    New Uniforms Revealed

    Love this! I can live with the black jerseys since the helmet is still white with cardinal and gold!

    New Uniforms Revealed

    New Year = New Insight. Last year, I bitched about the alternate uniforms - being a traditionalist (I grew up as an Alabama fan). HOWEVER, after going to all the games last year for the first time since 1994, I really enjoyed all of the combinations! The ONLY issue I have is that I would like...

    Hickory Park! Oh, wrong thread. Go with a Credit Union.

    SEC vs. Big Xii Football Challenge?

    Well, 4 Big Xii teams are already in an SEC State (Texas), so...we might already have enough issues of our own. Of course, my thought was if things were settled enough to play. Sadly, if we continue along this trajectory - your point is very valid, and there will be no games at all. So, I was...

    SEC vs. Big Xii Football Challenge?

    Assuming there is a 2020 season, it seems logical with the Pac, B1G and ACC all only playing conference games. Here is one thought on the matter...That would be great for Iowa State! https://bamahammer.com/2020/07/12/alabama-football-should-the-sec-consider-an-sec-big-12-challenge/

    Who do we Replace Iowa WIth?

    Pac-12 is going to conference only games now, so Alabama (who was scheduled to play Southern California) is now available. Gulp. I want 'Bama!

    Anyone Use T-Mobile?

    T-Mobile is great. Have been on it forever and have no issues with it in Iowa or anywhere else. The best part is going overseas and booting up and getting instant access like you are at home without extra fees / charges. I have used it easily in South Africa, Australia, Ireland, Scotland and...

    Who do we Replace Iowa WIth?

    I would try to schedule a home and home with any P5 school interested. Mizzou or Arkansas would be my first two choices based on geography. Vanderbilt would be fun again and a really nice road trip.

    Formula One starts this weekend, am I the only fan?

    What ever happened to the Ruan Grand Prix in Des Moines?

    Formula One starts this weekend, am I the only fan?

    I thought "Hamilton" was only on the Disney + streaming last night, not on ESPN this morning! :p

    HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY

    I live Downtown, saw some of the fireworks to the west and listened to the staccato sound of them for most of the evening. Of course, my allergies are kicking up this morning! Sky is blue, sun in out, and all looks well though.

    HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY

    Anybody who takes a drink out of the Ohio River today would probably get sick and die. When I first moved to Cincinnati, they had a swim across the Ohio River event that I wanted to do until I read the "Recent Tetanus Shot Suggested" Yikes! I chose to pass on that event.

    Talk to me about Jim Walden

    And Iowa State STILL leads the all-time series 50-49-4 - even after the Snyder dominance for a quarter of a century.

    Talk to me about Jim Walden

    Plenty of good points pro and con brought up in this thread. I was in school and a young alum from 1989-94, and I only missed one home game (KU in 1990) - as I was out of town (FSU @ Miami game with my brother). The 1989 team was exciting and showed promise for the future, but 1990-4 flat...

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

    Well, I made that life choice already and moved back to Iowa after wandering around the country for 25 years. My wife is from Iowa, so that was the main reason, but I liked the move too. There are plenty of places left to visit, and I would be happy living in some other places; however, for...

    XFL

    Yep! I would support a team in Des Moines (where I live), and I support teams that land in Birmingham (where I grew up). Not interested in any of these other cities though. Chargers to Des Moines, NOW!

    2019 Hyundai Elantra?

    Oh yes! I forgot, I upgraded to the 2017 to get the back up camera, because of the previously mentioned ding (due to not having a camera) on the 2013 - along with the excellent trade in deal (win-win). I LOVE my backup camera, and the touchscreen radio is cool too. I still want my cell phone...

    2019 Hyundai Elantra?

    Man, I miss my cell phone holders on the 2013! I don't talk and drive, but they are handy to keep your phone charging and have a place to put it. Really handy on the passenger side especially. They don't have that on the 2017 (at least). No need to up-spend on a Sonata since a 2019 Elantra...
