I don't know how to phrase this, but bear with me as this is coming from a Husker fan:
A week from tomorrow is Gene Chizik's first game as ISU's head coach...where in the hell is the hype? Where is the media coverage? The Des Moines media ought to be all over this. The last 2 days has produced more Hawkeye coverage from the Des Moines media than what there has been all month.
My point/question is...is Iowa a football obessed state? Does the Iowa media drive the obsession when it comes to football?
The last couple of weeks, i've made a point to see what, if any coverage of Iowa St. and Iowa training camp is in the Register and it's rather sad. Every other newspaper throughout the Big 12 has ran season preview articles of every Big 12 teams...the San Antonio, Grand Island, NE, and Omaha newspapers come to mind as examples and you could say that Texas and Nebraska are football obsessed states. So were does Iowa rank?
I'm not attempting to flame, just asking an honest question.... Gene Chizik's first game as Iowa State's head coach is a week from tomorrow and where is the media hype? Gene Chizik must love it here in Iowa if only for the fact that the media coverage isn't as intense as it is in Austin TX or Auburn AL.
