    To me that says the department is not offering enough and that those groups have found other, better sources of income.

      And they won't get off your lawn either.

      We aren't going down the political "kids are lazy" bull**** narrative. It's not true and has been said about every generation of kids for over 100 years in newspapers. Find a new line of bull**** to go with.

          You're free to have an opinion - you're not free to ignore facts and spew complete bull**** because you're angry at people younger than you. Especially when it's demonstrably false, has been proven false by any number of studies, and has been the same song screamed by old people for over a century.

          • The ****ing irony on blaming kids 14 and under for not wanting to work for free inside the UNIDome to clean up other peoples **** yet ignoring the AD not wanting to work to find someone to do it, work to find ways to make it happen, or even maybe ****ing do it themselves.

            When you're entire system is built on underpaying, or not paying, young people to do **** jobs and then go "Why don't you want to do **** jobs that I wouldn't be caught dead doing for **** pay that I wouldn't even wipe my ass with" you have a broke system

                Agreed, kids these days are just lazy and entitled. And they all won't stop listening to that dang rock and roll music that's poisoning the youth. This never would've happened if Buddy Holly was still topping the charts. But now all you kids listen to that uppity Chuck Berry and root for that war criminal Cassius Clay, no wonder you catch the traits of those people. By those people I of course mean celebrities, and if you thought I meant something else, that makes you the real racists.

                • Pretty much all jobs can be filled, if you pay enough

                  • Boy a few of you took this in a weird direction. I don’t care who does the job. If the department can’t find enough incentives to get volunteers there damn well better pay the staff to get the jobs done.
                    If computers ruled college basketball the way they do football, we'd have skipped all this March Madness monotony and just waited a month for the Kansas-Kentucky title game. And watched Northern Iowa play Cornell in the Poulan Weedeater Bowl. ~ Dwight Perry The Seattle Times

                      That's where I'm at. If we can't get volunteer groups, then leadership in the department needs to take it on themselves. I've had to step out of my lane and out of my job description MANY times over my career and with my employer. Especially during and since Covid. I'm in management - it's what we do. It's not always fun. I don't usually like it. But it's the right thing to do.
                      "...the Northern Iowa men's basketball team reached the ultimate highs before hitting a devastating low. Unexpected success, followed by unimaginable failure. And they owned it -- all of it -- for the world to see. Like men. Like leaders. Like champions -- in a way no tournament bracket could ever define."

                        I'm not rehashing Jake for the thousandth time other than to point out he's vastly underpaid compared to his market value and we should celebrate his loyalty. It's so easy to just point to 'he makes the moneys' in a vacuum and realize he's basically playing with one arm tied behind his back in every other aspect of the program.
                        I'm just saying historically, but still hold high hopes for this season.
                        Which winning percentage is better: 65% or 61%?
