    Jim Rome bashing Iowa

    Jim Rome is just bashing Iowa as callers are complaining that they don't cover Iowa. He said they cover good teams and Iowa is mediocore.

    I love it!!!

    He's been bashing Iowa since Captain Kirk turned down an interview request prior to the Orange Bowl vs. USC.

    Rome has had a chip on his shoulder ever since including saying something like "coaches like Kirk Ferentz are a dime a dozen."

    Exactly. Rome has an inferiority complex toward KF, in my opinion.

    It will be a great day when Rome no longer has a radio and TV outlet for his drivel.

    Yes, that guy is past annoying. I turn my radio on in the morning till he comes on. Then turn it back on when Miller comes on. Cant stand his voice, and those long pauses.

    He is the radio version of William Schatner.

    Re: Jim Rome bashing Iowa

    I discovered that once I turned 30 several years ago, my tolerance level for Jim Rome and his imature "clones" went to next to nothing and haven't listened since.

    Sure wished ESPN Radio was in Des Moines....

    I'm very close to getting Sirius for the car and home, which carries ESPN as well, but my biggest thing is that i'm sure I won't get a signal were I work and I cann't stream audio at work either.

    I don't know much about XM, but a guy in my fly in fishing party to Canada took his up there with some kind of attenna, and it worked great.

    Hawks were calling into Colin Cowheard today also complaining. What a joke, they don't understand that they are not a good team.

    Re: Jim Rome bashing Iowa

    I recall hearing that Rome wanted KF on after Iowa put a beat-down on Michigan in '02 at the big house, but after KF declined, Rome was all Ohio State the rest of that year. I had a similar experience Garn91, I was big into the Jungle in my late 20s, but then, it hit me how old the show gets with the various callers bashing one another etc... I also get annoyed by how Rome makes such a big deal about himself doing a tv show and a radio show. Big freaking deal! All he's doing is talking about sports for god sake! It's not like he's curing cancer or designing skyscrapers.


    I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.

    It was hilarious when Deace would make fun of Rome on his old KXNO show.
