Cyclone Nation?

Iowa State has a student-recruitment billboard up at the corner of Capitol Drive and Green Bay/MLK.

I guess that's not as weird as it seemed at first--Messmer High School is on the other side of the overpass, and Rufus King HS is in the area. Lots of potential customers students to enroll for a year to get those diversity numbers up. But it was odd as hell to see any mention of ISU so far east of the Mississippi.

(In ten years, I've met three people in Milwaukee who even knew there was an Iowa State before they met me and my cardinal-and-gold wardrobe--and that was back in 2001 when there was that horrible basketball tragedy.)
