    Seriously KXNO?

    Royce is drafted much higher than anticipated last night, and these two idiots are blathering on about football in London.

    They talked about the draft my entire 30 minute commute to work from 6:15 to 6:45ish.

    I'm surprised they aren't talking about something less relevant. They seem to think that two guys randomly talking about things is interesting.

    Much higher than anticipated? ESPN projected him 21st and he went 16th.

    Are they supposed to do a full two hour show just on Royce White today?

    Those two are awful. It's like they purposely like to talk about things they don't think anyone will want to listen to.

    I'm going to guess that even if the draft got 30 minutes, Royce got about 2 minutes and not even directly.

    If it was an Iowa player, they'd give it the whole show.

    Hawk fans are so cute when they get jealous.

    They probably talked about Royce directly for a few minutes, and talked A LOT about the impact this will have on ISU as far as recruiting. They argued for a good 15 minutes if ISU could ever be similar to Kentucky (having a bunch of players NBA worthy on the roster who are potential 1 and dones) because of CFH's connections in the NBA. Ross was the only one who thought ISU could never be on that level, both Travis and Tim argued they could. They all agreed that last night showed the connections CFH has to the NBA, and recruits probably took notice, especially after Mchales interview.

    Well I don't think its any secret these guys are all Iowa fans first, but they are pretty fair to ISU, IMO.

    My only complaint about the show, and this never seems to change, is that they structure it horribly. Realistically, they are going to have a vast majority of their listeners between 7 and 8, yet they always talk about the more "listener popular" stuff between 6 and 7, and the more boring stuff between 7 and 8. They need to make their list of stuff to talk about, and then do it in reverse order.

    Really - ??? I usually catch them from about 6:05 - 6:30 and they're (at least lately) talking about Travis' son, other odd ball stuff, rather than current sports talk. If they talk about the important stuff starting at 6:00, I must not be in the groove.

    So in other words, they didn't say anything that the average fan didn't already know. They offered nothing new in the way of expertise, insight or perspective. They vomited up benign drivel that could have just as easily been posted by some message board moron months ago and was, many many times. Yeah, that's good radio.
