Williams/Arnaud Podcast: An Introduction

By Chris Williams, Publisher

We’ve got a special treat for you all here today at Please welcome former Cyclone quarterback Austen Arnaud to the CF team.

From now until the 2011 Iowa State football season kicks off, Arnaud and I will post a weekly podcast where we break down the 2011 Cyclones, the team’s 2011 opponents and much more.

In addition to that, Arnaud will be hosting chats on CF where you can ask him questions and just talk with one of the best quarterbacks in Iowa State history.

Click below to listen to our first edition podcast where we break down Iowa State’s quarterback competition in 2011. I do apologize as we had some equipment problems during yesterday’s recording session and lost about 30 minutes worth of work. We did however manage to safe the bulk of our Iowa State conversation, so please forgive the abrupt ending. In future installments, Arnaud and I will discuss other topics like the NFL, college football in general, off-topic stuff and more. Enjoy!
