    Elwood to University?

    Did anyone see the front page of the daily today? This could be old news, but they are changing Elwood drive to University Boulevard....personally I think its pretty good as long as Elwood (old landscape architect professor) is honored somehow still.

    I think Pete Taylor or Johnny Orr or Gary Thompson Ave would be better.

    Hey, if we all want a CF cause, lets petition the city council to do that!

    Re: Elwood to University?

    If you read the article, the reasons for changing it to University Blvd. sounded pretty good and they are still planning on honoring Elwood in some other way.

    Re: Elwood to University?

    University Ave? Boring name.

    May as well change all the other streets named after people associated with ISU to letters or something like that so visitors don't get confused there either since it's so difficult to find anything in Ames. Anyway, I'm kind of a traditionalist...

    ya def need to get this going


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    I love Elwood Drive, why change it? I played with the idea of naming my boy Elwood. Darn it.

    Yeah, I've always wanted to go with Julo for my kid but I don't think the wife would be down...
