Your broadcasters have forgotten that there are 2 teams on the floor in the Iowa-Ohio State game. They only talk about Ohio State and how they can win 3 games in 3 days. It’s the same thing for Iowa too. Talk about being one sided!! What street in Columbus do they live on? Horrible broadcasting!! I thought broadcasters were supposed to be impartial!!

Big Ten has never given Iowa (if men or ladies-basketball or football 0r wrestling) any credit it is always the “Other” team that Iowa is playing that gets all the attention!!
