    ABC Telecast

    I am sure this has probably been hashed out over the weekend, but for those of us that attended the game, can someone that watched on TV give me some feedback? I am sure it was just as exciting to watch on TV as it was to be there. Excellent ball game despite the loss.

    It was great that we actually managed not to lay an egg against a highly ranked opponent.

    How did the announcing crew handle the game? Complimentary of the clones? Was it Musberger, or who?

    Chris Spielmand and Bob Griese on commentary. Forgot the PXPman. They had a very difficult time saying Iowa State is doing good at anything in my opinion. Red colored glasses for Nebby for sure. griese was critical of the 2 point throw. As the game got closer in the second half/ot, they could see that effort was coming to the forefront by ISU. Still they gritted their teeth when they said it.


    Eddyclone sezs.. See the future, be the man, be the ball.

    They did keep saying that they expected Nebraska to break a big one any moment, but other than that I thought they were pretty fair.

    A lot of comments about the wind, and very few compliments on the way Iowa State was hanging in there. Found it a little discouraging, but ultimately didn't care because of the way we finished the game. When Nebraska was going up big, it was a lot of talk about it being inevitable, when we came back, it was Nebraska making mistakes.

    Yes, I remember that. Spielman kept saying, I just feel that Helu is going to break a big one. I just feel it.

    Well seeing how he has done that a lot this season, can't blame them.

    Instead of worrying about perceived respect - I'm glad with the real respect we earned by not allowing NU any real big plays. I think their longest play on offense was 30 yards. Pretty damn good, IMO.

    I hope the crowd looked good on TV, because it was rockin' in the stadium.

    Re: ABC Telecast

    The nice thing about ABC was you could hear and see the crowd better than the FCS or FSN broadcasts. They didnt pipe up the crowd as much as ABC did. When you know the crowd is cheering their ***** off, but you cant hear them, then it seems like church. But the ABC commentators didnt know big12 football as well as the fox guys, so it was about an equally enjoyable experience.
