Conference Realignment


Serious Late

I am not surprised to hear Missouri State is moving up. That rumor has been going around for a few years.

I grew up near ISU and I also feel like they should be higher profile. When I was younger, I heard a rumor that an Illinois Assemblyman that graduated from Illinois but who represented the Bloomington-Normal area put forward a bill to have UI and ISU play annually in football, with the hope of building up ISU but that did not pan out. Then in the late-2000s/early-2010s the State of Illinois was trying to 'get a second state school in the Big 10' and many thought that ISU could built up to that, that obviously did not happen. All that to say, ISU was the first state school but Illinois grew and gained most of the attention.
The Valley has been a breeding ground for programs moving up in basketball, but a football driven move is a first for the conference, isn't it?

I don't even know if I was a Missouri State fan that this would be all that exciting. The basketball side of C-USA is gross, and they are bottom of the pack in FBS Football...

Who am I kidding, I'm sure most MSU fans see this as just the start of their journey to the SEC. šŸ˜€
Saw something I really want to share, no one I know would appreciate this, hopefully you all doā€¦.

I saw a vanity license plate complete with frame. Presumably this person went to USC for undergrad and to Michigan for MBA, since the frame was the Michigan school of business.
The plate itself read ā€œSC 2 UMā€ā€¦. Scum lol

I think itā€™s funny at least. Person is either shameless, or not very bright. Iā€™d like to think both of those institutions failed them, as I hate them both.
