Jim Rome on Monday...

absolutely bashed Kirk Ferentz in the "final burn" segment of his TV show "Rome is Burning" on ESPN.  Rome began with a summary of the Kyle Calloway situation, and then started cracking on everything from the fact that Calloway used a mo-ped, to Ferentz reinstating his son James for an alcohol offense, to Iowa football having 18 arrests in 2 years.  He called Ferentz (and other coaches who are not happy with the media's coverage of their players/criminals) "egomaniacs."  He flashed the quote from Ferentz from last week (which basically said:  if this is what runs as news in major publications, then its a great state we live in.)  Rome finally said "good luck with that" regarding Ferentz's comments to the "Hawkeye state."  ISU fans on cyclonefanatic.com said that Rome did nearly the same thing on his radio show.

While I freely admit Rome is an absolute fink, I love watching the show.  Also, he does have a national daily TV show. And as we all know, more and more people are watching sarcastic shows like this and the Daily Show instead of real news.  This is not the first time Rome has "burned" Ferentz or Iowa (I recall something from the new pink locker room issues with that visiting professor). Does this hurt recruiting?  Ferentz's image?  None of the above?
