Trying to collect all my thoughts in a logical explanation about this whole conference realignment on a student perspective. Needless to say that it has been a bi-polar roller coaster on and off relationship with all the ideas of conference re-alignment. Believe me its hard on us and we have to study for mid terms, and Finals!
The Idea of ending up in LIMBO (in a situation with no AQ Bid) is haunting over us like the girl who died in the communications building o_0. Its a dark cloud that is making all of us hang our heads as we walk to class as we think thoughts "are we not loved? we just want to be loved!"
The Big East or as we call it "our Bid East" is a horrifying thought. We do not mind that our broncos have to travel if we do end up in the conference, because we know the money can help us do great things! I mean have you seen the COBE building being built (aka PB Mansion) and the Junior Senior housing being built. (How many more Fiesta Bowls gets a churro stand in the ILC?) The students not only want the money but we want a bigger stadium! We think the track is ugly and needs to go and moving to a big conference can change that! We have amazingly smart people as professors and students. an Artist can't build a masterpiece with out some paint brushes, more money will mean more research programs and more prestigious alumni our of BSU and that's what we need.
On the other side When it comes to watching the football games no one is more nervous than the students when it comes to pre-game thoughts. Drew and Kevan maybe nervous but we are fetal position scared of the vacuum type of scared, why? Because we are consistently being judged que in the hate for Mark May and Craig James. We never get love. But IF the "Bid East" holds up and keeps AQ then we will no longer care about what the ESPN nazis say about our Broncos. I think Bronco Nation will agree that if guys like Craig and Mark are not imposing their thoughts on the voters than we can all sleep happy. the BCS is a Bust for us and we are tired of the SOS argument, with this AQ bid we can ignore their comments and just focus on winning our conference.
I truly hope and pray that Dr Bob-o Kustra will play our cards very well. because we as students cant take all this gossip (that's why we left high school).
