    John Walters calling out DSM media

    Just got back from a business trip and had the good fortune to hear J Walt on the Murph and Andy show. I didn't realize that he tweeted this a few hours ago:

    "Some in Iowa media practically cheering for the Big 12 to blow up. IA HS kids get opportunity in 2 BCS conferences. You want that to change?"

    Pretty big confirmation of our concerns of the local media and accusation of their loyalties. In the interview, he even commented how some of the media are uofi fans at heart and cheer against ISU.

    That darn old DSM. Eve since Gannett bought them, they have been down on us. And now all the OWH (Ames tribune carrier) cares about is Hawk footrball this, Hawk football that. Guess, we are just going to have to win the Iowa game this year.

    Murph made that comment.

    The best was Andy's rant on why ISU potentially not being in a BCS conf was a terrible thing for the entire state. And J-Walt replied that he couldnt have said it any better.

    Re: John Walters calling out DSM media

    Great job by Jon.

    Its sad how many Iowans are too dumb to realize how big of a deal it is for the State of Iowa to have 2 BCS-level universities in a state of its size. Its absolutely great for the economy, academics, and prestige of the state.

    In saying this I realize the average Hawk fans has a high school education at best, and probably isn't able to understand this. But you would hope for more from the media, especially the sports media in this state, some of whom may not have jobs without two major Universities in the state and their ravenous fanbases.

    I respect the effort you made here to politely elevate the average Hawk fan.

    As far as the sports media jobs, I think you undersold it. What market would there really be around here without both universities? I don't see the whole state sitting breathlessly for Hawkeye radio like they do for Husker talk across the river.

    Without both universities, I think most of the sports media around here would be unemployed. There just wouldn't really be anything to talk about.

    We may have suspected it, however when John and Andy call out their colleagues on the air it gets a little more credibility.

    Living in Eastern Iowa, I hear a lot from some (not all) Iowa fans who seem thrilled at the idea of ISU getting pushed down to the MWC or MAC. Rivalry aside, Iowa having two BCS schools with such a small population is huge for the state, from prestige to the bottom line of tax revenues. ISU not being in a big time conference would have a negative impact on the state as a whole, going far beyond who gets featured on ESPN.

    Exactly! I don't know how this can possibly help his ratings. It used to be so much more fun and entertaining when he was attacking the Hawks. It was great radio. The hawk fans would call in and whine and fuel the fire. ISU fans just shake their heads and turn to 1460.

    Re: John Walters calling out DSM media

    Most Hawkeye fans only understand simple math, so it's easy to figure out what they are thinking. Current Hawkeye fanbase + new Hawkeye fans fleeing the Cyclones = more Hawkeye fans. It's difficult for their thinking to get more complicated than that. They may be able to figure out this means more money for their AD, but that's pushing it.

    its not just that there are 2 BCS schools, its that they are from different BCS conferences. Iowa is the only state that has a Big 12 and a Big 10 team.

    Newton car races? Chiefs football? John Deere Open? Summer Beerfests? Cubs bball? Yep, in that context, you are right.

    How much do they talk about these things?

    I don't listen, so I honestly don't know. Are these things they cover, or things that predominate their coverage?
