    Boy, this newspaper....

    The rag, i usually do not read... but this is....

    Iowa drew a sellout of more than 70,000 Saturday at Kinnick Stadium, but the crowd in Jack Trice was noteworthy because Iowa State went 3-9 in 2007 and was picked to finish sixth this fall in the Big 12 Conference's North Division

    Nice read. Think of how much more money the athletic department would have if we could put another 20,000 in the stadium...

    Glad gas prices didn't keep us away? Why was the that part of the story line? Gas prices cheaper in eastern iowa or do all hawk fans live within 50 feet of the stadium?

    Well, if the jail is fairly close to the stadium, it's probably true that gas prices weren't as much of a factor for their fans, player, etc.


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    Re: Boy, this newspaper....

    the rag is a joke... one funny quote from the article about the hawks vs maine: "Worried about the hawkeye ground game? dont be." lol... they ran for 200+ on a team that the d-line was outweighed by and average of about 50lbs... lets wait before we make the assumption that they are going to have a great ground game

    Re: Boy, this newspaper....

    Why didn't they yap about how the gas prices apparently didn't keep the Squawk fans away?

    Almost as good as when the Rag proclaimed ISU as having a QB Controversy and then stated that Iowa has "options" at QB.

    A couple of things come to mind.

    1. Don't you lose your license with a DUI?
    2. Most of the drunks I've heard of in IC are RUNNING from the cops, not driving away.

    Gas prices in Cedar Rapids are considerabling more expensive than in Des Moines. Ames was more than CR. I never have understood how they can be so different every town you go to.


    42-54 Record in CF Mafia. The most games played and wins by any player in Cyclone Fanatic History. Yes, I'm a nerd.

    Re: Boy, this newspaper....

    Maybe it is just me but I felt that article actually praised the Cyclones. Usually the Rag does try to give backhanded compliments and is obviously in love with the Hawkeyes, but I read this article as "hey, even though they weren't that good last year, they don't play a lot of marque teams, and gas prices are high, Iowa State still packs the house" which is a nice compliment. I actually like this article (unlike most the poopy that the Rag throws out there).

    Re: Boy, this newspaper....

    Maybe this is posted somewhere else and maybe I completely mis-understood Keith last night on soundoff but didn't he completely rip on the reg in his "I think" segment for the article that they wrote on the attorney's that are representing the iowa players in the rape case? Like I said, I may be completely wrong but did anyone else catch that?

    It was actually completely the opposite. He was praising them for their investigation and exposure of the issue.

    Ok, well thanks for clearing that up for me. I was kind of half listening and half messing around on the computer.
