I listened to the show once and Brinson said something to the effect that he's not that into college football and won't get excited until August.
I'd rather listen to a Rebecca Black album than baseball, golf, or horse racing talk.
Miller is primarily an NFL guy, the Denver Broncos to be specific, and doesn't care much for CFB. As long as the NFL lock-out lasts, he will have little to talk about besides golf, horse racing and baseball. Brinson, obviously, is a baseball guy and it shows on the air. I don't mind the baseball talk so much as it is my first love of sports. Even so, talking college sports in a college sports market occasionally would be a good move on their part. I don't think Miller has any strong connections to ISU, SUI, UNI, or Drake, so very few coaches interviews. KXNO needs to bring CW on the air more often for college sports coverage.
Back to the point -- CPR says the NU call still haunts him. IMO, he did the right thing, had them surprised and the game winner was right there. Coach should NOT feel bad about it. Although the Lyte-hearted will pick at that scab for years to come. I still wonder if the CU outcome would have been different had we beat NU.
Frankly, if he had a better holder (ie athletic pass/run guy) we would have won. That will now be rectified this year. Live and learn. It was a good call.
Looking forward to CFH magic for the next bball season, Georges style.
For the local stuff -- KXNO in particular -- I still say it's too early to complain. I mean -- we all complain about the "way too early bowl predictions" that start before the previous year's bowls are over. Now we're bored with nothing-exciting-in-the-summer-except-fringe-sports and we're not patient to wait-until-it's-actually-worthwhile-to-talk-college-sports (football).
May my postings be polite and not misunderstood. (And hopefully funny on occasion.)
