    new low point for Cyclones on TV

    DesMoinesRegister.com


    This is a new low point for ISU in the world of TV coverage of football. I know, I know, its the Big 12's crappy package that we're held victim to...but still, come on...Drake vs. UNI on TV and Iowa State vs. Kent St AND UNI not on TV?

    Drake and UNI are winners. So far we are not. I hate it as much as you do, but its true.

    I could see Drake/UNI being televised don't get me wrong but... ISU/UNI would have as much/more draw for a television audience

    Re: new low point for Cyclones on TV

    There's a strong chance we only have 1 game on TV this year. That's sad, but at the same time we have ourselves to blame to a certain extent.

    It's an embarrassment. The Big 10 network is now on Dish Network... we need a TV network bad.

    Re: new low point for Cyclones on TV

    Ya I know...Drake/UNI was on Fox last year I believe. Fact is Mediacom would pick up every ISU game if they were allowed by Fox Sports, etc. Bottom line is win, and you don't have to worry about this kind of stuff

    the OU and Texas game will be on somewhere...at least FSN...the people down south always get those games...especially Texas. I wouldnt be surprised if the TT game is on somewhere as well.

    I am not up on all of this TV deal stuff, but aren't we guaranteed 1 TV appearance with the Big 12?

    I'm sure we will have 1 conference game on anyway, especially if we start 2-2 the Nebraska game should be on. If we were to start 1-3, lose to Nebbie and Texas Tech to fall to 1-5, that's a team not getting on TV regardless of playing OU or Texas IMO. I hope we take care of our next 3 games so this is avoided.

    Re: new low point for Cyclones on TV

    Winning is only part of the solution. That is the problem with our TV package. If we were 6-0 and played the same time as OU-Texas or Nebraska versus Texas AM etc.....Then what do you know....We are not on TV. The solution is fixing the contract and everyone and their dog knows it. I biggest thing that makes me mad is when someone says Drake must have more viewers than ISU. Is that why they get 383 people to attend their football games? Hell UNI gets 10,000 IF they are lucky. They get the freedom of TV if they want because their conferences are not D-Bags. They acutally take the approach of gee.......Maybe if we get our product out there people will show interest in the Gateway etc.....Man that makes me ******.
