    Brando on F-baum: ISU Legit

    In responding to caller Robert of Waterloo's lament on UI ineptitude, Tim Brando asserted Iowa State's legitimacy on the Feinbaum show earlier today:

    I won't make fun of your grammar (were you the caller?) but the screener should be fired, or at least suspended.

    Re: Brando on F-baum: ISU Legit

    Robert from Waterloo calls all those sirius shows. I've heard him alot on the College show that Mike Leech used to be on and he was an idiot every time he called. For some reason Leech used to love him, even invited them to do picks with them last season every week.


    That rug really tied the room together, did it not dude?

    He has to be special needs, right? Kinda seems like they're picking on a guy with a handicap a little bit.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    I listen to all the Sirius stations when traveling and Robert from Waterloo is an institution. Robert is somewhat handicapped and that is exposed when he speaks, but Robert is not a stupid man. He has a huge heart and if you listen to him long enough that comes out.

    You can do a search on YouTube and there is a clip where Finebaum and a couple of regular guest callers take a charter up to Waterloo and visit him in the house. One of the callers is Tammi, and she is a huge Auburn fan. Finebaum is all Alabama. Anyway, the segment is kinda cool, and what they do for Roberts confidence and self esteem is quite cool.

    Regarding Mike Leach, they used to make weekly picks, and there was a three way contest between Leach, Robert, and Jack Arute. I am not a big Finebaum fan as his ego is quite large, but what he did for Robert is commendable.

    That's good to hear. From the one little clip I listened to, it was hard to tell if there was genuine appreciation for the guy, or they were using him as comedic relief.

    This is cool. I'd never heard of Robert and am glad they embraced him.

    I believe it's MS. Finebaum and others do a nice thing letting share his thoughts. Other callers are respectful is well.

    But he is a hawk fan dang it....

    Another fan of Robert here, even if he is a Hawk, the Sirius college sports show community has embraced him quite nicely. I would say he calls in to at least 1 show daily, and generally has a pretty good idea on what is going on.
