    Just saw an interview with Ellis Hobbs concerning the Pat's and their team philosophy. But that's not important. What is, is that in his locker behind him he had a brand new ISU hat right up front, new logo and all.

    Very cool.

    Can't be True. Ellis Hobbs doesn't care about Iowa State. All he cares about is DeSoto High School.:jimlad:

    Can't be a hater and a lover all at the same time!
    How confusing! Too many mind games.

    They were showing an interview with him last night, I think it had something to do with Moss. But anyway, he was standing right in front of his locker and right behind his head you could see he had an I State hat just sitting there.

    I love it! Since the Iggles play on Sunday night, hopefully he's give ISU some love during his TV introductions Instead of his high school.

    Has he stopped saying his High School when he's announced on Monday Night Football? You could tell he was more than a little upset when McCarney was let go.

    I will never forgot hearing him in his first MNF game for the Pats:

    "Ellis Hobbs - THE Iowa State University"

    Most of the time he called out his high-school instead. That really ticked me off.

    I don't think that's why he didn't say ISU.

    I think he didn't say it because he didn't get his degree.

    If he was so P.O.ed about McCarney, then he wouldn't have came back to ISU to finish his degree. He could have finished his degree anywhere.

    Pretty sure Ellis came back and got his degree from ISU. Think there was media coverage at the time of him "walking" to get his diploma.

    I too think he was upset at ISU for a time over the McCarney firing.

    He did it because the whole defense did it. It was a team thing. They only tape those once a year, so evertime they were on he said his high school.

    I saw him last year for I think the Colorado game. He was wearing his Letterman jacket.

    :skeptical:You didn't read my post very clearly.

    "If he was so P.O.ed about McCarney, then he wouldn't have came back to ISU to finish his degree."

    I don't think he was using his high school because he was P.O.ed. I think he was using his high school because he hadn't earned his degree.

    And if was upset about McCarney, then why would he EVER mention ISU?

    See my post above. I said IF he were upset about McCarney, he WOULDN'T have came back to ISU to finish his degree. He could have gotten it anywhere.

    McCarney was still coach when Hobbs was in the NFL, and at that time Hobbs would say Iowa State. Around the time Chizik was hired, Hobbs would announce his high school - I just put 2-and-2 together.

    Edit: Thanks for clarifying Yes & CyRocks.

    Just to clarify...Its Sunday Night Football on NBC that does the starting lineup introductions like that. Monday Night Football on ESPN does not.

    Here is your answer. Thanks Yes13. I forgot about this. It had nothing to do with McCarney being let go.

    I'm pretty sure MNF did that back when it was on ABC.

    I could be wrong

    Don't worry if you are wrong someone on this board will let you know in the next 30 seconds. After that you are safe!
