Re: Tony Jones Write UP on Conference Expansion

This sounds like a stupid question, so I am hesitant to post. However, is it possible that he switched the two camps in his article?

Re: Tony Jones Write UP on Conference Expansion

I thought that Air Force was heavily in favor of expansion so they could have a larger non-conference schedule???

Re: 2011 OOC Schedule Released...

I'm predicting a 6-6 season with this schedule. I think we'll win 2, maybe 3 non-conference games and then win 3 or 4 conference games. Non-Conference: W - Weber, Wyo L - @ Auburn, CSU, @ BYU Conf: W - San Jose St., La Tech, @ Idaho, @ NMSU L - Nevada, @ Fresno, @ Hawaii I could see the Wyo and CSU...

Re: Just to let you know

+1, B-Ball in the MWC would be great. I think that it would be a whole new excitement. I would surely welcome having some tough competition for conference championship. The WAC this year is beyond horrible.

One more thing, I do not know what GFA's problem is, but I get as excited as a little girl when I see that WACFAN08 has posted something. I know that nothing is finalized until we hear it in a press conference from Stan Albretch's mouth, but it is nice to have something to go on.
