    Was in Madison, WI over the weekend. Yeah ISU's campus town is a dingleberry on the tail of dog. There street system is a freaking nightmare compared to Ames though!!

    That does have a lot to do with it but the decline of Campus Town started several years ago. The buildup of West Ames has a lot to do with it too. Prior to Uber it was damn near impossible to get from Welch to West Ames without a DD or walking.

    Any 'excitement' around college baseball must just be really dedicated fans as a culture and it's just not a thing in Iowa in general.

    I lived in CR for a few years back in the day so I spent a lot if time in Iowa City with friends and the Ped Mall is such a good setup.

    Towns built on lakes typically don't have exact grid systems.

    The only area's where ISU excels academically is the Ag College and Veterinarian College. Every other study area is below average.

    Change the name to The Cowbells of Iowa State. People will see it in a whole new light.

    Ames is a dump and I'd never consider living there ever again.

    Are you a realist about Softball, M&W golf, M&W T&F, M&W CC, Swimming/Diving, and Soccer to the point of having to bash them at all opportunites? Because that's how you come across about wrestling. Taking every opportunity to bash the program. It gets old.

    Nobody is arguing that it deserves top billing. Literally nobody. The realistic place for it at ISU is 3rd or 4th. The argument for placing it 3rd ahead of WBB would be that we are much more likely to be contending for team trophies/national championships in wrestling than WBB and the fan support being similar.

    That's not the fight song's fault.

    I wouldn't know.

    If you insult Matt Thomas' abs you're in big trouble.

    ISU did not invent the computer, atomic bomb or the Rice Krispy bar which means that ISU's greatest invention is Hooters.

    Couldn't tell you. I was at Iowa State prior to everything being built out there. I'm sure it was an option but just relaying what I was told by people who ave lived out there.
