    Angry Conf. change threads out of control! Neg. Rep. Needed!

    We need to reinstate neg. rep. to help prevent the idiotic [unfortunate] "quitertude" that has befallen some of our former brethren. Or better yet, [please] figure out a way that I can physically distribute wedgies[signed memorandums] to the lame quitters[adversity challenged] that are seriously contemplating leaving one of the premier conferences in the NCAA...

    If we ever changed conferences and actually somehow managed to get good, then these losers [unfortunate souls] would be the first to whine [be understandably upset] about not having an automatic BCS bid...

    This crap is driving me crazy! [All of this nonsense has made me emotionally unstable.] (and thank goodness there is no negative rep. to be distributed to me!)

    Don't forget the "our fans suck for not causing a win" and "put in Tiller" threads.

    I would merge this, but it is impossible to pick a single topic....

    Maybe we should just start a thread titled.

    "We absolutely suck at Football" Seems pretty appropriate.

    I think negative rep should stay gone.

    Re: Conf. change threads out of control! Neg. Rep. Needed!

    i agree with this. CloneToTheBone's post about us not being fit for the Big XII absolutely infuriated me.

    People need to remember that we have historically been bad in football because the resources were not put toward football to get it/keep it competitive. NOW THEY ARE, but it takes time to 'catch up' to the programs that have been fine-tuning their machines for several years.

    Besides we have championship caliber sports in the Big XII right now. Women's basketball, Wrestling, Volleyball, Gynmastics. And quitters like Bone think we should lower ourselves simply because our football team hasn't been competitive recently.

    My message to him and others like him: Find another team to root for - preferably in Missouri Valley, since that is the level you seem to want to root for.

    Like neg. rep is really going to stop those threads. I don't like em either but seriously I could get neg rep for every post I make and I would care less about it because in the end it's just a message board and a place where anyone can post their thoughts and opinions.

    Yeah, but what if there was a way for people to take away your CREDITS!? Then it would matter!

    Of course I'm only saying that because I've lost 2+ mil on the clones this season and I can't buy those new shoes I was hoping for.

    Eh, credits is fake money basically too. Again, if someone feels really passionate about saying something they are going to say it neg rep or not.

    Re: Conf. change threads out of control! Neg. Rep. Needed!

    It seems as those in the CloneToTheBone camp are convinced that we can not experience success in the Big 12 because we haven't and the obstacles are to great.

    If that is the case, I would prefer being in a conference where there was hope as opposed to no hope at all. I would rather be successful at a lower level than be a doormat.

    But since I'm an optimist and will not back down if there is even the most remote chance, I'll resist the idea to step down to a lesser conference.

    I don't think any worse of either side on this issue. I value the discourse and believe that both sides are only articulating what they believe would be in the best interests of ISU.

    Because 371 passing yards in one games isnt enough.
