    Need Help With Blog Idea

    While this has a political theme to it, it in no way includes anything to do with actual politics or to start a political discussion so hopefully they don't shut down this thread. Let me explain... with election day tomorrow I thought for fun I'd post a sports-related kind of blog and we here will in a sense "elect" current or former Cyclone players, coaches, administrators, etc. to some positions and give some reasons why. Some real some we can make up. So here's your chance to throw out some nominations and the ones that get the most responses I'll use in my blog tomorrow. I think this could be fun and some interesting response are sure to come from it!

    Note that you can make up your own category if you think of something creative and you can see that I also included a few things you might vote for in a local election.

    President
    Vice President
    Mayor (I'm guessing this will be Hoiberg obviously)
    Secretary of Defense
    Secretary of State
    Secretary of team spirit/morale (thinking Wild Bill from the women's game might be a good choice here)
    Sheriff
    Choose any from: Senate/House of Reps/City Council/Board of Supervisors/County Attorney/Supreme Court

    ***BTW, can someone change the title from new to need, not sure how I can do that. Thanks!

    Re: Need Help With Blog Idea

    Ace Bowen - Secretary of Defense. Anybody that leads the nation in tackles at ISU deserves that designation.

    And we should create a new cabinet position: Secretary of Offense. Of course, Seneca Wallace. No explanation necessary.


    ISU fans are the greatest in the world. All they ask for is hope and the belief that we have a chance to win every time we step on the field - Johnny Majors (paraphrased)

    Ya gotta have the horses, man - Johnny Orr.

    Some good ones so far. Keep them coming! And if you agree with any of them above just be sure to put them in your post as well. I'll tally up some of them and condense the list down with what we have later today probably.
