    Cyclone fanatic the magazine?

    At B-Daltons last night and saw the hawkeye nation mag(or whatever the hell its called). Got me thinking we need a rival publication once again.

    Since Deace and co went belly up, (no pun intended ) i've wondered if Jeremy ever thought about putting the name of this site out there for this purpose?

    CF is easily the most recognizable clone related "Cyte" besides the official Iowa state site.

    Also Cyclone fanatic is a much better name than all those lame "insert team name- Nation". Hard to say how well it could go with the internet and all the content readily available online. While I didnt subscribe to the old Cyclone nation(?), any time I saw it at a gas station, or hy-vee I couldnt resist picking up a copy.

    The problem with those magazines is the info is months old by the time you get it. Magazines may have worked 10 years ago, but now we just read the articles on the web the next day.

    Re: Cyclone fanatic the magazine?

    To me, the only things that work in magazines are in depth articles, player profiles, and long term predictions. Statistics and results/scores are worthless.

    Getting news from a magazine is ancient, but getting insight is still valuable.

    Re: Cyclone fanatic the magazine?

    I greatly appreciate the faith in our product and the strength of our community, however, the magazines are only "doable" because of the way that the "networks" have dozens of sites driving down costs and helping with distribution, etc. Also, since we have a hard time committing to writing for the site, I can only imagine it would be even harder for a magazine with deadlines, etc.

    Again, I'm flattered by the suggestion but would have to politely shelve the idea


    Sometimes it is the people who no one imagines anything of who do the things that no one can imagine.
