    Tony Lewis of 80s band the Outfield dies at age 62

    I had no idea that John Spinks had also died not that long ago. I loved their debut album "Play Deep." Wore out the tape I had.

    Harold Reid of the Statler Brothers dies at age 80.

    For those old enough to remember the Statler Brothers, their bass vocalist, Harold Reid, has died at the age of 80. The Statlers were known for their country and gospel music, 24 years of hit singles (beginning with "Flowers on the Wall"), and comedy. Harold Reid was probably the biggest...

    WBB: what losing game result would you flip?

    So, I was kind of inspired to create something for WBB fans by reading other things on CF. If there was one game where the Iowa State women's basketball team lost that you could flip to a win, which one would it be and why (if there is any particular reason)? Some possibilities: *Iowa State...

    WBB Iowa State - Iowa 12/11/2019

    Just getting a thread started for the game tonight. I like our chances to halt the three game skid to the most modestly talented coach in the Big 10 (and cap her career win total in Hilton at "1," meaning: never again). The shots have to fall, for sure. Too bad the game is on a Wednesday...

    Post season volleyball thread

    Thought I'd go ahead and make a new thread for the post season. This can be an easy place to post anything about anyone playing, not just Iowa State. I always find this sport's tourney fascinating because there always seem to be surprising upsets and interesting match-ups. I noticed from...
