I’m not usually the type to say “Toldja so!” but, well, you get it. I’ll take some credit for predicting the ISU football team would beat Tulsa yesterday even though I was way off on the score. I’ll take even more credit for calling on coaches to get Aaron Wimberly more involved in the offense. (You were listening to the Cyclone Tailgate show yesterday, right?) Wimberly came through in big way, with the most rushing yards by a Cyclone in almost two years. In addition, quarterback Sam Richardson was solid and the offensive line was buoyed by the return of center Tom Farniok. Toss in good defensive effort, including a few forced turnovers and one gift fumble, and you have a nice all-around performance in a must-win game. I’ll be holding my breath to see if the Cyclones can do it again next Thursday when Texas comes to town.
A little bit about me....
I've been Sports Director at News/Talk 1430 KASI since December 2005. I graduated from Iowa State just a few months before that. My career has also taken me to such exotic locals as Estherville, and Storm Lake, Iowa, Owatonna, Minnesota, and Silver City, New Mexico (long story-don't ask). I've also had the pleasure of working part-time at WOI Radio in Ames and WHO Radio in Des Moines while I was a student.
I'm a native of Maplewood, Minnesota, a suburb of St. Paul. It was there that I was inflicted with the curse of being a Minnesota Vikings fan. There is still no known cure, though many times I wish there was. I'm also an avid follower of the Minnesota Twins and of course, the Iowa State Cyclones.
