Re: My Midnight Train Theory CHOOO! CHOOO!

What I would like to know from Jared and the folks who were posting on here with sources (MTA, Wacfan08) is what those sources are saying now. Are they saying things are totally done, or are they still saying this is a work in progress with the MWC just deciding not to commit to anything last week? ...

He was referring to a 1964 game against Boston College in which USU lost, not last nights game against Hawaii.

Re: Boise's President on adding USU

The more that comes out in the days after the meetings, the more I am inclined to believe this is a work still in progress. It is clear this meeting was about TV deals and not expansion, and the only way we would/could have seen a USU invite this week was if all of the details for a television deal ...

Re: The best revenge

I know that football is driving this bus recently, but I have a hard time fathoming basketball being totally irrelevant. Perhaps in the Big Ten or SEC, where football is god and multiple BCS bids are common. But for a conference like the MWC (or WAC) the amount of money and exposure that can come fr...

The best revenge

Right now, the best way to stick it to the MWC, would be for USU basketball to make a great Cinderella run in the NCAA tournament and become the darling of the national sports scene much like George Mason a few years ago.

Re: MWC going to 14? USU not included...

Texas and TCU are long shots IMHO. TCU just landed AQ status in a league with the largest television markets in the country. Texas own the Big-12. In fact any of the current Big-12 south schools are a out of the question IMHO. If a Big-12 school were interested in coming over, and that is a huge if,...

Re: I saw a T-shirt that said......

I'd rather be the PAC 10s seventh choice and be in, than out like us and BYU.

Re: What's the word part 3

I think we'd all love to know wacfan08's source. But I think we all know that for the sake of protecting some sense of confidentiality we should back off in trying to pin it down. Thanks for all of the info though wacfan08, nice to see some thoughtful, detailed and reasonable information being posted.

Re: What high school did you go to...

Hanover (NH), class of 1989. We hated Lebanon. We were the classy smart ones from the Ivy League town, they were the hicks. Best rivalry memory was a hockey game at the rink our two schools shared. The second period the Lebanon goalie, was down in our end and our fans were on him so bad he was distr...

Re: WAC Expansion: Rate the possible teams!

Regarding #9 UC Davis is not part of the CSU system, it is part of the UC system, which is separate. Do not know about the funding issues of the UC system vs the CSU system, but they are different systems. And the UC system is far more prestigious (UCLA, UC Berkley etc. vs. Fresno State, CS Fullerto...
