    Suggestion for press releases

    Precede the press release topics with a prefix for sport (i.e. FB, MBB, WBB, WGOLF, WGYM, WVB, etc.). Sometimes the thread title is obvious as to which sport the post is about, but sometimes the titles are quite generic and could apply to several sports.

    For example, the current thread Cyclones Jump To No. 16 In The Nation could apply to wrestling, WGYM, or WBB since those teams are currently ranked in that area. Who knew it would be women's golf?

    Re: Suggestion for press releases

    Great idea, the issue would be that the releases are automatic. Not sure it can be done.


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    Thanks!

    Actually kind of cool that ISU has four teams simultaneously ranked in the top 25.

    Re: Suggestion for press releases

    I agree Chad. While the idea is great, I don't have a clue how we could possibly do that. I'll check but say it is a long shot.

    Re: Suggestion for press releases

    Where do the press releases come from? On cyclones.com, the press releases on the front page have a prefix. The ones here look pretty much the same as the ones on cyclones.com.

    Re: Suggestion for press releases

    Is there anyway to "reply" to these press releases (currently they are locked)? I don't really want to start a thread about Womens golf, but to be able to comment on the fact they are ranked #1 in the big 12 is kind cool?
