    DM Rag at it again...

    On the front page of the dm register online for a link to an article about the cyclone road game "Caution Road Game Ahead. " They just overlaid the new logo (I-State) over the old logo (whirly bird) but you can still see the old logo behind it. Lazzzzzzy.

    It does look a little tacky, I wonder if they were trying to show that we haven't won a road game with the new logo, etc.

    I didn't realize it was 12 games. Not good.

    The DMR has such good writers and editors...earlier today they had the title:

    Road-wearing ISU hopes to shake slump

    Looks like they changed it because someone mentioned it in the comment section.

    IMO this was done on purpose to demonstrate the length of the losing streak.

    Agreed, looks very intentional to me.

    I'm pretty sure that was the whole point, the road losing streak has continued even with the new logo... I think the Rag could put a graphic of Cy beating Herky to a bloody pulp and someone here would find something wrong with the graphic or article just because it's the Rag. It's not the greatest paper in the world but it's a friggin' graphic people! The first thing when I saw it I assumed it was meant to symbolize our on going road woes regardless how we are identified. I highly doubt they've ever used that graphic before and were just being "lazy"
