MSU Official @DickiV Campaign Launched

The Twitter campaign has officially been launched by the University to bring Dicki V back to Murray for the Belmont game. I lack the knowledge to attach the Tweets, hopefully someone else can. There are Tweets from Dr. Jackson @PresMurrayState, the University, and the Athletic Department @MSURacers.

I hope it succeeds!

Not trying to downplay the Dickie V campaign but it's been done. Let's go for something new and bigger like #BringProhmback2theBank.

Imagine a Big XII team in the Bank. I'd like that more and after a win it would have more of an impact than DV coming to town.

Who is doing the game then for ESPNU? Two high school students from Calloway's A/V department? We get no respect on these home TV games. Half the time they don't even know how to pronounce our players names.

Don’t even send a broadcast team. Just use Neal and Kenny.

I concur Victor as long as they don’t steal them away from us

Love when the Board can produce some real Gems like this. :clap: :clap: :clap:

Especially when we all know opening that 3rd concession stand is what we want along with a big Racer win.

Not disappointed that Vitale is not coming. The only plus of him being here is the hoopla and uptick in ESPN coverage that surrounds his personality. I’d prefer Jay Bilas if they would send one of their top tier announcer teams. Plus we must remember the last time Vitale was here because the game was ESPN’s baby (Bracketbuster). And though the Belmont game is the premier OVC regular season matchup, it’s still just a regular season game (to ESPN). And, the game is on ESPNU. Nevertheless, the game is huge for us in many aspects, and it will be a great night in the CFSB Center. Go Racers!

If we go by years past we will hopefully get Fran Franchilla (spelling may be off) who is actually fairly knowledgeable about the OVC.

Oh the 3rd concession stand will not open until the under 8 media time out and only sell cups of ice. Good thing I smuggled out a 2 liter from Martin's gym. :thumbup:

As I recall, Jay Bilas (Mr. ACC) stated that there was no way the Racers should get in the NCAA tournament the year they went undefeated in conference because they played a really bad game against Valpo. I'm sure he would be okie-dokie with installing 9 ACC teams every year.

Yep. Bilas is to the ACC as Bill Walton is to the "Conference of Champions" which is a fun drinking game if you drink every time he says that phrase. At the moment the PAC only has 2 projected seeds. If that stays like it is, it will be the only possible chance of any mid major conference getting a second bid this year. But that also opens up seeds for more SEC or ACC teams to miraculously get in with a below .500 conference record. Sadly, the truth is our only chance ever to get in is to win in Evansville.
