Excellent!!  I like Iaconelli's attitude this year.  I wish he would have pulled it off, I guess Skeet was due.

Thanks for the great video Glenn.

Wow, great interview.  Seems to put Mike in a different light compared to much of the ESPN coverage.  I was happy to see Skeet win the BMC but am now rooting for Mike to take Angler of the Year.

Awesome interview. I think people put Ike down a lot by his antics, but he is just being himself. He does what people think is weird or unsportsman like in some views. But come on, who doesn't want to scream when they are on the verge of that big payday. Emotional man to say the least.

That was a great interview. I know that some people might not like how he goes crazy but I will say that although I am pretty reserve and maintain my composure when I catch a good sized fish, you can bet that inside I am "Ianconelli'ing it"  (as I have dubbed it) inside all the way to the bank. I do fist pump too.

This is one of the best classics I have ever seen, and it was exciting for me because I am a fan of both Skeet and Ike. Fo Sho!!!!! Hats off to both. 8-)

How 'bout Ike showing BR a lot of love!  That is an awesome interview and I like the new Ike more than the old Ike.  It seems as if he has found the perfect balance (for him) between "Space Monkey" (As Zona calls him) and normality.  Congrats on a great tournament.  I have a feeling Classic victory number two is just around the corner.

I'm always amazed that people are surprised to see him be "normal".  I've had the honor to listen to his presentation when they used to do the Bassmaster Universities.  He was THE best presenter (FYI--KVD was at this one too), he was a wealth of information and knows how to speak to an audience.  I've also had the honor to meet him each year when the Elites have visited Oneida.  He is a class act and has never been anything less than professional and cordial.

And...He knows how to find 'em on Oneida too.  He brought in a 20lbs bag in '08. :o

Great interview.  So now we have Ike's pattern for the Classic.  Cool!  He communicates very well which, as some have already stated, makes him a good teacher in his seminars.

Great interview!  I noticed Ike said he has been associated with BR for his entire career.  Did he ever post on the boards?

We will not get into an Ike bashing contest on this thread.

If you don't know him personally you can't begin to understand him or his personality.
