    cyclones.com website--anyone have access

    It just bothers me that they have a rankings area on the front page--but don't list our rankings! Wrestling squad ranked 3, gymastics ranked 6--and that's not mentioning all the individual rankings (9 of our 10 wrestlers are individually nationally ranked--and I'm sure several gymnasts). I don't know if there are other rankings or not . . .

    I did send them a message over a month ago and never got a response.

    Re: cyclones.com website--anyone have access

    I got a response:

    Ted:
    Thanks for taking the time to write us. My name is Tyler Rutherford and
    I am the Web Services Coordinator in the Athletics Dept. at ISU. Jamie
    Pollard notified me of your concern over our "Rankings" tab on the
    homepage of cyclones.com and I wanted to shed some light on the
    situation.
    When we originally launched the new site in August, we had plans to have
    a Rankings tab that you see now, that would be continuously updated
    through the fall and spring seasons. However, when we got into the
    rigors of our sports schedule, the Rankings tab did not function like it
    should. Therefore, we have decided to not use it.
    In addition, we currently have a new redesign for cyclones.com on the
    docket and we expect the new site to launch in a month or two. Many XOS
    clients (like ISU) are going away from the Rankings tab due to it's
    complexities, functionability and the inability to spend the time to
    consistently maintain it.
    We considered removing the Rankings tab on the current site, but it
    threw off the look and feel of what we currently have. Our feelings that
    were if we had a redesign on the table in the next month or so, our time
    should and will be spend making the current site we have better, thus
    adding and eliminating things that don't function correctly.
    We all understand we have some great ranked programs out there that
    deserved to be recognized. They currently are on their respective pages
    and will be on the new site design as well.
    Hope I have shed some light on this issue. Thanks for taking the time to
    write us.

    Question Cyclones.com ranking list

    Anyone else notice on the new (well not so new now) cyclones.com website half-way down the page under rankings it reads "no standings found".

    Not sure if I'm nit-picking (b/c I like the new setup) or if this has been discussed in the past, but am I the only one bothered by this? It seems like there of all places we should be recoginizing our achievements. #2 Wrestling ranking is kinda something you want to shout to the world about.....Or maybe it's just for certain sports...

    Re: Cyclones.com ranking list

    I think it was discussed in this thread
    http://www.cyclonefanatic.com/forum/...ead.php?t=5829

    Something to do with they were hard to maintain and just there to maintain the look of the site.

    Re: Cyclones.com ranking list

    Thanks. I missed that discussion and was wondering if it had been addressed...
