  1. Re: Big XII Expansion: Football Only Affiliate Members?

    Because the Big 12 does not exist in a vacuum. What is best for TV money and perception is best for cross country from an ISU standpoint. The optimality of the schedule is relatively low on the list,...
  2. Re: Big XII Expansion: Football Only Affiliate Members?

    Do I need to point out ISU is already in the Big 12? That emotional response is predictable, but fallacious. If it helps you, pretend I am a UT fan. Because we don't have enough elite brands like my...
  3. Re: Big XII Expansion: Football Only Affiliate Members?

    It didnt stop them because the BIG does not have a perception problem. They make their living off an over-inflated perception backed by an already large and populous footprint, filled with huge state...

    Re: Season Football Predictions (2015)

    There is a difference between no margin and little margin for error, either of which is as much a result of mistakes in building a program as it is innate. CW is an authority of the "woe is ISU",...
  5. Re: Big XII Expansion: Football Only Affiliate Members?

    Potential? Perhaps, but it would be fatal for a conference with a perception problem but strong play to get in the business of "building" brands, particularly if they are not great on the field.
  6. Re: What will your reaction be to the possible outcomes of the UNI game?

    Predetermined? Not really. This is nothing more than a prediction thread. No one's reactions, win or lose, will be governed by what they posted here.
    Don't take this stuff so seriously. Relax and...

    Re: Season Football Predictions (2015)

    You are the truly negative one, but I understand your "woe is ISU" is needed for what you deem as "positivity" about CPR.

    You only have to back to 2012 to see it always is not the case. That year...
  8. Re: Big XII Expansion: Football Only Affiliate Members?

    Agree, the "no CC game/10 team conference" thing was a convenient cover for the committee last December, and if that happens to cause the Big 12 to react with potentially fatal expansion, even better...

    Re: 5 Dimes: ISU favored by 8 over UNI

    Sadly 8 point favorite seems fair.
    Mangino had a lot of work to do when he signed on. If he is ahead of schedule in putting his imprint on the program then it should be a comfortable win.

    Like every off-season. Hopefully this time it is true.

    Re: Devlyn Cousin transferring

    A simple plan, no doubt. Works in the movies every time.

    Mental weakness, or lack thereof, is built just as much as it is innate. It would be great if we could rely on just having a bunch of...

    Re: Devlyn Cousin transferring

    No, it is better to get guys to produce, regardless of whether they need a carrot or the whip, than to have them quit. They failed to do so. It is a tough task, but figuring out how to get the best...

    Re: Devlyn Cousin transferring

    Either that or the coaches grossly misread how to motivate one of their players.
  14. Re: What will your reaction be to the possible outcomes of the UNI game?

    No, I am the one that actually reads posts and does not need to fabricate things to support my contention, which is not about wanting Rhoads gone, but the likelihood that Rhoads will get things to...
  15. Re: What will your reaction be to the possible outcomes of the UNI game?

    A loss will be emotionally speaking status quo CPR Ball apathy, and increases the subsequent performance requirement (increasing to competent football that results in 8 wins). A comfortable win does...
  16. Re: What will your reaction be to the possible outcomes of the UNI game?

    How are we not making a bowl with 7+ wins?

    You read what you want to read as I know your lunacy is dependent on making up ****, but that looks like the possible point differential to the...

    Re: ESPN kickoff game NDSU #1 at Montana #12

    Rhoads also beat NDSU in his first game. Not a bad group he inherited.

    Re: Epps playing as a Freshman?

    Is now the time to build a program?

    WR is a position in which some guys may not need that much "building"- a true senior year may not be that much different than a rs senior year. Really though,...
