    1st State of the Nations on Tonight

    @ 8:30 pm on the Connections Channel

    It will also air Friday at 7pm, Saturday at 11am

    We will be back on 8/21 and begin our weekly tapings, through April. Thanks to those of you that email the folks there to let them know its something you enjoy and wanted to see back. Hard to believe this will be the fourth year.

    This year, we are doing a number of new twists...starting with Deace delivering the State of the Hawkeye Nation, and me doing the same for ISU. I think this is bound to be pretty edgy....and Deace came out guns blazing today. I shot back pretty hard, so the sparks were flying and we were just in our first show.

    Should be a fun year.

    Fortunately, I'm no longer a prisoner of Mediacom. I miss this show from time to time, but my respect for Deace has fallen straight through the ground.

    I just can't find myself watching it as long as Deace is the so called 'voice of the Cyclone Nation'.

    Agreed. Voice of the cyclones should not like Michigan more than ISU.

    I agree, that if you could get this off on something other than a Mediacrap channel you might actually get some viewers in the area.

    I agree. I'd rather watch Jon discuss the Hawks than Steve discuss the Cyclones.

    Sorry Jon, I just refuse to do it. And fortunately, I don't even have the opportunity to tune in.

    Yeah, I enjoy the show but Jon gives ISU more props than the guy that looks like the Kool-Aid mascot.

    State of the Nations, Cyclone Replay, and classic Cyclone games on Mediacom Channel 22 are the only things keeping me from switching over to Direct TV.

    Re: 1st State of the Nations on Tonight

    our Voice of the Cyclone Nation predicted that ISU would go 0-12 last year. He also said EIU was better than ISU at every single position.

    Too bad we can't nominate a real Cyclone for the job.

    Re: 1st State of the Nations on Tonight

    I enjoy the show. I don't know much about Deace's background or quite understand the level of hate, but I think it's pretty apparent that he follows ISU at least some and college sports quite a bit. I don't agree with everything that he says, but I don't have to to be able to enjoy it.

    He said this, word-for-word, on CycloneNation - the site he used to run. The only modification was to put the text with his photo, slap a Michigan logo on his chest (it's probably there anyways) and put the last part of the quote in bold red text.




    Now keep in mind, that unimportant "offseason football stuff" for ISU that he was referring to, was during the Chizik's first year off-season.

    Doesn't seem like it takes much for the job... We're talking about a TV show by some bloggers/hack it radio personalities... And it's on basically a public access station.....

    I'd like to see a quality local sports TV show that actually talks about games...

    Some people like Soundoff, but they tend to talk more about the fans and issues surrounding the games and hyping up the games for next week... I'd like it better if they actual would talk about something relevant to the game, instead we get fans say "ISU sucks" or "Fire Chizik" or whatever.

    I don't understand what would be hard about having a 30-45 minute TV show on a regular station that talks about actual games. Not these coaches shows where they kiss up, but has actual opinions and thoughts.

    Perhaps this State of Nations would be more like that (I've never seen in), but this Deace guy sounds like he doesn't really know anything.
