    Re: now what??

    I'm always up to talk football but lately it seems all this board does is rag on the bball team and complain more and more about it.

    I'm sure I'll be checking in every day watching for players not making grades/ getting in trouble. When Hawkeyes spend the night in jail it ends up on this board almost immediately as well. Those are usually the stories of the off season...

    As the recruits start piling up soon, I'll be checking the board often.

    Re: now what??

    Is it a coincidence that this board has become more negative since the ownership change? Did Jeremy control the flow a little better with his input and leadership? I honestly hate having to sift through all the negative posts and have found myself spending more time on other boards lately. I started a post yesterday about positive things at the spring game and some subtle changes that I thought would improve the atmosphere and it ended up being a "Fire Pollard" thread. I know "Fanatic" is a term that is supposed to mean extreme and uncritical enthusiasm. Where did all these Debbie Downers come from and why have they taken over our board?

    Re: now what??

    I'll be here checking on football news and some of the off topic stuff. Getting sick of the crybaby ***** fest that's now become the MBB part of the site. If that's all that is on the front page, I won't spend much time here. The same ******** only in a new thread every two hours is getting old.

    You can blame me if you want but I have a feeling that the basketball season is the main reason. But hey, I'm not above criticism.

    Agree here. Kudos to you for not throwing the ban stick at a poster for criticizing. Looking forward to the football stuff as well.

    Re: now what??

    My displeasure with the state of the MBB team has kept me away from the board quite a bit. I don't like what is going on, but I am also sick of the endless threads about firing GMac. Hope you can supply some football stories to take the attention away from the basketball team.

    Exactly where else can you go to get things off your chest about issues related to ISU athletics. I have seen nothing negative except when discussing ISU basketball.

    Yeah but this is a football topic and look...it has already shifted to the basketball negativity. This is the problem IMO.
