    CTN Color guy

    I thought the color commentary was pretty weak tonight, does anybody know if Jake Sullivan will be working for CTN this year?

    Re: CTN Color guy

    Nope. Jake backed out right before the season two years ago. That's why you saw a whole host of characters in that seat, including Jim Hallihan and Kelly (Cizek) Hanfelt.

    Cyclone Radio is like hot apple pie ala mode. Cyclone Television is like chewing on cardboard. I need to rig up a delay of about 5 seconds on my TV feed so it synchs with the radio.

    Never fear, I'm sure Paul Splitdorf(sp) and Dave Armstrong(WOW!) will be back in the saddle later on in the season. Last season we had the JV squad doing games early on as well.

    The only time you'll hear Wow or Split would be for a Big 12/ESPN+ game.

    I actually don't mind B.J. Schaben and the other guy, I think they represent well.

    You mean you don't find comments such as "To beat the press, you have to score against the press" particularly insightful?


    TRUE AND VALIANT

    I miss Gary Thompson. Watching him do the games was really a treat.

    Re: CTN Color guy

    I thought BJ Schaben was alright. I remember he used to do local radio in Ames, the morning sports updates or something. His signature sign off was "that sports and I'm BJ Schaben" or something like that He always seemed like an insightful and classy guy. I believe he filled in after Pete Taylor passed away too. I was pulling he'd get the job, but John's done pretty well. It's good to see him visibly involved in Cyclone athletics again.

    You know 101.1 is about 5 seconds ahead of 100.3. The BUS has a delay, so you could listen to the game on a different station. OR, you could get a DVR and watch the game through that, which also has about a 5 second delay.

    Medders will be back in Ames doing games for Mediacom. Not sure it it's men's, women's, or both.

    Re: CTN Color guy

    I agree about the analyst. Didn't think he was very good. I don't mind B.J. Schaben that much.

    The other thing I didn't like was their opening and graphics. Looked like something out of the mid-1990s to me.
