Did I say otherwise? Saying they were definitely better is also homerish, although it was their peak year of relevancy. Imo the MWC did a hell of a job getting their RPI higher than it should have been based on quality.
The MWC could have been an equal to the Pac-10/12 as a basketball conference had expansion not started at the "major" 5/6. Even then though, the exposure would have limited.
Sorry, must've misread your post. I agree that the RPI of the Mountain West was inflated and that even with that conference peaking they still drew less media attention than the Big 12, obviously.
Timing on all of RVs comments seems to imply that he's NOT going to UNLV. Makes his announcement that he's going to commit this Saturday after big ISU win. Everyone assumes ISU. Some DB then spreads UNLV rumor and RV sends tweet saying no one knows anything. Why a smokescreen if the rumors are right?
Still assuming he's in cardinal and gold next year.
I doubt the outcome of one ISU game is the basis for his timing or the decision itself. Sounds like all coaches were taken by surprise. I take that as a good sign as much as any, especially more than the outcome of a single game. He has said very positive things about ISU and Fred, more so than others, so we have a good shot. Still concerned about UNLV though. Nobody knows what's gone on behind the scenes as well.
I absolutely live the changes in emotions this thread has taken since the Vaughn announcement date was set... First we think he is ours for sure, next we think he is going to UNC because he cancelled his visit and that is the only place he actually said he "wanted to go to". Now he is going to UNLV because some cheese**** on twitter thinks he knows something...
i think this thread should be locked until the decision has been made. People's lives would be saved.
I completely agree. I have been reading back several pages trying to find new relevant information and something other than complete speculation. Thus far I haven't found any; RV has done a hell of a job keeping this a secret.
The only relevant event since he visited UNLV is his announcement regarding this weekend. Even trying use the timing of his announcement and cancellation of future visits to explain which way he is leaning is pointless and only leads me to believe he is probably not going to pick KU or Kentucky.
If I am missing a bombshell of legitimate information that is causing everyone to freak out, please fill me in. Otherwise, we have two days to go and I like our chances as much as I did after the Michigan game.
