    I am really pumped up to announce that Ben Bruns will be writing weekly columns here on CycloneFanatic.com during the 2010 Iowa State football season.

    I mean this when I write that Ben is one of the most knowledgable football minds I have ever talked to and our entire CF team is extremely happy that he has agreed to come on board.

    Welcome Ben!

    I don't know how you did it but it's a winner. I've always enjoyed Ben's take on ISU football. Even though he was clearly a homer, he still was knowledgeable and insightful for me. I'm very glad to read his comments.

    FABULOUS!!!!!!

    I have gone to his site several times this summer to look for a new blog, but to no avail. This is a welcome addition to CF.
    He is one smart dude, AND he tells it like it is.
    I know I will enjoy the knowledge and emotion he will bring.
    WELCOME BEN.

    GO CYCLONES :yes:

    Ben definitely bleeds cardinal and gold, but he is also quite frank about things that are a problem with the FB team, and is not afraid to speak his mind.

    Awesome, his insight during broadcasts is always good. I've thought for the last couple of years it was time for him to take the color commentary spot from Eric. Great get Chris.

    Outstanding !

    Just make sure Bruns doesn't puke all over his keyboard (a few years ago Bruns on his sideline report said he just puked all over his shoes. I believe we had just missed an easy field goal at the time)...

    I second this motion. A color analyst who actually played college football would be appreciated.
    Anyway, yes, Bruns' commentary is a great addition to CF.

    Good stuff CW! Love Ben. Didn't he conduct the famous halftime interview with Mac, when Mac said Iowa was one of the best second half team's in America? That was classic.
