    Welcome Ian Smith to the CF team

    Fanatics --

    I am happy to announce today that I have hired a quality journalist named Ian Smith to start helping me out with content here at CycloneFanatic.com. Ian has been in the sports journalism field for years and is an Ames native. He went to media day on Wednesday, where he put together two awesome stories that you'll see here on the site shortly. Ian will also be helping me out with game day football this fall. We have some great plans for the winter as well. So please everyone, welcome Ian to CycloneFantaic.com!

    Re: Welcome Ian Smith to the CF team

    I graduated from high school with him. Cool to see him getting involved here, although I thought he was more of a Hawk fan? Maybe he got wise.

    If you were to give him a star rating what would it be?

    I heard that he is a 5 star recruit.
