    Rough September for Giggles

    I'm not sure which is more devastating:

    - His beloved Red Sox choking away a 9 game advantage.

    or

    - AD Jamie Pollard getting recognition for helping shape the future of the Big XII.

    At least the Creighton men's soccer team is undefeated at 8-0 without giving up a goal yet this season.

    Re: Rough September for Giggles

    I would have to imagine that even Hawkeye fans could see Pollard and Walters were the better men in their altercations with that puke.

    I LOVED the day Walters dropped the bomb on him when he was laughing at the Hoiberg hire. He won't be laughing about it this winter.

    JP fired Dan McCarney.
    When Matty first came into the Omaha market, UNL wouldn't return his calls. Coach McCarney would call into his show every week and talk Big 12 football when Nebraska wouldn't.
    It's funny because after a year or so he jumped onto the Nebraska bandwagon. Even started referring to Nebraska football as "we"

    Re: Rough September for Giggles

    He's a worthless hack that shouldn't be mentioned on this board.
    At one point in time, long ago, I had a little respect for him, but then he went all shock jock. Keep him on the east coast where he belongs.

    I'd rather moderate the mega-thread than spend another second thinking about that worthless bag of skin. I'd rather chow down on 'possum tartare. I'd rather sit through a group therapy session for people with large, festering boils on their buttocks.

    Wow. The guy has been gone for how many months and people that claim they don't like him still talk about him. That is just creepy in so many ways.

    Re: Rough September for Giggles

    I'm driving home from work yesterday, and was please to flip on Marty's show and guess who was on? Pollard!

    We all know that Marty doesn't pull any punches (and can be quite annoying and sometimes unfair to ISU), but he's never done enough to cause Pollard to boycott his show. That says A LOT about how poorly sporttalkmatt (or whatever his username is/was) handled that whole situation.

    It's not because Husker coaches and players wouldn't be a guest on Matt's Omaha show or Unsportsmanlike Counduct for that matter because in state, Nebraska coaches & players can only appear on the Husker Sports Network nightly show, Sports Nightly.

    That's a good point. KXNO would probably take Matty back in a second. Something to be said about a shock jock. people may not like him, but he got people to listen.

    Re: Rough September for Giggles

    Every time I see one of these threads it leads me to respect SportstalkMatt more. When it comes down to it he is an outstanding radio personality if he can get the listening audiences panties in a bunch months after he leaves the market just because his teams are doing poorly and things he commented against are doing well. He didn't even do anything personally to spark this conversation.

    Congratulations to him on being to manipulate the public so well that he manages to get free publicity and maintain his brand by nothing more than what he talked about on the phone not happening. He has absolutely achieved the sports talk equivalent of a shock jock and will make a living because of it. Kudos to each and every one of us who have posted about him in this thread for helping promote his brand! I can't wait until he comes back to the DSM area because his image here is still so strong.
