    ESPN on ISU v. UNI

    I would have thought Ohio State losing to North Carolina would have been bigger news, but the front page of ESPN's Men's College Basketball has a pic of McD. A nice story about UNI's team and the game last night.

    Nice article. Well Written. Except for calling it the Hawkeye State. We all know that isn't true.

    Re: ESPN on ISU v. UNI

    Decent write up, but the writer said that UNI's posts were undersized. Their posts were their strong point. And I known Brooks isn't a big time scorer in college, but he does have a new role this year without Jacobson and he is the career points scoring leader in the history of Iowa High School Basketball so I would say he can fill it up. It bothers me sometimes that reporters don't do their research for schools like ISU.

    Re: ESPN on ISU v. UNI

    Just so everybody knows, the article is written by a guy who covers Mid-Majors specifically, so that's probably why the article is featured as opposed to the UNC-OSU game.

    He wasn't using it in the sense of UIowa sports, he was using it in the sense of the state's official nickname. If this game had been in Texas, he would have used the phrase "The Lone Star State".

    That was a really nice article. He's one of the most talented sportswriters I've read in quite a while. Very good use of language and pathos.

    Thanks for the link!

    I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.
