    Email to KXNO about JDMiller...

    I think we should send an email or letter to KXNO/Clear Channel about getting Jon Miller a Cyclone counterpart on his show. I think he's decent, but if you're in love with the Hawks, then you'll automatically spin everything toward the Hawkeye point of view even if you THINK you're not. Anyway, I doubt a letter/email would do anygood, but maybe if enough of us got on board they may at least think about it. Thoughts? Has someone already done this?

    Re: Email to KXNO about JDMiller...

    i think he has been doin a good job


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    He's been doing better then I expected, but I just think the show would be better with a Cyclone in on the discussions as well.

    Anytime we don't agree with what he's saying we'll demand an ISU balance on the show.

    While I don't agree with him, I think we're going a bit over the top with this.

    Re: Email to KXNO about JDMiller...

    I think he'll play the part of the "middle of the road, down to earth Hawk fan" until something like this comes up. But if we Cyclones devalue anything Hawkeye, or challenge the Hawk status quo, you'll see the fangs come out. It will happen again very soon as I don't think Pollard buys in to that "Hawkeye State" line of thinking. Someone should make a chronological list of what Pollard has done since coming to Ames..what..a year ago?? What he has done is truly amazing!!!! Support his vision!!

    Re: Email to KXNO about JDMiller...

    Did you also want to send in a letter asking for a Hawkeye co-host when Deace had his show and provided a slant from the Cyclone point of view? I think it's time to settle down. If you don't agree with a viewpoint, call in and bring another perspective. Or don't listen. For all the people that said they wouldn't listen to KXNO when the programming changes were made last year, there sure is still alot of complaining about what happens on those shows.

    Actually, the thing about Deace is that you knew he was a Michigan fan. He doesn't bleed cardinal and gold. So, that's the point.

    Exactly, I think Cyclone fans need to look away from the Hawks, and quit worrying about them and what they think/do. IF we support Pollards plan, and the plan ultimatly works, in time, the Hawks will be our red-headed step child. But for the plan to work, we need to quit worrying about the Hawks, and focus on our program, and help our program in ANY way possible!

    Re: Email to KXNO about JDMiller...

    Folks,

    I do understand that some of the things I will say will not be welcomed by Cyclone fans. I have enjoyed it when I am on the same side of an issue that you are, and I have enjoyed it when I am on the other side of it.

    Whether or not you like my topic, my slant, or even me on the radio, it's OK. You are free to feel what you want to feel, and that is a part of this job. I knew that when I signed on.

    One thing that I am going to endeavor to do is to present a topic, in advance, to the side that might not care for it, just like I did with the things I discussed the past two days. I spoke with Malchow, and emailed both he and Pollard, asking them some questions, giving them a chance to comment, and also telling them what I was going to talk about. I did that so they would hear it from me, before they heard it from anyone else. So that someone didn't run into their office saying, 'You won't believe what Miller is saying', and so they can say, 'Yes, we already know. We spoke with him before he said it.'

    I think that is a fair way to do my job.

    So while some ISU fans will bristle if my opinions are viewed as being pro-Hawkeye, and at times they are going to be, without a doubt, I can live with that. Because I honestly do like the folks in Ames, otherwise I wouldn't pay them the respect in letting them know in advance that I will be talking about something they will certainly hear about.

    Someone should make a chronological list of what Pollard has done since coming to Ames..what..a year ago?? What he has done is truly amazing!!!! Support his vision!!
    Ken Miller did something like this last week on the Marty and Miller show.

    -Replaces Morgan, hires McDermott
    -Moves Cael to HC of the Wrestling program
    -Presents the Master Facilities plan in early summer, gets it approved
    -Puts up a Billboard in Eastern Iowa
    -Sells 30,000+ season tickets for football (discounts Endzone, sells hillside on a season ticket basis)
    -Renovates Hilton to some degree, gets a scoreboard that keeps score.
    -Accepts McCarney's "Resignation"
    -Hires Gene Chizik
    -Starts selling season tickets to FB in January
    -Get's more air time and ink in 15 months than anyone dreamed about

    I am sure Jamie Pollard took your "noble" gesture of informing him of your opinion and placed it where it rightly belonged.

    Thanks Jon. I guess my whole point is that I think the show would be better if you had a Cyclone counterpart. That's all I'm really saying.
