    This expansion talk is juicy. Other than Allbuffs, where are the Colorado voices?
    The headlines pour out of Chip Brown and Orangebloods. The Dallas Morning News is posting letters from a regent at a BCS school who is badmouthing CU. Kenneth Starr is holding press conferences.

    Certainly somebody at the Denver Post has an opinion about all this, other than some tuck tail piece by Kisza.

    Certainly somebody at the Colorado state house has something to say about their counterparts in the Texas legislature.

    Doesn't a Regent or a Chancellor or (gasp) a President have something, anything, to say following this weekend's assalt? What about a mayor or state representative or other elected official jump all over this assalt?

    The Daily Camera has a story on the difference in highway miles between Pac10 and Big12. Is that all they got?

    I can understand the CUAD's silence. They aren't going to burn any bridges with the B12 until they have a formal invitation in hand.

    But why is everyone else, (message board's excluded), so quiet?

    Maybe they are just letting the Texas media bury themselves.

    That is what I am hoping for anyway. I asked my mom if she has heard anything in Oklahoma and she said very little has been said (of course she isn't looking either). Hopefully Texas is grasping at straws here. As someone said in another thread, the Pac is getting a good preview of what they are in for with Texas.

    Colorado Springs news just had a blurb...."CU in the MWC may be a real possibility."

    **** you.

    My impression of the Denver sports media is that most of them would rather harm CU than help CU. I hope I'm wrong about this.

    Frankly, I'd prefer they remain silent..... Along with Bob Bohner.

    I've seen quite a bit from them. Lombardi has done some things. The Post has written about it. Hey, Denver has a lot going on, unlike, say, Lincoln.

    Because right now the Texas media, the Texas Legislature, and Baylor are all doing the Denver media's job for them. Bashing CU. :smile2:

    Sad but true. Not to mention inexplicable.

    Regardless of the Denver media, Kyle Ringo was on ESPN the other day when Outside The Lines was talking about the expansion. We are being noticed, I do wish more people cared.

    Yeah he was probably pushing for a MWC invite for CU.

    Can anybody outline the times (and call in #s) for the sports talk radio shows? I'd like to call in, but don't know when or to where - thanks

    This is the same media that has spent the last 10 years wishing DAVE LOGAN would be CU's next head football coach.

    I think the Denver media would absolutely positively love it if CU, CSU, and Air Force were all in ONE conference.

    I agree that the Denver media would prefer that CU join the MWC. The Texas schools might destablize the Pac-10 while the MWC has been very stable.

    Yeah, the MWC has been anything but stable.

    First it was the WAC. Then they over-expanded and a bunch of teams split to form the MWC.

    Then TCU was added to the mix to get into Texas.

    Now they're talking about bringing some WAC teams back into the conference.

    Fact is, every conference other than the PAC, Big 10, SEC and Big 12 have been scrambling during the past 15 years in an attempt to keep up with the Big 4.

    But SDSU has consistantly sucked. I guess there's some stability in that.
