    FOX 17 ISU/UNI Broadcast

    Who were those stiffs?

    I can safely say the play by play was the worst I have ever heard.

    Was it just me?

    It was one of the worst. Huge UNI homers.


    ISU goes on a 12-0 run and they're showing UNI highlights from before the run.

    McCausland has always been bad, but the play by play guy needs to find a new line of work. Also, seriously could the picture have been any worse?

    I already mentioned it in the post-game thread but the entire broadcast was horrible for multiple reasons. The only bright spot was the outcome of the game.

    did anyone happen to stream in the hawaii game? those two guys were hilarious. I didn't see the fox 17 broadcast, but then again, anything related to fox usually turns my stomach.


    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.

    what do you expect for an away game?

    The color is often used for Hawkeye games... the pxp... not sure.

    Honestly, they were bad.. very bad. it seemed like they couldn't wait for UNI to pull ahead or win that game... but we weren't playing in our house with our TV guys... so when I use that logic, it didn't bother me.. just made me laugh.

    Re: FOX 17 ISU/UNI Broadcast

    Posted this in the gameday thread...

    I don't know about the play by play guy, but Mac McCausland (color) is typically the color commentator for Iowa basketball. Its no surprise he's a huge hawkeye homer. I couldn't listen to their crap anymore, it was one of the WORST commentating brodcast I have heard in a long time, (probably since the last time I had to listen to McCausland commentate a ISU game) Their shots toward the ISU football team were uncalled and unprofessional, IMO. But honestly, it was about what I expected.

    I muted them and I listened to Walters on the radio instead, much better

    Re: FOX 17 ISU/UNI Broadcast

    honestly the commentators didn't bother me that much ... what did was the constant closeups of players that occured at inopportune times, like as a players is driving to the basket and they cut to a close up of some guy sitting on the other end.

    Re: FOX 17 ISU/UNI Broadcast

    I was a bit annoyed by the highlights as well. It was a little hard for me to hear the play by play, the kids were loaded up with sugar last night, but it sounds like all I missed was back handed comments about Iowa State anyway.

    Re: FOX 17 ISU/UNI Broadcast

    It was UNI's broadcast, if it were in Ames they would have used CTN guys and would have been on 5.
    He did make a ton of mistakes though, said was Lucca's first start, etc.

    I might be wrong, but I thought I remember McCausland doing the game last year in Ames too, IDK maybe his craptastic commentating was just seared into my mind from 2 years ago and I am remembering wrong

    They were bad, homers or not. You expect homer announcers on the road, but I would have been disappointed even if I was a UNI fan.

    My favorite was when we went on that 12-0 run and they managed to play all UNI highlights immediately afterward.
