    Horrible Announcing

    Did anybody pay attention to how many things were messed up during the telecast today. They had Taufouu's picture on the screen when "Mike Branson" was punting. They mixed up James Smith and Sed Johnson the entire first half (both wear #2). They said Tiller was a redshirt freshman from San Diego. Also, one of the announcers said "despite the Cyclones success, it hasn't translated into momentum in recruiting." I literally muted the game at the 4 minute mark of the 2nd quarter so I don't know what else I missed. NO RESPECT!!!

    Re: Horrible Announcing

    Well also one of them yelled, "Horse Collar!!" at the end of the blocked field goal run. I don't know just struck me as an unbiased statement from the announcer.

    Re: Horrible Announcing

    agreed, it was hard to listen to them talk about the blackshirts, make mistakes, no reporting on apparent injuries, etc. Iowa State definitely forced some turnovers and Nebraska had some give aways. My count - Iowa State 6 take aways- Nebraska 2 give aways. Got a little old hearing about how Nebraska was shooting themselves in the foot versus giving credit for a very tenacious defensive effort.

    That all said, I am very glad it was on TV and I don't care who the announcers are as long as I get to see the game.

    Re: Horrible Announcing

    If they have a roster in front of them can't they see that #2 Johnson is a WR and #2 Smith is a saftey? And they still can't pronounce Arnaud's name. Pathetic.

    Re: Horrible Announcing

    I thought it was funny how on one of the reviews (which the play was upheld) one announcer said it was a "classic waste of time."

    The announcers aren't responsible for the graphics that are put on the screen, but I did think that Brandter had spent some time in the tanning booth. They said Tiller was from San Antonio, not San Diego. I don't know if that's right, but thats what they said.

    Besides the fact that it should have been a penalty, you mean? That was pretty blatant, and the officials missed it.

    Re: Horrible Announcing

    The color announcer is horrible. I had to look him up and see if he was a Nebby graduate or not. Theyve done many ISU games in the past. He is bad, as is the side line ******.
