    Reason # 112 Giggles is not a good sports talk host

    I posted this in a thread for Giggles and also sent him a PM 5 months ago but he has yet to respond. My biggest beef is he doesn't know his market. He also spouted the same line on his show.

    It is harder to compete for a NC in bball from the Mountain West. Stats prove out that higher seeds (always from major confs) are more likely to make the final four and compete for that Nat Championship.

    Quote Matt P
    What are you talking about? When has Iowa State EVER competed for a National Title in the BCS era?? If you are in the Mountain West - you have the same opportunity as you do in the Big 12 to compete for a NC in basketball....

    Sorry that the facts are scary guys....
    Quote Matt P
    Know your history if you're going talk sports in Iowa...

    - We get a fairly decent record and fall a field goal short of playing in the Big 12 Championship Mac's second to last year. Field goes in we are a game away from getting in to a BCS game. We never sniff a BCS game in the MWAC unless we go undefeated. Advantage membership BCS conference.

    - 2000 and 2001 Back to Back Big 12 Champions. 2 seed in the tourney. Statistics show being a higher seed results in progressing further through the tournament. Again an advantage of being a BCS conference. We don't get a 2 seed winning the Mount West. Advantage membership BCS conference.

    - Major college conferences regularly get more seeds in the tournament. The mountain west gets what 1 or 2?

    This is what you need to read and read again to understand why ISU fan DOES NOT want to leave the Big 12 and step down. We lose out on all those opportunities if we step down a level.

    Maybe it's something of a more generic sports thing you JUST DON'T GET. A true competitor never takes pride in beating a lesser opponent. If you want to be the best you play the best.

    If we step down do you EVER think we have a win that would mean as much as beating Nebraska did last year??? No, and that right there is the exact reason we are in the Big 12. The games matter because we are playing the best.

    He won't ever respond. I sent him one two and I was respectful, yet he never responded to it. He can spout off as long as no one ever has a valid point against him.


    I'm on Twitter too: Tre4ISU

    Or so I have read.

    I'm slowly switching back to 1700.

    I don't mind someone ripping ISU when deserved or true. I do mind when a radio host in our market makes crap up.

    I'm also quietly confident his time in this market is limited.

    Reason: limited selection of sports talk to listen to on my way home from work on the AM dial.

    Re: Reason # 112 Giggles is not a good sports talk host

    I listen to 1700 now whenever I can catch some drivetime sports radio. Seems like Marty is much more tolerable these days.

    I'd listen the Keith and Andy, but I'm never able to catch their show. So 1460 is pretty much off the dial for me. I liked Miller when he was paired up with Marty, he seemed to try and be the voice of reason. But it seemed the few times I tried to give him and Peewault a chance, Miller just goes with the flow. After the Walters interview I was done listening to that crap.

    I'd rather listen to pop music than the crap KXNO has to offer on my drive home. To each his own.

    Just turn him off, and quit listening to that channel. If you need local radio for the ride home tune in to 1700. I've heard Matt once to see what the complaints were about and flipped it back to 1700 after about 15 minutes. I've only been back to 1460 for the rare occasion I'm in the car for Keith and Andy.

    None of the local hosts respond. No matter what format their show is.

    Both of you are right on the statements. Marty is leaps and bounds better, and I prefer Cowherd and SVP over Rome and DP.
