    ESPNU "The Experts"

    I was watching the show this evening & as expected the panel of experts were spending so much time discussing the legendary status of the ND/Michigan game. I was about to change the channel because I'm so sick of hearing about that game, almost non-stop from the national media when one of guys on the panel says: "Is this were I say that the Iowa/Iowa State game was a better game?!.......Steele Jantz, Steele Jantz baby!"

    Not much insight, just thought I'd pass along that ISU has been noticed by some national media members.

    Re: ESPNU "The Experts"

    Hey, I agree 100% the ISU game was just as good. I think the only draw back is that Michigan/Notre Dame has a little more interest than ISU/Iowa...

    Its unfortunate that game was on ESPN and ours on FSN. I credit 75% of the major publicity for that game from it being on their network. Sure it was good, but a 3 OT game between 2 hated rivals I believe deserves a little more recognition than our game was receiving.

    Our victory was in the brief summary at the beginning of Sportscenter that night. That's about as big as it gets.

    I saw that on Sat.

    They skipped straight to the 3rd OT ISU TD and then showed the trophy being grabbed, and fans on the field..

    I was very disappointed in their lack of air time, and the over abundance of cover of freakin ND and Mich.

    Re: ESPNU "The Experts"

    You guys are ridiculous. Notre Dame/Michigan at the Big House in the first ever night game there. The largest crowd ever to attend a college football game. Denard Robinson. 3 apparent game winning drives in what, the final 2 minutes or so? All in primetime on ESPN.

    We had a great game, but that game deserves a ton of credit and it lived up to the hype.

    That is nothing new. All ESPN knows is Michigan, Ohio State, Florida, and Alabama.

    The ISU/Iowa game was better. The Michigan QB was throwing up prayers that were being answered, and ND was non-existent on defense at the end of the game.
