    Anyone Catch Marty Yesterday???

    Was listening to Marty on 1700 and he commented on Witosky doing a potential piece on Iowa State MBB (around the 4PM hour). That sounds like potential trouble. They placed a call to Tom but he refused to discuss anything.
    Not sure if anyone has any idea, or if this was Marty just trying to ruffle some feathers. You could just tell that Trent was grinning the entire time this was going on.
    I saw no threads on the subject. Drive time radio in Central Iowa blows.

    Re: Anyone Catch Marty Yesterday???

    There's another thread about this. No whispers have come out of the AD yet, so most people doubt it's anything serious. Marty is always dramatic, and Witosky is probably just looking for something silly to derail the bball season.

    Re: Anyone Catch Marty Yesterday???

    I was listening from about 4 to 4:30 off and on and there was no mention of it. They spent that time talking about who their final 4 would be (Marty says that Calipari is already getting fitted for the ring) and bashing TNT on 1460. So yeah.....great radio

    He first mentioned that Friday night while live at the well for wrestling. As he signed off at 6, he dropped this one out there. On another board, some have said he was digging into McDermott days and some coaches expensing alcohol receipts from Johnny's.

    Sounds like groundbreaking journalism by the Rag. Biggest story of the year!

    Re: Anyone Catch Marty Yesterday???

    So at best this is a non issue.
    At worse it is a case of an ISU employee make unauthorized alcohol purchases using university money.

    Either way, this is such a HUGE scandal. I am shaking with anxiety.

    Re: Anyone Catch Marty Yesterday???

    I think the best the Liars on Locust could come up with is old dirt. I am sure the sheer amount of talent and transfers can seem sketchy (I raised an eyebrow when I saw all of the initial names a few years back).
    That said, no reason to try and dimish what is a truly great story for the state. Marty is off base. When he misses the mark (like saying Doug was currently a better all-around player than HB) he tries to twist words and get the crew steered away from his point. Just for once I'd like someone to call the guy on it (and not back down). Trent is unbearable, as well.
    I know, I know... Don't listen.

    Marty doesn't bother me at all. I haven't listened since he left KXNO. He's not that hard to ignore.

    Discussed here:

    How come Witosky never did a hit piece on the rhabdo stuff? Player's health was directly affected and I don't remember him ever coming out with his damaging piece on that...

    The tavernhawks cannot stand that ISU is going to be in the NCAA tournament. They must try something (anything!) to diminish what ISU has accomplished this season.

    Re: Anyone Catch Marty Yesterday???

    Marty did say something along the lines of "I'm starting to get the feeling that this is probably nothing"

    I really wish someone in the media would call out Witoski on his BS

    Re: Anyone Catch Marty Yesterday???

    Was Johnnys even open in the McDermott days? I thought that opened last year. Even so, how would this be anymore than an internal AD issue, or at worse a state accounting audit. Nothing about coaches expensing alcohol sounds like an NCAA issue. Perhaps we could even send a bill to McDermott.

    I think he was referring to Johnny's in Des Moines. That's been around for quite a while.

    Ah, makes more sense. Still, is this really a problem? If this is what Witosky is clinging to these days he's going to find himself a part if the next rag layoffs.
