    Mission Critical: The search for "Tuff Tiger" fan Roger Sprague

    Some may know him, others may have no clue who this man is. Others may lay awake at night dreaming - wondering - praying, that Mr. Sprague may rejoin us on the interwebs again.

    For those unaware, Roger first came to us back in 2007, at the height of Missouri football. The "Tough as Rain Tigers" as he eloquently called them were quite the football unit. And Roger was oh so proud of them.

    He wanted to share his joy and love of the Tigers, his glendower banner and his simples. Some of us showed him love, others chastised him with crude and unnecessary comments. It's unknown whether the love or hate is what scared him away from CycloneFanatic.com. But his one and only post shall always be remembered.

    Our mission as we approach "Tuff Tiger" week is to find Mr. Roger Sprague and bring him back. How is he doing? What are his thoughts after Mizzu finally defeated the great Oklahoma Sooners? And then the fall off losing 2 straight to NU and Tech? Is his glendower banner still proudly flowing in the wind?

    It is now that I ask, no, beg you - to help me find this man. For without him, it's just another game. With him, it's a game with the sweet nectar of Roger Sprague's wisdom sprinkled on top.

    This is a tough as rain mission. I fear that there maybe some casualties as a result. But we need to find him and embrace this unique legend.

    The Man. The Myth. The Legend.

    A billion credits and a book of coupons to the first man to bring in Mr. Roger Sprague..... Dead or alive!

    He did always want a rabbit with a pancake hat as his simple, for which CF could never accommodate. I believe that is why he left with no return.
