    Fox Sports Midwest ISU Football Preview

    I see it is on at 5PM today. Has anyone seen this yet? I am going to DVR it. It looks like they are running all of the North today.

    Mostly optimistic. It's worth watching just for the interviews with Rhoads, Austen and Frere.

    Re: Fox Sports Midwest ISU Football Preview

    It's been on several times. Their format for all these previews is:

    *Segment on featured team with interviews from Big 12 media day
    *Segment on other division teams
    *Segment of alleged "experts" talking about featured team

    Didn't get a chance to watch it. Anything interesting?

    Re: Fox Sports Midwest ISU Football Preview

    Not really... Your typical hype up any team by talking about the changes and hopes of the team. Then preview opponents, then expert talk. No criticizing of teams, no real digging into anything.

    Just your typical (we don't want to offend anyone) preview show, with no real opinion.

    Re: Fox Sports Midwest ISU Football Preview

    It was fine until the "experts" started to talk. When you keep calling a certain someone "Arnude" I tend to think you know nothing about the team other than what you read in the media guide.

    You've got that right cycloneroyce. I am a former play-by-play guy myself (until my wife told me to go out and get a 'real' job) and do a lot of PA work for various sports and one thing I do without fail is double check all pronunciations. It amazes me that some of these morons are making the kind of money they are and won't take the time to do a little home work.

    Where was I when these guys landed their jobs?

    I'm pretty sure their two "experts" are Josh Freeman's dad and Carson/Chase Coffman's dad. Nice work, Fox.

    If you missed it, don't waste your time.

    Re: Fox Sports Midwest ISU Football Preview

    Can you imagine that these two guys even watched an ISU game last year or even watched some replays to prepare for this show? I don't remember any announcers calling him 'Arnood'...seriously, what a joke.
