    USA Today runs circles around DSM Local Media....

    Wow, imagine this. A newspaper getting quotes from an actual Iowan on the situation, CHARLES GRASLEY, and it is a NATIONAL paper.

    Wow, its so rare to see a publication who uses quotes and has actual sources these days.

    Nebraska eyes Big Ten, could vote Friday on conference shift - USATODAY.com


    Now contrast that article with THIS drivel from the Rag quoting how HAWKEYE fans feel about the possibility of ISU in the Big 10, vs looking to do an article asking how ISU fans feel about the potential breakup of the Big XII.

    Truly amazing! Hopefully this clearly proves to all of our friendly media visitors (Yes I'm talking to you Jon Miller, Matt Parault, Kenny Miller, Marty Tirrell, Chris Hassel, etc.) where us Cyclone fans really stand. It makes me sick...

    The Marc Hansen article is really amazing. I read the DMR about 3 times a year, but I won't be visiting their website or ever buying that paper again. Really amazing how this is going down in the press. ISU atheltics are under attack and people are laughing about it. Very hard to beleive, I knew people didn't care, but to openly cheer the potential demise of the athletic department is something i did not expect.

    I thought the article was just trying to show that Barry Crist is a DB. Guess I will need to reread the article.

    I now have revisited my true hatred for everything Iowa, I hope they fail big time this year, too much hype they probably will.....if past trends continue.....

    The caption of the picture on the Hansen article reads:

    "ISU kicker Bret Culbertson celebrates his game-winning field goal against Iowa in 2009l"

    I guess I turned the game off too early, who knew that we came back to win that one last year.

    It's even worse when you realize that USA Today and the Des Moines Register share the same ownership (Gannett)

    Uh, the USA Today story is a wire story taken from the Register.

    It is hard to imagine a more biased media.

    A loss of stature at any of our state's universities is nothing to celebrate.

    I hate U of Iowa Athletics.....mostly their fans that never even went to school there. (They are the typical ones that run their mouths.) Their arrogance really makes our state look terrible.
