    How was dickie v during the game?

    i loathe dickie v but was wondering what people thought of his commentary during the game. I was at a bar and couldn't hear the announcers.

    did he actually give good fair analysis of the game or did he just slop over michigan until the very end when we won.

    Was great IMO. Very complimentary of ISU. Clearly did his homework on both teams and talked up Hilton Magic a TON. It was basically a 2 hour long recruiting video for the Cyclones.

    Re: How was dickie v during the game?

    Dickie seemed to really enjoy himself, and gave Hilton, the fans, ISU, Hoiberg major props

    He did fawn all over Michigan 80% of the time, but it was great having him here in Ames

    I could hear him, but I was not listening.

    The few seconds I did care to listen, he was fantastic and very complimentary to ISU

    I watched the game on DVR last night after returning from the game. He was great.


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    Re: How was dickie v during the game?

    I was OK with the performance shortly after the game when he started blubbering about Michigan STATE. I've never seen an announcer in any sport get so mesmerized with the top 4-5 programs like Dick V can. He knows more about the top 5 any given point then he does the other 300+ teams put together.

    Re: How was dickie v during the game?

    I will say the crowd was great. They drown out Dick's voice for most of the game.

    If you didn't like Dickie V before, you will still not like him. Probably nothing anyone on this forum can say to change your mind. If you like good publicity for ISU, you will like the fact that he was here and enjoy the national exposure like the rest of us.

    Re: How was dickie v during the game?

    Wasn't too bad, very complimentary of Freddy and Hilton magic. Had a few moments where my brother and I exchanged a "what the **** is he talking about" look.

    Re: How was dickie v during the game?

    The crowd was loud enough most of the game to drown out his voice quite a bit. Now that he's been to Ames and Hilton, I will tolerate him a lot more than I used to. In general it was really a big deal finally getting a visit from him.

    Re: How was dickie v during the game?

    I normally can't stand him, but I didn't think he did a bad job yesterday. I also thought the crowd was drowning him out a lot. How loud was it inside? A couple people have told me they didn't think it was near what the Kansas game was last year. Sure seemed similar.

    Re: How was dickie v during the game?

    Look for Dickie's next few games. He has a habit of rehashing good experiences or venues on the air, on national TV

    I'm sure there will be many more ISU props from Dickie V as long as we keep winning

    Re: How was dickie v during the game?

    I could hear the play by play guy clearly, even with the great crowd noise, but I had a hard time making out 50% of what Dickie was saying. His voice seemed kind of muffled. He was OK toward ISU, but talked more about MI until the last three minutes.
    I was surprised that he brought up the infamous Johnny Orr interview when Johnny told him he 'kick his a.. when he was at MI". I could not believe that he tried to say his Detroit team cost Johnny a national championship. Did I hear that right?

    Yes, you did. And then he started going off on a tangent and the other guy quickly changed the subject and helped guide him back on course.

    Other than that, I thought he did a great job.
