Why does The Gazette Sports section snub the positive in favor of the negative?
My Sunday-morning-after-football ritual consists of grabbing The Gazette off the front steps and rifling through the growing number of increasingly overlooked ads for stores we will never shop at to get to the one section of the paper that I religiously read: Sports.
Each week I hope to read about the game I watched less than 24 hours before, only to be increasingly disappointed. While the state university football teams have all been less than stellar this year, everyone who follows football knows that the University of Iowa’s has been close to dismal.
However, unless you flip into the meat of the section, you would think that the state only has one university team.
I am a member of the CYCLONE Nation. I am All In, I am Rhoadish. And every Sunday, I look for a front-page grade, headline or photo by The Gazette detailing the successes (and failures, for there have been quite a few) of my team. And every Sunday, I am disappointed.
After last Saturday’s game, where Iowa State became bowl eligible with another game to go, won the game with their red-shirt freshman quarterback and scored over 50 points on Kansas, I had hoped that there would be a little more praise and celebration from a newspaper that claims to be fair and balanced rather than spending that much energy on a team that has done nothing but alienate fans all season.
