    Re: Ken Miller KXNO ripping us

    Iowa State already has a 4-star receiver on the roster with an offer list that was full of traditional programs: D'Vario Montgomery - Yahoo! Sports

    Maybe they should be talking about why good football players are coming here instead of why good football players are coming here.

    Re: Ken Miller KXNO ripping us

    It is kind of ironic how the media carries the "Iowa State will NEVER be good in football - they'll never get quality players to Ames" meme.

    Then when a quality player DOES commit to ISU they get all, "Why doesn't he pick Notre Dame or Iowa?" on us.


    No matter what, I could NEVER cheer for Dirt and Urine.

    If Miller starts singing ISU praises, then it's time to be truly concerned.
    Actually...then everyone on here would think he is awesome and knows his stuff.

    Nexus - The bias of most Iowa media types is . . . .ISU is NOT WORTHY to "be good" in modern football BECAUSE of what happened in the last century. That argument is really getting old to most true ISU fans. They blatantly dismiss what ISU has accomplished in the last 15 years in football compared to what it once was. They also ignore what programs ISU had to recruit and compete against versus the pathetically weak Big 10-11-12 (or whatever they call themselves now).

    Secondly, predominant sportscasters in this state have EITHER graduated from Iowa OR MUST publically proclaim allegiance to Hawkeye Nation (in some cases passing the Shibboleth test - that is . . . public scorn, humor, foolish headlines, ignoring, marginalization, and open ridicule of ISU football. The ole' "we know how pathetic ISU football has been . . . lipstick on a pig . . . . no Jan 1 bowls . . . mistaken 'Clowns' comment, etc.."

    You are correct.

    Radio sucks and has for the last 10 years. (thank you Janet Jackson) They have pushed the talented well paid professionals out of the profession and replaced them with $10/hr no talent trolls. I believe I'm being very generous in saying $10/hr. They are just bitter, underpaid DJ's that go home and drink themselves to sleep in the hell they've surrounded themselves in. Take them for that and you'll learn to listen to them in the context of comedy radio.


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

    Exactly right.

    Radio is dying just like print, and just like print that leaves the hacks to take **** wages to do it.

    I remember living in Des Moines listening to Steve Deace (sports, not bible thumping) and thinking how remarkable it was that he was so good and everyone else locally was so bad. Why any of you DSM guys would listen to local hacks is beyond me.


    RIP Janice

The press conference has been completely blown out of proportion because the Reg and radio types like M & A and M & B don't like be called out for hounding and singling out an 18-yr-old kid.
    Yeah, they got a little butthurt from CPR's statements, but I still think a lot of it has to do with a success story at ISU football. All of these guys are happy to tell ISU how sweet we are, we're doing a good job, as long as ISU is still a mid pack, struggling to recruit football team. Even in years we beat Iowa, they still feel superior and blame it on some fluke. When something like AL committing to ISU happens, it pisses them off because they just don't understand it. They honestly can't believe why a kid would choose ISU over any other school, especially Iowa. When I hear the hawkeye name thrown around with Notre Dame, Alabama, it makes me laugh my *** off.

    I think as much of the butthurt comes from Hawkeye entitlement as it does actually being ****** about AL being off limits. Iowa State can't do this, they are Iowa State.

    Re: Ken Miller KXNO ripping us

    Miller and Brinson brought up this topic an hour into their show Wednesday, so it was not near as the taking point that it was yesterday.

    If you don't think they all read message boards, find the most takes about subjects, and then try and create buzz for people to listen and call into their show, then your stupid.

    The fact that there is a thread on CF about this means that they have won.

    Re: Ken Miller KXNO ripping us

    Miller's an *** and I haven't to him for years so I really don't care what he thinks. I actually think Murph and Andy are pretty fair and neutral, and while I don't really agree with them in this case, I get why they're upset. I just won't listen to them till Monday and problem solved.

    Re: Ken Miller KXNO ripping us

    Not in Iowa so don't know the specific comments.

    But any comparison of Mac and CPR is silly. As just one objective measure, I believe CPR has had more upset victories in his coaching career than Mac had in twice as many years. And I liked Mac. Not trying to rip on him at all and happy he found success at NT. But CPR is a better coach (and recruiter) during a much more difficult competitive landscape.
