    Re: Announcement is here: It's Mediacom

    "This agreement allows our athletics program to become only the third institution nationally (Texas and BYU) with a fully dedicated channel for its sports teams," Iowa State Athletics Director Jamie Pollard said. . . .

    Cyclones.tv and Mediacom will also air the Paul Rhoads Show, the Fred Hoiberg Show, the Bill Fennelly Show, the Cyclone CYdline & CourtCYd Shows at Applebee's, an Olympic Sports Spotlight, live media conferences and archived classic replays. . . .

    "The partnership with Mediacom is a game changer for our athletics program because we will be able to provide the most comprehensive coverage Cyclone sports teams have ever received," Pollard said. "The deal improves our ability to reach fans and recruits throughout the midwest, clearly strengthens the Iowa State Athletics brand" . . . .

    . . . Pollard said. "Our relationship with Mediacom means that our Cyclones.tv content will be available to more than 500,000 additional viewers." . . . Cyclones.tv is ranked No. 2 nationally for total viewers among all of NeuLion's (Iowa State's web site provider) 100-plus schools. . . .

    ------------------------------------------------

    Seems to me this is big, big stuff, not a yawner. No. 2 national viewer ranking right now shows Jamie P's foresight in moving quickly under the new Big 12 TV rules. Then, Jamie P expands ISU TV viewership by extending its reach to one-half-million additional viewers, including adjacent states? Wow.

    CPR has the football program moving (we're all excited about football recruiting and what it means for the future), we want the SEZ, which means we must expand our fan followership, which means more bucks for the AD. It's circular motion, and with every revolution we seem to pick up speed. Kinda like a Cyclone, right?

    And there's Jamie P, like the Wizard of Oz at his console pushing buttons and pulling levers. But Jamie's the real wizard, the stuff that's happening is real. And, it's magnificent.

    (Big side benefit, too. We can drop the so-so private companies that do a poor job carrying ISU programs. KCRG Cedar Rapids, for example. Sunday night it ran with the eiu basketball show, and ISU and Fred H were scheduled to follow but was replaced by some sort of outdoor show. Take a hike, KCRG. ISU is the rising power in the state, which means you lose out.)

    The other thing to remember, this is a 5 year deal. Might be okay to get it going, but then in 5 yrs, go for something wider.

    #2 among schools that use NeuLion (NeuLion - Internet Television Technology Innovators (IPTV) - Company Information) not across the NCAA

    Doesn't impact me, hope it pads the AD's checkbook. Now, either force NeuLion to create apps for internet ready devices, make a non-flash media player, or ditch them

    If you look at the schools that use it, however, it looks somewhat impressive.

    NeuLion - Internet Television Technology Innovators (IPTV) - Company Information

    Edit: I guess it did the same thing to you. Automatically changed the link to company information, instead of the list of schools using it.

    I'm a Web TV neophyte, or worse. Whatever you need, I hope you get!

    NeuLion was mentioned in context of some 100 similar schools doing programming. Is that not something, to be No. 2? (Heck, I don't know what NeuLion is, maybe its lineup isn't much? . . .)

    #2 seems like a pretty good spot if you see what schools they have on there:
    NeuLion - Internet Television Technology Innovators (IPTV) - Company Information then click on College Sports


    Lots of smaller schools, but some bigger name ones too:
    -Arkansas
    -Colorado
    -Duke
    -LSU
    -Florida
    -Nebraska
    -A&M
    -Oregon

    I don't know what the usage is referring too exactly, but that's a pretty good list to be near the top of

    As an "out of stater", I'm bummed personally, since I won't have access to this channel. But for the school, this is yet another good step in continuing our trend in becoming the dominant school in the state and keeping up with the competition.

    The Announcement wasn't too clear (to me) - will the online version still be available for folks like me?

    Oh, I thought it was completely obvious that cyclones.tv is a web-based TV channel. That's not changing and I have absolutely no idea what makes you think it would.
