    DIAF, Tim in Louisville

    From Big 12 mailbag - Big 12 Blog - ESPN

    Tim in Louisville, Ky., writes: With all the talk about whether the Big 12 should add more teams, I wondered about the possibility of replacing teams. I am a big fan of quality over quantity and would rather see BYU replace an Iowa State. Do you have any insight as to what it takes for conferences to get rid of schools?


    I noticed that during the low periods of my life, when I was suffering from anguish, sorrow or defeat, I could see only one set of footprints, so I said to the Lord,
    “You promised me Lord, that if I followed you, you would walk with me always. During the most trying periods of my life there has only been one set of footprints in the sand. Why, when I needed you most, have you not been there for me?”
    “Because,” says the Lord, “Sandpeople always ride single-file, to hide their numbers.”

    We shouldn't dignify that with a response.

    This is me inserting the obligatory and totally unnecessary "u mad brah?"

    Jake Trotter: Tim, you’re fortunate I left your last name off this submission. Otherwise, all of Ames would be at your doorstep.
    I am quickly liking this Jake Trotter guy.

    If you're reading between the lines, Jake Trotter was calling him an idiot in the response.

    Re: DIAF, Tim in Louisville

    The question should never have been posted in the mailbag to begin with...nothing good can come from answering that...even if it is to publicly respond with a veiled "you're an idiot" message. Poor form, Jake Trotter.

    Considering his intelliegence level, I'm guessing he's moved on to meth that his sister cooks.

    Re: DIAF, Tim in Louisville

    Is Ubben not doing the Big 12 anymore, or is this Trotter guy just a 2nd guy covering the Big 12?

    Re: DIAF, Tim in Louisville

    I read that too. Shouldn't even have been posted. No one at ESPN likes ISU, especially Ubben, who is a douhce.

    Has Ubben ever done the Big 12? I've always viewed him as a shill for Texas and sometimes Oklahoma.
