    Rony Nelson a Linebacker?

    Football Newcomer Update: Rony Nelson - Iowa State University Athletics Official Web Site - www.CYCLONES.com - The home of Iowa State Cyclone Sports

    I thought he was our new JUCO DE. The roster has him listed as a DE, but the staff writer for the Athletic Dept. better do a little research too.

    Otherwise, a nice update from another Cyclone immigrated from Haiti.


    Cyclone
    Iowa State became the Cyclones after they leveled Northwestern in 1895. As the Chicago Tribune (9/29/1895) noted:
    'Struck by a Cyclone
    It Comes from Iowa and Devastates Evanston Town'

    You are one step ahead of me on posting this story. Great read. Sounds like a great kid.

    First line of the story:
    Rony Nelson took the long way enroute to earning a scholarship to play linebacker at Iowa State. It is hard to imagine a more circuitous journey.

    I think you need to switch your Avatar. That "N" while appropriately OWNED, appears to be affecting your thought process. "N" isn't for kNowledge you know.

    That's why it called a surprise. If you expect it it wouldn't be a surprise now would it.
