    Yeah well... We all remember making fun of our little brother. And then that day came when you looked at him and thought "Crap, when did he become taller than me?" There comes a time when you just know your time has passed and it's their spotlight now.

    Great post, and I was thinking the same thing. This is by far the most coverage the Gazette has given an ISU media day. I was thinking, hmm, looks like someone at the Gazette has decided it might be time to hedge their bets on the Hawks.

    OK, here's the scoop. I'm guessing that the Linn County Attorney consulted with the Johnson County Attorney and decided to issue an order suppressing the release of any information regarding the Cyclone football program. Probably something about being afraid to violate the privacy rights of students.

    The real Gazette (which you can view online in it's paper-like form) did have a few good articles and some great pictures from media day. And once again those uniforms look sharp. I can't wait to see them in person.

    You are not an idiot, I wasn't being sarcastic at all. If you have either a hard copy or look at the e-dition you will see the coverage of media day, which, again, was quite good.

    And yet the link provided in the original post shows ZERO media day coverage. One would have to read your mind and click on the separate "Read the E-Edition" link to get where you wanted us to go.

    Maybe they realize that there are more ISU graduates living in Linn county than Iowa graduates? Just saying. Do mouth-breathing Iowa fans actually buy the paper anyhow?

    IOWA STATE FOOTBALL
    Positions wide open

    Competition keen in Cyclone camp


    By Eric Petersen
    For The Gazette
    AMES — If Ben Lamaak sat down today, and penciled in Iowa State’s starting offense, would he be confident that on Aug. 28, against South Dakota State, the Cyclones’ lineup would look the same?
    Last year there was Meyer, Blythe, Bowen, Rubin, Culbertson — standouts who were surefire starters.

    Freshman who spurned Aggies likes ISU vibe
    Receiver Johnson welcome addition to depleted corps
    By Eric Petersen
    For The Gazette
    AMES — Never mind how, or that members of his immediate family desperately wanted Sedrick Johnson to play elsewhere.
    He’s on campus, in uniform and hoping to become an immediate contributor at wideout for Iowa State’s football team.

    Running back Bass’ future at ISU uncertain
    By Chuck Schoffner
    For The Gazette
    AMES — J.J. Bass is still in limbo.
    The senior running back might well be a part of Iowa State’s football team this season. Then again, he might not. Coach Gene Chizik said at Saturday’s media day that Bass, the Cyclones’ secondleading rusher last season, is making progress on the obligations he needs to meet to be reinstated, but he’s not there yet.

    Thank. Great read.

    I wonder if JJ Bass is being used as an example? Coach Chizik may be just trying to set the tone with him for the rest of the team that he's not going to take any B.S.

    The Register also has a lot of good articles including video and tons of photos. Might want to check that at out.

    How about this negative story in the Gazette.

    Cyclones could have growing pains in store

    By Eric Petersen
    For The Gazette


    [​IMG] (AP)
    Iowa State football coach Gene Chizik speaks with reporters Wednesday during the Big 12 football media day in Kansas City, Mo.


    KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Don't believe the worst is far behind you, Cyclone fans.

    Year 2 of the Gene Chizik era may not be a whole lot more successful than the first.
