    I wonder if he is having regrets about choosing Creighton over ISU. We are doing a little bit better than 5-6.

    No joke. We win by 30 points and all some posters talk about is how we'd lose to Ames High if we played like that against them...

    All things considered, it IS a pretty strong Ames High team being compared with one guy who would start for us this year and another one, maybe two who would probably see the floor.


    But I suppose those making that claim are not doing so based on the merits of the Ames team.

    Re: Effects of the Internet World on Sports

    This is exactly why many pro teams and leagues have taken steps to limit what players are doing on the various social networking sites out there.

    I'm sure many colleges are also limiting their players' posting on such sites as well.

    I think you will continue to see both pro teams/leagues as well as colleges put restrictions on their players regarding these sort of electronic forums.



    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.
