Occupy Jack Trice, Rhoads Sees Replay, Why Not Stanzi?

Cyclone fans are still riding the wave of the greatest win in Iowa State history. Fans should enjoy every moment. This kind of feeling is what makes sport so addictive. You chase the high...

Paul Rhoads told me that after the game, he was celebrating with his buddies at the house, long into the night, when they noticed the replay of the game starting on ESPN. Naturally they watched. Rhoads will have a chance to leave ISU at some point, but there's only one place he can coach at home...

Love the reaction of Bama fans in Tuscaloosa as Jeff Woody scores the game winner for ISU:

I've found it refreshing on both SoundOFF and our radio show that Hawkeye fans have not tried to downplay ISU's moment at all. We need more of that. Be rivals, be reasonable...

The buzz is mostly gone from the Iowa-Nebraska game, but I'm hoping it picks back up by Friday. Can you remember the Hawkeyes winning a late season conference road game in a bowl season that excited fans less than Saturday at Purdue? It was a bad football game, but a win is a win. Especially a needed road win...

Lynn Melling did her Christmas shopping so long ago, I think there's a chance her friends and family receive beepers, VCRs, and Snuggies...

The Chiefs don't seem to believe in Ricky Stanzi. KC back-up QB Tyler Palko didn't play well at New England, but Stanzi stayed on the sideline. (Perhaps Stanzi felt conflicted playing a team called the Patriots?) Maybe we'll see Stanzi next game. What do the Chiefs have to lose? Then again, the way the Chiefs are playing, maybe it's better for Stanzi if he hangs on to the clipboard for now..

Stan Musial turned 91 Monday. Jeff Jorgensen sent this cool picture of Stan the Man in a very different time. He's working at a Pittsburgh grocery store owned by his wife's parents in 1942.

More generous donations in the No Shave November Stache for Cash fight against Cancer (. Among others, special thanks to Mara White, Jeff Hilsabeck, Dan Huser, Katie Stocking, and Anthony Farrell. I really appreciate it, and it makes it worth putting up with this:
No close-up please.

If you are a Stanzi fan, you should hope Palco finishes out the year as a starter. Throwing Stanzi into that fire would probably do more harm than good. The Chiefs are playing poorly and Stanzi doesn't have a giant S on his chest and wear a red cape, that I know of.
Be patient with his progress. Stanzi is going to be in this league for a long time and his time will come, but now isn't the time.

Apparently a 1st degree armed robbery charge and a $25000 bond can't keep you off the field if Paul Rhoads is coach. In fact why not allow the kid to go out there, be the Clones leading reciever and catch the game tying TD 3 days after his arrest. Coach Rhoads must be "so proud to be his coach"!

Hey moron. The alleged incident happened in June and Gary was suspended for 3 games because of it.
Tyler, why don't you try getting the facts before opening your pie-hole and looking like an ass with an inflamed hemorrhoid on it.

Tyler, also realize that a $25,000 BOND = $2500 BAIL. Pretty minimal, for a minimal offense. Let's not start the legal ball rolling between Iowa & Iowa State....

Nice, Tyler. Don't let the facts get in the way of your bitterness and jealousy.
