    Jon Miller Ripping ISU, Sweet Caroline

    Laughing at us for playing Sweet Caroline when the players were coming out for the second half Saturday night. Asked why we didn't play Thunder Struck or something that could pump the players up when they came out after the half. I couldn't agree more.

    Also said Iowa has NOTHING to gain by playing ISU and everything to lose.

    Funny how his opinion of this game changes with the year. If we were sitting at 2-0 he wouldn't be saying that.



    What ever happened to truth, justice and the American Way?

    Of course not.

    And if we were 2-0 and EIU was 0-2 all the bashing would be going their way.

    Agree with him about Sweet Caroline, we deserve to be made fun of over that.

    Disagree with the 2nd BS comment.

    Uhh... doesn't Iowa listen to Hey Jude at their stadium? That doesn't exactly get me pumped up.

    Re: Jon Miller Ripping ISU, Sweet Caroline

    Sweet Caroline is a song that's played at some stadiums across the country because it's a thing that most fans enjoy and can get involved with. I know it's a big deal at Fenway Park.

    As far as the second comment by him, it's not a completely off base claim. At least not until we're back to respectability.

    Gotta say, Sweet Caroline has to go. Why they decide to play that at the times they have played it the last couple of weeks is beyond me.

    Re: Jon Miller Ripping ISU, Sweet Caroline

    they just need to play it at the right time...


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    Gotta agree with him, that song has no place at a game. Well maybe 30 min before, that would be fine. Or when fans are leaving, I am ok with that.

    On this clause, I agree with him, and I believe the converse of this clause to be equally true as well.

    There are some FB rivalry games that garner national attention...like UCLA/USC, UT/OU, OU/NU, and bunch of SEC games...just because...who knows why, but they do. The ISU/Iowa FB game is not one of those games. Ultimately, I think both schools would benefit by dumping the series and searching out games with teams from other conferences that would garner a larger TV audience and give greater exposure.

    I'd like to see that Pac-10 / Big 12 MBB challenge thing get extended to FB in some way. Lots of people live in Pac-10 land...exposure there can't hurt...

    I see alot of confusion in general. They really need someone to organize the presentation of the various media. Music, video, etc
