    The only bad part of win on Saturday

    No.......... I mean absolutely no national coverage on the win. It was a wonderful last second field goal but still nothing.

    ESPN never mentioned it on gameday and nothing on sportscenter as well. The rivalry really has dropped off the national scale.

    I saw it on multiple replays all afternoon. The game was mentioned until the late games started to come on. At least that's what I saw. Maybe not on Game Day, but, it's not like either team was ranked. Personally, for 2 unranked teams, without National implications, I thought we got fair coverage. A lot more than we've seen for Kent St. or UNI.

    Well, seeing how neither team is good - it's not worth ESPN's time. Too bad, would've been nice to have Shaggy get the ESPN time after having the missed kicks shown there.

    I saw the reception and FG that won us the game on one of the halftime shows. I also heard a rumor that Shaggy's game winner was the #4 play of the day in ESPN's top 10 plays.

    I heard them talk about the game on national tv for a little bit during the USC Nebraska game when talking about the north

    It was the #4 play of the day.

    What kind of national coverage would you expect? Neither team is ranked and there is no compelling national story. The only reason ND and Michigan got so much attention is that they are two of the winningest programs in history and going into their game both were winless.



    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.

    Plus, being on Versus as opposed to ESPN Plus didn't help.

    Brent Musburger and Kirk Herbstreit both gave shout outs to Iowa State and Gene Chizik during the ESPN on ABC national telecast of Nebraska vs. USC. They needed something to talk about the way that disaster went in Lincoln...

    ESPN had a headline on thier front page that said, "Lowly Iowa State beats Iowa"

    I wish I could boycott ESPN for this, but obviously I cant.

    Let's see - we were 0-2 before the game, with losses to a MAC team and a D I-AA team. Seems pretty accurate and truthful in its reporting if you ask me...
