    -Steve Deace





    Whatever Steve.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    I wouldn't call us a "loser", but our schedule just got MUCH more difficult.

    Tip #1 for talk show hosts, know your audience. Tip #2, don't insult them.

    One more reason not to listen to anything on KXNO except for Murph and Andy.

    And I don't listen to Murph and Andy for sports information, but just to see what insanely random topic they are talking about this day.

    I think he was comparing them to the rest of the teams. I personally don't see how making more money and still being in a BCS conference is all that terrible.

    Deace

    Deace is saying this morning that Iowa State is the only remaining Big 12 school to come out a loser on the latest deal.

    It's amazing how he's turned an extra $7-$10 million dollars/year ifor ISU nto a bad thing. Yes, it's true that the increase is even more for UT and OU, but we now have a situation where Paul Rhoads will have the financial backing to compete on a much more level playing field with the coach across the field. ISU's football stadium will now look like a major college stadium and Rhoads will be able to continue recruiting from Texas. I'm confident that given this financial windfall, Rhoads will have the amunition to significantly improve ISU's relative standing in Big 12 football.

    I was expecting to turn on the radio this morning and hear Deace concede how he really blew another prediction when he said 24 hours ago that the Big 12 was still going to implode. But I guess I shouldn't be surprised.

    And we've been so successful in the past? I really don't see how the tougher schedule changes things much. The additionally money helps alot more.

    Re: "ISU is the only loser in the new Big 12"

    I can appreaciate these guy's opinions as that's there job but they are always being downers/negative. They are like politicians complaining about current conditions but never offering a solution. So my question to them is what would have done instead?

    Wait until Paul Rhoads turns ISU into a contender. Then we will see who the loser is.

    I thought he'd say it was okay with reservations, but he's still going apocalypse on us.

    My point is that sports blog and radio hacks are very short sighted (and in the case of central Iowa anti-ISU). Iowa fans like to point out the equity in the B10 by stating that since PSU joined the league everyone but Indiana, Illinois and MSU have won the B10. Well, tOSU has won something like ten of those so whose to say we can't become the Northwestern to UT's tOSU? Or, dare I say it, the Wisconsin?

    Texas has always had more money than everyone yet it hasn't translated into fifteen consecutive Big XII Championships. ISU can compete and succeed in this league.

    Go Cyclones!
