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

Love getting the recognition, but I'm happy to remain D2 where we have a real chance for national titles.

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} ...

Chicago is generally "pop" territory, while downstate Illinois gets into "soda" territory. It's interesting because I believe that the urban vs. rural usage of pop and soda is reversed in some other places like the Northeastern states (where the urban areas use soda more and the rural areas use pop more).

In NY the divide is essentially Rochester east of that is soda and west of that is pop generally.

RE: MVC to hold emergency meeting on Sunday in Saint Louis (Rothstein)
If the MVC wanted my advice (apparently don't because they never call)
My first run would be going to 12.
I'd shoot for Texas-Arlington (scratches the itch for people liking markets, it's the 5th largest) plus Little Rock (slightly larger market than Tulsa, bridges UTA and MoSt, not a hub but has direct flights to Dallas and St. Louis, reasonable bus trip for non-revenue sports for most of the Valley) and Valparaiso just under 75 miles from Chicago O'Hare, helps keep the Public/Private balance in shape and one of the better known mid-major brands.

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.

You mean a pop?

I can usually tell when someone isn't a native Michigander/ Midwesterner because they use soda instead of pop. Then there's da UP. They have a language all their own.

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.

That's not really the case and I've lived in NC for 29 out of 38 years. If you ask for Coke you normally get the following question, if any. "Is Pepsi OK?" Otherwise you get a literal Coke. Based on my experience that's more something (Coke = general name for soda) you'd see in hole in the wall restaurant OR at an individuals house.

It's amazing to me how a topic just disintegrates into banal idiocy!

Well if you go south of the Ohio River its Coke country (or soft drink). And woe to the server who brings you a Pepsi when you asked for a Coke. Most know to warn you they don't have Coke products.

Well that's because most restaurants and hotels have exclusive contracts with either Coke or Pepsi. Its unusual to have both. Now Dr. Pepper is often distributed by Coke or Pepsi distributors so you might get DP with one or the other. In Atlanta, some restaurants go to the grocery store and have a stock of Cokes in the back even if they are Pepsi houses. Atlanta is the home of Coca-Cola. They don't want to offend a good number of their patrons who work there.
