    Okie State fan peeved at ISU press

    On the last page of Mandel's article here, he answers a question from a unhappy OSU fan about ISU's stadium upgrades press. Cool people are envious of us.

    Iowa State became the Cyclones after they leveled Northwestern in 1895. As the Chicago Tribune (9/29/1895) noted:
    'Struck by a Cyclone
    It Comes from Iowa and Devastates Evanston Town'

    Re: Okie State fan peeved at ISU press

    You guys ran a story on how Iowa State is fixing up their stadium, but Boone Pickens Stadium is looking great and is 1,000 times better looking than it used to be. Why isn't there a story about BPS? Why is it that the national media continues to ignore Oklahoma State even though they have had one of the most prolific offenses over the last two years?

    Because they go 6-6 every year. But I'm sure the stadium is lovely.
    that answer doesn't make sense..... ISU does worse than that most years... way worse.

    No, it doesn't make sense but it was still rather funny


    It's only funny though because it's someone else for once


    Oh we will fight, fight, fight for Iowa State,
    and may her colors ever fly!!!

    Yeah, but everybody gets a little press throughout the year. Oklahoma State simply chose to use their's up when they let everyone know that their coach is, in fact, a man.

    Personally, I'm glad ISU chose the stadium upgrades

    I really like reading Mandel's mailbag. He has a way to put guys like that back in their place.

    There are probably a lot more people involved with paying for our stadium and we must work a lot harder to get what we need.

    Get some more players arrested or have your coach go off! Then we will write a nice article for you. I predict OSU on probation in 4 years!

    The idiot probably didn't notice how much press OSU got when T. Boone Pickens gave the wad of cash to the school.

    Re: Okie State fan peeved at ISU press

    Because their coach is a MAN and they don't need anymore press.

    To the OSU fan: Hey d!%^bag, anybody can build a pretty stadium when a rich man drops $150,000,000 in your lap.

    Yep. If they committed to a $60 million stadium renovation while having $35.64 in their checking account like we're doing, they'd get in the news too.

    Yes, but we aren't complaining that the National Media doesn't pay enough attention to us (the reason for his smackdown). We know why.

    Hopefully Chizik & Co. will create reasons other than a proposed stadium upgrade for us to get some coverage.

    And isn't Mandel in love with one of Iowa State's cheerleaders? I seemed to have read that in one of his columns during the basketball season....
