    Fanatics -

    To honor Iowa State's legendary former head basketball coach Johnny Orr, we will be shutting down our forums for one hour of silence from 5 to 6 tonight leading up to the final non-conference game of the 2013 season.

    At 6, we will open the shop back up and do exactly what Coach Orr would want, be passionate about Iowa State basketball.

    I wonder how many times I'll check for updates tonight only to remember: oh, yeah...

    Love the idea. As classy as internet gets.

    Even better than this, Chris, would be to just change the front page of CyFan to be a memorial page to Johnny Orr over the same time period. Would be seen by everyone then and not just us forum rats.

    Love the idea though.

    No. This is unprecedented. It takes a real legend to shut us down.

    The only down-time we've had on CF before is for server upgrades/migrations/etc.
