    CWilliams: Your response regarding rivals

    I am not sure how many on this board go to cyclonereport.com, but comparing Iowa State's rivals site to Iowa's is embarrassing. I feel there is more up to date and current news on this site and you can't post on their site unless you are a paying member, unlike other rivals boards. I was wondering Chris Williams if you have any interest in getting into the rivals site?

    Also, I think they are doing a disservice to ISU athletics by not putting more content on their site, how would they go about improving the site?

    Other opinions are welcome!!! Thanks

    This basically is a rivals site without the recruiting rankings.

    CR is a grave yard because they killed the free board for about 4 years.

    Yeah, ISU has crappy Rivals/Scout, but our main free board (CF) blows most other schools away.

    Pretty sure that Chris is not going to comment on a competitor's site, as it wouldn't be professional to talk them down in any way.

    Since everything you need is right here on CF, not sure the need for this discussion.

    Re: CWilliams: Your response regarding rivals

    I enjoy both. Rivals has a different slant on recruiting stories that I like. The message board here is 1000 times better than over there though.

    To each their own.

    agreed. I think I would rather have one board where everyone goes rather than many boards with smaller number like Iowa has.

    Quite frankly 90% of the things that I like to talk about I'd rather do it here than anywhere else. HN takes care of the other 10%

    I'm pretty sure neither of these statements is accurate. I believe you can post again for free on the ISU Rivals football, basketball and student section boards. And there are other Rivals sites that are all subscription. Colorado comes to mind as a site where you specifically have to subscribe to that site to post.

    Re: CWilliams: Your response regarding rivals

    I'm unsure why people want to rip other Iowa State websites. The more the merrier. I happen to be a happy paying customer over at CR. Like previously mentioned, each does certain things well and each has it's drawbacks.

    Re: CWilliams: Your response regarding rivals

    What a clueless thread. In regards to actual Cyclone sports information, there is just as much on rivals as here. In regards to OT and non ISU related crap, this site blows CR away. So? I guess if you like to spend your life bickering on message boards with a bunch of other anonymous geeks, this site is perfect for you.

    To say that this site gets the same information is wrong. Unless you are talking about confidential information that gets posted here minutes after it is on CR. There are A LOT more informed people on CR with A LOT closer ties to the AD than on here (Williams excluded).

    And anyone who admits they spend time on hackeyenation is really showing their loyalty.
