    Well, it's finally over

    This. The national media ruined it. I walked into the first round tourney game against Maryland with an older couple, Stanford season ticket holders. They saw my ISU shirt and asked what I thought of CC being that I was an Iowa native. They were not CC fans, agreed that over exposure made it...

    ***NCAA First Round: (7) Iowa State vs. (10) Maryland [Fri., 6:30 CT]***

    Haven't read all the comments but live close enough to get to this game, first time watching lady Cyclones live. Took my daughter, what a show we got. IMO, there were a lot of Cyclone fans, I was surprised. Most, like me, live in the area and were super excited for this draw. We were scattered...

    What do you miss/appreciate about Iowa?

    The little things add up. Green grass. Schools with indoor hallways and cafeterias. Funding for public school. School buses for kids and sports. Big store parking lots with spots for cars bigger than a prius. Grocery stores without massive lines. HyVee. AE. Football Saturdays in Ames. Almost 20...

    Traveling to Tahoe...needs ideas

    Truckee area is great. Fall should be beautiful, if warm, boat on the lake or try Donner Lake. Hikes: Shirley Lake trail is good (near Squaw) and lots of pretty hikes in Emerald Bay (west/south part of lake). Hikes are plenty and can find something for all levels. South Lake more congested and...
