    2010 Calendar

    Just getting around to squaring away some Christmas gifts. My BIL got me a 2010 ISU Football calendar that I just opened today.

    January 2010 - Picture of #6, Jason Scales. At first, I am like, wth? Jason Scales graduated, why is he on a 2010 calendar?

    Then I flip through the rest of the months. There are nice pictures of....Michael Bibbs, RJ Sumrall, Nick Slobidsky, Kurtis Taylor, Brandon Johnson, and Brandon Hunley. Wow, way to capture the star power of ISU football. Is there some NCAA rule that current players cannot be used?

    And, the twelve months only have these 7 guys, there are two different pictures of several of them.

    Anyway, not a big deal, but I got a laugh out of it. What a weak effort. Can't wait until March 2010 so I can get fired up over Nick Slobidsky.

    Yes, the NCAA prohibits using currently eligible athletes in products like this. That's why, for example, you don't see names of current players used in NCAA video games.

    As for why some better known former players aren't used, I'm not sure. It might have something to do with not being able to get permission from the players?
