I realize that Arkansas is not in the Big 12 but that stadium and crowd tells me that Iowa State is wise not to try to compete with the southern schools in baseball.

Yep, there are few schools north of the Mason Dixon that can truly compete in baseball at this point. I love baseball but hockey makes way more sense for ISU if we ever look to add a men's sport (I know Title IX is blocking that currently).

Yeah a lot of the facilities for baseball in the South now are pretty sweet. That football tv money being spread around some to those parks.

Big deal. That's how you grab a racoon. Ever grab a possum? Even easier. ******* city slickers.
Yeah maybe you get lucky. The fur of the raccoon is pretty loose and they are fast, vicious, and powerful. Sure it can be done but rabies, severe bites and infections are not worth playing a hero with wild tooth and claw.

If ISU were to add another scholarship program, it would be wise to go with hockey rather than baseball.

I was kidding. No way in hell I would ever attempt to pick up a raccoon.

FWIW that's the general proper spot to grab an animal like that like how a mother carries their young...but it looked like that wasn't the first time he'd grabbed a raccoon.

Yes much like Borat mentions a wife with “plow experience” I think Arkansas probably has a decent amount of raccoon handling experience.
