    Fair. But anyone who doesn’t at least place wrestling 4th in that hierarchy (behind WBB) is lying to themselves.

    There are two that matter.
    1. FB
    2. MBB

    In the words of Metallica, and another else matters...

    I'm not a wrestling guy, but I think that's fair.

    Matters to you... whether you like it or not a significant percentage of the population in Iowa love wrestling. And that percentage is growing.

    Well 1st the food doesn't suck. You can take a family there everyone can get what they want because the menu is fairly large, the service is pretty good for as busy as it is, and it doesn't break the bank to go there.

    If you prefer to eat at $50-100 a person dinners go to all the high end places you want, Des Moines has a few options that will cover that for you. Ames has a couple that will cover that for you also if you throw your booze bill in on it. To each their own.

    Mickey's is actually a pretty ****** bar. Not sure why it's so popular when it has the moving space of a Manhattan studio.

    oooh, another hot take.

    Those home losses aren't because of the students.

    You've got this website pretty well pegged, but that's not what our traveling fanbase (or gameday at JTS) looks like, IMO.

    i don't give two ***** about Iowa State not having baseball. It doesn't really matter and people who are up in arms about it are just looking for something to complain about.

    Kudos to the OP as I've been wanting to type this out loud for years.

    There is no better song to suck the excitement/energy out of a stadium then The Bells of Iowa State. I want to shoot myself every time I hear it.

    I love baseball and I agree. If they did bring it back, the program would be sooo bad. Cap Tim wouldn’t cut it either.

    Football at Iowa State costs way to much Money for a family. With Parking, The tickets, Food. It's out of control.

    Hilton is a great venue but needs a ton of work done to it.

    Jamie Pollard has made more bad hires than good hires.

    For the record. Love Jamie Pollard and he is perfect for our University.

    Jamie Pollard is an attention wh0re. A good AD but inserts himself into the spotlight way more than is appropriate

    Oh God yes. You could play the Bells of Iowa State at the funeral of a war hero, and the soldier's grieving mother would be like "Hey, let's not go overboard"

    The Ames campus town area sucks. It's a shell of what it used to be and I feel sorry for today's students.

    Yeah.

    Kids too busy with their screens and trying to do well in school/get good jobs to go and drink and try to hook up with each other like they used to do.

    It's a damn shame.

    College Baseball in the Midwest is damn near irrelevant. I find it comical the number of "Iowa Baseball fans" that have somewhat jumped on the wagon the last few years.
