Fails to say that the band was forcing and pushing their way through the crowd. Makes it sounds like cyclone fans did all the pushing.

I don' t know, watching Pollard tear down his dumbass question was kind of entertaining.

Imagine if we had a guy like Gundy at our program. Randy wouldve been on the receiving end of a rant or twelve by now

During this press conference he wondered if there was crowd control issues at ISU by bringing up a student's space heater that caught his tent on fire outside of Hilton when in line for the KU bball game.

It was so fun watching Jaime verbally destroy him.

He can stay with the pos DMR, but ISU should stop doing business with him.

The only way the DMR Sports makes money is by being a glorified fan site. See Chad’s hard on for the Hawks. If they won’t stop biting the hand that feeds them, we should stop feeding them.

Honestly the DMReg should just subcontract out its ISU coverage to CF.

I would hate to see CF change, but I have privately hoped the journalists on here end up replacing clowns like Peterson at some point. Who would be a better choice?

That would just (1.) have to be the desire of CW and etc., because working there is going to be very different than basically having their own shop and (2.) not lead to them losing their "voice" in the process. I have worked for a mom-and-pop of <20 employees and a large corporation. There are huge differences and differing cultures from the environment alone.

The issue with Randy is that he got "stuck" covering Iowa State. The beat writers used to rotate every couple of years but now the Register has their daily Iowa knob polishing and we got stuck with the senile beat writer that just can't possibly put a positive spin on anything... I swear the crazy f***** goes out of his way to crap on Iowa State

Quote from RP's article on this because I knew it would be a piece of ****.

"Pollard chastised the Iowa band for failing to exit from the open east exit and instead exited through a crowded west gate with "thousands" of people. "

Which is also funny that one of Iowa’s “5 points” was that the band director for Iowa and the ISU Ops director got in a verbal confrontation. GEE, I wonder what that was about?

Lol, why is there double quotations around thousands? Theres no doubt thousands, in a stadium of tens of thousands of people, were trying to exit at the same time.

I am assuming that on his small market **** pay he can't afford to retire. Seriously, how much can a part time hack in a struggling media earn in real American dollars?

Same with the Iowa band member berating security for net letting them in the Iowa State locker room.

Combine this with the Iowa band steamrolling fans with a ladder, and it’s clear the Iowa band’s behavior should be investigated.

Yes. We already know what hok fans do once they get inside ISU facilities. People end up missing their ****. That security guard should get a promotion.

Maybe this will be the last straw for Randy. Pollard is going to lose his mind when he reads this.
