    Yet Another Football Preview article....Denver Post

    The DP is doing a big12 team each day, today was ISU, nice to pop open the local paper and see a color picture with the ISU helmet front and center... interesting tidbits about a huge game Rhoads was a part of a couple years ago while at Pitt (something I was unaware of anyway).

    I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.

    Actually one of the best, most well-researched, well-rounded articles I have seen. The author takes no shots at Iowa State, and actually seems to show respect for what Rhoads and co. are trying to achieve.

    "The first offensive meeting I had (at Iowa State), we asked them, 'How many of you got a scholarship offer from Oklahoma?' " Herman said. "Nobody raised their hand. 'How many from Texas?' Nobody raised their hand. 'How many from Oklahoma State?' Nobody raised their hand.
    They probably very carefully avoided asking "A&M"...

    "I can't begin to thank my lucky stars that we inherited the players we did offensively," Herman said.
    I liked this.

    I agree c&g, after reading it, I thought something was wrong, perhaps my vision was failing me for not finding paragraphs of jabs at the ISU program, Ames, and Iowa in general.

    Best article I've read yet from an out-of-state reporter. Loved the fact about Schmidgall.

    I like the "did you know" fact about Derec Schmidgall because I definitly did not know that he is the only linebacker in the country that is also the holder on kicks.

    great article. Sad to say, but for an overview article, it really puts the Reg in its place. I wish I could find a story with half as much information as this one in the Gazette too.

    GREAT ARTICLE. Great research and absolutely no shots to Rhoads at all. The best non iowan preview article ive read so far this year. A+ for the author.

    Probably the best positive pre-season article I've read. I did not want to stab my eye with a fork after reading it

    Re: Yet Another Football Preview article....Denver Post

    yeah, but the author carefully side-stepped our defense. "Remember that Pitt-WVU game? That was awesome... okay- Iowa State's offense may be improved this year..."




    Thank you to Kagavi & amestoplease for the sweet designs!

    Love that attitude!
