    New to the site

    Hey guys, I got frustrated when Paul shut down the rivals board and I just heard about this site yesterday. So here are my thoughts on the upcoming football season:

    Our offense should be able to hold it's own. Obviously QB and WRs shouldn't be a problem. The main question marks then are RB and O-line. With some Juco's and our previous guys with another year of experience, our offensive line can't be any worse that it was last year. At RB, I really hope that J.J. Bass can be the starter because I just don't think Scales can cut it by himself. I'm sure they'll both get plenty of playing time and maybe we'll have ourselves a dynamic two back system.

    I'm really not too worried about our defense either. Tyrone McKenzie transferring sucked big time, but we should be able to mix and match and come up with a good set of starters out of Bowen, Carper, Smith, Garrin, and Banks. Secondary is going to be young, but I think Singleton and Smith (Mac was very high on him before he got hurt) can be studs. Is McDowell still suspended from the team, or did he get kicked off?? The D-line is probably the biggest question mark on this side of the ball. We have Taylor back and hopefully Parker can keep the level of play he had for the first few games last year going all season long this time. At DT we might have to hope for a JUCO to step up for us again.

    All in all I'm very excited for this year. I think the coaching change came at the perfect time because I wouldn't be this excited if we had the same old same old coming into this season. The only thing that worries me is that on both sides of the ball, our lines are the biggest question marks and once again, we have a tough schedule but at least the big ones (Texas & Oklahoma) are at home this year.

    Once again, I look forward to discussing Cyclone sports with you guys and hearing what you think of my analysis and reading your own thoughts on the upcoming year.

    Is no one going to tell him about how he needs to eat a goldfish to keep posting after the first month?

    Welcome aboard, it's hard to imagine a Cyclone fan not knowing abot this site but wecome aboard anyway. I do hope everyone continues to support the other sites because they do a lot of good in their reporting and research on recruiting.

    I think you are right on about not being excited if we still had Mac as the coach. We are all Cyclone fans and would buy the tickets out of loyalty and not because we bought into Macs hype one more time. I think we have one hell of a good fan base, outside of the 9-3 season of 01 what have we had to get excited about and yet for 3 decades we can always count on at least 30,000 in the worst of times. That is a fantastic base and can easily be doubled in the good times. Heres to hoping for the good times to finally arrive under Chizik.

    You've found a great place. I, too, (formerly CyzMatters) was extremely frustrated when PC made changes to rival and then acted smug about it. I've been hanging out here for a number of months. Jeremy's done a great job with this site and deserves a large round of applause!

    I think you're gonna like it here

    I've converted also. It's pretty sad when the cheapest site has the best design(cf).

    I also want to add my welcome and offer props to the board. This has been a Godsend for discussing Cyclone Athletics and more and is free. Although it is probably a good idea to add our support as we can.
