    Jim Rome

    Just caught the tail end of his rant in the last segment... Ripping into Auburn BIG TIME for replacing Tuberville with Chizik. He doesn't understand how they replace Tuberville with someone worse. "If they had someone better in mind, fine. But they clearly didn't".

    Re: Jim Rome

    He's been at Auburn all day, lots of emails ripping Auburn too, many from Nick Saban lol. One of the worst hires he can remember, hiring a guy on a 10 game losing streak.

    I hope his rant didn't include any negative references to ISU - our lack of tradition, can't win, coaching graveyard, etc. You gotta think banging on Gene can also bring us unwarranted criticism to us.

    At this point, I like to think that all ties with him have been severed.

    Only thing he talked about with ISU and Gene was the 10 game losing streak that didn't include Oklahoma, Texas, or Texas Tech.

    The rest was all ripping Auburn and then he talked about Barkley's comments.

    Good about not banging on us to hard. I'm sorry to see Barkley's race comments, but then maybe he's on to something with Auburn's history; especially with their BBall hire.

    PS: Barkely is on record saying he will run for 'Bama Gov in 2014 - he's required by law to have at least 7 years residency.

    Re: Jim Rome

    "Dear Auburn,
    Thank You

    Signed,
    Iowa State"


    O well, Bama fan got a lot of shots off at Auburn today.

    I just got to work when Barkley was supposed to go on. Any idea what he said?

    Re: Jim Rome

    Here I'll sum it up for you:


    Alabama is filled with racists and Chizik is a joke.

    The country shouldn't wouldn't consider this if the media keeps bailing out Chizik...saying stuff like "he only went 5-19, but he was at Iowa State..."

    That kills recruiting in a big way...

    Re: Jim Rome

    I really hope they can focus on him being a bad coach vs. our lack of tradition...Mac's 5 bowl games in 6 years line is something that needs to be thrown out there to ESPN, Rome, etc. to help us save some face!

    Everyone that knows anything about football knows that ISU sucks in football. It's not something you can really hide.
