Who's Dreading Class? Not Me…For Now
Cyclones of all generations, today
marks a special day that only comes once a year. It's a day where everybody,
even Brent Blum goes to class. It's a day when you are assigned no homework (in
all sane classes) and it's a day in which every freshman girl looks like she
should star in the hit MTV show
Today is the first day of classes
Unfortunately, as a senior, I happened to score an 8 a.m. media law class on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
How ridiculous is that?
Today doesn't only mark the first
day of classes. If you're an ISU graduate, you'll know what I'm talking about
here. Remember back when you were on campus? You get out of a late class and you
can hear the marching band practicing the hit song Mony Mony outside of the design
building? You walk by
I got that feeling this morning. I got that feeling not only for the pride that I have in this amazing university, but I finally felt like it was college football season. Oh get this; local bars are having special parties on the Wednesday before the Toledo Rockets come into town.
I'm not the only student feeling this. The players officially begin "practice" today. Professors are back from long breaks and "Tuba" is in the house.
Everybody can feel it. It's here and I'm damn proud to be a Clone today.
I'm freshly moved to
I got up at seven to walk to my class this morning, and instead of being angered by the alarm, I was actually ready to go. I threw on my jeans, my old Clarinda shirt, and my worn out Cyclone cap and took the 20 minute walk to class.

something that I had never felt before. I felt anxious to go to school. Maybe
because it's my final year at
I'm actually in the library type this thing right now…yes the library. I've spent more time on this computer today than I have this library in the past four years. But you know what; it's really not too bad.
I love this library. I love this
campus (which is the 7th most beautiful in the country). Most of all,
Let's keep it real though, a week from now I will HATE going to class, this feeling can't last long.
In other football notes, I have received emails and calls from people today asking me about the Tyrone McKenzie rumor. A rumor has surfaced that Tyrone won't be joining the team this year and I am hear to put that to sleep right now. I'm looking forward to watching Tyrone become one of the best linebackers this school has ever seen, you just watch and wait.
I had the opportunity to have a long talk with new OL commit Grant Garner yesterday and he is one of the nicest kids I've ever interviewed since being at CN. He actually called me sir. I don't get that very often. His mother was a sweet lady and Grant is jacked up about becoming a Clone. Look for a full update in a few days.
