    2009 CF New Year's Wishlist

    With the new year upon us, I think it would be a great time for all of us to post our Cyclone Fanatic Wishlist for 2009.

    Not surprisingly, I'll start...

    1) No posts about logo changes.

    2) Continued excellent "merging" work from our Mods.

    3) A serious reduction in Hawkeye-related threads.

    The infatuation by some is annoying, especially to those of us out-of-state'ers who really NEVER hear about the Hawks except for those obsessed ISU fans on this board. Yes, I realize I don't have to live/work with them on a daily basis, but come on...

    4) The new/recent Social Group changes need to be rolled back. I'll spare everyone the details here, but those who know, know.

    5) Continued overall excellence by the board as a whole as the best "free" board on the Interwebs. Yes, some growing pains have set in, but I challenge anyone to find a better free board. Great job, everyone.

    That's it for now. Enough to get the ball rolling, anyway...

    Here's to a great Cyclone 2009, and a safe, healthy, prosperous year for everyone.

    6) People to stop trying to squash the free flow of ideas - within reason.

    oops - that may be in conflict with #1

    Look - I know you Chizik lovers LOVE the Chizik Logo and colors. I'm not against you. I like the Chizik football helmets and the uniforms in football. They do look good.

    Unveiled in our major revenue sport - the Chizik logo is etched upon us. We'll forever remember our coach Chizik's stamp upon our athletics - though the logo and color fiasco probably didn't have anything to do with him at all.

    But it's the "Chizik Logo" whether we like it or not.

    Re: 2009 CF New Year's Wishlist

    I would prefer to not see the following:

    1. Fire Coach X threads

    2. "Not Big 12 caliber" comments regarding our players, coaches or recruits


    I hope some of the new posters who joined in the discussion about the coaching search stay on board.

    I don't think so, Tim.

    I'd say it's more of a JP logo.

    Many good points. But the one I hope for most is...

    More perspective

    A set of training wheels for new posters - including a thorough lesson on the "search" function

    No more posting new threads just because you feel your ideas are more important than everyone else's in the relevant thread (THANK YOU mods for merging these)

    Actually, you are the only one calling it the Chizik logo. Pollard was behind the logo switch, not Chizik.

    With less reasons to melt down already taken, I'll say I wish to never see Steve Deace's name or face anywhere. Ever.

    I would like to see less negativity on CF.

    Hope none of you work for a suicide hot-line.
