    Set it just a hair above the affordability level for drive through workers? Or would that take out too broad a swath of Hawk fans?

    I thought HN went extinct years ago after Jon went ban-hammer crazy

    How stupid. "For just $3.99/month you can make our forums a little less awful so they're actually usable!"
    Uh, what? Isn't that how every forum operates? Moderators to deal with bad posts or posters, what a strange idea.

    This is great. I can even find out breaking news about HawkeyeNation on this site. I might have to actually check out that forum again.

    I don't think it's very active anymore. Just looking now they have like 40 members online compared to CF's 187.

    Did anybody else get the "Why Is My Penis Curved" ad when they went to Hawkeye Nation? Or is that just due to my search history.

    In all honestly, I'd gladly give Chris 20 bucks for a nice hawkeye-troll free board here. :)

    It doesn't make sense to make a paid-to-read section when I could just pay to read HawkeyeReport which is way more active if I was a hawkeye fan. Also the inside information is likely better there due to the people who run the site are probably living in Iowa (not sure on that).

    Man, this is basically the equivalent of throwing a homeowners association fee at residents of a trailer park.

    Their forums are pretty dead but a few analytical sites I've checked still show them hovering around 350k hits a month. That's still pretty quality advertising $.

    First they want to run from a football game against ISU, then they run from conversations with ISU.

    Well, at least they're consistent, I guess.

    I thought every person on HN was a troll but I haven't looked there in a while.

    I don't like pay forums and hope not to see that here.
