    We have a good crew who seems to tell it like it is. That's rare in today's game.

    Re: John Walters Appreciation Thread

    When he first came to the scene, I was a bit disappointed. But now he has become an A+++ announcer. Tremendous.

    A couple of years ago, I heard about a system that did this, fairly inexpensively. Sorry, I can't remember the name. IT was some device that went between your TV and cable box. Kind of like a mini DVR that you could set the video delay on.

    John and Eric do a great job of describing the game. You don't have to listen to many other broadcast teams to realize just how good they are.

    Re: John Walters Appreciation Thread

    I grew up just south of Ames listening Pete, I never thought it would be the same after him. BUT I love listening to John, I will only listen to the Cyclone radio broadcast whether I have the TV on or not. We are VERY lucky and I'd wager that the strength of our radio coverage is part of the reason we have such a loyal fanbase that gets excited about our teams.

    Re: John Walters Appreciation Thread

    It's great that he gets to finally call some winners, because he's received a lot of swift kicks to the nuts having to call a lot of ISU games (and you can hear it on the radio every time he's receiving one).


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?

    What did it sound like when they called back Marquis Hamilton's TD?
