    no love from ESPN

    I was just watching ESPNEWS and they had a story about Shula getting fired at Alabama. They then segued into Dantonio getting the job from Sparty. Then they go on to .... the NFL.

    Why no coverage of a truly huge hire? Is somebody in the AD's office in charge of sending footage of this national outlets? JP put on a good show tonight at Hilton to introduce a big name head coach, much bigger than Dantonio. Why no coverage?

    Re: no love from ESPN

    They talked about a little bit this afternoon, but not a lot.



    “One day we’ll be in here celebrating a Big 12 championship,” Rhoads said. “That I can promise you.”

    "I hope to coach here until I retire," Hoiberg said.

    So what, ESPN sucks for ISU coverage. That is just how it is.

    Re: no love from ESPN

    Good question...I thought that at least with the Texas tie (they have the elite pedigree to warrant coverage on ESPN as opposed to our sickly little insignificant program or a new coach from Central Michigan or was it Western Michigan or was it Eastern Michigan?) there would be something. Oh well, I guess as long as some of those 4- and 5-star Texas and Florida recruits like the flavor of his Kool-Aid and come to Ames, I don't care!

    Re: no love from ESPN

    It's because Iowa State doesnt' carry the market share that those other teams do. I'm sure there will be ample coverage over the next few days and months.

    I used to have the obligatory feelings of "ISU Inadequacy Syndrome", but you have to understand that it's a big thing in Iowa, but not a big deal in Peoria. That will hopefully change soon as our program moves to a more prominent national status.

    Even still, a name like Chizik would warrant such coverage IMO...

    On a day to day news show, like Sportscenter, it probably won't be much more than a blip. Get a full football show, and I am sure they will talk about it. However, you are right.....the Alabama and Miami openings are going to dominate the news for a while.

    I don't think I'd go that far.....Dantonio was also the D-Coordinator of a National Championship Buckeyes Squad and turned around the Cincinnati program. Yes, a great hire for us, but at this point really no better than MSU.

    Re: no love from ESPN

    And Shula getting fired at Alabama is big news in Peoria?

    Re: no love from ESPN

    From Wikipedia:

    The saying, "Will it play in Peoria?" is traditionally used to ask whether a given product, person, promotional theme or event will appeal to mainstream (also called "Main Street") America, or across a broad range of demographic/psychographic groups.

    Re: no love from ESPN

    I noticed that too, you would think either A) Chizik himself B) His ties or C) Pollard's extravagant entrance theatrics would warrant some attention.

    Then again, they could be revolting against Pollard for completely throwing them for a loop. I heard ESPN "expert" Mark Schlabach say "Iowa State WILL announce Brian Kelly as their new head coach. Obviously Schlabach WILL need to re-evaluate his sources.

    Re: no love from ESPN

    they actually had decent coverage this afternoon on ESPN NEWS (Ch 22 on Mediacom). They mentioned Chizik being the replacement and the fact hat we have had only 2 winning seasons since 2002 (they actually had a visual of each of our seasons and the overall and conference records we put up - seeing the 2003 season going 2-10 hurt-) it hurt to have them mention that we were only 13-25 against the big XII in that time. Not the best mention you can get on ESPN but hey its something.

    Re: no love from ESPN

    ESPN finally put a link to the story on the front page of their site....albeit a small one. Next to the link about MSU's new coach.

    Re: no love from ESPN

    Nice little blip on sportscenter following MNF, and that is tough to get on because they throw so much into MNF.


    When I told the folks back home I was going to Auchtermuchty, they said "Wear the Fox Hat"
