    Re: PODCAST: Talking Texas Tech, the Big 12 & more

    Nice, listened to the whole thing.

    Brent Blum apparently thinks we'll only have 40k in the stands for the Iowa State game. I can't even remember the last time our attendance was that low. We set a stadium record a few weeks ago with 60k against Texas State. You think we won't have a big crowd for ISU? You're nuts, buddy!

    I understand picking your team to win, and your reasons are sound, but I really don't understand the need to take every backhanded shot you can at our team at our fans. Our media guys certainly never do that to Iowa State, or even come close.

    I'm not trying to be rude or anything, and I hope I don't get banned, I just don't understand it.

    Probably because last time we played in Lubbock it was a ghost town at halftime.

    Fair enough, but he's not talking about halftime attendance now, is he?

    Don't get me wrong, I only had a small gripe about the whole podcast. I was going to listen to just the Tech part but I ended up listening to the whole thing and I enjoyed it.

    haven't listened yet, but maybe Brent is just trying to get back for the TTech paper writers (or whoever they were) picking ISU 9th or 10th in the league this year. I'll try to find it, or maybe someone else will post it for me...

    First off, appreciate you listening.

    I (Brent) said they would get 50k or more. Iowa State isn't a huge draw and it is an early start. But yes, I do think you have a dedicated and passionate fan base. Much better than Baylor's.

    I might have misheard you, my fault. You're going to be surprised, I think ISU will be a sellout. Texas State is a terrible draw and it sold out. Don't take my griping the wrong way, I liked the podcast. It's much better than having to listen to The Horn every day like I do (ugh).

    No worries! I'm looking forward to the trip to Lubbock, love Jones stadium. And some of the best restaurants in the Big 12.

    With a 11:00a.m. game against Iowa State I'm not sure it will be a sellout. There will be more than 50K, but I don't think we're breaking any attendance records like we did against TCU.

    I think my favorite parts of the podcast were the central Iowa people saying that Lubbock people have no life and that Texas is better than Texas Tech.

    I'm not sure why people in Central Iowa(Ames 60,000ish) are taking shots about the people in Lubbock(250,000ish) having no life. Granted, I never get the whole "our college town is better than your college town" arguments that inevitably come up every year vs. every opponent.

    Lubbock is no Austin, but it's a metropolis compared to Ames.

    I don't really have a problem with them picking ISU to win. It should be a good game, and there are a lot of variables that are in Iowa State's favor. I expect ISU to come in and be more focused early. Rhoads will have them fired up and they usually execute their game plan well against Tech.

    Tech's defense is a lot better than their fans realize though. I think it hinges a lot on the QB. If Davis Webb gets the start and just starts throwing up prayers, Tech is going to have to overcome a lot of turnovers. No one has a clue what happens if Michael Brewer gets the start. Should be fun. Have a lot of respect for Rhoads, and hope the Cyclone fans that make the trip have a good time in Lubbock.

    First of all, I think it was me who threw out the 45-50 K number. I simply asked Brent because I've never been to Lubbock and he has. Thanks for your clarification.

    If it came off as us "taking every backhanded shot" possible at Tech, we certainly didn't mean for it to be that way. In our podcast, we are just a couple of guys chatting. This podcast is aimed to entertain Iowa State fans (this is CycloneFANATIC.COM) so from the opposition's standpoint, I can see why you might be rubbed the wrong way and for that, I sincerely apologize.

    Ever since I got back from Dallas (media day), I thought that Tech would be a sleeper in the league this year. Kingsbury and the boys have done nothing to make anybody think any differently. He's a hell of a coach - a guy who I think has a lot of similarities to Fred Hoiberg and the Iowa State hoops program. That's a great compliment by the way.

    And of course you won't get banned for this. We all have a right to disagree with one another. Best of luck on Saturday.

    I didn't know TTU was a real team until now. Thought they were 1AA.
