    At the end of the Uconn game, they talked about us a little bit. Probably something they wouldn't have done if we weren't undefeated

    Freddie got a lot of love, pretty sure they dropped the word 'contender' a few times. Idk what that means exactly but it can't be bad :). I liked that they mentioned Fred's 10 year deal, just a shout out to the nation that things are just starting in Ames.

    They also talked about us a few times during the Michigan - LBSU game. Dave O'Brian was on the call. He said how loud Hilton was and being one of the best homecourts in the nation.

    Said we're contenders... for what I don't know. Also talked a bit of Kane and of course they praised Hoiberg.

    This has slowly spread from ISU, to the big 12 and now it seems Fred's dreaminess is taking over the nation.

    It's been nearly 22 hours since the game ended, several games played today already, and they are talking ISU 2 minutes after UCONN escapes BC. Incredible coverage for the team already this year. Huge man-crush on Fred by the guys in studio as well.

    "Just got a little love on ESPN"?

    I'm shocked they didn't sensor it. Full fledged love making on cable TV is usually frowned on.

    I mean really, who doesnt.

    If you dont like Fred you're some kind of communist, its that simple.

    Surprised they can even show "His Dreaminess" on tv. He is essentially making love to all the viewers each time he is on camera.

    Ya they had nothing but good things to say about us and so glad they didn't bring any negative stuff up that BYU can't let go of.

    I caught that segment, too. Almost like they were trying out-gush each other.

    I think the thing about Fred is that it seems like every year he looses 60% of his scoring and 50% of his rebounding, and the next year a couple guys turn up to fill the voids and the team is good again. The sports guys and I are the same in wondering how the heck he does it. It works, so I guess I should not wonder how.

    Ha my bad. I probably should go back and fix my post so it's not so confusing.
