It gets you going.”

    He paused.

    “It’s magic.”

    not at all. I have enjoyed lots of VEISHEA's. It's just not worth it anymore, though.

    Did Cyclone Alley apologize for the cancellation of Veishea yet?

    Re: RIP, Veishea

    Unfortunately rioting became the biggest tradition associated with VEISHEA.

    I love partying it up and getting a little silly with my booze, but arbitrarily destroying property is stupid. I say good riddance.




    Thank you to Kagavi & amestoplease for the sweet designs!

    Re: RIP, Veishea

    Why criticize Tom Hill and Dr. Leath? Criticize the idiots who ruined VIESHEA by committing riot and vandalism. Stop enabling excuses of "I was just there and witnessing the scene", "I merely passed by", "it was normal for kids to get drunk".

    Re: RIP, Veishea

    I know that the kids getting blamed are the ones responsible for this year's riots, but weren't there riots in the 80s and 90s? It seems like a lot of people need to be blamed.

    I also hate the fact that they are calling it Veishea now instead of VEISHEA

    I am going to laugh when a riot happens next year.
