    Cyclone Legacy

    Today there was a thread about Mateen Cleeves and someone asked about why Cyclone fans dislike him. That got me thinking, there are a lot of fans here that have very different knowledge and experience with Cyclone sports. Fans need to know that Iowa State was a Blarge away from a final four and likely championship!
    Thats why i think it would be cool to have a legacy/history section.
    There could be feature stories about some past great teams, players, and games.
    I have really enjoyed some of the Kagavi stories from the way back machine and think it could be done for more recent history as well.
    i know that is is a crazy busy time of the year for CW and team, but perhaps something for the slow summer.
    What do you think?

    I like this idea.

    I always click on the recruiting tab, but nothing is ever there, sigh.

    This could be cool. Sounds like it'd be right up Blum's alley. Maybe make a good offseason thing too.

    Re: Cyclone Legacy

    I support this, and would even be willing to submit some stories for consideration. I've been a somewhat insider in cyclone sports for almost 30 years now.

    I would suggest a Johnny Orr Dictionary, but I'm pretty sure every entry would be "***** - 1) Something Johnny said when he was happy. 2) a thing Johnny said when he was angry. 3) A thing Johnny said when he got a phone call at 2am. 4) Something Johnny said when he was hungry."
