Yesterday I tuned into KXNO and wow did the guys on both afternoon shows have huge problems with Lazard being off limits to the media for his first year. Their reaction was such that a listener might have thought Lazard was off limits for his whole career at ISU. They all kept repeating that they didn't care from their side of things, but that it was the fans and especially those in central Iowa that were going to hurt because of this. They kept asking what about when he scores his first touchdown, has a big game or the winning TD grab against Iowa? How can fans be kept from hearing from him? I'm a big Cyclone fan and I could care less if Lazard was available to speak to the media or not for one year. They're plenty of other characters on the football team to keep us entertained for the whole season. Lazard is well composed for a kid his age and I don't think he would ever cause a stir for ISU. The kid has been hounded for the last year and always talked with the media who constantly questioned him about his ISU commitment and the radio guys said that he never seemed mad or frustrated with the media over this. I go back to Lazard just being well composed. I think that its a great move to keep him off limits because it allows him to focus on football and becoming a great teammate. Iowa keeps freshmen off limits Its pretty clear that it was the radio and media guys that are going to hurt because of this, not the fans. Its all about readers or listeners for them and a Lazard interview would be great for their business. It was just annoying/funny to hear them spend an entire segment about this when they kept saying they didn't care.
