    Wrote a new column this week on my time in Norman two years ago and how old tweets can actually be a good thing. https://cyclonefanatic.com/2019/11/blum-24-hours-in-norman/

    Blum: Hello Mizzou, old foe

    Wrote some stuff this morning about welcoming our old Mizzou pals back to Hilton. And how much I couldn't stand Norm Stewart's team. I miss hating those guys. https://cyclonefanatic.com/2018/11/blum-hello-mizzou-old-foe/

    Blum: Four's a Crowd

    Got to thinking about an interesting parallel between this group of Cyclones and Tim Floyd's first group in 94-95, including the big 3 of Hoiberg, Meyer and Julo (the original Big Silky.) Enjoyed writing this one. https://cyclonefanatic.com/2018/02/blum-fours-a-crowd/

    BLUM: Cyclone Legends on the Mic

    One of my favorite topics I've written about. Hopefully we never forget the impact Pete Taylor had on Iowa State and the way Walters has taken the torch and ran with it. Walters and Heft are genuinely two of the greatest guys around and we are lucky to have them...

    Iowa High School TV Dispute

    Pretty good summary here by the Des Moines Register: http://www.desmoinesregister.com/story/sports/high-school/2017/02/12/scrambled-signal-tv-package-good-iowa-preps/97570318/ I found it crazy that the IHSAA makes roughly $7 million per year and its CEO makes around 200k, yet they only make...

    Tonight's Kansas-Iowa State Officials

    I know you're all dying to know. The officiating crew tonight: Doug Sirmons, Joe DeRosa, Bert Smith. Sirmons is one of my faves and has worked multiple Final Fours. DeRosa is a solid official that worked the NCAA Title game in 2014. I'm not high on Smith, he was a part of the KU fiasco in Hilton...

    Best game ever by Cyclone PG?

    Just off the top of my head, Monte's 30 points, 5 rebounds, 5 assists, 4 steals and zero turnovers on 10-16 from floor and 4-5 from 3 is the best line I've seen from a Cyclone PG. Some other contenders: Tinsley vs UCLA in Sweet 16, 2000. Tinsley triple double vs Mizzou in 2000. Stinson @ KU...

    WTB: 2 tix Thursday Big 12 (Session 2 and 3)

    Hi all, I'm looking to take my dad down to the Big 12 for Thursday's sessions and if anyone had 2 they'd like to sell, I'd be interested. I haven't been there as a "fan" in years, so hoping to find 2 to watch the games with a beer. Would potentially be interested in all-session tickets as well...
