    The color guy was horrible.

    Can't we find a decent color guy for these games? If I had to hear another plow horse reference, I was going to scream. Did anyone see a pyramid on the floor? According to him, Taylor "literally" had the team on his back.

    We went through a carousel of bad color commentators last year, and it looks like we're in for another year of annoyance. Oh well, here comes another year of a muted TV and John Walters on the radio.

    Re: The color guy was horrible.

    I don't think he was terrible, but I will admit that something better needs to happen....with the crappy TV feed and lighting, it looked like a B-rated movie production...but if we win then by all means keep it up!

    He did refer to us as the "Iowa Cyclones"
    and repeatedly mispronounced Monson's name.

    Re: The color guy was horrible.

    I thought MN announcers on Full Court were actually very good (minus the Yah Sure Ya Betcha Dont Ya Know MN Accent). They did a great job of unbiased announcing. If it wasn't for the accent, and the Big11 logo over the score, I wouldn't have been able to tell what side was calling the game.

    Did you hear him call Taylor "SPE-cial" there at the end? If he can "literally" carry an entire roster of 17 guys on his back, he must be...

    Re: The color guy was horrible.

    Amen! The color guy also seemed happy when the goophers made their runs. I don't want that in an ISU telecast.

    I heard Hallihan on one game the other night, I thought he was great, can't we sign him up?

    Re: The color guy was horrible.

    Hallihan was very good....my only suggestion for him is that he is a little too thorough and redundant, but a great guy, great character and i would take him again.

    Re: The color guy was horrible.

    Did anyone else notice that the color guy sounded EXACTLY like the guy who does color on the ESPN World Series of Poker broadcasts!?

    Re: The color guy was horrible.

    I got sick of the thing he kept repeating about every 3 minutes "Iowa State has only 8 scholarship players, 4 of them returning." I bet he said that a dozen times in the second half! Like we didn't hear you the first few times...

    Re: The color guy was horrible.

    Did anyone notice how the color guy kept talking about HIM and where HE's coached and WHO he knows.....get a life, we don't care about some washed up coach that can't hack it as an announcer

    Re: The color guy was horrible.

    Was it just me or did his voice and coments remind you of the guy who does the poker tournaments? I swear they are related.

    Leave it to Whitey to complain about the Color guy.
