    Our championship getting no love!!!

    I've been watching highlights and analysts this morning and last night. I have struggled to even see any highlights of the Big 12 championship game. There also hasn't been any mention of Iowa State in seeding analysis. I guess winning a tournament in what everyone says is the best conference in the country, and finishing very well in the regular season doesn't matter. We also went undefeated in our non-conference and not playing a cake schedule. I guess the only thing that matters is the Big 10 and the ACC, I know that there is a bias, but this is getting pathetic. Sorry for the rant, but I had to vent a bit.

    I will initiate a boycott of TV in general, email JP, and pen an open letter immediately!


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    Re: Our championship getting no love!!!

    Highlights have been on ESPN several times, just remember it's also Selection Sunday. That in its self takes a lot of coverage away. I don't think we're being snubbed at all...it's still the 2nd "featured" item in the middle on ESPN.com

    John Ritter used to worry that nobody was paying enough attention to Three's Company. He's dead now. That's a cautionary tale if I've ever heard one.

    Re: Our championship getting no love!!!

    There is a channel called ESPN, it's 206 on DirecTV. They are heavy on sports. You should check it out, they showed ISU highlights this a.m. and gave a mention on the seeding talk among Davis, Digger, Jay Williams and Bilas (those are all basketball experts for ESPN).

    You're welcome.

    Don't know what you are talking about. Turned on ESPN and first thing I see is Iowa State highlights. Watched last night and they showed plenty.

    Only because the Big Ten and ACC ships are on today

    Re: Our championship getting no love!!!

    It's because you won it when you beat KU. Your fans had the most impressive display of any fan base this year. I've seen many guys comment on how good it was. Also many now saying you bumped KU to a 3 seed which is peculiar (both should be twos). Just please don't pull an Mizery from 2 years ago please!

    This is my biggest fear. Can't let that happen. Would be even worse if we are the first program in history to lose as a 2 seed twice.

    Re: Our championship getting no love!!!

    Dumb. Plenty of coverage. Most discussions on espn are about who will get 1 seeds, which is to be expected. We have been in the rotation of topics on sports center since last night, and are still in it now.

    What are you watching to see this lack of coverage? CNN?

    I guess I haven't been watching it solid. My fiance got tired of watching basketball all the time, so we would change channels some. I must turn the channels at the wrong times.

    Re: Our championship getting no love!!!

    Thought there has been decent coverage. Problem is most people don't think much of the conference tourny's. They are a waste of time in my book. Wish they would get 96 teams to start this week and have it be a double elimination round robin playin type tourney. Top 16 seeds host 6 teams on their campus's. What a party, especially for the little guy's...Find a real National Champion.

    Getting no love at ALL. Except from, like, a hundred million happy Cyclone fans. Oh, and then there's those guys on the wide world of sports channel on the TV giving us a bunch of love, but other than that NO ONE!!!

    Re: Our championship getting no love!!!

    You must have missed the part this morning where Digger Phelps was raving about "The three states: Wichita State, Michigan State, and IOWA STATE!!" Where Digger said that those three teams will end up in Dallas.
