    Excellent Write up!
    Last sentence says it all. We will turn a few heads this year, our record may not show for it. but the next 2 years we will be pretty salty.

    Thank you Mr. Blum!! Great article!!

    I love the line about Harry Caray. That guy could butcher the simplest of names.

    Enjoyed the article - I agree with many of his thoughts.

    After listening to Coach Rhoads Saturday and again last night, he has expectations for this year's team that I admire. I don't think he is afraid of the schedule. He (and his staff and the team) are going to embrace our schedule as a challenge.

    Re: Blum: Substance over flash

    Brent that is a articulate and informative article. Great Job.

    Brent, in all your success, you are still a guy that fans can just walk up to and have a conversation. Makes us proud to be Cyclones. That says a lot about Cyclone Nation. Thanks!

    Re: Blum: Substance over flash

    Good article, but for the sake of accuracy, Burris didn't start the Mizzou game last year. He still played and it may have been senior day related so he should still be considered a full year returning starter.

    I heard that CPR's speech was goosebump worthy.

    Good call...should have clarified that a bit more.

    Thanks for the comments and for reading all! Just 9 more days...should be a great fall.

    Re: Blum: Substance over flash

    Makes me suspicious when it takes that many words to try to convince me that everything is going to be ok.
