    aww, that's a shame... I'll miss him answering every caller question with "I don't disagree with you, but..." and then go right ahead and disagree with everything the caller said.

    I don't listen to that show a whole lot, but heard a referral to that today. Why is he leaving? Another radio show?

    Any announced replacements? Rumors?

    I'm sure he's a smarter guy than his radio persona, but it would be nice if they got a new co-host for that show with an intelligent point-of-view that extend beyond "beer, porn, and sports sure are great, amigright guys?!"

    I bet Ross Peterson. He's the producer now, but he's on air as much as the yahoos.

    Also I'm going to start the rumor that Pelini is getting fired tomorrow and Tim Fisher is his replacement. Nebraska will never win another game.

    You are correct, sir. I have it on good authority that this is what's going to happen. Ross is ok for a Hok fan. He talks too much baseball for my tastes but he always seems to have put some thought into his opinions instead of just spewing verbal diarrhea like Travis and Tim.

    Yea, I'd be ok with Ross. Might actually tune in on occasion again.

    I never understood the hate for Travis and Tim. I enjoy listening to them every morning, even if they aren't talking sports. Ross would be a good replacement.

    I don't know, that beer spot they do with Bruno is maybe the most brutal 15 minutes of radio you can find on any given station any given week.

    This has been a tough week for KXNO as they lost Fisher and Pollard decided to dump KXNO at MadClone1's request.

    I listen to both KXNO.com afternoon shows pretty much any day there is interesting things going on for ISU hoops or football, outside of CF it's my #1 source of what's going on with ISU sports living out of state.

    Listened to Cotlar twice then never again. Listened to "TNT" for less than one show, absolute worst radio I have ever heard in my life. It's hard to imagine a worse business decision than KXNO's morning programming outside of the brief stint with Jon Miller. I'm guessing a sizable # of their audience who have listened to their afternoon programming 1000s of times who don't ever tune in before 2pm.

    Not sure if serious...

    I'd put them slightly above nails on a chalkboard.

    My two main complaints are that they do the "dumb sports fan" schtick that just doesn't work for me and they have a ton of regular local guests that I have no interest in like the guy from the Iowa Speedway.

    Which one is Tim? Is he the bald fat guy with the goatee that drones on about the hawks or the bald fat guy with the goatee that drones on about the hawks?

    pollard got on him it sounds like. Tired of his anti-isu slant.

    Local sports radio in the last 5 years has really fallen off a cliff or maybe I just grew tired of listening.
