You didn't answer my question in a previous thread when you said a "source" says it's UIC. I asked how credible is this source and has the source been correct before? I ask because you haven't wavered.

Fairly solid.

RE: MVC to hold emergency meeting on Sunday in Saint Louis (Rothstein)
better way to say it is "Wichita state is joining AAC as full member. Then get into the details about not offering FB. Afterall they will(would?) be a full member in all sports they and the conference sponsor

As far as soda/pop/soft drinks, around here people ask for a cola or lemon/lime drink by brand name (coke/pepsi, sprite/7up) but usually ask for other flavors by generic name (orange, root beer ginger ale) exception Dr pepper

They can ask, but there's no particular reason for the MAC to extend the invitation if they are the #13 school.

If a compelling #13 was out there looking to join the MAC, it seems like the MAC could have moved already, with an invite to JMU as #14.

Yes. It personally annoys me because it's an inaccurate term on its face, but that's what people generally mean to be a "basketball-only" school.

Yup. Its like people asking for a "Coke" when they really are asking for a soft drink.
Count me in the "Olympic-sports" camp.

I am not much annoyed by it, because those kinds of things don't bother me much, but it's even worse than asking for a "Coke" when you mean some other soft drink (particularly common in the Greater Atlanta area) ...

... because you can actually have a Coke, but basketball is literally the only Division I sport where you can't be a member "only" for that sport ... under NCAA rules, there are no DivI affiliate memberships for Basketball. You have to play M&W basketball in your multi-sports conference.

After all these years, the Internet is still rife with grammar Nazi's and those who insist on proper syntax. Not that I don't see your point.

so how do you ask for something other than coke? I know what you're talking about. I'm from the south but that has always irked me. I ask for exactly the brand name that I want when I'm out someplace. If I'm a guest at someone's house I usually ask if they have anything I can drink.

AFAIR, in a restaurant, after you say you want a Coke, the waitress asks what kind of Coke you want. That's when you say, "Dr. Pepper", or whatever.

But if you think you are inside of "Coke = soda = pop" territory, but you are out in "Coke = main product of NYSE:KO" territory, you'll just get a Coke. After drinking proper Coke with cane sugar in Beijing, that's a disappointment, so I don't bother trying to "talk native" and go ahead and order what I want.

I always ask what sodas or soft drinks places have. This confused people in Cleveland at first but not so much nowadays. I still have fun making fun of people saying pop around here (grow up Cleveland you sound like little kids!) especially since most of the national brands say soda on them.

Yeah, they sure do talk funny up at the Mistake on the Lake.

But hell, everybody talks funny these days. Why back in the day theys was all called sodie-pop, and we liked it. Not only was you kids too lazy to keep using the proper name, you couldn't even agree on which half to use!

And another thing, about these namby-pamby "roughing the passer" rules ... {continues} ... and I put an onion on my belt ... {continues} ...

It's a package deal. The emergency meeting will also pinkslip Doug Elgin and name Arkansas Tech's realignment expert as his replacement.
