    When exactly did ISU ask to join BE? What about KU/Kstate?

    Two questions. First, when was it that JP reached out to Big East? Was it before Pitt and Cuse decided to move to ACC or after?

    I am seeing speculations that OU/OState/UT/TT moving to Pac while Missouri might be heading to SEC. That leaves KU and Kstate. Where are they going? Any ideas? Did they reach out to someone?

    I see. I definitely see Big East using Iowa State/baylor wanting to join them as a card they can play to attract other Big XII schools.

    The press is absolutely clueless on this whole realignment thing. Pitt and Syracuse are evidence of this, they had no idea about it until after it happened...

    I am starting to think it is all a manufactured ruse, besides what we know about A&M (from A&M and SEC's official statements)

    The problem here is a lot of people are giving ESPN too much credit. They have about 5-10 people who are reporting on this ****, and they each change their story about every 2 hours. Not that any other reporter has been better, but ESPN is trying to act like they know all, when in all actuality, they probably know the least.

    You're right. Funnier yet is looking back over Chip Brown's "you heard it here first" Tweets! On Saturday he tweeted "Remember where you heard it first about the ACC getting active in Realignment two weeks ago". Followed by "If Big 12 falls apart, Texas is still leaning toward ACC."

    Then he tweets, "Sources telling Orangebloods.com Texas is focusing solely right now on Pac-16."

    I guess when you throw out every scenario possible you can always say "I told you so". None of the them have a clue.

    I still wonder if "reached out to Big East" had something to do with a merger and not BU & ISU "begging to join Big East," which is how it was presented.

    How about if we quit worrying about how accurate ESPN is and we just go by what Jamie says? Wait a minute.............

    Send these questions in to Marty Tirrell. He's got all the answers.

    What is he supposed to say? The ISU entire athletic department is wondering what will happen, as we all are. The mood is very dark over at the Jake.
