    Tyrese Hunter PG '21 - Committed!

    These are the recruits we have to get to win in the Big 12. Hunter and Foster are a good Top 100 pairing along with Dubar and Blackwell as Top 150ish guys. Add two more Top 100 guy and a good transfer, and you have a salty team.

    Sorry, you've already canceled the season. You don't get to bring the pessimism to the game discussion.

    He's been wrong about pretty much everything since this all started.

    Newcomers updated height, weight, and numbers

    I'm not sure how you could tell from that angle. Jacobson's biggest problem was shooting on the way down on his jump shot. Foster looks like more of a set shooter from that video.

    Perception changes so quickly in the current media landscape. Anyone that acts like they know what's going to happen is just guessing. The ADs are beholden to the media and liberal administrations at most universities (I say that as a liberal) just as much as they are to the science. If we start...

    Ball state added to Schedule

    ADs and coaches have been open about their lack of knowledge. Their job is to prepare as if they will be playing until it's officially canceled. Part of the process is already underway, and so far, it seems like they've handled outbreaks well. What we've learned so far is that a bubble is...

    In the Trump era, information is a liberal agenda.

    Worst ISU Football Team You've Watched

    Good point. That Iowa game was so tough to watch. You're right about the TCU game. You could see the OL go from worst in FBS to just worst in the Big 12.

    Worst ISU Football Team You've Watched

    I lost a good chunk of change that day. Watched the game at Es Tas, and I think it was only on one TV by the end of the game.

    Worst ISU Football Team You've Watched

    That they rebounded in 2004 was miraculous. And then 2005 was close to being a special season. Of course both of those seasons ended in typical ISU fashion, but 2003 was just on another level.

    Worst ISU Football Team You've Watched

    Giving up 500+ rushing yards to Oklahoma in 2014 while losing 59-14 deserves mention as well. I went to way too many games from 2013-2016.

    Worst ISU Football Team You've Watched

    OK, so not the most uplifting thread, but I think we're pretty used to discussing our abysmal history as a football program. Which ISU was the most hopeless that you watched in person? The 0-10-1 team was obviously terrible, but I was too young to catch any of those games. Listening to the...

    Yes, I will wear my cardinal and gold overalls with gusto. But a mask?! How embarrassing

    "Face diaper" wasn't funny the first time it was used. I live in the middle of a mid size U.S. city. I walk to the grocery store, coffee shop, etc. I have a relatively active social life. I run outside 3-4 times a week. People here dine outside, hang out at the park, go to friends' houses for...

    ***Official 2019-2020 Transfer Thread***

    Are G-League contracts "good"? If you're not a two-way player, I'm not sure those contracts have improved. I think THT is a two-way guy, so he's making a decent amount. But I doubt Wigginton was making any money, which is partly why he signed in Israel. In my opinion, he made a big mistake...

    New Uniforms Revealed

    I love the top helmet, but I'll pass on the bottom helmet. Cardinal/red and yellow/gold with nothing else is just an ugly combo imo. I love Iowa State, but we weren't blessed with the best colors.

    New Uniforms Revealed

    The I-State logo is good, not great, but it's here to stay. But that doesn't mean we can't use retro logos from time to time. I also think the I-State logo needs a touch-up. It looks a little cheap and corny. I'm no graphic designer, so not sure what needs to change, but I never buy gear with...

    How can you be this dense? I don't know about ending the pandemic in a month, but yes, if we all wore masks, we could significantly curtail the spread of the virus. If we all wore masks and kept 6 feet apart, we could end it much sooner than wearing no masks and not keeping 6 feet apart. How is...

    Masks aren't 100% effective. When combined with social distancing, the result is much closer to 100% effective. The anti-mask crowd is so bizarre.
