    DM Rag loves to publish ISU FB record...what about Hawks?

    Notice in this article about season tickets hitting a record for ISU Football with season record highlighted. Where is the Iowa record of 6-7 ever mentioned? Oh maybe I dreamed that, they must have won the Rose Bowl!

    I actually don't think it's a big deal here. It actually kind of makes sense to show last years record, it highlights the excitement around the program with the hiring of Coach Chizik. Who would think that we would brek the season tickets record one year after winning just 1 game in conference? That's all it's saying.

    I think it says a lot about us fans. We're willing to go above and beyond in terms of ticket sales to a coach who has done nothing for us (yet!) and a losing season. we're pumped and ready for more!

    Isn't this the same sort of excitement that occurred when Johnny Orr became the head coach at ISU? Everyone wondered what we were doing with such a high-profile coach, and he ended up solidifying Hilton Magic as we know it. Maybe Chizik will end up creating Jack Magic.

    why in the bleep would they need to mention Iowa's record? WHO CARES! This article is about the energy and enthusiasm building in Cyclone Nation for the new direction the program is headed. Ease off on the DM Rag for once and don't perpetuate the "red headed stepchild" image of ISU fans always complaining about Iowa this and Iowa that!


    I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.

    I believe the original post meant in articles about the hawkeyes, there is little mention of their less-than-spectacular record from last season. agree with what you're saying, though

    I'm not really surprised how short the article was, but atleast it was in there and it was decent.
