    Today's Miller & Deace

    Why are they wasting the first hour of the show talking about a TV show that many of us have never seen? A show that is routinely whipped in the ratings by American Idol. I only tune in to hear them bash Iowa and ISU basketball after one or both of them lose. It is one thing to spend 5 minutes on an off topic thing like "Lost", but the first hour of a two hour show??? In the words of Ed Lover "C'mon Son!"

    Because LOST is a better product than basketball in the state outside of Cedar Falls.


    As for getting whipped by American Idol, what can I say, the majority of Americans would rather watch bad singing and acting in favor of a show that might take some cognitive thinking to understand.

    Re: Today's Miller & Deace

    I'd be willing to wager that there are more ISU alums in-state than Iowa alums. Deace is mostly right, right now, but ISU basketball could recover just fine.

    We don't have a systemic issue, we have a ridiculous contract.

    I'm not in the mood to call in, but Steve went on about all the facilities we've improved, all the increases in NCC membership, all the increases in ticket sales, and how if we don't have the money, something is internally screwed up with our athletic department.

    Well, we dumped a bunch of money in the past 2 years into long term improvements. It's going to take a little while for that to pay off you know? Couple it with the contract from hell and it's not that we CAN'T do it, it's just that it might not be the most economical option.

    Re: Today's Miller & Deace

    After being at the game last night, and the feeling I had when I left Hilton, I am glad they talked about Lost for the first hour of the show.

    Besides if you do not like listening to them, flip over to Van and Bonnie. Maybe they have a topic you will like.

    Re: Today's Miller & Deace

    Pretty big waste of time to talk for an hour about a scripted TV show.

    Not that talking about ISU basketball is a much better proposition, but they would have been better off breaking down the NFL draft prospects.....again.

    Re: Today's Miller & Deace

    They have talked local basketball to death now. The LOST segment is my favorite segment of the week. And I know a lot of LOST fans that are non-sports fans download their podcast each week. So I think they are doing just fine with that segment.

    As for Deace's opinion, I think he is dead on today. There is no reason to bring this back for a 5th year. None. Unless its a money issue...and that's a much, much bigger problem.

    At the same time, I'm sure their listeners that watch LOST don't mind the banter. Maybe they even look forward to it......... Hmmmmm, what am I talking about?

    Re: Today's Miller & Deace

    Lost got an hour today, and the ISU MBB team is getting an hour today. Given the tenor of the MBB discussion, which is obvious, do you actually want MORE of that?

    I just don't see how anybody can complain about LOST, when you discuss it once a week.

    And I don't even listen to the show!!!

    Jon, I love the Lost segment, stoked that it's an hour today!!

    It's too bad that our DVR recorded the end of the ISU/MU last game, so now I get to relive the awesomeness that was the season everytime I watch this episode...

    I think it was. I called in too, and I rarely call in.

    Yes, actually. When guys like you are blasting what's going on, it turns the heat up. We need more heat.
