Tis' the season.

Blum and I will be recording our first Summer Series Podcast next week. This year's series, we're excited to announce, will be brought to you by Sukup Manufacturing.

Anyways, what are some specific conversations you'd like to hear Blum and me have? These are always some of our most listened to pods of the year. Taking any and all suggestions now.

Thanks!

An off the record with Sage would always be interesting. Also one with Mike Zadick would entertaining.

Either of those fall through, maybe a video Pod with Scarlett Johanson. Just saying.

CW,

Love the Summer Podcasts, makes mowing go that much faster.

In Depth look at a particular season, and how things could have gone differently.

I think you did one a couple years ago on coaching searches, but those are always fascinating to hear the inside details.

Anything where time can allow a deeper dig into a story. For example, the Steve Loney interview is probably my favorite of all time, or when Paul Shirley was talking about Henrich and Collison.

Maybe a Tim Floyd or Eustachy interview? Jim Gibbons or Zadick for wrestling? I enjoy the podcasts but especially the ones with people we don't hear from often.

Edit: probably not summer series material more off the record

I know you have talked about doing it before, and I can't remember if you have done the coaching searches one.

Along that same line I would love one of all the juicy gossip and rumors around football and basketball you heard from legit sources that never came true or did come true and couldn't believe/didn't have a heads up on.

A shorter, pod doc version of that book you want to write (or just the book) about the near-death of the Big 12 in the 2010-2011 range would be interesting.

That or other conference shift stories -- maybe one about the birth of the Big 12?

Interview some old-timers about it?

AMA with Danny Mac?

Interview Georges, Naz, Monté, Matt, or Deonte about their years playing post-college?

1. Could do a Men's basketball "draft" of two teams starting from the beginning of the Hoiberg era to the present or the last 10 years ect.

2. List the 5 most practical ISU athletic facilities upgraded needed and then the 5 most pie in the sky "wants" for upgrades.

3. If you could reshape the landscape that is college football, how would you guys do it?

If you could build an Iowa State "the tournament" team across all eras, who would it be (assuming a 9 man team limit)

2) men’s hockey team
3) players only dorm

Etc....

Agree that the Steve Loney one was awesome

Hopes and fears for next round of media rights negotiations once the current GOR expires in seven years. Is ISU threatened by the prospects of a great realignment to Super Conferences? Or are there scenarios where we could be pleasantly surprised by an outcome related to media technology, demographics and other trends? Eight years ago this month, things looked pretty bad for us and yet here we are today with football still part of a P5 and heading into a season where we will be ranked in some pre-season polls.

What would have happened to ISU athletics - and our Big 12 brethren - if conference Armageddon would have actually happened? Not just landing spots but the programs themselves and the fan support.

CW had a similar thread last year asking for suggestions. I compiled a list of the previous Summer Series podcasts then, so adding to that list and the ones from last summer, these are the topics that have been discussed in the past (for reference):

Inside ISU Coaching Searches
Expectations for the next 5 years (that would be interesting to re-listen to)
Top Personalities in ISU History
Biggest What-Ifs in ISU History
Five Favorite Games
Iowa State's Mount Rushmore
The Rise & Fall of Paul Rhoads
From Lake of the Ozarks (w/CW's dad)

I posted this last year and will still push for it, but I would love to hear a podcast discussing the most hated opposing players/biggest villains in ISU history. Would kind of be the anti-Mount Rushmore of ISU, but would be a fun one to listen to.
