    Re: Confrence Realignment...why ISU matters by Paul Shirley

    Paul Shirley might not be the most likable ISU alum to get famous, but he is certainly the smartest and most eloquent, at least in writing.

    Good stuff by Paul, and I hadn't seen it from angle yet.

    He makes points, but most of them aren't very good ones (at least not from an ESPN standpoint). Though I do like what he is trying to say.

    I agree that it comes at from a totally different perspective than anything else I've seen. It's nice to read something from him that isn't dripping with sarcasm and contempt toward his alma mater.

    Always enjoy reading Paul Shirley's stuff. You know he won't feed you and BS and speaks what some others are afraid of doing. You can tell just how smart he is by reading some of his articles. Good Stuff, thanks for posting.

    Great piece by Paul.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Re: Confrence Realignment...why ISU matters by Paul Shirley

    What does Paul Shirley do for a living? I can't imagine his bball and writing money has kept him afloat.

    Oh and I liked his blog, he is talented.

    Wrong. He rips on ISU, so I rip on him. I know him personally, and he is a huge donkey.

    Re: Confrence Realignment...why ISU matters by Paul Shirley

    I largely agree with what he is saying. It's the same argument that many have made as to why UT and OU are better off in the B12, he just uses it to focus on ISU. That is, if you formulate "super conferences" with all of the best teams winning percentages are going to go down lower than at least some of those schools would like.
