    Some hawk or KU fan probably wrote it up. I don’t like the slant.

    My guess is they chose ISU becuase they aren't dumb and know that ISU fans flock to any ISU related post haha. 10 bucks that ISU was selected out of a group of fan bases that is vocal on social media, and won out because it was just "small" enough for people to find it “believable haha

    Lol, probably written by an ISU student or alum. This could have been written 10 years ago and been just as in point

    Funny thing is ISU while maybe not a diversity icon (Full disclosure don't know the #'s too lazy to look up) It is waaaay more diverse than it was in the early 80's. It's the onion so it really doesn't matter but I didn't think it was all that funny.

    Did someone get paid to write that? Not even remotely close to funny.

    This is what happens when they accept just anyone into the writer's workshop

    Yeah, I was confused if I missed ISU being in the news for something like this or if it was random.

    I think random but it's still really boring no matter the school.

    Time for thread derail--what about ISU would a good onion article be about?

    Kinda stupid but honestly at what point does ISU get too big? In-state kids deserve opportunities, no doubt, and I know that the out-of-state kids are worth more in tuition but I can't help but think that there is a certain point at which kids who would have been more than fine 15-20 years ago can definitely get lost in the shuffle

    Like with most Onion-related things, the headline is better than the article.
