I've read both boards. A lot of crazy talk going on.

I feel like these polls have made some people's year over on the old shockernet. It's very comical right now.

I feel the same about the Redbird board. Man, they can't fathom the believe that Ben Jacobsen doesn't think Illinois State is a Top 25 team. Very, very petty.

Those are mostly (all?) jokes, Championz/specialsauce/TheObserver/etc.). Have a look!

Congratulations to both teams. This gives me some hope that we can squeak 2 teams in this year after all.

The ncaa's are always so much more fun with a couple of valley teams to watch. I think both teams are capable of making a run there.

Those are jokes..... Wow man. Wow.

If you want to compare the hate on the boards and the campuses, take a look at the thread you guys started and the one we did regarding the polls. You'll see where the hate lies.

And the next time you want to call me out, come do it here, or in person. Running to your board and talking smack about me since you've had your butt handed to you on this one the past few conversations is weak SAUCE.

See there you go. Flying off the handle.

I post straight forward remarks. You threaten with condescending garbage when you get into ultra-defensive mode. So retire12. So predictable. You just can't help it. It's like a ticking time bomb.

So anything said on the Redbird board is a joke, while everything said on the Shocker board is certifiably evil. Got it. Typical.

You talk about me all of the time here. You can't stop talking about me and what I say at my board. What's the matter? Don't like it when it happens to you? I made an assumption. I was wrong. I thought for sure you would've been the one to go on an anti-WSU tirade because you do it all of the time. So please spare me with the "woe is me" anthem.

Butt handed to me? lol, child please.

Prediction: This thread will get derailed (again) with redbirdgrad getting the last possible word in, in the most condescending, hypocritical way possible. Everything will now be about me, the WSU board, a personal attack lobbed somewhere in the middle, and then a threat to top it off.

He cannot help it. Watch.

Here. You post straight forward remarks here. You're a piece of trash on your board who recently called me out. You were afraid to do it here. Man up.

The quote you referenced on our board... was... wait for it... a joke.

Not everything on your board is evil.. I've never said that at all. But you and others started running your mouth as soon as the rankings came out. At this point it's disgusting. I frequent your board because there is usually very good discussion over there. I don't mind the hate, you get that on every board, but then you decided to call me out without... wait for it again... checking out your facts first. I was very complementary of you guys getting votes and I think you've earned them. Your first instinct was to trash me and anyone else you could think of. There's something SERIOUSLY wrong with you.

TheObserver wrote:You talk about me all of the time here.

Here. We discuss things here. There's a difference.

Please show me an anti-WSU tirade.

Consistently. Consistently handed to you.

Called it.

And now I'll bow out to show I don't need the last word in yet another redbirdgrad-instigated mess.

For what it is worth, I would rank Wichita ahead of the Redbirds right now. Plain and simple, they are playing better at this point of time. Since their showdown, Wichita had one bad half against Bradley and one bad half against Evansville. ISUr has struggled since Halftime in the game right after the Shox (Bradley game).

You aren't a better poster. Not by a long shot.

Get over your ISU hate and have a beer with Redbirdgrad at Arch. I'm sure he would be very cordial.
