I'd ask if you're serious but Huge is a big enough tool that I know the answer
Huge sure is burning bridges now. Where's the lmfao smiley when you need it!
Listening to this show and Huge lashing out at his "enemies", I can't help but visualize Pacino getting shot up by machine guns at the end of Scarface. This is what this show is like today.
I was told that Peter Secchia has some sort of financial interest in the station or show, or some sort of relationship with "Huge," so Izzo does him the favor of calling in.
As others have noted, Dantonio has blacklisted him - I believe after he spent several weeks railing on him for the Rather Hall incident (thugs, ski masks, etc).
Serious. The only reason I was listening was because of this thread and to hear Izzo. He let some caller come on and trash the entire Lansing area and market, now the LSJ was trash, and Huge started saying how Ebling was buying the time and wanted exclusivity with Rexrode and others. He said how Ebling had been on 17 stations and was nothing next to him.
It's one thing to be a loud mouth to attract listeners, it's another to be a classless douche.
someone needs to write a letter to secchia
God no, it was when Dantonio was hired. Huge went out of his way to talk Keith Nichol out of his commitment to MSU (made to JLS) and when KN bailed to OU, Huge was thrilled like a little school girl. Huge attended some classes at OU; I don't think he ever graduated, but maybe he did.)
He burned his bridge to Dantonio before it could even be built.
This. Who the hell does he think he's endearing himself to?
I heard that anti-Lansing caller. I swear that had to have been a set up--one of Huge's cronies disguised as a real caller perhaps? Anyway, a pretty lousy way to try and woo Lansing to his side. As a 27-year Lansing area resident, that caller made my blood boil.
I can't wait for Ebling's show to start.
It won't work. Huge lets Secchia co-host with him a couple times a year. Secchia cares more about hearing himself talk than whether a radio host bashes MSU non-stop. Too bad really.
Secchia is very successful, and has been very generous to MSU, but his ego is massive, and it needs to be stroked non-stop. Example: He funds a partial scholarship to Aquinas College in GR. I know a guy who was a finalist for it, and he was summoned to Secchia's office for an interview. His secretary told the kid to be sure that he refers to Secchia as "Mr. Ambassador", or he could forget about winning the scholarship. (For those that don't know, he was Ambassador to Italy years ago).
for someone who hasnt listened to huge in a very long time, can someone fill me in on whats going on? all i know is ebling took over huge's slot in lansing. so now is actually bashing ebling for taking his slot on the air? why is he bashing rexrode?
I've heard him basically saying Drake Harris won't and shouldn't go to MSU. I was shocked to hear that. Guy is so unprofessional.
same voice as last week making the same call......you draw your own conclusions......about as real as 955's "War of the roses" fake bit.
Huge may well be right that Ebling isn't as successful (in terms of ratings) of a radio host as Huge. Of course, to be a successful radio host, you usually need to get people to dislike you, and Jack fails at that. He's one of the most well liked and well respected in sports journalists in the state, maybe the country. Huge doesn't know what a sports journalist is, so he's naturally confused as to how Ebling could take his slot, even in a market where Ebling is legendary.
His trashing of Rexrode was unbelievable. He has always said how great Rexrode was, then proceeded to talk about a personal and private phone call that Joe had with Muller on the air, stopping just short of calling Joe a POS and "how dare he..." like Huge made Joe's career by having having him on the Huge Show.
Of course, now "journalism is dead"... The LSJ is a POS and prints nothing but lies....basically acting like a butthurt 12yo little girl.
I know this is hopeless to ask since so many around here continue to read/post links to the DetNews and Freep, but I think we should bombard Meijer for using Huge in their "instore broadcasts".....I actually found the manager at our local Meijer, gave him my full shopping cart and told him hearing Huge on their system made me ill so I was leaving...had a Spartan hat, jacket and gloves on.
We need to write to Meijer and let them know how disgusting Huge is and how unbalanced he is in terms of treating MSU with respect.
I like this idea. We need a PR persons email, and can :cc a slew of others. We should send some snail mail too, tons and tons of it.
I don't listen to the sports talk much, but if this is true than its great. Jack is first class and knows what he's talking about.
Its five o'clock somewhere.
I hope this is being recorded. I need a laugh
Right. Pretty sure being an ambassador comes with a lifetime honorific.

I know that government officials like to use their titles for life, but I think it's a bit much. After 20 years out of office, you should just move on.
And referring to someone as "Sir", or "Mr." suffices for most people. To deny a kid a scholarship based on something so trivial is a great example of a massive ego IMO. I think that if all candidates are respectful, the scholie should be based on merit, rather than ass kissing.

Guinness makes you drop mud.
I once heard of a kid who lost out on a scholarship because he wanted to be a city planner instead of an architect.
The above post was a reply to my "rant" about Meijer and using Huge as their spokesperson on their instore broadcasts....I went to the meijer.com site and there is a place to send them a message there, but I am going to write a snail mail letter as well....I don't understand why Meijer would support a sensationalist sports radio personality in any way....they might consider moving up the ladder and get a bigger personality like Weird Al, maybe.
My interest was peaked by this thread so against my better judgement I tuned in to 10 minutes of his show online. He led off the top of the hour with a rant that mirrors what others have reported here, so apparently he's repeating himself. Paraphrasing, he said:
"Starting Monday in Lansing you'll hear Jack Ebling from 3-6 and an encore of the Huge Show from 6-9.
I don't mean to sound like I'm mad at Ebling, but I guess I am. I just don't like to hear from Joe Rexrode that he's being paid to be on Jack's show. When Ebling runs out of money, Rexrode better not come back asking to be on this show. I'm territorial."
It was butthurt to the extreme. The epitomy of someone who is failing at their job and blames their replacement instead of looking in the mirror.
