    Mid-season Mackey List - another reason to hate local media

    I just found out that Collin Franklin is one of 22 TE's on the mid-season Mackey Award watch list. Congratulations CF!!

    The reason for the title of this thread? Channel 13 reported only Reisner (Iowa's TE) on the list last night. There is also a glaring omission in this morning's Rag. On the back page of the Sports section, under "Iowa Scene", the Mackey Award watch list is a topic, and AGAIN...only mentions Reisner.

    **** ME!! It's no wonder we have a smaller fanbase when these idiots only report one way. I'm ******* ****** about this.

    Congrats to Franklin! Anyone break down where he ranks stat wise with the other TEs on the list?

    Re: Mid-season Mackey List - another reason to hate local media

    I assume Univ. of Iowa put out a press release on it that the media picked up, but ISU didn't get a release out yesterday. And, the media didn't check the list themselves, I suppose.

    Wow. Franklin is 6th in yardage for all TEs. Two back on TDs compared to the leader (4).

    Oh it's out there. It just didn't get moved on very fast for whatever reason.

    Ask any media personality about how well we do with press releases. Most will tell you we are exceptional with it.

    Re: Mid-season Mackey List - another reason to hate local media

    Reisner- 19 grabs, 229 yds, 1 TD
    Franklin- 31 grabs, 313 yds, 2 TDs
    If they really didn't mention Franklin, my Keith and Andy stock went way down. Who reported the story?

    Just like a roaming flight of drones . . you guys are amazing! Nevertheless, why don't we just let OUR athletic department do all the press releases for the RAG?

    Isn't that a sportscasters job? "Huh, Franklin has better stats than Reisner. Maybe I should google the list and make sure."
