NO IT IS NOT!
point of clarification...
it is good to have a back up plan; however, if this is it I want everyone involved fired!
Surprise surprise the Des Moines Hawkeye Newsletter puts this out there NOW!
That's not a backup plan, that's a suicide plan.
I need a drink............
Of course there was some sort of conversation. How would the MWC not at least make the phone call? Even call twice.
That doesn't mean we're looking at them as a serious option.
So what's our back up to our backup?
the Iowa Conference?
anyone willing to come to Mankato and drink me til i die? Perhaps some hookers? after we're done... we'll kill them? anyone?
This really ticked me off. I completely understand that the Mountain West would call us. But the Register has been pushing the Mountain West on us for a while now.
In pretty much every chat done by their "reporters" when asked where they think ISU will end up, they say MWC. And that stupid article by Hanson mentioned the MWC as the most likely.
And yet have we seen a positive opinion sports piece about the reasons why Iowa State belongs in a conference better than the MWC in the Register? Nope. But we've seen that in the Kansas City paper. We've seen that a bit in the national media. But the REgister? Not at all. It makes me very angry.
Option 1- big 12
Option 2- merged big 12 and big east
There is no need for an option3
MWC: "We want you ISU because you would be far and away better than every school in our conference"
ISU: "Thanks but no thanks"
