    Welch Ave bathroom question

    I thought this was going to be about Brooke Burke.

    Athlon - Big 12 Coaches Talk Anonymously About Conference Foes for 2022

    There is a zero percent chance Matt Campbell participates in things like this, right? Seems like something he would hate.

    Retirement Targets

    I use it. It’s ok but the links between my accounts constantly break and it’s almost more maintenance than it’s worth for how often I check it.

    Hunter Dekkers Concerns?

    Was just going to same the same thing. I don't want Matt Campbell to hype up anyone preseason because all he could do last year was talk about how great the O-line was. And we all know how that turned out...:D

    Retirement Targets

    Reading about I bonds (something I didn’t know existed). If I don’t need the $10k max for 5 years, why shouldn’t I buy them? Anyone have any recommendation to not buy them? 9.62% for this bi-annual.

    SicEm365 Blows Up The Athletic TV Ratings Article on Big 12 vs Pac 12

    And this is over 8 years. Do the last 5 where ISU hasn't had a Kansas+ football program and TCU wasn't in the MWC and I bet the Big 12 performs even better.

    Urbandale restaurants

    I have since its less than a mile from our house but its a really weird system. Online ordering is very convenient but you have to get your own glasses, napkins, condiments, silverware, and non-alcoholic drinks yourself. Basically servers bring your alcoholic drinks and food out. It's not...

    Urbandale restaurants

    It’s serve yourself, definitely not suited for a business dinner. I second Urban Grill and Cosi Cucina. Taki or Irinas could work too (neither of these are beer places).

    Hy-Vee's weirdest business decision yet?

    This isn't surprising at all. I'm still trying to figure out how they can make money when they 1) have someone shop for all of your groceries and 2) have the infrastructure in place to store and pickup your groceries - and its all free. Or even worse, charge you $9.95 to deliver your groceries...

    Hy-Vee's weirdest business decision yet?

    Drive for Uber (or another gig job) and set your hours/schedule or work for minimum wage and get screamed at by a bunch of Karens all day? Lots of people choosing the former.

    Hy-Vee's weirdest business decision yet?

    I used to go to the Urbandale Hy-Vee as our go-to. Then a year or two ago they shuffled every aisle around so after 3-4 years of learning where every way, I had to start over. No thanks. That along with their higher prices and closing the distribution center so there are 20 personal shoppers...

    PODCAST: Catching up with Allen Lazard

    This was really interesting. I like that Allen was honest and he’s clearly not an ISU homer. Him saying he would have transferred immediately if NIL offers were presented. He, like probably 90%+ of players, wants the $$$ and the school is less important.

    PODCAST: With JR Blount

    He gave up a lot of good program information. Well worth the listen.

    Big 12/ Pac 12 Merger (keep all the teams)

    This is the same guy that last year wrote an entire article how the Big 12 leftovers were worth $12 mil per school per year. Now he’s saying because Oregon and Washington are valuable, they should subsidize the rest of the 8 schools? THAT IS EXACTLY WHY OU/Texas left. And USC/UCLA. It’s a take...

    SI Desirability Rankings

    This is one of the more comprehensive analyses I’ve seen. Most are lazy “pick the top brands” but this is a good weighted average of many things that matter in college sports. Reviewing these (ISU is #27) it’s hard to argue with them...
