    Site Idea: Chalk Talk

    Chris,

    I'm sure your weekly schedule is already full during football season, but I am wondering if you/ CF (and when I say you/ CF, I mean Arnaud) could do a weekly "chalk talk" video like the one linked below. It could be on a specific scheme of an upcoming opponent offense or defense, or on a scheme that ISU will be running against a particular offense/ defense. Just a thought.

    instead of 'chalk talk' that is what it's called for oregon football, how about calling it 'X's and O's' or 'Cyclone Talk'...be creative and original - but hey, I like the idea a lot!

    Oregon didn't coin the phrase chalk talk. I say go for it. I like the idea, too.

    Another thing this board needs is a drop down link menu to the best bulletin boards of our conference mates, and a request that the favor be returned. Without being part of a bulletin board network, like Rivals, it is hard to find this site if you don't know where to look.

    Re: Site Idea: Chalk Talk

    Yeah, I loved the articles from Bruns. I'm sure Arnaud could do the exact same thing, possibly with a focus on the backs as opposed to the lines.

    Re: Site Idea: Chalk Talk

    You guys will be happy to know that Austen is coming over today to record something like this. We'll give it a shot!

    As for Ben, in order to have contributors like that on the site, we obviously have to pay them. We had just brought on a second full-time employee and have to pay bills. Ben did great work but we just couldn't swing it this year. Hopefully we can bring that feature back in the future.

    I say add it to the 'Talkin' with Tron' segment. I'm sure he'd have a ton to say...LOL

    J/K of course...would love to hear what AA has to say.
