    Fire at Ross Hall

    Got an alert at 6:30 this morning that there is a fire at Ross and to avoid the area. Anyone have any more details? They appeared to be doing some renovations a few weeks ago on the first floor entrances, so I'm curious if that's where it started. Update: got an alert just now (7:30) that the...

    Ennio Morricone has passed away

    He was 91. Morricone’s filmography numbers well into the hundreds, a body of work over seven decades that, much like his most famous soundtracks, speaks for itself. But while he will be best remembered for aurally shaping the spaghetti western as we know it—penning legendary scores for...

    RV: Q & A

    Hoping that this can help others as well, so I'm leaving the title pretty generic. I had a relative tell me they just purchased an RV and they are hoping to bring it to Ames for a football game. They were wondering what they needed to do to park, how they acquire a decent spot, what kind of...

    Hilton South Pacific

    Thank you to all the fans that made the trip. Easily had one of the best crowds in attendance. All the ESPN commentators were quick to praise the fan turnout from Ames. Bill Walton even went so far as to say Duke and Iowa State brought the most money to the islands. That’s a good way to get...

    11/6 Traffic Thread

    I’m getting ready to leave Ames and there are billboards saying that the I-35 North exit will be closed beginning at 7 PM on Tuesday night. I believe they are going to install some of the beams for the flyover. If this is the case that will be a problem for those of you coming from North of 30...
