    Ames Tribune has a CCL website

    I am not intelligent enough to grade her on the grammar, but Courtney Linehan is a huge step up from their last sports editor. She is like a one person ISU press corps. Not long before she moves on. Here is a link to the Ames Tribune CCL:

    Pretty good writer...I enjoy several of her things but is one of the most annoying people to deal with. Pretty rude person overall, but I will say she has done a pretty good job covering Iowa State since coming here from Illinois.

    Wow. I don't think I would call her rude. I believe she posts here, and seems like a decent person.

    Maybe you are ugly? I don't know, I don't like working with ugly people and I would give you a hard time.

    I think I have PM'd with her in the past, and she was very pleasant about things. Maybe she was just having a bad day. From what I have read, her coverage seems great. Seems to be a fan of ISU, at least for the moment, but she doesn't let that color her commentary too much. I think she is doing a solid job, especially for her age and experience.

    Now if you want to go after certain kf apologists I will join in that stoning in a heartbeat. I don't think she would sweep a story about a female athlete being abused and ridiculed by other athletes under the rug. In fact, I think she would dig to the bottom of it and get the truth out, no matter if it made the accuser look bad or the athletic department. And yes, I believe she would do it even if it cost her access or possibly hinder future employment opportunities. I think she has what some people would call character, that thing many Hawk-loving media types abandon when they strap on the black and gold polyester.
