No, but Iowa State is good this year.. unless you think Mizzou sucks, because they are the worst team ISU has lost to. And they are lucky they played ISU when they did instead of now that they are starting to click. They were also a better team last year than they were the year before when they won their Bowl game.

Thats the only game all year that ISU played that poorly in. They beat themselves. They've played much better against much better teams. If Barnett was our QB instead of three and out Jantz it wouldn't have been like that at all. Jantz was great, until he got hurt. Then the offense just couldn't move because his mobility was a big part of his success.

Nah I understand that thats probably the only ISU game you guys watched this year, so its a little harder for you to grasp thats not how they normally play.

Their other losses they would look like the more dominate team up until either fumbling, throwing an INT, or committing a stupid penalty in a key situation. But thats too be expected from a young team I guess. Good thing most of them are returning next year :)

SOMEONE IS PAYING PEOPLE TO FILL SEATS AT A LARGE ATHLETIC EVENT IN INDIANA

http://cdn3.sbnation.com/profile_images/178557/IMG_0172_tiny.JPG by Spencer Hall (http://www.sbnation.com/users/Spencer%20Hall)

So this Craigslist ad appears on Indianapolis' Craigslist site. It looks like this.

http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/808619/Screen_shot_2011-11-30_at_11.53.39_AM_medium.png (http://assets.sbnation.com/assets/808619/Screen_shot_2011-11-30_at_11.53.39_AM.png)

To save your eyes: it's a blanket ad requesting seat fillers (http://indianapolis.craigslist.org/evg/2727703432.html). While not mentioned by name, the B1G Championship is the only event in Indianapolis on Saturday night involving a Lucas Oil Field and fans showing up in green and red clothing. The pay: $75 for the event. (The link is still live, but in case it's yanked, hello screenshot.)

Being intrepid, curious, and fond of small cons, we got our hands on one of the email responses to an operative. (We also sent our own, but as of this post's writing we have not received a response. B1G speed, baby!) The response regurgitates a lot of what is in the ad, but includes this establishing that this is indeed for the B1G Championship. Our client has asked for discretion about this opportunity, as "seat-filling" is behind-the-scenes aspect of this event production.

On the day of the event event, we will designate a parking garage and validate your parking. Seat fillers will be assigned seats inside or near the event close to the event start time. We expect fillers will need to be checked in around 6:30pm on Saturday. The event itself begins shortly after 8pm, and we expect it to conclude close to midnight. You will receive payment at the end of the evening upon turning in the paperwork given to you at the beginning of the evening.
The letter is signed at the end from "ICC"

Unless you believe there is a completely parallel event involving the stadium, There is literally a nanosecond of detective work involved in figuring out that ICC stands for "Indianapolis Convention Center," the facility attached to Lucas Oil Stadium. The Big Ten's not lying when it says it's not paying for seat-fillers, but the tempting bit of verbiage there is "our client." That client could be a number of parties: the City of Indianapolis, FOX Sports, or the B1G, who wouldn't be lying when they said they weren't paying people, but who could in theory be paying the ICC to pay people to attend the game. (Then again, knowing what we know, so could we. EDSBS TROLLING THE B1G FROM THE INSIDE IT'S SO HAPPENING.)

Mondo tells me that Deloss Dodds has been chatting with the Pac 12 about a UT move in 2013. Pac 12 will cover exit fees and work with espn. Details coming soon. I just thought you might want to appreciate even more, if that's possible, your move to the SEC.

Pledging the media rights was discussed non-stop when the league was trying to keep A&M and Missouri. If every school signed it, the Big 12 would certainly throw a parade and send out mass press releases to try and prove to everyone else how stable the league is.

Because Oklahoma State is basically a community college, and the old school academic guard in the PAC still has a lot of power. I think the next round of expansion sees Texas and OU both shrugging off little brother(s) as they move to the PAC.

If the PAC was willing to accept Okie Lite, OU and oSu would both already be in the league. OU's desire to bring oSu with it is the REAL reason they came back to the Big Clusterf****. Unless you REALLY believe David Boren wanted to "save the league."

I'm not making any judgements about that poster. I'm making judgments about your logic.

Can we assume that TTRaider (as in T[exas]T[ech][Red]R[aider]) is getting his historically-reliable inside info because he has connections inside Texas Tech? It seems likely. If so, then you shouldn't then also claim that Texas Tech is "just along for the ride," lacking knowledge of "behind the scenes" goings-on.

That article asserts that all 10 Big IIX teams had signed the grant of rights at the point, but it was posted on November 2 - before Missouri's move to the SEC was announced.

It has been clearly stated by Missouri officials that Mizzou never granted its rights to the Big 12. That means this blog is inaccurate in that at least. What else is wrong? Hard to say how many teams actually signed the grant of rights.

It was referring to 9 and 10 being TCU and WVU. Which, as of the meeting on Nov 1, had both been accepted and signed over rights on the day of that article.

I'll bow out of this thread while I watch KSU do their part to win a share of something Missouri hasn't done in 40 years.

KSU has had a great year, no question. But it will have to be meaningful in the short term for KSU to "share" a conference title with the two teams that beat the Wildcats during conference play.

Clearly, you're on par with OSU and OU this year.

I'm not making any judgements about that poster. I'm making judgments about your logic.

Can we assume that TTRaider (as in T[exas]T[ech][Red]R[aider]) is getting his historically-reliable inside info because he has connections inside Texas Tech? It seems likely. If so, then you shouldn't then also claim that Texas Tech is "just along for the ride," lacking knowledge of "behind the scenes" goings-on.

I think it is a mistake to assume he is a Texas Tech insider or even fan just because of his handle. If someone has legit inside info, they are likely to be very careful to not leak their true identity.

How would a Texas Tech insider have such accurate info on Mizzou's move to the SEC, including dates of when Mizzou when hold a press conference? Why would a Tech insider only post this info on a Mizzou board? That doesn't make any sense. TTRaider could just as easily be a higher-up at Mizzou or Texas.

The athletic directors of the eight continuing and two new Big 12 Conference member institutions concluded two days of meetings today in New York City. The annual meeting was held in conjunction with this evening's National Football Foundation Hall of Fame induction banquet.

The ADs discussed football scheduling, the Bowl Championship Series, future television options, and governance matters, while also reaffirming the Big 12's commitment to hosting its men's basketball championship in Kansas City.

"Kansas City has a rich college basketball history," commented Big 12 Conference athletics director chairman and Iowa State University athletics director Jamie Pollard," and remains an attractive destination for our men's championship. It is an integral part of the Big 12 footprint and staging our championship at Sprint Center reinforces the strong presence of the Conference in the greater Kansas City area."

Last month, the Big 12 announced it would host its 2013 and 2014 women's soccer championships at LIVESTRONG Sporting Park in Kansas City, Kan. The Phillips 66 Big 12 Men's Basketball Championship is scheduled for Kansas City, Mo. through 2014.

If you don't understand that a small subset of a large set may not share all of the general attributes of the large set, then don't bother trying to figure out the logic.

Kansas is a flat state. Colorado is not. Yet there are parts of Kansas that are at higher elevations than some parts of Colorado.

If someone doesn't like mountains, it doesn't mean that he would be better off living on Mount Sunflower instead of in Wray, CO just because, as a whole, Colorado is more mountainous than Kansas.

While the rest of you are bitching about god knows what, I'm here to bitch about SDSU's move to the Big East.

It's football only. It's an increase of $2 million in TV revenue, and it's not until 2013. Coincidentally, 2013 is the year that a lot of people are estimating will be the last year of the Big East's AQ status in the BCS.

Being football only, the rest of the schools programs can't move to the Big East (not that they probably wanted to anyway). The Mountain West already set precedent by kicking BYU's sports programs out of the conference once BYU Football went independent. So now, the rest of our programs are going to move to the Big West, which consists of teams like Long Beach State, UC Santa Barbara, Cal State Fullerton, UC Davis, UC Riverside, etc.

This is horrible for our basketball program. We've started getting commits from 4 and 5 star recruits, but I'm pretty sure you can throw those out the window now.

If you don't understand that a small subset of a large set may not share all of the general attributes of the large set, then don't bother trying to figure out the logic.

Kansas is a flat state. Colorado is not. Yet there are parts of Kansas that are at higher elevations than some parts of Colorado.

If someone doesn't like mountains, it doesn't mean that he would be better off living on Mount Sunflower instead of in Wray, CO just because, as a whole, Colorado is more mountainous than Kansas.

So you're saying that the best Kansas has to offer is better than the best Missouri has to offer?

This isn't a binary. Not everyone that was worried about the economic impact to KC was on some Keitzman-level cartoon meltdown. Losing the tourney was a legitimate concern.

I live in a suburb of Kansas City, MO. The fact that Kansas City, MO spilled over into Kansas and created a nice place to live in an otherwise crappy state is really incidental to Kansas.

I put a lot of work into my lawn. My neighbor's lawn is shit. Sometimes, my nice grass grows across the property line and gives him a really nice patch of grass. that patch in his yard may be nicer than some problem areas in my yard. That doesn't mean that his yard, as a whole, is nicer than my lawn.

While the rest of you are bitching about god knows what, I'm here to bitch about SDSU's move to the Big East.

It's football only. It's an increase of $2 million in TV revenue, and it's not until 2013. Coincidentally, 2013 is the year that a lot of people are estimating will be the last year of the Big East's AQ status in the BCS.

Being football only, the rest of the schools programs can't move to the Big East (not that they probably wanted to anyway). The Mountain West already set precedent by kicking BYU's sports programs out of the conference once BYU Football went independent. So now, the rest of our programs are going to move to the Big West, which consists of teams like Long Beach State, UC Santa Barbara, Cal State Fullerton, UC Davis, UC Riverside, etc.

This is horrible for our basketball program. We've started getting commits from 4 and 5 star recruits, but I'm pretty sure you can throw those out the window now.

It sucks.

You could always try the self invite yourself to the big 12 route like SMU did. It might work out for you guys. :shrug:

SEC Tournament to KC?

Also, Alabama to play in Missouri SOON?

HURT: Expansion brings new markets
Cecil Hurt
TideSports.com Editor

As the interminable wait for the BCS championship game nears a more-manageable three-week countdown, there has been a window of opportunity to do a few different things - including the new territory that has been annexed into the Southeastern Conference.

Fortuitously, the University of Alabama basketball team was in Kansas City on Saturday (although not playing one of their future SEC brethren), which created a golden opportunity to look at the new western border of the league.

Technically, one could argue SEC territory stretches all the west to El Paso now (although I am not sure how strong the Aggie sentiment is in that community.) It's more instructive to consider the league's new territory as extending to a line down from Kansas City, through Fayetteville and into the Dallas and Houston megalopolises (or is it megalopoli?).

Those (and St. Louis) are the vaunted "new television" markets. Whether Kansas City is Missouri Tiger territory is another question - Kansas is far closer and there is a pervasive Jayhawk feel, or it seemed so to me.

Without belaboring points that have already been made about the cultural ties between this area and the South - yes, there are a lot of good barbecue places here - it is clear Kansas City is a sports town. The Chiefs are the clear heroes here, even in a dismal coach-fired year.

The most recognizable Alabama football names, perhaps even ahead of Nick Saban, are Javy Arenas and Wallace Gilberry. There's another Alabama link.

The big mural downtown at the Sprint Center is sports-related and features the legendary pitcher of the Kansas City Monarchs, Satchel Paige (from, you guessed it, Mobile, Alabama.) The point isn't to find every minuscule thread that leads back to Alabama. It's just to note Kansas City - and perhaps most of Missouri, outside of St. Louis - has proven college sports interest and should be fertile ground for the SEC.

Alabama football fans may get a chance to test that, more quickly than expected. Nothing official has been released concerning the expansion-altered SEC football schedule for 2012, but it would not surprise me if Alabama's first visit to Missouri comes sooner rather than later. It could come much sooner. Much, much sooner. Take that in the spirit of a Christmas hint.

There is also a solid chance the SEC basketball tournament will be coming to Kansas City in a few years - Missouri certainly wants it to be played in the Sprint Center - and that wouldn't be terrible.

The arena is the hub of the Power & Light district downtown and it would be roughly similar to having the tournament in Nashville. The difference, of course, is it wouldn't be centrally located, and the crowd would be primarily Kentucky fans, sprinkled with Arkansas and Missouri. Face it, if the SEC Tournament were held in Anchorage, it would be "primarily Kentucky fans."

Certainly, expansion has its pros and cons, and it will be hotly debated again as soon as the new 2012 football schedule comes out. After all, you can't please everyone. But Texas A&M and Missouri are fine schools, and if growth was inevitable - and perhaps it was - there are certainly worse places to grow.

And Mizzou was filling its arena last year as well; we ended up in the top 40 I believe in National attendance last season.

Annually, Mizzou does a nice job with attendance. Everyone's kinda puzzled about the low turnout right now, but it's pretty novel.

Blah blah blah. KU had more fans in freaking Hawaii than MU did in Columbia. LMAO

I'll make a deal with you. If Mizzou only has 6,000 fans at the game and then launches an ad campaign claiming that Shreveport, LA is Mizzou country, you can have my signature line.

That's not true. Parts of Kansas are very close to Kansas City, Missouri which is pretty much the best part about Kansas.

We'll compare scoreboards after we play each other, I see no reason to compare anything at this point. And I wasn't taking about other schools, I was only talking about the shitty MU fans. KSU fasns have been good about supporting their school since OBZ first made his way over there.

Why do we keep swapping sports again?

Mizzou's football attendance ranks nationally every year. This year was no exception.

Our basketball attendance usually does as well and for reasons that folks in Columbia remain stumped about, isn't doing well this season.

It must be because we're all terrified by the Charlie Wies hire. I think that makes enough sense to fit into the logic that's been tossed around here this morning.

Saul Good was the one who brought up the records in KC. Kansas has played two games in KC: one was against MU at Arrowhead and the other was against Davidson at the Sprint Center. Last I checked, they don't play football inside the Sprint Center.

Do you think you guys were at 20% capacity by the end of most of those games? Resolve my ass; they went to the parking lot at half, drank more and decided not to go back in. Die-hards indeed.

This argument is just asinine. You folks have been trying to make it in about 10 different ways since the start of the football season when it was apparent that there were no legitimate arguments to make.

It was patently ridiculous when you were trying to do it then and it's nearly as stupid now.

Fansmack is just pretty much the last resort of schools that haven't won a conference game in 24 months and just got done losing to Davidson. It's also best left in the hands of useful idiots like Stewie and Wickedson.

You're aware that watching MU roll a cupcake by 45 points is a shitty product, right?

I've been to 3 games, all of them massacres. By the end of the game, you're just sitting around eating stale nachos and waiting for the Antlers to start their scoreboard chant.

Ass-kickings are dull. Hell, close games against lousy opponents are bad too because it usually means your guys spent 40 minutes kicking the ball around.

Expectations from the fanbase going into the season were as low as I can remember since the first year of Anderson's tenure. That drove the early-season attendance woes. Then the early-season patsies had a lot of people not believing in the team when the CBE started and they beat some quality opponents.

Since then, it's just been another run of crappy teams they've played (though the attendance at MSG was actually pretty solid for Mizzou).

Playing crappy teams is a shitty product. I'll be far more concerned with the attendance if folks are still staying away during conference season. Over the last several years, that hasn't been the case. We didn't have the longest home winning streak in the conference for no reason; Mizzou fans are historically very good fans.

We'll see if the trend holds out or if it's something we should be concerned about in a few weeks.

It's hard to get better when your biggest rivalry game is the worst team in major conference football. I mean, when you circle the Jayhawks on the schedule, its hard to get players to work to get better.

Thanks for your concern. You'll be happy to know that we have taken steps to resolve this problem. What's more is that, a few years from now, no BCS teams will have to worry about playing conference games against KU. That will be the MWC's problem.

Yeah, the last 3 years have been pretty bad over here. I don't think it's anything that can't be fixed. Not having enough TVs, though, that part might be kind of rough. I have no doubt that KU can be as good at football as MU with the right coaching hire. We could never match schools with tradition (like Nebraska, Oklahoma, etc) but we can certainly match MU.
