    Thanks for going out on a limb

    Jeremy, I know you are going to get hammered by some if you are wrong on the Harbaugh thing, but to be honest, I came to this site because I felt like this was the place to get some inside information on the Clones. Sometimes you will be wrong, but sometimes you will be right. That'll keep most coming back for more.

    Thank you very much. It's not easy going out on a limb like that but if I'm wrong, I'll admit it. I can only go by what sources tell me and the day I can't trust them is the day I have no information to share. If I'm wrong on this story, I won't be the only one:)

    Re: Thanks for going out on a limb

    I agree. Any inside information or well-sourced speculation on what is happening at any point in time on major events like these is appreciated by many of us fans.

    There are going to be a vocal few who can make your life heck at times. Just try not to let them get you down, and remember that there are many Cyclone fans out here that appreciate your efforts. Please keep CF going!

    Don't forget me Jeremy!
    I'll certainly stand beside you in this. Heck, I thought I was the ring-leader on the "Jim Harbaugh saga" ...Lol. You know I can't talk to much (here) but today my connections pretty much confirmed your post! God Bless you my friend! We're doing the best we can!

    Re: Thanks for going out on a limb

    I agree, it's easy to never go out on a limb and give your opinion on anything and not take the risk of being "wrong". I respect the people that do take that chance and I think most members on this board appreciate that.

    Also I hope you are right in your prediction! Harbaugh would be excellent IMO.

    Re: Thanks for going out on a limb

    To follow up the closed Harbaugh thread, things are moving very rapidly and I think an announcement could come as soon as this weekend if things keep going smoothly, knock on wood.

    Re: Thanks for going out on a limb

    Jeremy, thanks for your site. I wouldnt come anywhere else to get up to date on Cyclone news. If it wasnt for your site I wouldnt get my share of debating Cyclone Athletics. Keep up the good work and you know who the real Cyclone fans are.

    Re: Thanks for going out on a limb

    I like the site and am currently a memeber at both paying sites. I have been testing for a few months and was going to drop one or both, but there is too much going on right now. Evenutally I will probably drop premium.

    This site rocks. Keep up the good work Jeremy.

    I think the track record shows that you have been right more than wrong. Lucca, Diante, Brackins, McD, McC,...etc

    Re: Thanks for going out on a limb

    Jeremy,
    ...even if JP goes another direction with another coach, I hardly see where it could be your fault. We're in debt to you for your research & legwork trying to keep the "real" Cyclone nation in the loop ahead of the rest.

    Thanks Jeremy!! Keep up the good work and don't let a few Knuckleheads spoil it for the rest of us. IMO this is the best sight for Cyclone info. (especially MBB)

    Thanks again

    Jeremy, I have been following your site off and on since it started, but am starting to question your sources. You were reporting that Brewster was likely the next coach, then were sure it was Harbaugh, and now you think it is Kelly. In your Harbaugh story, you claimed to have sources on the Harbaugh side. I just find it difficult to believe that you have Harbaugh sources when you are just running a "fan site". So far, most of your coaching announcement have been making predictions that the front runner is going to get the job. After Harbaugh, Norvell, and Brewster all are reported to be out of the coaching search, anybody could guess that a different coach must be close to getting the job. Otherwise, why would ISU tell Norvell and Harbaugh they were no longer in consideration if they didn't have a man lined up. Of course, others were reporting that Kelly was going to get a second interview. Then you report that he is negotiations to finalize the job. Seems like an easy jump to make and hope it comes through. Just like Brewster and Harbaugh. Right now, I just can't trust anything you "report" as being solid information. I know in the beginning you had some items you reported before any other sites were even speculating (such as the Alex Thompson transfer), but I cannot remember the last time you reported anything from your sources that were not being mentioned or reported somewhere else. It seems like you are just throughing stuff out there and hoping it sticks.

    Just a couple of my thoughts.
