    Report: MWC eyes KU, Missouri, K-State

    Report: Kansas Jayhawks, Missouri Tigers on Mountain West Conference's radar - ESPN

    Wow, ISU not even mentioned.

    According to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Kansas, Missouri and Kansas State are on the Mountain West's radar amid a continuing shakeup of the Big 12.

    But Baylor isn't considered a candidate to join the conference, with TCU standing staunchly in its way, the Fort Worth newspaper reported, citing unnamed sources.

    What an ungrateful conference...and a lot of you want to go to that?! Sound like a more secluded Big 12 to me...not a good thing. Here we have the Big East that wants us, and then the little MWC has been thumbing their nose at us like France to the USA.

    The MWC is like France? Let's send CPR over there, and they will throw up the white flag and disband.

    Biggest problem is this article was written in a Fort Worth newspaper and not an existing MWC city publication. It is a Texas perspective which never includes ISU.

    More Texas arrogance. It has nothing to do with the MWC.

    TCU is in the MWC. They are in the DFW region...actually I believe TCU is in Ft Worth? Or am I missing your point?

    True, but the MWC's message board proved their worth.

    That is essentially what TO said yesterday - UT and others were running around to see what kind of deals they could get so Nebby said their instability made them focus to just go Big Ten. He blamed the wheeler dealers.

    My bad...

    Still a Texas perspective. The state of Iowa doesn't exist for them.

    Guess we are just going to have to beat UT this year. We are on no one's radar screen. We may be looking for a conference as we play football this season.

    So the way to get an audition is to just win baby. This has turned into a pivotal season for ISU football. We must win eight games. Our future might depend on it.

    Re: Report: MWC eyes KU, Missouri, K-State

    what i noticed is that its saying baylor isn't a candidate, if only missouri, kansas, and kansas state joined they would have 13 teams, which probably wouldn't work. i would assume ISU would fill that spot in this scenario

    I hadn't seen that yet (shocking that I haven't got through the 3,385 conference alignment threads), thanks for reposting.

    That wouldn't be a bad setup...although I like the idea of the Big 12 rejects inviting other schools to form a new Big 12, give us more control.
