Outstanding

Outstanding coverage for the biggest and best university in Iowa.

Biased

Listened to last podcast about Covid and OK State. Never once brought up Black Lives Matter and Protests. Seems likely that could have something to do with Covid spike with students coming back to Ames. Also what exactly would the OK State Coach need to apologize for? Wearing a Tshirt on his day off that had a TV station on it? Is that where we are? What if it was a MSNBC or CNN Tshirt? Does he need to apologize for that? Never heard of the TV station before this incident, but my guess is that the players hadn’t either. Heard a reporter (like you bozos) kept calling the University and Tweeting about the Tshirt like it was pro killing Jews or something. Crazy the world we live in today when a podcast that is supposed to be talking about sports is trying to brainwash the population.
