    point of clarification...

    it is good to have a back up plan; however, if this is it I want everyone involved fired!

    That's not a backup plan, that's a suicide plan.

    Re: It's good to have a backup plan - MWC!

    Of course there was some sort of conversation. How would the MWC not at least make the phone call? Even call twice.
    That doesn't mean we're looking at them as a serious option.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    They reached out to us. Perfect example of modern journalism. Make the headline sensationalize the facts. This is a backup plan for the MWC not us.

    I'm in with an old Twin Lakes Conference guy! I have a shovel to burry the bodies!

    by the way, I have no idea why we left the Conference, but I suspect it was because too many concessions were being offered to Pocahontas.

    Re: It's good to have a backup plan - MWC!

    This really ticked me off. I completely understand that the Mountain West would call us. But the Register has been pushing the Mountain West on us for a while now.

    In pretty much every chat done by their "reporters" when asked where they think ISU will end up, they say MWC. And that stupid article by Hanson mentioned the MWC as the most likely.

    And yet have we seen a positive opinion sports piece about the reasons why Iowa State belongs in a conference better than the MWC in the Register? Nope. But we've seen that in the Kansas City paper. We've seen that a bit in the national media. But the REgister? Not at all. It makes me very angry.

    MWC: "We want you ISU because you would be far and away better than every school in our conference"

    ISU: "Thanks but no thanks"
