    Really dug Georges defending Fred. CW and GN really hit a stride almost halfway into the podcast. Really fun dynamic!

    Love GN, the only thing I thought was interesting was how much he express the greatness of IAst fans love, then can't understand the how fans are taking the loss of CFH. But it was great to hear all of it from GN! Thanks great stuff.

    The stories about his first visit to Ames and Iowa City are worth listening to the entire podcast!

    I personally think "Old Man Game" is perfect for the pod. A play on Georges' game and me just being old.

    He got to experience the Eastern Iowa U animosity, but not the Western Iowa U animosity. I'm sure he will get an education in response to those comments. And then he will join us in our lives that are torn by care for Fred, but despising kNU.

    Who would be the perfect sponsor for this podcast?
    • The Y (old man's game)
    • Modern Piping (the only ones to troll EIU harder than Georges)
    • The kNU basketball program (as he brings dual fans in Western Iowa back to Hoiberg)
    Other funny or serious options?

    I loved the podcast. I hope were still going to have football and random things. That would be a great 1-2 podcast for football & basketball. Little worried since no fart in the last week.

    Topics:
    • "It's a Cyclone State" (was that planned or spontaneous, Fred's reaction?)
    • Trash-talking (best other than him, best memories of getting under someone's skin?)
    • Big 12 refs (best/worst, coolest/most anal, easiest/hardest to manipulate?)
    • Cap City League (fun, worth it, best memories?)
    • Girlfriends (while at Iowa State, in NBA?)
    • The Kiss (how did that come about?)
    • Fred (how did Hoiberg convince you to come to Ames?)
    • Big 12 tournament (crowds, games, welcome at the Marriott?)
    • Teammates (Naz, Monte, Melvin, Kane, Stu, Bubu, Edozie, BDJ, Coach Matt A., etc.)
    • Other ISU Sports (did you attend many events of other teams?)
    • Jamie Pollard (what is your relationship like with him?)
    • Pregame Tunnel Dance (where did that come from? what are you thinking as you do it?)

    I'm convinced if GN didn't get hurt we would have had a final four or maybe even a NT
