    This from a newspaper from another state. What a great article. Why can't we get great articles from the instate papers outside of Ames?


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    A really good write up. The Star, as I've said before, has always done an excellent job when it comes to coverage of the Cyclones.

    Thanks for the link ce1.

    We need to talk to them about full ISU coverage. The we just drop the DM Rag. Good article

    It gave me goose bumps to read that article. Thank you so much for posting the link!

    Re: Our reputation as fans...

    Like we need a reminder of how bad the reporters are at the Rag. And this article comes from the heart of Kansas and Missouri territory... I get the feeling they can't hire anybody better at the Rag. It would be nice to think that the newspaper's management isn't this bad.

    What a great article! Exactly what ISU fans have been begging for from our own state.

    Re: Our reputation as fans...

    Blair Kerkhoff is a true sports journalsit. That's the difference between the DM & KC papers. The DM writers always want to write an op-ed sports story - very heavy-handed with their opinions. If you notice, Blair doesn't do that...instead he lets the people he's quoted tell the story for him.

    He does an excellent job of covering the Big XII, and I've enjoyed all his articles even when not ISU related. He doesn't try to sugar-coat any story, and he'll give props where they're due.

    It also doesn't suck that KC is in the heart of Big 8 country! Here in KC the Big 10 existis in a far away land that nobody cares about. It's almost as if the Hawks and their ilk don't exist - I love it!
