In the Middle
Put the various reviews together and you get a pretty fair assessment of this show. I listen sometimes in spite of myself because the show has its flaws. I can understand a few missed shows and illness is an excuse I can accept. But when you say there will for be a show tomorrow or 5 shows this week and there is no show or only 3 of 5 shows and this happens more than once, this is frustrating. It is also fair to say that if Isaiah has the football or basketball acumen of some others who regularly comment on Michigan football like Sam Webb or half a dozen others, it doesn’t show. Finally, his candor about what he knows and doesn’t know is refreshing, but sometimes he is his own worst enemy apologizing to much or talking too much about his personal situation and why that has it allowed him to do a better job. With all this being said, his manner, quirkiness and enthusiasm are all plus factors, and while often he simply repeats what Harbaugh or some player has said in a press conference (happens with almost all UM sports bloggers) he does have an original perspective as well as news and insights you don’t get from other commentators. I also like the show’s length which allows me to take in a show on a short walk. Listen to a few shows if he is to your taste subscribe as I do. If not following him will be a waste of time.
