Shocker: San Diego State is aggressively lobbying the Big XII for consideration. In other news, Justin Bieber thinks he’d be a “great fit” for a supporting role in the next Scorsese film.
Here’s how I bet that call to Big XII commissioner Chuck Neinas went:
Jim Sterk: Hi Chuck, Jim Sterk.
Chuck Neinas: Oh … hi.
Sterk: At San Diego State?
Neinas: Of course! I knew that. What can I do for you, John?
Sterk: Say, sorry about the way we got rid of your boy
s Chuck andToby. That was under a previous regime, you know. Water under the bridge, right?
Neinas: No biggie. The checks cleared, at least.
Sterk: Say, you know I just had this thought. You know who would be a great add for your conference?
Neinas: Uh … Louisville?
Sterk: No. Well, maybe. But also us! Our football team isn’t dogshit anymore. And we’ve got a trolley. And we stole this chant from Utah State. Shit is blowin’ up here, Chuck.
(Sound of crumpling paper)
Neinas: What’s that? Jim? Jim, I’m driving through a tunnel. I’ll have to call you back.
Sterk: But isn’t this your office li …
Sterk: He’ll call back.
But credit Sterk for being proactive. And credit him more for shit talking the Zoobs in the process.
Sterk said he wanted to make sure the Big 12 was aware that San Diego is “as close to Austin (Texas) as Provo, Utah (home of BYU) and a heck of a lot easier to get to.
