    Smile What... no n00b love for this forum since June 16th? Let's change that right now!

    I'm shocked, I tell ya... SHOCKED that this forum's been deader than the Kansas vs Missouri rivalry over the past couple months. Y'all seriously need to change that up, fast!

    Hi, my name is Doug and I'm addicted to... oh, crap, this isn't an AA or NA meeting. So sorry about that!

    All joking side, I'm a *very* passionate Collegiate Football junkie, living in an Atlanta suburb. I blame Mike Rouse (ISUGoldenrule on Twitter; and now subsequently Chris Williams) for turning me onto Cyclone Fanatics. An SEC (Arkansas Razorbacks) and Sun Belt (Arkansas State, Georgia State) fan, of course, but I love the game and sport itself.

    I fancy myself as a Collegiate Football Historian, often researching game history by way of GridironHistory (to avoid spamming/pimping the site, I'm not linking to it in this post (it's a respect thing, since I'm a guest in someone else's home)).

    I'm also a budding Sports Talk Radio Media Personality, doing a once a week show with an awesome co-host, covering not only SEC and Sun Belt Conferences, but also showcasing lesser known schools and people/student athletes. I'm also the webmaster behind the largest fan site (official and unofficial) for the Arkansas Razorbacks (Hogville) as well as Arkansas largest High School Prep Sports site (FearlessFriday).

    EDIT Forgot to mention that I actually have a lot of family history tied to the State of Iowa. My Maternal Grandmother was born and raised there (we still have a *very* large farm somewhere), and my Great Grandfather immigrated and relocated to Iowa from what was then known as the USSR (Russia). And yes, even the Des Moines Register has profiled one of my Great Uncles (Grandfather's brother) at this link.

    Enough incoherent ramblings from me... if you've got any questions, give me a shoutout here or via Twitter (@BearlyDoug) and I'll do my best to not annoy ya.

    Mike (and Chris), thanks for the heads up about this here forum thingie!

    Welcome Doug! Hopefully you enjoy your time here, be careful not to step in the knee deep sarcasm/BS.

    Good luck with the new coaches down at Arkansas, hope you guys can dethrone Bama and LSU in the West.

    Just realized that I forgot to mention my direct tie-in/connection with the State of Iowa, so I just modified the post above.

    Used to sorting through the BS/sarcasm. When you Tech Admin a 25,000 member site with damn near 7 million posts, you gotta have a thick skin, haha! Thank you for the well wishes for this year's Hogs. Should be a rather exciting season.

    Also, congrats to Coach Rhoads for picking up Chris Klenakis. That's a HUGE get for you guys. His West Coast connections, in terms of recruiting, could help give you guys a very nice advantage within the Big 12 for the next few years, if you can keep him around. I know the allure of the West Coast is there, but he did tell me (via twitter) the other day that he's super excited to be part of the ISU FB staff. Again, great coach to have on your staff now.

    Sorry, the Steven RHODES (MTSU player that the NCAA almost screwed over) situation is still fresh on my mind. I knew that it was supposed to be "Rhoads". Fixed post. I'll go sit in the corner with my dunce hat on, though.

    Welcome to CF. I'll take you up on your offer to answer questions. What else can you say about Chris Klenakis? I read an article about him (Let's Welcome Chris Klenakis To Iowa State - Wide Right & Natty Lite) but I am interested in your take.

    Interested in hearing your take on the disgruntled Arkansas State fans who started ripping on ISU because we were invited to "their" bowl game.

    Took me a while to remember that the main forums page is the most recent posts throughout all of the forums. Initially, I was going to write some comment about how he must be blind if he thinks this forum is dead... then stopped myself and looked that he in fact did post in a relatively dead area of the site.
