    The future of NIL?

    Pretty genius idea. People can donate to a non-profit entity which will arrange and pay for athletes for appearances. An indirect way for fans to pay student athletes. Wonder if ISU could take advantage of something like this.

    Jury Duty

    I’m sitting in the courthouse waiting, waiting, waiting for something to happen after checking in for jury duty this morning. This is my first time ever having to report so no idea what to expect. I’m swamped at work so I’m hoping not to get picked. But also intrigued by the idea of sitting on...

    Highest Rated Bowl Game

    Last night’s Cheez-It Bowl is the highest rated bowl to date. Big numbers for a Wednesday afternoon/early evening. Also, highest rating that that game in 8 years. Yeah we lost but great exposure for ISU football.

    By the numbers - not winning in the margins

    Sobering stats. Basically turnovers and special teams are the reasons why we are 2-2 and not 3-1 or 4-0.

    Fiesta Bowl most watched ISU game in history?

    http://bit.ly/2XbO2ar Almost 7 million people watched ISU/Oregon. Not bad for a mid-afternoon kick. Is this the most watched ISU game in history? Big 12 Championship game had about 3 million viewers so I’d guess this has to be the most eyeballs ever on an Iowa State football game, by far.

    Annual Matt Campbell in demand - 2020 version

    As expected, Campbell's name is on nearly every potential major coaching opening. Could Campbell leave this year, anything is possible. But it's fun watching national writers throw out his name for openings that he wouldn't even take a phone call from. If Campbell wasn't interested in...

    Newspapers compared to other media

    We hear over and over and over "subscribe to your local newspaper", "support local journalism", "content isn't free!" from many media folks. I get it, they want people to pay for their content. Serious question - why are they different from other forms of media that make the free model work...

    Can we put this to bed?

    That fans that are critical of this team and this coach are somehow rooting for the team to lose or are lesser fans? The crowd at the game was locked, loaded, and ready to explode if given the opportunity by this team. 14,000+ to watch a 7-6 team that got blown out by its rival and lost to a...

    Alex Golesh to UCF

    Randy Peterson reporting Alex Golesh leaving ISU to be the OC at UCF. Tough loss for us. But you can never blame someone for taking a big promotion in college football.

    Did we underachieve? Meet expectations?

    I've been thinking a lot about how many players within the program are playing pro ball. And now several NBA contracts. Guys playing pro ball oversees: Babb, McGee, Ejim, Matt Thomas, McKay Guys with actual NBA contracts: Niang, Morris, Nader Guys with 2-way contracts: Naz, Burton We...
