    Relevant?

    As a source of sports information regarding ISU, I find this web site becoming more and more irrelevant. Maybe that is the generation gap showing up. Or to be more accurate, 2 generations.Im guessing that to more than half the posters here, I'm older than your Gramdpa.

    I guess I don't come here for real sports information. I come here for some chatter, a laugh, some entertainment, etc. Similar to how I approach listening to sports talk radio.

    There are some peak times for superb info on this site. It has become my main source for information regarding recruits, stats, etc. Is there some misc junk? sure, but thats fun to do when there is a lull in the ISU feed. Sometimes its just fun to gab and meet new people. I have come to know quite a few people on this site and its been great. I hope to meet many more of you in the coming years and tailgates.

    I haven't been here that long, but I was figuring that it was merely the gap between seasons--and a disappointing basketball team. Of course, "disappointing" could well be straightened out tonight.

    Re: Relevant?

    IMO, the age thing scores you zero points. It's a tired card played again and again.

    However, there is a lot of "fluff" around here these days. I'd venture to guess if our MBB team wasn't fighting to stay out of last place in the Big 12 - it wouldn't be that way. But it's easy to forget all the "inside information" that shows up here before any other online or other media source.

    One nice "feature" of CF is the very diverse membership. It not only allows a wide variety of sports opinions - but gives members a place to obtain info and discuss life. Learn about technology, get personal reviews on products/services and much more! Sometimes these things get a bit sideways and go on too long - but generally - I'd say this is yet another "selling point" of Cyclone Fanatic.

    Re: Relevant?

    I think that the site diversifies with more posters - as there are more posters, there are more off-topic posts. Since we're getting to the end of a season where a lot of people are disappointed, as well, the off-topic posts are probably going to increase in number, since the "main sports" won't have a ton of activity going on. We purposely steer clear of recruiting scoops, so that info isn't the primary concern.

    Edit: Well, I guess ISUFan and I agree.

    And that is why I love CF, my ulcers cannot handle recruiting updates.

    And don't forget, the Big 12 and NCAA tournaments. Some very fun developments on the way for that.

    Hey, just be proud you can use that fancy electric typewriter thing attached to a TV that you can't change channels on.

    Just kidding.


    Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that. ~ George Carlin

    There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life:
    The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves Orcs. ~ John Rogers
