    How about letting SvrWxCy put together a bi-weekly recruiting update for men's basketball on the main page. He has done an excellent job with the Recruit Lists website and updates on facebook and twitter updates and has surely earned credibility from all men's basketball fans on the site. The thread has top views in the forums. It would help to keep threads on the same subject from popping up all over and create more material in the off season. Not sure he would be interested, just my thoughtd.

    not a fan of the Friday football game, because it is tough to get out of the office in time to make it over to Ames for the game. i had to miss the okie state game because of meetings.

    Agreed, but you have to assume it gets us a tier 1 tv slot. Tradeoffs.

    I would imagine it's less of an issue for the after Thanksgiving Friday, because lots of people take that off. That being said, you'll also lose some folks (potentially including myself) to family travel obligations.

    Good stuff. However, the get in the hole guy is anything but "pretty darn funny". It was a good move for the first guy that said it 20 years ago. Not so much now.

    I believe the wbb recruit is Jordan Jensen, not Jansen.

    Agreed. "Get in the hole" guy needs to go away, and "Yabba dabba doo" guy should have never been conceived.

    the USA chants on the first tee when GMAC and Furyk were teeing off were annoying - save those for the Ryder Cup.

    Unfortunate though the world watching ISU knock off OSU and WVU as the only game Friday in consecutive years is worth the sacrifice.
