Conference Realignment: Why Iowa State Is More Important Than You Think, by Paul Shirley
Paul Shirley might not be the most likable ISU alum to get famous, but he is certainly the smartest and most eloquent, at least in writing.
Good stuff by Paul, and I hadn't seen it from angle yet.
He makes points, but most of them aren't very good ones (at least not from an ESPN standpoint). Though I do like what he is trying to say.
I agree that it comes at from a totally different perspective than anything else I've seen. It's nice to read something from him that isn't dripping with sarcasm and contempt toward his alma mater.
Always enjoy reading Paul Shirley's stuff. You know he won't feed you and BS and speaks what some others are afraid of doing. You can tell just how smart he is by reading some of his articles. Good Stuff, thanks for posting.
Nice article crybaby.
Great piece by Paul.
Al, did you realize the date on your pic is from 2010?
Holy ****, I agree with Paul Shirley
Good job Paul Shirley!
aaand this is probably why he usually rips on ISU.
What does Paul Shirley do for a living? I can't imagine his bball and writing money has kept him afloat.
Oh and I liked his blog, he is talented.
His book is #557,865 in books on Amazon.....
Wrong. He rips on ISU, so I rip on him. I know him personally, and he is a huge donkey.
I largely agree with what he is saying. It's the same argument that many have made as to why UT and OU are better off in the B12, he just uses it to focus on ISU. That is, if you formulate "super conferences" with all of the best teams winning percentages are going to go down lower than at least some of those schools would like.
Good article. I agree. The lust for money is about to kill the only genuine level of sport that we have (aside from high school, etc). I have very little passion for anything other than college sports, because the money is first and foremost in every professional sport, and it shows, regardless of how they try to cover over it.
But it's the pros, and it's a business, so I tolerate that. Grubbing for cash at this level is something far worse, and it's stain shows up far worse beside the relative purity of the collegiate game.
Good article, minus his shot at ISU towards the end. When will he realize he never had a shot to be a decent NBA player?
