Wide Right and Natty Lite is doing a countdown of the top 100 reasons to be a Cyclone fan. Whether it be football, basketball, wrestling or cricket we have taken the time to analyze exactly why you should cheer for the Cyclones and chant "Fuck...The...Hawkeyes" at the top of your lungs. Settle in for the 100 straight non-consecutive days of why you should cheer for the cardinal and gold over all esle.

Countdown to Kickoff: Days 82-72

Whoa, hey there guys. We didn't forget about our loyal readers. We just needed some "space". I assure you, it's not you, it's me.

In reality this hiatus happened for two reasons:

1. Like other members of our staff, my "real" career is undergoing some significant changes that eats away my free time.
2. I wanted to piggy back off the Know Your Enemy page views for Texas A&M and Baylor. lumpys

Anyway, here are 11 non-consecutive reasons to be a Cyclone fan. All Campustown related. They also may or may not exist currently. Sorry young'uns, some of the places on the list hold a special place in the heart of our older demographic.

11. Gyros - Have you ever had these sober? They're awful. #11 on the list because of their awesomeness while drunk but terribleness when sober.

10. Legend's - Definitely not for the food, but for the view of campus.

9. Es Tas - Those tacos they sell on the street make you pay for it the next morning but going down they taste just like Drew Tate's tears.

8. Little Taipei/Cocost - Cheap, cheap Chinese within walking distance of nearly anywhere.

7. Jeff's Pizza - Easily one of the best food options to happen to Campustown in the last 10 years.

6. Sips - Where else can you go to get athletes' rejected groupies with low self-esteem?

5. Welch Avenue Station - A personal favorite of mine, easily the best place to watch a game and get good beer in Campustown. Now comes without stale smoke smell!

4. Lumpy's - Sure it's awesome when you're drunk but the only reason it's not down with Gyros at #11 is becuase of the ability to pee anywhere. Including the foosball table and bar. $.25 draws of Michelob Golden Light don't hurt it's ranking either.

3. Mickey's FAC - There's something about going to drink at 3:00 PM and walking out at 6:00 realizing it's still daylight, you have eight hours unti the bars close, and you're getting up in 12 hours to tailgate.

2. Towers - A little south of Campustown but back in its heyday was easily the best place to start your college career.



1. People's - They may be closed but every night was a party. Whether it be Monday Night Football, Buck Burgers, FAC or a band on Saturday you always went to the bar coming away with a story.
