Apply this quote to life... and repeat.
"Never wait. I don’t care what you’re doing in life, whether it’s going to Homecoming or finding a job, don’t sit around waiting for the phone to ring."
Kristi's comments seem to be an echo and summation of all the terrible rumors that have been thrown out just to be out there. I couldn't take her seriously after her lack of knowledge on the subject matter that peered through on her answer to the first question (did she miss the part about Iowa State being in a major conference for over a century?). ...Lawyers...
Chadd at least showed that he was willing to concede on issues that NO ONE knows, while still being able to state his opinions.
Not saying I know anything more than they do, but I can at least tell when someone is answering a question honestly, and subjectively if it is opinion based.
Can someone please tell me why people think KU has a shot to get into the B1G? They keep saying football and media markets drive this realignment...well, KC is the 31st largest media market however, their football sucks and KC is already split 3 ways (between KU, KSU, and MU). They already jumped MU for Nebraska supposedly to get the KC market. I don't see what good it would do to take Kansas now over MU.
Good article Chris. I believe strongly that the XII will stay together by the way all the school reps are talking or lack there of. I would really hate not being able to play our Big 8 brethren anymore.... Was really bummed to lose Nebraska and Colorado.
Kristi Dosh? Really? She has you sold Chris? I've read her stuff before and have always thought she talks a lot and know very little and when she is challenged on something her answer is often something along the lines of "well, I'm a lawyer."
I'll give her another try but definitely not sold on her yet.
Not sold on her either, but do agree with her comments on not sitting idle.
I say ISU approach the Big 10 stating how we fit scholastically, geographically, financially (as a University, not TV market-based), & athletically. Heck, we could compete for football championship in that conference immediately.
I haven't seen anyone seriously suggest Kansas to the Big 10, I think that takes away a lot of Kristy's credibility. If the Big 10 didn't think Nebraska is enough for the KC market why not take Missouri it has KC & St. Louis. She doesn't have a clue.
Personally I think the B12 stays together ... benefits outweigh problems.
In JP and GG I trust. This whole thing is the biggest thing to happen to ISU athletics and ISU in general since 1858.
