    If this all works out....

    ... will everyone understand why it was important for JP and GG to not be out running their mouths everyday about going somewhere else?

    Spot on. They have handled this situation as perfect as they could have. They have said and done all the right things.

    We are sooooooo lucky to have these two on board.

    Because then you will look like Missouri. They had their heart set that they were going to the Big 10, and sounded like they stuck their middle fingers at the Big 12. Now they have no where to go and and are pleading for the league to stick together.

    Re: If this all works out....

    Look at the ups and downs that have existed on here in the last 24 hours, let alone over the past few weeks.

    It's natural that people would want someone that represents them in a position of power to come out and tell them that everything will be fine.

    However, in this case you are right. Plus it's fairly obvious in this case that Pollard had no real influence over what was going to happen. He is at the mercy of the Texas people making the decision where to go.

    Since he wasn't impacting the decision, there really is nothing to tell the fans of Iowa State.

    The last thing they needed to do was pop off in the media. Look no further than Missouri's current dilemma to understand why.

    Amen. Watching the posts on here was like re-living my wife's last pregnancy all over again...........zero perspective, all emotion.

    You would think so. . . JP and GG handled this absolutely the right way. We did our work behind the scenes, and waited to see how everything shook out. This way, we don't look incredibly foolish now (ahem, Mizzou).

    In the end? Hasn't that unfortunately been the case all along?

    Got that right. We controlled nothing the entire time. If this works out we are lucky, and I'll have to rescind my comments about Beebe. Even this is a good deal, especially considering the alternative...

    Now, on to the Texas conspiracy rumors that they never wanted to leave the conference but just wanted schools like K-State, I-State, Baylor, Mizzou to recognize their place in the pecking order.

    Was there ever any question between these two schools?
