Coming this summer…

This should be fun. 

Today, we introduce the "Summer Series of Podcasts at Cyclone Fanatic." Thanks to our friends at Buffalo Wild Wings in Ames and Ankeny, Brent Blum and I will record six special edition podcasts from now until August.

The topics are designed to entertain you, the diehard Cyclone Fanatic. 

Here they are:

1. Top "what if" scenarios 

2. Most despised opponents (teams, players, coaches)

3. Top games in the Williams/Blum era (2000 and beyond) 

4. Top players and personalities in Iowa State history 

5. Untold stories from Iowa State coaching searches 

6. The next five years in Iowa State athletics. Predictions. What should our expectations realistically be?
