    Ken Miller . . . Here we go again.

    I happened to tune into KXNO (first time in several months) . . . and walla:

    Blabber mouth Miller was back to his same ole schtick . . when the Big XII collapses . . . ISU will be the last dog hanging. He also stated ISU will NEVER win a Big XII title in football . . . Kansas, Kansas State, Missouri will have places to go . . . ISU will do well in the Mountain West. His co host, like a goof, could offer no insights, reclaimer, or counter points. My take on this freelancer . . Miller holds a DEEP contempt for ISU . . . provided talking point from the pro Iowa media types.

    In the meantime . . back to listening to any station other than KXNO.

    BTW the locals are just drooling over the Iowa/NU game . . . so Clones, just go out and beat Iowa this year in football and basketball . . to shut these idiots up.

    Typical sqawk, non-alumni banter.

    Re: Ken Miller . . . Here we go again.

    Listened for an hour yesterday, and must have missed that conversation. Admittedly, I stopped listening before Kakert came on to talk Hawkeyes. So, maybe it happened then. But, I don't think Miller has a hatred for the Clones. I think he is fairly even handed. His problem is more of a pessimistic droopy dog attitude. Nothing good is going to happen, so why talk about it. That is probably my main issue with him.

    Re: Ken Miller . . . Here we go again.

    Not only has he convinced himself that this is an inevitability, he actually WANTS to see it happen. It's a disgrace. As much as I hate the Hawkeyes, I wouldn't wish this on them. It isn't good for anybody.

    Re: Ken Miller . . . Here we go again.

    I dont usually complain, but this past week there was about 20 times the amount of discussion of Big 10 media days than there was on Big 12 media days. It was all of the shows on KXNO.

    Re: Ken Miller . . . Here we go again.

    Is it me or do these radio guys around the Des Moines area do very little research?

    Re: Ken Miller . . . Here we go again.

    I've got my concern about what Ken Miller thinks ranked slightly ahead of my concern of what color toe nail polish Dennis Rodman has on right now.

    So... Way to go, Kenny! Good job outta you.

    I dont dislike Miller, but in the spirit of fairness, he took plenty of shots at ISU during the Miller/Giggles days.

    Re: Ken Miller . . . Here we go again.

    I honestly think Ken Miller calls things as he sees them, regardless of what program he's talking about. I don't hear any contempt for ISU from him.

    That said, he's been wrong on plenty of predictions in the past, so I'm not sweating this one.

    Didn't you like Kakert's talking points?

    1) He said regarding ISU . . "I don't know much about them?"
    2) Talks as if he could care less about the game . . . in his laconic tone of voice.
    3) As always, he has a mild concern about the ISU game because Iowa has lost to bad ISU teams in the past. Nice little slam supported by blabber mouth Miller.
    4) Iowa was just a couple of plays away last year in the Big 10/11/12.

    Re: Ken Miller . . . Here we go again.

    I agree with him. Iowa State will never win a conference championship in the Big 12. I'd actually somewhat agree with him on the other point too. If there's a collapse and the Missouri to the SEC rumors are true and the KU/KSU to Big East are true, Iowa State is left hanging. Iowa State is never included in rumors. There's a reason for that. His opinion isn't that of huge Iowa State homers and the truth probably lies somewhere between.

    And for the record, sports radio blows goat in Des Moines.

    Yeah, in no way is Miller a Hawk homer. If the Big 12 were to implode, nobody knows what would happen to ISU. ISU is about the least attractive school in the conference, has no ties to any of the other schools, and is pretty much the least attractive team in the Big 12. Those are facts, and Miller is just taking those facts and turning them into a dooms day scenario for ISU. There no solid evidence that he is right or wrong, its just his opinion. Of course the ISU homers on this board are going to have the opposite opinion of him on the debate, but overall I would say he is unbiased in his opinion.

    He has gone solo now . . . in the Giggles tradition. I guess you could say "so low."

    Here is how I see the whole KXNO thing . . throw ISU a bone once in a while . . just to make them feel like they belong in the discussion. But always remember the talking points from the pro Iowa media:

    !) ISU does not belong in a BCS conference.
    2) You can't win at ISU.
    3) ISU never fills its stadium.
    4) The Big XII will collapse.
    5) Given point 4 . . . ISU will never land in another BCS conference.
    6) ISU has no history of winning.
    7) ISU is little brother to Iowa
    8) The Iowa/ISU contest is presently being dumped for the Iowa/NU series.
    9) Hence, ISU is irrelevant to the sports scene in Iowa.
