    This DM REG. HEADLINE IS A JOKE...

    ISUís in-state troubles made worse by Iowa

    This headline from the Des Moines is a complete joke. I think the Cyclones are overachieving for the talent they have. Let's get real here. GMac had:
    -no recruitiing time
    -patched together team
    -could not recruit for his system
    -virtually no one coming back from last year
    I don't know what people expect, but AT LEAST WE ARE COMPETITIVE.
    The Register knows the story, and are trying to "build up" the sorry Hawks at our expense. I like where we are headed. Let's keep our heads up and be positive. We have a winner here. Remember, UNI is winning with GMacs players and system.

    Re: This DM REG. HEADLINE IS A JOKE...

    I agree with letsgostate on this. The quickest way to get a winner is to bottom out and be able to offer top recruits four years of playing time and a chance to start immediately. Why do you think GMac didn't try harder to keep Morgan's players. He knows the gig. If you are just above average, you can end up there forever. Next year is the start of something special for ISU hoops. Watch a team of freshmen start and come together for great things.

    Re: This DM REG. HEADLINE IS A JOKE...

    After the game, I said to myself, "self, the headline is not going to be nice to the Clones after they didn't get the Chizik scoop".

    This morning, I said to myself, "self, you were right again".


    Pathetic, slanted to the east journalism.

    It will take them a long time to get over the Chizick break. The Rag gets a chip on their shoulder and they never let it go. But if we have to rely on the RAG to give us feel-good points, we are a sorry group. Screw them. The paper squaks rely upon is true to form.

    Yeah, they've been lying in wait to hit ISU hard with a headline like this.

    Re: This DM REG. HEADLINE IS A JOKE...

    I do not understand why ISU fans get upset by what the HAWKEYE paper
    prints. They never have been ISU fans and they never will be. The only
    way to get their attention at the paper is do not buy it, and do not put
    any ads in the DSM REG!!!!!!
    15 years ago the Reg printed a full page ad for PETA. The livestock
    ads disappeared right now. In a few WEEKS and $1,000,000 of lost income
    the REG was on their knees asking the livestock people to put their ads
    back in the paper. 10-20 people were let go because they had nothing to
    do and because they had a really stupid idea.
    I understand that it is the only paper in town , BUT IF you have to read it throw away the sports before you read anything.

    GO CYCLONES !!!!!!

    Re: This DM REG. HEADLINE IS A JOKE...

    Exactly, what is so bad about that headline? ISU lost to all of the in-state schools. We need to deal with it and move on. Actually, that headline seems rather tame compared to others I have seen from the Rag over the years.

    ISU does not have a good team this year, so we all might as well get used to "uncomplimentary" headlines, because there are more losses to come.

    Re: This DM REG. HEADLINE IS A JOKE...

    When you lose a game, expect a crummy headline or bad photo (good for the winner, though). Before ripping on the DMR for being Iowa lovers, I cast my mind back to Wednesday morning. The nearly half page photo was of Haluska looking as if he just watched his dog run into the path of a truck. There's a thread complimenting the Register for it somewhere around here. How soon we forget....

    Most of you guys know this but for the few idiots out

    there please STOP buying their freaking paper...This isn't that tough. All the news you want is free online at lots of places. Get the ames trib or the waterloo courier if you must. And don't stop there. Tell all your cyclone friends why they shouldn't buy this trash either. Believe me, there are enough cyclone fans in this state that if none of them bought or read the rag things would change in a hurry.

    Re: This DM REG. HEADLINE IS A JOKE...

    Our team is not that good I understand.

    One thing that kind of bugged me though was how their photo essay treated ISU like any other out of state team. All the photos were of ISU guys getting schooled, etc. Just my two cents here.

    We'll get them next year.

    Those are the pictures in my mind's eye as well!

    I can't recall any "kodak moments" for the ISU side; maybe some of the nice blocked shots in the first half? What else could they have put in the photo montage? A Wesley Johnson put-back of a Mike Taylor air ball?

    Better days are surely to come of this mess...

    Re: This DM REG. HEADLINE IS A JOKE...

    I haven't even read my paper yet (shows how much I care about the Rag) but the headline didn't bother me too much.

    Maybe because they are assuming we have "troubles". Troubles is what we had last year when we underachieved. I thought we could get one of the instate games but it wasn't to be. We'll struggle to get to 15 wins but I'm alright with that.

    I couldn't agree more. We have a very young team with not a whole lot of talent. We need to learn to take a few punches for the next couple years.
