    Good news: The Williams/Blum Summer Series of podcasts will return in the next few weeks. You guys remember this from a few summers ago? Basically Blum and me shooting the **** about random Iowa State themed topics. I think we did biggest kicks to the nuts ... that was the big one. Stuff like that.

    Now taking topic ideas. Will pick the best five. Go!

    I'd like you to examine each of the major sports at ISU and their potential - i.e. what's the highest ceiling and what would it take to reach that ceiling?

    Untold recruiting stories. I'm sure you've got some info on what really went down with Juiston situation but that one may be a bit too fresh. Going back a few years or to previous staffs would be interesting to hear some scoop on players staff thought they had, got at last second, schools that came in at the 11th hour on current/ex Cyclones.... stuff like that.

    What happens when all the TV contracts expire at once in the 2020s?

    What factors are going to be in play?

    Not just realignment -- but a fundamental change in the business model of college sports.

    Did a quick forum search to find the previous topics from 2015. Feel free to add any I may have missed, CW:

    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

    One topic I think that would be fun would be top ISU Villains. Guys that really got under out skin over the years from some of our rivals.

    Call fizer and do a joint interview on that team he's putting together. That'll do well this summer since nothing else is going on.

    Times officials screwed up in Iowa State's direction

    (the JVB shot and that is like it)

    Dumbest/funniest moves by opponents against Iowa State

    Untold or behind the scenes Iowa State coaching search stories and recruiting stories with details. Maybe coaches Iowa State almost had or recruits that almost came here, but something happened.
    Or on the flip side coaches and recruits that have come to Iowa State that other schools went after, but stayed wishbone Iowa State. Just looking for the whole story with details. Insider info type of stuff. Like the Rhoads to Wisconsin rumors or Hoiberg to Minnesota. Would love to hear the whole story of those.

    Might as well throw Lard in there. Might have been our front court rotation.

    And the upcoming one... Malou had two to play.

    Wiggi
    Jackson
    NWB
    Malou
    Young

    ...does not sound half bad.

    Interesting twist would be speculating on how some of the negatives, like Malou not being eligible, ended up being a good thing. With Malou here, would Young have been buried on the bench and end up being a high risk for a transfer? Instead we likely have a solid 4 year player.

    These podcasts were my favorite that you guys every did. Just hanging out, drinking some beer, and talking clones. Loved it.

    I think a good one would be best behind the scenes stories from Iowa State Athletics. Personal off-the-record interactions with players, coaches, officials, etc.

    Another idea that I'd really like would be a breakdown of the Iowa-Iowa State rivalry. Specific stories from different games, FB & BB, and where the rivalry is headed/previews

    Excited for this series to be back! My dad and I enjoyed listening to them with some beers and then talking about our opinions on the topics afterward.

    Of course it would have to be done in Fort Collins - 'cuz it's legal there, not in Iowa. Oh, wait a minute...

    Untold or more detail on hinted at off the court/field stories.

    Why the football program was so bad in the 80s and 90s.

    A couple of ideas:

    1. Who would be on ISU's Mount Rushmore of athletics
    2. Discuss the history of Cyclone Fanatic
