    I'd love to hear the reasoning behind this one. Hopefully they didn't pay some advertising agency a boatload of money to make them look this bad.

    Somebody HAS to send this into failblog. I'd do it, but it's blocked at my job.

    But will it apply to your major?

    Maybe that's the plan....keep you in school paying tuition while you continue to get that advancing C.

    But she tried very hard to make it happen and D+ happened. This is the advantage for going to private school.

    That is an absolutely idiotic marketing campaign when you consider that Iowa Basketball has a 0% chance of making the post season for the next 2 or 3 years. Now if it is in reference to the terrible job that Fran will do there before he gets his butt run out of town then I can agree with that.

    Make sure you click the link that tells you what "Let's Be MAD Again" means. That's the best part.
