    Yes and no. This board has some of our best and most knowledgeable fans but unfortunately also some of our dumbest fans.

    It seems that plenty of sportswriters read CF, although they rarely mention it by name.

    If Hoiberg is reading this he should know that last week I messed around and got a triple double.

    Also, I'd like to nominate this thread as the most CycloneFanatic.com thread of the entire year. I know it is only January but I'm not sure how this can be topped.

    Probably has something to do with the excellent writing and also the site activity. Pretty easy for a sports writer to get a some idea what the fan base is thinking based on a few threads.

    I'm sure players and coaches read this forum, but definitely not to pick up recruiting info.

    If you didn't have to use your AK, I'd say it was a good day.

    If they had been reading last week they would have learned that Vanguard is a good place to invest their money.

    Knowledgeable fans? Hell, we are the smartest people on any given subject according to our posters.

    Any coach who reads this or any message board should be immediately fired.

    Are you kidding? They get most, if not all of their recruiting information here.

    I don't have a problem if they read the threads because I would bet many coaches/ADs find many of them entertaining. The point when they feel the need to post something is the point that they are going too far.
