That's the rumor, but I doubt it. They make a lot more sense in the Big XII. But they're playing poorly enough in basketball to join the Pac-10 this year.


[Incredibly silly question here]? Lame.

Are you telling me we have to become the BigXIII? Lame.


CU is already in the Big XII.


Oh, lol. Can we delete these posts before anyone sees them and rejects me because I don't even know my own conference?

Eh, at least none of us go to CSU.

I hear their soil science program hopped into the Top 10 this year, though :D

CC / CU are the only schools in Colorado that were attractive to me. CC for the size and academics and CU for Boulder.

Same. I spent several weekends a month in Boulder, but I just loved the Block Plan at CC too much. Taking multiple classes at a time next year....downgrade.

Mine was a I-don't-want-to-have-to-visit-my-insanely-conservative-family-members-in-the-Springs decision. Haha. But the block system is pretty awesome and a major pull. More schools should pick it up.

is the springs generally a very conservative area, or is your family sort of an anomaly?

Colorado Springs is extremely conservative. And one of the biggest cities in Colorado (I think 2nd behind Denver but I could be wrong). Actually, most of Colorado is pretty moderate-conservative except for Boulder and Denver counties.

Good to hear that you're packing (digital) heat. By the way, thanks for bumping the thread. You know Cardinal-watchers get antsy on Fridays around 8:30 PST. Have a conscience, man!

This. CC is a little liberal enclave in the midst of evangelical and military conservatives.

Anyone think more calls are going to go out today?

Yes. I plan to get one in the middle of class. No basis for this, just trying to think positive.

I plan to get one in the middle of a romantic kiss and immediately answer, and when Dean Deal asks if I was busy, I plan to say "No, I'm not doing anything important" well within earshot of my girlfriend.

I got mine on a Friday at around 10 am EST. I remember, because not only was I terribly hungover, I said "fuck" when the voicemail started right in front of my 78 year old grandma.

From what people have posted, the calls go out in the a.m. EST, so I wouldn't expect anything today.

I got the call around 7 PM EST on a Friday. This was back in December, so I don't know if things have changed. HTH

Oh, I'm probably wrong then. Maybe it was on Tuesdays that calls go out in the a.m.? Nevermind.
