    Doing something like: The Anatomy of a Successful Tailgate would be cool.

    Can you conduct a series of player/coach interviews? Would love to hear from Rudy Wade concerning summer conditioning. I could listen to Pollard, Walters, & Heft all day. Or bring in a few members of the women's basketball & volleyball teams. Ask them about "Wild Bill" Fennelly stories, what conference foes they love to hate, or favorite Bachelorette seasons.

    Pete Taylor and the birth of ISU fandom...

    If you are 40+ it is where and the only place to get isu b-ball and fball..

    The call- Marv Seiler
    The run- Seneca Wallace
    Barry Stevens game winning shot vs Mizzou
    2001 comeback vs Iowa
    ISU first bowl game and win since forever

    For 30 years one voice carried the soul of ISU Athletics.

    Funny story about the Marv Seiler run. I was a young kid playing a pick up fball game in a grass lot with 5-6 neighborhood friends..We had the ISU/ Neb game on a boom box sitting on a picnic table just loud enough that if something was happening you could hear Taylor voice calling you to the boom box. Our QB was throwing a ball deep into the endzone and as it as caught for a TD we heard Taylor’s voice explode on the run by Seiler...6 kids went running to the boom box as Seiler was running down the sidelines...We all gathered around the picnic table listening to Taylor call the TD and put isu on top for good. I can still hear Pete’s voice on that call and it’s a day I and my friends won’t ever forget..It was a different era and way of following ISU athletics... That day cyclone fans were born and it was because of “ The Voice”.

    Do a feature on the 2005 football season. For the following reasons --

    -- It is one of the ultimate what if scenarios in Iowa State football history considering the quality of that defense and some of the offensive talent and how many close games it lost.

    -- It was our chance to really break through nationally, like Mizzou and Kansas did a few seasons later, feasting on the weakness of the Big 12 North to launch ourselves.

    -- I was a freshman on campus that season, and barely knew what was going on around me, and I think CW/Blum were juniors... wrap the thing in gooey nostalgia for warm fall days, the green grass of campus, and being young and innocent together.

    -- You get to talk about 23-3 and the Tornado Game again. That is enough on its own. It was a cool season for its ups-and-downs and incredible stories just on their merits.

    -- We get to imagine if we would have done better than 70-3 like Colorado did against Texas and having the honor of Vince Young destroying us up and down the field.

    Heft would be a great one!

    I think people have tried before and she wasn’t interested but I am always intrigued by the admin assistant for basketball. She’s been around since Johnny and it seems like she would know everything.

    Football & basketball recruiting during the last 15 years. Which high profile recruits almost signed, who visited but didn't sign, and how could their commitment have changed the team.

    1a) What really happened with Eljin Cook and Richard Armandi recruitment's. Both signed but neither ended up at ISU. In Armandi's case - his scholarship was pulled late. The real reason why.

    2a) The Wesley Johnson situation. What really happened.

    3a) How did Bryce Dejean-Jones affect that 2014-15 team? Did he really throw a chair at halftime of the UAB game in the NCAA tournament? Was that the downfall of Hoiberg's 1st tenure in college in that he couldn't take the recruiting any longer after that detraction?

    There are always lots of suggestions for bad things—-what would have happened, etc. those are probably more interesting, but are depressing.

    How about the inside story on good things?

    1. The Oklahoma football game. When did insiders really start to hear Park was gone? Did the coaches really think Kyle was any good?

    2. The turnaround in Montes senior year. How did it happen?

    3. How did the team regroup and beat NC after Georges broke his foot?

    You should do a weekly annoying mystery poster feature, where you ridicule what they posted the week before, we all put in our guesses as to who it was, and once we all figure it out, we ban them.

    Deep dive into Jack Trice and Clyde Williams. Both have fascinating histories (most know more about Jack obviously)

    Good idea. I don't know very much about Clyde Williams. Seems like it should be a bigger part of our fan knowledge base.

    You can trace some of the influence of the "overhead" pass as we know it in football today to him.
