    Tradition of turmoil

    I read this article in the daily and thought it was a pretty crazy story. We must have been pretty bad in football in 1953 to go this crazy after a win. I assume none of you were involved, but anyone's parents or grandparents? I think ISU students deserve a day off when we finally get another conference win!

    The story is apart of their 10 things you might now know about Iowa State.

    They also had a 12 defining moments story:

    It's not what they said that I found funny, it's the way they said it! :biglaugh: I'm just imagining thousands of students throwing down their monocles and declaring their indignation with the president.

    Grandma and Grandpa knew how to do a riot the right way.

    I don't recommend anyone doing a sit down protest at the Highway 30 and Highway 69 intersection these days.

    Re: The 12 Defining moments article -

    How could they not include the 1996 victory over Kansas for the final Big 8 MBB championship??

    Not that I think beating Iowa is a big deal, but I think it would be fun to have the Monday after the Iowa game be a university holiday (win or lose cause you still booze).
