    CycloneFanatic Press Releases

    As a suggestion, I'd like to see the headline for the Cyclone Fanatic Press Release threads include what sport it is referencing. Sometime it is difficult to determine what sport is being discussed without clicking the "More..."

    So, for example of the most recent release, instead of the headline of "Cyclones to Play on ESPNU, FSN" it could be "Volleyball: Cyclones to Play on ESPNU, FSN" I think that simple change would make the Press Release threads much more helpful.

    I suggested this once before. The answer at that time was that these posting are automated and somehow picked up from ISU, and the sport is not included in the press release "metadata", thus there is no way to put the sport in the headline.

    makes sense if the blog/news part is an extension of vBulletin

    This is correct. It's an RSS feed. We can't control it.
