    Would you rather be in the big 12 or the big 10?

    BXII seems much more appealing to me for a few reasons: 1) it interests me zero to play the likes of Rutgers, Maryland, Penn State or Indiana. Although I suppose if we weren't already used to playing WVU, TCU and BU, they probably wouldnt interest me at all either. 2) if we at times feel like...

    If you had to pick up and move where would you go?

    Somewhere less populated than Iowa. Take me west, but not to colorado. I'm thinking Wyoming or Montana.

    Top 5 Favorite Movies

    Braveheart Gladiator The Departed 21 Jump Street I'm gonna cop out #5 and say the LOTR trilogy as a whole (not including Hobbit). If I have to pick one, give me The Two Towers

    10 Years Ago...

    I feel so lucky to have been a student from 2011-2015. I missed Fred's first year when they didn't do a whole lot and arguably saw one of the greatest stretches ever of ISU bball

    Breweries to survive coronavirus?

    I'd worry most about the small and relatively new breweries that, while they may be well-liked, don't have the huge fan following that the likes of Barntown and Lua have managed to capture. In my area, I'm thinking specifically of Brightside and Fenceline, and have concentrated my to-go buying...

    2020 Commits Stats & Senior Performance

    It feels slightly awkward watching him play with and against 9 tiny white kids. Anyways, Isaiah Austin immediately comes to mind watching him, although XF actually got some weight on his 7 foot frame. If he can get the mental toughness and physicality to bang with high-major players...

    Firetrucker's Dan Heiderscheit passed away

    This is a huge bummer. Dan was a great guy. I grew up with his son in Ankeny, and got to have several chats with Dan at the brewery and on bike rides. He was quirky and very clever and always a joy to chat with

    How bad are athlete's parents?

    Am I the only one that would find satisfaction in telling parents to stick their complaints up their own ass and either let me do my job, or transfer their kid to a different school?

    This is why Prohm must go........

    The frustrating thing to me is, on paper this team SHOULD have shooters. Haliburton shot 40+% last year, Bolton was right around 40, Nixon was over 30, and even Jacobson IIRC was at least mid-30's. How has every one of these individuals regressed from long distance this season? Is it an...

    Vote for your Lineup Preference

    I like Haliburton, Nixon, Bolton, Jackson, Conditt. Have not been a fan of the 2-post lineups this year. Jackson is still getting his feet under him but seems like a "Nixon-lite" on defense and has grit, and gives you a better shot to hit a 3 than Jacobson.

    New Bracketology

    I see BU higher than a 6, and UT lower than a 5. How many years in a row now has texas severely underperformed with a bunch of 4 and 5 star recruits?
