    It raises the question about Cyclone fans...........

    CBS reports, "Missouri fans are reportedly lobbying administrators heavily via email to leave the contentious Big 12. " HEAVILY by email.

    It raises the question about Cyclone fans. I wonder what % of fans actually SENT emails to ISU administrators lobbying their preferred stance on recent realignment issues. I am guessing less than 5% of this forum bothered sending an email. Maybe you don't think it matters. Maybe it doesn't.

    But,,,,,,,, I doubt Pollard is going to take into account any opinions or be swayed by unnamed Fanatic forum writers.

    It wouldn't BE so contentious if Mizzou could leave her skirts down once in a while.

    Write him an email and tell him what? That ISU would like to go to the SEC or Big Ten?

    And yet by the standard set today on CF, it seems almost sensible compared to some of the other threads.

    Re: It raises the question about Cyclone fans...........

    I know I will catch a lot of hate for this, but I don't blame MU fans for wanting out of the conference. It seems pretty obvious that UT will never agree to get rid of the LHN or morph it into a Big 12 network, as long as UT is in this conference none of the other teams will enjoy a more level playing field. Which other conferences do; no other conference in the country has an institution that wields as much power over it as UT does over the Big 12. Having said that I hope Missouri decides to stay for our sake, because I don't think we have a better option than the Big12 at this point.

    It raises no questions about isu fans. Isu fans have no conf destination to demand we accept an invite to.

    Mizzou apparently has an sec invite and their fans are demanding a change.

    What stance do you think isu fans should take??

    It was pretty clear that isu and isu fans wanted the big 12 to survive. Our AD didn't need an email campaign to figure that out.

    Is this similar to the Big 10 invite? I think they might need to count their chickens again.
