    CNNSI Mentions ISU

    Only not in a way we'd like. See the second page, about halfway down under Bill's comments.

    Re: CNNSI Mentions ISU

    Have we been getting covered in a "way we like" anytime recently??


    I don't drink the Kool-Aid, and I am done making excuses. Only keeping it real...

    Boy that one stings. Hey Bill, you still have a little ways to go before Evil Empire 2.0 is outspending the Yankees, but you keep your head up

    Awesome when some guy who doesn't even know anything about college football slams us. Stringing a few good seasons can erase a lot of that stigma.

    I just hope we don't send 10 teams to bowl games again this year......

    Joe P's a good guy. Writes for KC Star and is pretty good. His comment was kind of funny.

    Oh well, guess it would be worse if no one was talking about you at all.

    Ouch - to get rung up in a baseball article.....

    But I disagree - "competition" doesn't have near as much to do with the expansion of seasons as does "money-hoarding".

    Re: CNNSI Mentions ISU

    Why is this considered an insult? Honestly, we were 2-10. The 2 teams we beat didn't go to bowl games.

    I would guess that whoever we beat this year won't go bowling either (EIU exempted). We aren't knocking off Top Ten teams.

    Iowa loses to ISU quite a bit, but they still go to bowl games.

    This is not true. If it worked this way we would go to a bowl game every year and we know that's not the case.
