  1. ESPN host calls on Notre Dame to drop racist mascot

    That’s why I’m so pissed.
  2. ESPN host calls on Notre Dame to drop racist mascot

    I wouldn’t expect anything less from a fan of a mascot that stole land from natives, murdered them, raped their children, abused horses, cows and sheep, and celebrate violence and guns. It’s easy to get offended.
  3. ESPN host calls on Notre Dame to drop racist mascot

    I think this is dumb but people can't.... well, shouldn't be able to have their cake and eat it too. If you're going to make a big stink about all the other people mascots, Norte Dame should be up for grabs too. The only reason it isn't is because it's a white mascot. Fighting Irish... fighting is a huge stereotype. A leprechaun as a stand in for an Irish person. Dressed in green with his hands up? The only thing that it needs is a whiskey bottle in one hand, a baby on the floor and a wife with a black eye.
  4. Will they clean grass stains?
  5. JMU vs NDSU - FCS Championship Game

    Yes, but that's not irrational or erroneous love for Texas. It's based on fact.
  6. Borrego turns down the Lobos

    My understanding was that Ettore Messina is tabbed to take over the Spurs when Pop goes. At least, that's how it was advertised by the San Antonio media when he came here. 4-time Euroleague winner, 5 losses in the Euroleague finals and 2 semifinal losses with a career winning percentage of .740. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ettore_Messina
  7. Conference USA on the verge of collapse?

    And the SWC dissolved. You know now it very well may include SMU but I think it will be a mistake. The Texas Legislature does like to throw its weight around. SMU minus the massive cheating of the 80s hasn't done anything since the... 50s (?). They have money, but don't really prioritize sports. Now that being said, the same thing was said about TCU around 98-00 but they've made huge turn around and put money in their sports and had success. In the end, I just don't think it would benefit the Big 12 to have 2 schools in the Metroplex if they are still getting decent media contracts unless SMU turns into TCU or Boise.
  8. Conference USA on the verge of collapse?

    I'd say less for SMU as long as TCU is in the Big 12. Houston, TCU, and Baylor seems sparse to cover Texas assuming that Tech gets a ride somewhere. But theres no Big 12 level schools around Austin (excluding Texas if they leave) and San Antonio to cover that hole.
  9. Wichita St to the AAC

    Yeah, I thought of UConn as an example after someone mentioned Villanova, but was too lazy to update my statements on here. So there is that. Obviously, it's not widespread and I'm not sure if there's been some NCAA rule change on it as they did in the late 90s with DII schools playing certain sports or the numbers of sports in DI. So there seems to be the ability for an FBS conference school to play FCS football (absent NCAA rule changes or those schools having been grandfathered in or something). The next question is can FBS conferences stop member schools from upgrading their football into that conference. Can the AAC not grant membership to Wichita State's football though they are a full member if they decide to go FBS? I'd think that they can't stop it but I'm not certain. Norte Dame plays outside their main conference but that's by choice rather than refusal to be admitted.
  10. Wichita St to the AAC

    It could end up affecting the MVFC. If the MVC ends up adding both, I'd think that they have to find Murray State a spot in the MVFC, which gives them 6 members and allows them to bring it in house if they want. More importantly, it wounds the OVC which then needs to add and so does Horizon League, which I think are both above the Summit. Depending on who the Summit pulls in, it could get interesting for the MVFC. I'd assume that everyone would like to keep the MVFC together since it's worked out so well for everyone.
  11. Wichita St to the AAC

    Good call! I forgot about them.
  12. Wichita St to the AAC

    Those are Division I conferences, not FBS or even FCS and the schools play FCS football. I know of FCS schools that play in an another football league, the Pioneer, but my understanding is that it's their choice (Campbell) to do so and they could move to their home conferences if they want to (with the scholarship upgrades of course). With Campbell's move their are no FCS conferences with members in other football leagues(Pioneer).
  13. Wichita St to the AAC

    But the money is in FBS football especially if the AAC gets a better contract next go. Anyways it's all good. I mean just trying to see the logistics and if it was possible. They may not want football at all or just have pulled an amazing con to get into the best FBS available to them and then start FBS football. It will be years before we know.
  14. Wichita St to the AAC

    And if they decide to move to FBS, I assume the AAC can't stop them without threats to kick them out. Im just play devils advocate to an extent. I find it interesting. Wichita State has placed themselves in a great position. If they don't want football, then they are in a great conference for basketball. If they want to add football, they they are on the best conference available to them and can potentially restart football and move it up at their pace. If the Wichita move leads to a renaissance in basketball, it may make it harder to expel Wichita if they try to restart football as the basketball schools may not want rock the boat.
