Battle of the Broadcasters

Recommended Posts

During the Taylor/Moore Match, Iowa radio broadcaster Mark Ironside actually went over to PSU radio broadcaster Jeff Byers and told him to quiet down. I guess he wasn't as enthusiastic about what was transpiring on the mat. :lol:

 

Seriously though, isn't this a bit over the line?

Well, they are playing in Iowa's sandbox ... So it's not exactly a neutral site. Next thing we'll see is 3 minute wrestle off's for the best announcing position in the facility.

 

We had the same issue with our State tournament a few years back ... Dueling Newspapers, and announcers. Pretty wild!! :lol:

From what I gathered from the TOM commentators (who were apparently caught in the middle of it) Ironside asked Byer's to tone it down a little because he was getting a little to loud and animated about thing.. TOM team felt Ironsides initial conversation was within reason. However, Byer's didn't respond well to Ironside approaching them and that began a short battle where did Byer's didn't tone it down or let it go. Leading to some behind the scenes bickering back and forth.

Any non-Iowa fan see's the problem with Iowa. They take after their coach.

 

Yeah Olympic and World champ, 3x NCAA champ, National champion coach, one of the most respected competitors in our sport's history...... Terrible lead to follow. Stop.

 

By your math, the Altons', Ruth, and Long's troubles were a direct result of Cael's tutelage.

The double standards of judging Iowa compared to everyone else is ridiculous.

Did Ironside throw Byers' microphone in the trash?
