    Potential MBB/WBB conflict at Big 12 Tournament

    If ISU is the 4 seed (or is the 5 seed but wins the first round), the WBB team will play at 1:30 Wed and the MBB team at 2pm. In the past, the conference has shuffled games to avoid this: in 2009, they swapped times for the first two games of the WBB tournament so the KSU WBB and MBB teams didn't play at the same time. I'd expect something similar to happen here.

    Re: Potential MBB/WBB conflict at Big 12 Tournament

    Through what my limited knowledge from being in the band, we have "reserve" pep band members set up so if that happens we have enough people to split up and play at both games (NCAA only allows 30; if they play at the same time we'd bring in more students and have 2 bands of 20). From what I've gotten from that, it sounds like the games won't move.

    That's too bad they won't move it.

    But......the set up of the Big 12 tournements for both the men and women at the same time and in the same city is such a great thing. I have no idea why more conferences don't do it, but I hope they never change it. It's such a cool, cool thing.

    Cool story bro. I was just using my only source of information, which has never mentioned anything that hinted that the games could potentially be shuffled.

    I love the people on this board that write "cool story bro". Do all of you live in the same frat house? Since when did one statement become a story anyway?

    There's always a possibility they won't move it because moving it would cause a conflict for a different school. I doubt they would swap an afternoon game and an evening game, but I also doubt they'd hesitate to swap the two morning games as long as swapping wouldn't also cause a conflict, especially since there is precedent for them doing it.

    If the Big 12 is still around in 2014, that year may see the two tournaments split. KC was awarded the MBB tourney through 2014 but the WBB tourney only through 2013. They apparently want to keep their options open for 2014.

    The pep band is essential part of the game experience. Everybody (player, coaches, fans, cheerleaders, band members) contributes to the success of our team!

    So if we have a crappy season, we can blame the band?

    I guess I'm very happy we had Gene Chizik around for two seasons. It took a national-champion caliber coach to make up for our band's deficiencies on the field.

    I suspect that Texas is wanting something back. They now know they can't compete with KC for putting on and attendance at the men's tourney, but other than ISU and KSU the south schools own the women's game.

    I would hope they do it considering the games would be between the same two schools. I already have my ticket for the men's session. Considering ISU is 2-0 vs KSU on the wbb side I would think the wbb advancing is almost a lock.

    You'd be surprised how much news makes it to the boards by way of the band.. as a group that tends to need to know some of the things going on in the ath. dept (events, etc), a lot has come through that way.
