Under first-year coach Gene Chizik, Iowa State took a major step forward in defeat.
I missed it; I was at a luncheon in Bay View for a co-worker I don't like all that much (and even less now).
I was really surprised by all the businesses on Kinnickkinnick; when I first started coming to MKE in 1998, I got dragged out to the Collector's Edge periodically, and it was the only open-looking storefront in a scary neighborhood of abandonment. Now there's coffee and antiques and tanning everywhere. On the way home I stopped at Downtown Books; I bought a German translation of Gone With the Wind. It's good to have goals.
