    Board of Regents Statement

    Sorry if this was already posted -

    Board Of Regents Statement

    The following statement was released by Board of Regents President David Miles on Thursday:'The speculation about re-alignment of college athletic conferences is understandably a matter of concern right now for the faculty and staff, the students, the fans, alumni and friends of Iowa State University."Today’s announcement by the University of Colorado that it will be leaving the Big 12 Conference to join the Pac 10 Conference is disappointing. Certainly, this change and others that are reportedly being discussed could have a significant, negative impact on Iowa State."The Board of Regents is proud of the athletics program at Iowa State, the professionalism of the administration, the enthusiasm and loyalty of the fans and supporters, and of course, the dedication and achievements of the student athletes. While considerable attention is focused on membership in athletic conferences, this should not overshadow the many accomplishments of our student athletes. For example, Iowa State’s Lisa Koll yesterday recorded a remarkable achievement: her third NCAA championship when she won the 10,000-meter race at the NCAA outdoor championships in Eugene, Oregon. Additionally, Iowa State University led the Big 12 student athlete graduation rate at 79 percent in the latest rankings."Iowa State President Gregory Geoffroy and Athletics Director Jamie Pollard are working diligently to ensure the best possible outcome for Iowa State. This includes talks with other presidents, chancellors and athletics directors, as well as with Governor Culver and members of Iowa’s congressional delegation."The Board of Regents applauds and supports these efforts."

    Re: Board of Regents Statement

    Yes I did see that buried in another thread. I do feel bad that Lisa Koll has been overshadowed the last few days. I believe she is arguably one of the Top 5 Athletes (Men or Women) that have ever been at Iowa State University EVER; and unarguably the #1 Most Attractive.

    That statement was as dry as a saltine cracker. But thank you Board of Regents, now go make it happen for ISU.

    Yeah, and all of the things mentioned mean nothing. We'd be better off in California with a 3yr probation from the NCAA. I'm ******!

    I actually like it.


    “Science investigates; religion interprets. Science gives man knowledge, which is power; religion gives man wisdom, which is control. Science deals mainly with facts; religion deals mainly with values. The two are not rivals. They are complementary.”

    Let me paraphrase:"You guys do some good things in the classroom but when push comes to shove we don't really care as long as Iowa is in good shape. They are so we will talk to ya later."


    It's all snark from here on out

    Should have finished with "the regents will instruct iowa to vote no to any potential big 10 expansion that would adversely affect ISU"

    I just wonder what would be done if this was happening on the east side of the state? Not this, you could bet on that.

    Basically a, "Hey **** sucks right now, but you need to.... SQUIRREL!"


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?
