First issue

The first issue of The Times-Delphic hit campus Thursday. The online edition is coming soon. The Times-Delphic is doing something different with its Web site, which is still under development.

What did you think the big news stories were in Thursday's paper?

Hosting the 2008 NCAA Track and Field championships will be a great opportunity for Drake to show off to the rest of the country and to the NCAA. The event is in June so most students probably won't attend, but Drake and the Greater Des Moines Convention and Visitors Bureau expect the community to turn out.

If the track championships are a success, it could help Drake land a bid to host the first two rounds of the NCAA men's basketball tournament at Wells Fargo Arena. Drake recently submitted a bid, but it was turned down. The NCAA also turned down Iowa State's bid to host the NCAA wrestling championships at Wells Fargo Arena, but it successfully secured the bid to host the first two rounds of the women's NCAA Tournament.

Is anyone interested in attending the track and field Midwest regional at Drake Stadium in May 2007 or the 2008 championships? How about the women's basketball tournament hosted by Iowa State?
