    Got this email late last night from someone in the know

    Dear XXXX,

    Thanks for your email and for your concern. I would not be so fast to push the panic button. We remain very confident that the Big 12 will be just fine, with or without A&M. Just need to let this sort out in due time. For peace of mind I would encourage you to only read the media reports and chat rooms for humor and entertainment rather than for facts. Will never cease to amaze me how our society continues to bite on misinformation, especially as it relates to sports. I guess when people can make a living spreading rumors, there is little chance for that unfortunate trend to cease anytime soon. Thanks once again for your generous support on the xxxxxxxxxx project.
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    The take-away for me is our ISU leadership is a whole lot calmer than we are. And I love the piece about........... humor and entertainment rather than facts. Good advice.

    95% of people here have expressed this too. A&M will leave and the Big 12 will find a suitable replacement.

    I asked, they didn't think it would do much good (your response verifies that) but it may help to calm a few of the more mature and rational people on here. I don't know why I continue to try............back to the social groups for me.

    I agree with the 95 percenters'......

    IMO aTm is gonna leave if the texas pols/ legislature lets them, I dont think that the politicians would be very happy with a One Billion Dollar Lawsuit filed against one of their schools aka aTm, when the legislature can stop it and say NO yur staying in the greatest conference in the land...


    THE BIG 12 !!

    That sounds like a Pollard e-mail...

    Re: Got this email late last night from someone in the know

    Looks like a standard form reply sent out to those meddling donors who were narcissistic enough to think they needed to interject themselves into the situation.

    What Pollard wanted to say was, "Shut the **** up and leave me alone, but keep sending the checks."

    I thought the same thing. Pollard has been on record many times about how he despises blogs and message boards because most of the content is not fact-based and anyone with internet access can write a story without citing sources or doing their research on the subject.

    It's just a fictional character that was played by Vin Diesel's older brother.
