    Anyone else hearing that JP has already decided Prohm is coming back?

    Wow! People are throwing money around like it grows on trees. 'My sources' say this, 'my sources' say that. If I had a nickel for those....

    TX School Song

    It wasn't at grave risk to the world. The Freedom of Information laws revealed documents regarding the stunning lead the United States had over Russia in nearly every military metric, the detailed knowledge of everything going on in Cuba, and the preparedness we had over them. In the end...

    Anyone else hearing that JP has already decided Prohm is coming back?

    And look where they're at now. Hmmmm.

    *** Official Iowa State Season Thread ***

    Soccer. HS->Div 1(non-paid)->2 over aged teams... over 30 years. I'll never forget my first game with one of my last teams. Down 6-0 at half. And coach asked what the 'new guy' had to say during halftime. We won 8-7. Not the most athletically gifted, but God gave me a great mind for the game.

    Life is not about where you finish athletically. It's about what you learned along the way. Geez. I can't believe some of you want to brand players lives based on a bad year. FYI: In my career, I played for 8 organizations. Every single one was in last place when I joined them and in 1st...

    Cyclone Fanatic is doing a great job on the coaching situation

    Oh crap. There goes my other eyeball. Well, the silver lining is I don't have to read this gibberish anymore.

    Oh. Love to hear about the 3d printer. Advancing that technology will vastly improve so many industries, it's just plain hard to imagine. There are so many applications of that which will benefit not only society, but the planet as well.

    Thomas Edison Already Solved The Renewable Energy Storage Issue

    I'm in the computing industry. Of course I know Moore's Law. But, that doesn't excuse the wasteful use of electricity. Furthermore, factoring in population growth, we're using significantly more. Plus factor in the electrical consumption to manufacture the evergrowing use of silicon and...

    Thomas Edison Already Solved The Renewable Energy Storage Issue

    We've bought into the glutinous use of electricity. I think everyone can agree that we don't need half the stuff built into every appliance. We really don't need the 2x square feet increase in the average home over the past 40 years. But, hey, if another form of electricity is better, safer...

    Cyclone Fanatic is doing a great job on the coaching situation

    It's amazing what trending 'opinions' can do to destroy things further than they already are. The very notion of 'hot' is going to scare recruits off. Add in the salt thrown on him this year, I see a very difficult job of him reeling in quality recruits. And, as much of a Prohm supporter as...

    JTS Improvements - Want More

    Wow! This was a great explanation. As imagined, 'computer related' studies are spread across the specific disciplines with a strong core for supporting those studies. There are so many areas I see the need for better development (eg AI security, AI branding, video water marking, licensing...

    The fiscal status of the department is in very good condition. The health of the conference is better because of JP. Heck, one could argue the conference exists because of him. While not all the records are better, the overall health of athletics is the best in my 50 years of affiliation with...

    Thanks!! Great info. Seems like a resource sharing entity, more so than an instructional entity. Regardless, step in the right direction.

    *** Official Iowa State Season Thread ***

    Wow! We've come to the point of not believing what actually comes out of people's mouths. We're at a point in humanity where the truth is so over boldened with egos spewing what they 'want' to be the truth, but have little to no evidence to support their claims. 'Sources'. All I've seen from...
