University of Northern Iowa
I don't know how many of you have read the Northern Iowan's last two issues. There was an article in last Friday's that I wanted to call everyone's attention to.
What it boils down to is this. Bucknell qualified for the NCAA tournament, and were assigned to play in Oklahoma City, where UNI was playing. The problem was, Bucknell couldn't afford to bring their pep band. UNI's kind, midwestern solution, play as their pep band, too. For those of you who don't know, Bucknell ended up toppling 3rd seeded Kansas in that game. Today's issue of the NI had a letter from the Bucknell team and their coach thanking us for our support. So if you know someone in the pep band, thank them for their outstanding example of sportsmanship. If you're on the pep band, thank you for being such an outsanding example of the University.
Okay, that sounded vey formal and inflated, but thanks for being good people.
