The Bird Level
ISU football fans numbed into indifference by long pattern of losing -- This is an absolute pointless story in the Trib by Mark Bennett. Not sure what he was trying to do with the column besides fill white space. Yawn.
Well written?I see NOTHING wrong with this column, it's sad yes, but it's all true. I think it's great that it was written, this guy got to the point. ISU has a long, long ways to go before it's more than a "member" of the Gateway conference. If this guy thinks this season (and the past 17 seasons) have been bad wait till next year with 2 new schools to compete against. One of them, NDSU, absolutely destroyed Central Michigan of the MAC 44-14 AT CMU on Saturday.
Nah, I don't see that considering the title photo they used on TribStar.com was a couple girls smiling and frolicing around Memorial Stadium after the Sycamores got blown out -- hence the numbed title.Perhaps the point was to point out to people around ISU and Terre Haute that college football is supposed to be fun. And, that college football at ISU clearly isn't fun. And, that people shoulldn't be OK with that. Hell, at most colleges, football Saturdays are an integral part of the great memories that make up your collegiate experience. How many of us have ANY memories of great football Saturdays (not the parties, but the games) that really defined that collegiate experience? I doubt that there are many of us. It's time ISU stopped short changing its students with a laughingstock football program. Either put the money into doing it right, or give it up.

Yeah, that is why I thought it was done in terrible taste, especially after I clicked on the photo and then found nothing to work towards a viable solution to the problem. I know if I was an influential sportswriter in Terre Haute, I'd help push the State football program.Ooo, didn't see that. Bad use of a photo. And see, I was letting Bennett get me all mad...I've gotta start thinking about basketball and get my blood pressure back down...:meditate:
