    Curious...how many "news" people actually follow CF?

    Ok, maybe I'm just a curious person, but wondering what "news" people follow CF for Cyclone info and if they are willing to admit it in this thread. I'm thinking bloggers/sports casters/radio personalities/etc.

    Not that I mind it, but is this norm in the evolution of today's news world?

    The Rag follows. Not sure of the person's user name (if they have one).

    I think you'd have to be a bit silly not to pay some attention to what was going on at the major boards, and what people are talking about.

    I know for a fact that a large number of "news" people read CF daily.

    Radio personalities mention threads and posters by name. They definitely follow. Jon Miller, Ken Miller, and Matt Perrault all have accounts here.

    To better questions is which ones don't? They all do. Murphy, Keeler, etc. Everyone.

    ...and maybe even better yet, what "news" media people follow CF, that actually support Cyclone athletics? Probably a much smaller no.

    Re: Curious...how many "news" people actually follow CF?

    I've always been amazed at the number of posters who seem to spend huge amounts of time on the boards, or researching info they post. Always assumed that many of them were in media of some sort and were just doing their normal jobs. Maybe someone who does polls could set one up to do an "occupational survey." Would be interesting.

    I met one of them once, mentioned CF, and he actually remembered me from the board.

    It seems that Coutlar is the only one that specifically says he doesn't. Probably best as there's usually not a lot of positive Coutlar discussion on here.

    I know of at least one "weather news" person who does. Granted not a lot of sports going on in the weather world.
