    Re: Conference USA or the MAC are the options

    you know there's a lot of speculation going on by people that don't really know what they're talking about, but when I want reliable and thought out commentary, i, like you, go to the idaho statesmen: idaho's #1 website for news and information

    Good call

    Better not go cUSA or MAC, that will decimate the athletic dept.

    Still makes no sense why the MWC wouldn't welcome all the former B12 members w/open arms.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    The Idaho Statesman? I think my facebook news feed might be more reliable than that thing.
    And no, I didn't even click the link to read the article.

    ISU would not drop to the MAC. Don't get why that's even a possibility in some minds. Conference USA or the Mountain West.

    Re: Conference USA or the MAC are the options

    I've heard it bandied about that the "buy-out" to leave the Big 12 is $10 million. Is that true ? (Also have heard that it takes a vote of 9 to dissolve the Big 12. Is that true ?)

    Re: Conference USA or the MAC are the options

    If those statements are both true; looks to me like four teams could be starting a conference expansion with a pile of cash.

    There are several scenarios that only leave 3 B12 teams instead of 4 though. That would be the ultimate kick in the nutz.

    That said...I can't wait until we land/stay in a power conference so we can flip a collective middle finger at the rest of the world.
