    Ben Bruns

    I heard on the reaction show that Ben Bruns was critical of ISU after the game...What did he say and what was he critical of?

    Re: Ben Bruns

    Let's start with, what wasn't there to be critical of?

    Re: Ben Bruns

    I think it was about the fact that OU's concessions moved much faster at halftime than ISU's do.

    Re: Ben Bruns

    He was pretty down on the offense, and specifically the offensive line. I wasn't listening closely, but that's what I gathered.

    I like that we have someone who isn't afraid to tell it like it is. I don't want homers or sunshine pumpers...just give it to me straight.

    Re: Ben Bruns

    I didn't expect a win last night or even that close of a game...but if Ben was NOT critical of the team he wasn't doing his job as an analyst. Ben is slowing becoming the main analytical voice of ISU football imo.

    Re: Ben Bruns

    Ben is awesome. We are lucky to have such a good three person team for the football broadcasts. Last night Ben didn't say anything outrageous, he just told it like he saw it. He was just analyzing, not being negative.

    I appreciate what Ben has to say. Yes he loves ISU but he is not afraid to tell it like it is when it comes to this team. There needs to be a critical voice on the 'inside'. I learn something about football every time I hear him speak.

    Ben always tells it like it is, which is what I like about him. He doesn't sugar coat it either, even John walters was critical of the offense.

    I agree. When Eric Heft retires, Ben should be the new color analyst.

    What offense? When you score no touchdowns you have no offense. Maybe we can at least kick a field goal against the mighty longhorns from austin.

    Grant needs to make those 50 yard kicks or we might be skunked.

    Re: Ben Bruns

    He can be a bit of a richard when it comes to the Hawks and the rivalry, but he loves ISU so I get it, not a big deal to me. I think sideline reporters for the most part are overrated in terms of what they do, but I think Ben is one of the exceptions. He is good at breaking down things and explaining them in laymen terms. Came off well as a color analyst doing the UNI game.

    Brutally honest almost to a fault......If your a clonefan I would think this would be what you want.

    It depends on what level of critical you're talking about. He said our offense wasn't very good, and who is going to argue with that. The reaction show was pretty quiet and not much was said, because there was nothing to really talk about. Actually, I thought Bruns held back and was hardly critical at all. Its not like he went on a rant, he just said (in essence) "the offense isn't very good" and that's it. I wish he would have said more of what his thoughts were.
