The interstate rivalry between Iowa and Iowa State dominated the Miller and Condon show on 1460 KXNO Wednesday morning. Show hosts Ken Miller and Trent Condon examined whether the matchup between the #9 and #10 ranked teams should continue going forward, and took several callers who expressed their thoughts on the issue as well.

“To the Iowa fans not wanting to continue the series, I hear that from my Iowa friends too, and they are the same ones that, on a daily basis, are putting Iowa Hawkeyes stuff on my timeline,” said Kyle, a caller into the show. “If they say they don’t want to play the series, that is a flat-out lie; it’s a defense mechanism. Every Hawkeye fan wants it — every Cyclone fan wants it. If you care about the state of Iowa, you want this game.”

The show continued to take callers for several minutes after, with co-host Trent Condon screening and putting the good ones on the air. The segment wrapped up with host Ken Miller making an important point about how this matchup impacts the state of Iowa on and off the field.

“The bars are going to be packed,” said Miller. “Everyone’s talking about it. One neighbor has a Hawkeye flag up and the other has a Cyclones flag up. The next day, we are all Iowans again. It’s so good for business.”

The show then welcomed Scott Dochterman, a college football writer for The Athletic. He echoed a similar sentiment to Miller about the importance of this game across the state.

“This rivalry paints a great picture,” said Dochterman. “There’s just been so many great and interesting moments, and that only happens organically. You can’t just create a trophy and christen it [as] a rivalry. It’s got to be bathed.”

The Iowa-Iowa State game received ample coverage from Miller and Condon on Wednesday, resulting in strong audience engagement. The matchup will receive even greater attention this Saturday when ESPN’s College Gameday returns to Iowa to broadcast their show live at Jack Trice Stadium. Gameday starts at 9am ET. The Cy-Hawk game kicks off at 4:30pm ET on ABC.

The on-air spat between SEC Network host Peter Burns and analyst Ben Watson continues to be bandied about in sports media circles, with 93.7 The Fan hosts Andrew Fillipponi and Chris Mueller discussing the topic Tuesday.

“I’m on Team Burns,” Fillipponi said.

“Forget who’s team you’re on,” Chris Mueller said. “I think you’ve do have to keep the wives and children out of this.”

“What are you talking about, keep the wives and out of it?!,” Fillipponi asked.

“Do we believe this is work or shoot here?,” Mueller wondered.

“Oh, I think this is real,” Fillpponi added, which Mueller agreed.

“Do you think a close fist from Ben Watson hit Peter Burns?,” Mueller asked.

“No, I think he picked him up by the lapels,” Fillipponi said.

When the subject of Watson’s religion was brought up, Fillipponi then pointed out the absurdity of the situation.

“So wait a minute? Because you believe in Jesus Christ you care about your wife more than other people? What are you talking about?”

“I think he might have a shorter fuse and not taking in humor that Peter Burns was giving out,” Mueller said.

“It was an innocuous joke!,” Fillipponi stated. “It wasn’t a joke! Why is it in bad taste?”

Mueller then added the idea of Watson’s wife texting Burns insinuates there’s an inappropriate relationship.

Craig Carton: Booger McFarland’s Zach Wilson Analysis ‘An Embarrasment’

Craig Carton

ESPN NFL analyst Booger McFarland raised eyebrows on Monday Night Countdown this week by saying New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson has never been held accountable for his actions because he was a “young man who grew up with a lot of money”. WFAN afternoon host Craig Carton called out McFarland’s comments Tuesday as outlandish.

“It was an embarrasment,” Carton said. “Someone should ask Booger McFarland if his kids — who grew up with amazing wealth — have accountability in their lives or if having a little bit of money in your pocket immediately discounts the possibility to have accountability. He’s an idiot and we learned that last night.”

“It’s funny that Steve Young was on the other side of it,” Evan Roberts noted. “Because a long time ago, Steve Young criticized Chris Simms because he’s the son of a famous quarterback.”

“You don’t have to invent reasons for why Zach Wilson isn’t playing well,” added Carton. “Just watch his tape. He’s not playing well. Maybe he’s just not good!”

Carton later said NFL reporters “will try to make a name for themselves by putting out a story” about quarterbacks who take responsibility for their teams failures, while Wilson wouldn’t accept the blame.

Peter Burns and Ben Watson shared an awkward exchange during the halftime show of an SEC Network football game over the weekend, and many are still debating whether Watson walking off the set was serious or not. Count part of the cast of The Greg Hill Show on WEEI as doubters.

“That was a a bit,” Courtney Cox said. “That was absolutely a bit.”

“Yeah, unlike the Chris Rock/Will Smith thing, I assume that was a bit,” Hill said. “I can’t believe that Ben Watson is really angry about that.”

“I dunno, man. There’s been a lot of speculation that it isn’t,” Jermaine Wiggins added. “There are people who are very sensitive about you clowning on them or joking with them. Especially with joking about their wife. Some people can’t handle jokes like that.”

After a back-and-forth with Cox about the legitimacy of the joke, Wiggins concluded by saying for some folks family is off limits.

“I’ve learned something in my 47 years on this Earth: be careful when you’re talking about somebody’s wife and their kids. ‘Cause not everybody jokes the same way.”
