    I AM SO LIVID AND OUTRAGED!

    How was this game against a instate team not on regular tv? Or at least a ESPN channel, then i see a grand total of 2!...TWO FRICKIN ISU games are on regular tv or ESPN...THIS YEAR! That is unbelivable! Pollard sell his soul to Mediacon or what? I figured with the team we got this yr ISU would come out of the bronze age to...uhhh... say the horse and buggy days....... and have their games on tv so the whole state can watch. With Iowa terrible and the best Clone team in yrs this is inexcusable! Im sure some, if not most on here remember Murphy back in the 90's doing the Hoiberg, Meyer, Julius etc...games. Now 2 decades later we go back to the 70's? I had this same rant last yr cant belive it hasn't changed.

    Re: I AM SO LIVID AND OUTRAGED!

    Yeah, because everyone outside of Iowa would just LOVE to see an ISU team that won four Big 12 games last year play Drake.

    Re: I AM SO LIVID AND OUTRAGED!

    What are you talking about? They have 8 games on Mediacom or "non regular tv" as you call it, but everything else is.

    Re: I AM SO LIVID AND OUTRAGED!

    You must not live in the area (?) because all the Big 12 games are on the local ABC. That would suck to not be able to watch this team play.

    Des Moines has how many oddball channels now?

    kwcy, kijuy, juhy, kdsm, even iptv could air it. I stated mainly Iowa channels could have picked it up. OR a ESPN channel would have nice. I relize the entire nation was waiting with uncontrollable excitement for the Iowa- Duqunse game, so that one is understandable.

    Why is the picture quality on Mediacom so freaking terrible? It is insulting in this day and age. He had better picture quality in the 70s. Is there anything that can be done? I mean it is just pathetic that in 2009 this is the picture quality we get for ISu basketball. Meanwhile, the crappy Hawks will play a crap load of games in HB.

    Re: I AM SO LIVID AND OUTRAGED!

    We we won 4 in conference last year, had a losing season, have lost to Drake 3 times in a row.
    Combine that with the local tv did not buy several games because the could not get enough advertising sold. Probably a combination of both the economy and our past recent past records

    Yes the picture quality stunk. However, this game was sold by Drake to Mediacom.
    At least Mediacom stepped up to broadcast it. I can make my own list of frustrations with Mediacom, but at least the do have a local coverage committment.

    If they had not stepped up, we would not have anything.

    As far as gettign the other games covered, winning (and name) drives advertisers.

    Re: I AM SO LIVID AND OUTRAGED!

    A couple of things, first if you aren't nearby you can get Full Court which shows a lot of games. It used to be almost every single one, but now its most of them. Second, selling WOI was the stupidest idea. Not that it has a big broadcast signal, but still..

    We have been horrid for three straight years and this season you expect ISU to be on National TV on a regular basis? Get a grip...winning on a regular basis year in and year out is what gets you on National TV.



    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.
