    In my opinion, it is worse. It is still better than the old cstv cyclones.com though. Who came up with the idea that shoving more crap onto a page makes it look better? It gets really annoying. Also, it's not showing up properly in Firefox.

    CompCy...aren't we the grumpy one today. I think it continues to improve and is way ahead of where it has been. With todays changes it begins to become a site that coaches would be proud to have potential recruits check out.

    I agree. ISU has finally entered the modern day with it's overhauled website.

    Lots of content, constantly updated and eye-catching graphics.

    It was my understanding that even though they changed it recently that it was still a work in progress. I wonder if this is the final product or if there will be more improvements to come?

    It took forever to load on my Comcast broadband when other sites don't. Some graphics crashed and failed to show. You need to scroll to the right to see the whole screen. The graphics that did show are nice and the site is an improvement over the old, lame site. They still have a lot of work to do to make it a great site.

    It's not that I'm grumpy, I just don't agree with what the site designers decided to do. I do agree that the website is getting better from where it was at with the cstv site. I don't have a problems with the graphics they are using. The graphics are very well done. The graphics are a huge improvement from what they were on the previous "new" cyclones.com. I work with creating user-interfaces for consumer products every day, and it can be very difficult, but a lot of people seem to have this misconception that "more on the screen" = "better".

    I was pretty happy with the last revision of the website, but this one does appear to be slower to load, even on high-speed internet access from my dorm. This revision feels like a bit of a step back from what they had before.


    Go Sssssssssyclones!

    I liked the original new design as well. It was a much cleaner look.

    That's your fault, not theirs. You have your monitor's resolution set too small to display the whole thing. Bring it up to at least 1024x768 (preferably 1280x1024) and you'll be fine. If your monitor doesn't support that high of a resolution, well... frankly I'm amazed that it even still operates at all.

    I know your response will be, "But other sites display just fine on my dark ages resolution!" Lots of sites these days are written using code that allows the page to be malleable and adjust to fit your individual resolution. These sites are primarily comparitively simpler places, such as news sites. The Cyclones web site is using a lot of banners and pictures and interactive doodads, all of which have a fixed width, unlike text. If a sentence is too long to display, a computer can just shove the last few words down onto a new line. You can't do that with pictures and Java stuff.

    Just FYI; hope that helps.

    I really like the little videos they've added. (Just can't get them to work on Safari - gotta use Firefox.)

    I can't get them to work on Firefox. I need some video player plugin, but it won't tell me what kind. Anybody know?

    I watched the FSU game from 2002 and that last run by Seneca still is just amazing. If they have different games on there, what a tremendous resource that would be. I love the new site.
