    Blum on the Call

    Now guys don't get me wrong I love me some Hefty, but I think Blum does a darn good call for the men (and pxp for women). He just sounds a little more comfortable on the mic. I know, I know, I shouldn't be boosting his ego , but him and the Godfather compliment each other very well. Anyway, good job overall and thanks for adding a little humor when things looked dicey Blum.

    Heft, Blum, Doc Sadler, Troy Davis, and Larry Eustachy at 3:00am circa 2003 would all have done a better job than the ESPN2 color guy.

    Re: Blum on the Call

    Any comments from Blum on some of the more curious calls by the men in stripes today?

    Re: Blum on the Call

    Yeah lol. I didnt quite catch who he was talking about but JW got quite a laugh and said "hopefully Mike knows we're just having fun"*(or joking, I don't remember.) Blum had a couple of good zingers but great input on the game more importantly

    Re: Blum on the Call

    I love Blum as play-by-play, but will always want an ex-player to be the analyst, for their insight.

    I have a soft spot for LaPhonso because I watched him on the Timberwolves as a kid, but yea, he's not great.

    He was def fun to watch as a player, but from listening to him he hasn't watched much ISU bball this year.

    Ill take Blum over JW all day, any day.

    Its refreshing hearing an pxp guy who understands officiating and the rules of the game.

    Re: Blum on the Call

    For a guy that can barely see over the table, Blum does a nice job.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Re: Blum on the Call

    Not ready to give him the mic permanently, but Blum did well. His wealth of information that normal people don't know really serves him well. And for the most part, he seemed comfortable and a good counterpart to JW. Their handoffs were pretty smooth.
