    Re: DM Register: ISU women cut down to size

    The same days headlines.
    ISU women make the finals of the tourney and are projected a six seed in the NCAA tourney we get "cut down"
    Iowa men get beat in the quarterfinals, and are 50/50 if they make the NIT. And Wonderboy is the "miracle worker"
    I will leave it at that since this has been covered over and over here.


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

    Yeah the "Cut down to size" headline was more appropriate for a Oklahoma newpaper rather than Iowa's own DSM Register. Also, Keeler's article on Alford this morning makes me wonder if he is Alford's agent.

    What a bad headline, they played there hearts out last night with a really good OU team and all the Register can come up with is Cut down to size. Good god.

    I like this statement.
    "The Cyclones were like overzealous shaperones. Most of the night anytime OU raised the energy level, Iowa State butted in"
    We would never read this out of the Register.

    That, once again, was a EIU graduate in the newsroom having fun at our expense. The Rag is becoming toilet paper.

    The guy that writes WBB for that paper is phenomenal. He's written good stuff all week. It's, as if, he actually watched the games. Sports writing, in general, and I think you can thank ESPN for this since they're also credited so much for changing modern sports writing, is all too much about showering the winner and moving on....

    I've been using it in the bathroom for 2 years now. Am I just a trend-setter?

    Re: DM Register: ISU women cut down to size

    I just looked at dm register online, they changed the headline to, "Oklahoma ends ISU impressive Big 12 run." Do you think they had some hate mail or something. I love the anti-Cyclones portion of the state.

    Re: DM Register: ISU women cut down to size

    I don't even visit the Rag website let alone buy the thing. That could contribute to higher web traffic and therefore an increase in advertising revenue. I have used it in the can before, but it is even too abrasive there....

    My rabbit died last weekend, and now I'm left wondering if it's still worth the Sunday subscription. A couple of the thick sections used to fit the bottom of his cage perfectly.

    Good thing we didn't win. "OU robbed as Cyclones cheat way to victory; bribery allegations en route to Big XII office"
