    Murph & Andy

    In comparison to the others in KXNO, Murph & Andy have been the most objective and have shown the most class. I think they get how we ISU are feeling and have taken no joy in the situation.

    Thanks guys. It's a sad spot we are in right now, and you have the right balance between the facts and empathy for your ISU audience. Good job.

    Re: Murph & Andy

    I totally agree the amount of class that Murph & Andy have shown through this entire situation has been second to none.

    Its unfortunate that I can't listen to them more often because they are on too early.

    Re: Murph & Andy

    The last segment about us and what we are looking for in coverage was spot on. Yesterday's attempt at defining advocacy was a joke from MP

    Re: Murph & Andy

    I do appreciate that they understand how Iowa State fans feel and that this all will affect their jobs also. They appreciate Iowa State and the athletic department how they handle and treat the media. Maybe some others at KXNO should learn from their professional coverage! Once their show is over it's time to switch to 810 WHB on the internet!

    True ... Also wish I could listen more often (too early)

    Of course it stands to reason, they're actual journalists.

    Re: Murph & Andy

    Its sad that you have to applaud a Des Moines radio host for showing class....... that should be the rule, not the exception. Always liked Murph and Andy and found Andy hilarious.

    Problem is it's rarely sports.
    Most of what I heard yesterday was about Andy's Broke back camping trip.

    I like 1700s lunch hour show.

    Which is what I like about it. I can only take so much hardcore sports analysis. I don't want in-depth analysis of teams I couldn't care less about.

    So I switch them on based on the love shown in this thread, and both just announced that Iowa-Nebraska will now be the biggest game, replacing ISU-Iowa...

    Don't mind this at all. Good for a few laughs. Andy is truly funny sometimes

    If ISU is not a major conference team, I don't know if I can disagree.

    Knowing what I know now, and from what I see from from HN - It is the Iowa fans that will build this NU rivalry up bigger than ISU. They will go out of their way to minimize ISU/UI

    Re: Murph & Andy

    They may be simpathetic, but I do not find them ISU patriots. For instance today they said they thought that it was too bad the ISU-EIU game will now take a second stage to the eiu-cornshucks, and it is too bad that ISU fans will now have to watch that. I for one will be watching the ISU game that weekend and whoever there opponent is . I wo'nt give that game the time of day and surely will not even know who won it.


    Best of luck
