    CR Gazette- front page of sports section 1/17

    check out the great coverage of ISU's victory over Mizzou last night... (yes there was an article on p. 2, but cripes people, an article about the BTN topping the page?)


    I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.

    Just proof that papers would rather report on controversy and negative things rather than positive.

    If we had lost it would have made the front page. In this case, I'll take page 2 over page one any day.

    Not surprising. It is 30 minutes from Iowa City in the Hawkeye stronghold of eastern iowa.

    You wouldn't expect to see an article about ISU in the IC Press-Citizen any more than you should expect to see ISU on the front page of the Gazette.

    If ISU keeps it up, they'll have to report on Cyclone basketball because Iowa will be too boring, like it already is, to even care about over there as it is to me. Who gives a CRAP about Iowa. I pay attention to Iowa when they lose. Enough said.

    I'm with Keep - What part of this is supposed to be a suprise?

    I'd have been shocked if they had put our win on the front page...

    In other news...water is wet!

    Seriously though, does this come as any shock? That paper is basically a Hawk paper.

    Honestly if anybody should be ****** it's Drake, they're the only relevant team in the state and they can't get any love.

    Re: CR Gazette- front page of sports section 1/17

    What gets me is that Des Moines is 30 miles from Ames and we don't receive bias coverage from The Register like The CR Gazette gives the Hawks. Every time I hear a Hawk fan complain about Register coverage, I say move to Eastern Iowa...this is Cyclone Country!

    no doubt. you'd think being 16-1, 6-0 would get you a little more than a small column on the 2nd page.

    Re: CR Gazette- front page of sports section 1/17

    I mean it all comes down to what sells, and nobody gives a crap about ISU in CR. Frankly nobody really gives a crap about Drake anywhere, so that's why they are relegated to the second page.
