    ummmmm..... NO.

    The stands may be awash in Iowa State colors, but many in the crowd will probably find it hard to root against Stringer. She has retained a large and loyal following among Iowans.
    I don't find it hard to root against any Hawkeye; past, present or future, especially if they are playing AGAINST Iowa State.. geesh..... And I am sure the "Iowans" is a typo.. as the writer meant "UofI fans".

    No kidding. I just think that anyone, (except for those "new believers" who convert utterly and completely to the "one true faith" of Iowa State fandom) who has ever been "slimed" by the disgusting-ness that is the University of Iowegia is to be looked at with anything except for utter contempt and pity.

    But that's just me. I could be wrong...

    outside of the comment on Iowa mentioned above, I didn't have a problem with the article... free, relatively positive pub for ISU in one of the world's largest and well-known newspapers? can't complain about that. Plus Algona and Zwingle get some love as well.


    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.

    And it was VERY positive publicity for ISU!

    Re: NYTimes article on the game tonight

    I liked the knobs that wore Iowa garb to the game because the support coach stringer. Must not have been able to get tickets to the wrestling in St Louis!

    Re: NYTimes article on the game tonight

    What the article really points out to me is what a classy guy Bill Fennelly is. He always has something classy and respectful to say about opposing coaches. It also really shows how dedicated he is to ISU. I have to respect Stringer as a coach, but there's no way I could ever like her.

    Re: NYTimes article on the game tonight

    If anyone remembers the first time we played Rutgers in the NCAA tournament (I think it was the first woman's game I'd ever seen on TV), Rutgers had a player who tried to go Mike Tyson on Jayme Olsen. It was pretty funny. I still wouldn't necessarily equate Rutgers with class.

    I was sitting right under the basket where that happened. That clip was used by the Daily Show for some reason that was unflattering towards women's basketball. The refs let Rutgers play very physical and you knew something was eventually going to happen. Jayme was a very nice person and she was not backing down so that should tell how rough Rutgers played. Rutgers won but Hilton was amazing that night and that whole opening round.

    The best part was Olsen just stared at her in disbelief and then started laughing and walked away.

    I will have to dig my "I heart Vivian" T-shirt out of my closet. I believe it is probably near my "Teetotalers for Zabel" shirt.

    Well, you have to give her some credit. She saw the light and left for someplace better. Much like her men's basketball counterparts Steve Alford, Ralph Miller, George Raveling, and Lute Olson did.
