    Got an idea Mr Barnes!

    You obviously have a tough decision to make about where to go to school. Why not make it easier on your self and make the fan bases prove they are worthy of you in the form of a online poll. You could even do it as a bracket.

    UCLA
    Kansas

    North Carolina
    Oklahoma

    Duke
    Iowa State

    This way, no fan base can be upset at you for you decision either, they will have to be upset at themselves and it makes it more entertaining (I'll put 2,586,000 credits on ISU to win).

    Could a mod at least fix it, please? "Got an idea"?




    Part of this fanbase is like the parable of the blind men and the elephant.

    Who knew?

    How can you have a bracket of 6 teams? What happens in round 2, does ISU go against the winner of UCLA/KU or NC/OU?

    The real bracket should look like this:

    Memphis
    vs.
    AIB

    Morningside
    vs.
    Briar Cliff

    Rensselaer Polytechnic
    vs.
    Lomonsov State University

    Iowa State
    vs.
    DMACC


    Gene Smith, 1993-2000. 7 years, 6 NCAA's, 1 bowl game. Revenue sports postseason participation 50%. Good.
    Bruce Vandevelde, 2000-20005. 5 years, 4 bowl games, 2 NCAA's, 2 NIT's. Postseason participation 80%. Better.
    Jamie Pollard, 2005-. 4 years. 1 bowl game, 0 NCAA's, 0 NIT's. Postseason participation: 13%. The next big step.

    My ignore list: splitidentity, tarheelhawk,superdorf, clones_jer. That is all.
