    Big 12 Network Announcers

    They were terrible, and they need to call a game without belching out their own opinions.

    To say that Kansas "smokes Iowa State" or "Imagine that Bill Self gets another easy win at home" is not good for the network.

    Pathetic if you ask me.

    ^^^ This ^^^

    I think they forgot that they weren't working for the KU television network. They are supposed to announce, not lead cheers.

    To be fair, they are both true statements.

    Re: Big 12 Network Announcers

    I imagine that you wouldn't have much of a problem with it if we had smoked KU and they had described our win as such.

    I agree in general with you, but this is what we get for being the laughing stock of the conference. Some day it might get better. Some day.

    True - but this was the nature of their "announcing" for the entire game.

    I'm hoping next game they can talk about twins for more than a half an hour, 25 minutes just isn't enough for me. Stock with football Mitch.

    No one cares about our crappy team except for us. We get what we deserve right now. Hopefully it gets better next year.

    Personally, just because we are bad, doesn't mean that the announcers need to make that call. The stats speak for themselves, the announcers need to leave it to stats and scores.

    The game shouldn't be called that way, on either side. I try to play it fair.

    Mitch should stick to saying "Touchdown KAN-SAS CITY!"

    Re: Big 12 Network Announcers

    I like it when Mitch is calling games... of course im a Chiefs fan as well... But i dont know what game you were watching... KU did smoke us... I dont know how many 3's we hit in the 2nd half, but it didnt matter... A win over 20 is a impressive win... Stop crying about the little things....this thread should belong in a husker foorball forum....

    The announcers are the reason we lost.

    If you don't like the "crying" don't read this post. I was bringing up a conversation point that I noticed during the game, thats it. They smoked us, you are correct, but that doesn't NEED to be said Over-The-Air. I don't believe its their call to make. I would expect it called that way on the Kansas network, not Big 12.

    A win over 20? Yes, very impressive so give Kansas credit and say they played a great game, pretty simple.
