    Apprently we already had our shot at joining the Big 10

    I found this article in the Pittsburgh Post Gazette from 1946. Basically it says that the University of Chicago is leaving and that the following teams are possible replacements. Pittsburgh, Nebraska, Michigan State, Marquette, Notre Dame and Iowa State. Eventually Michigan State took the place, but found it interesting.

    that is boredom


    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

    Cool find.

    Note the sub-story ... how Pitt was considered "just as bad as (Univ) Chicago as an attraction."

    It appears that, back then, competitive stature seemed to be the driving force for conference memberships.

    what was interesting in the "freedom" link, was the link to this article:

    Show-Me? Mizzou feels it has done enough to earn Big Ten invite - NCAA Football - CBSSports.com

    Notice, Mizzou seems to feel ISU is above them on the academic ladder.

    Re: Apprently we already had our shot at joining the Big 10

    It looks to me like Mizzou has the same feelings about texas-centric as I do...Yeah the good old Longhorns ruined and imploded the southwest conference and will do the same thing to the big 12 or is it the Little Ten????


    Whatever it is its a bogus league that favors the texas schools and no one else in the conference.


    Good bye mizzou and nebbie....ISU will be joining you in another conference in a few years.....


    Good Bye Texas-Centric Big 12...........


    And Good Freaking Riddance to your sorry A**

    Let the bashing begin!!!!!!!!!!
