Lack of respect

Post by FireAg » March 5th, 2020, 10:09 pm

I sometimes get the feeling that Coach Smith doesn’t really give our own broadcast (Scottie G) the consideration or time to always make an after game interview a priority. He always gives the tv an interview but seems to only give Scottie an interview if it’s convenient.

I always try to sync the Aggie broadcast to the tv and enjoy the home team bias. I’m a homer that way and I suspect I’m not the only one. And I always stick around to listen to the after game show. I would like to hear what Smith has to say - especially after a game like this.

Maybe that’s too harsh on second thought. We did win the game after all and that’s the important thing.

I like Scotty G but 1280 doesnt exactly give USU the time of day at times either. He does a great job as play by play though.

Probably has an obligation to do TV if he can only do 1 and it’s much better for the program for him to do national tv interviews than local radio and I’m sure Scotty G understands

Scottie has actually given us a portal into the mainstream Utah sports talk world. We’re certainly not in the conversation on the Wasatch front as much as Utah or BYU yet, but I think we’re in it more than we ever have been. And that’s because of Scottie G.

Al was great because he was our Al. But we were a quirky little afterthought from a farm town with no relevance in the bulk of the population in Utah. We’re not on equal footing yet - and maybe we never will be - but we’re more exposed than we ever have been - and that’s because of Scottie G.

I think Coach Smith gives good interviews with Scotty after the games. He rambles on a lot, but he seems sincere. I loved his passion going down the stretch. He even got so fired up the tie came off.

Smith typically comes on with Scotty, but at the tournament they have obligations to the press and TV.
