    Re: BYU wants in the Big 12

    I don't think its about a tougher schedule even though that sentiment is probably true. I think it may boil down to the CCG's being a defacto "first round" of the BCS championship tourney, along...

    Re: BYU wants in the Big 12

    I'm thinking something like losing out on the CFB BCS playoff because a team winning its conference championship game is picked over the Big12 conference champion, although both teams may have one...

    Re: BYU wants in the Big 12

    BYU is not in the Pac12 due to the conference not wishing to kowtow to BYU's demands, like they didn't kowtow to UT's demands of an independent TV network.

    It's because the ten members of the...

    Re: So Who is on JP's list to replace CPR?

    Should something awful happen to CPR, and I hope nothing does, Mark Mangino should be at the top of JP's list of replacements.

    Re: Our D - better than advertised

    My response: We shall see. There are too many unknown factors pertaining to the whole team, much less the defense. Our attitude should be "wait and see."

    Re: BYU wants in the Big 12

    Expansion is not necessary, purely voluntary. I'm not advocating for conference expansion, just pointing out the ridiculousness of expectations for potential expansion candidate universities if...

    Re: The state of College Football

    I agree on most of the points made in that blog post. Even so, ISU is in a completely different position than the U of Michigan. JP needs to raise all the revenue he can to keep competitive with...

    Re: BYU wants in the Big 12

    I find it somewhat laughable to expect any expansion school to bring in $25M right away. Within the conference there are only two schools, two schools, that bring in that level of revenue for the...

    Re: BYU wants in the Big 12

    There are a number of geographical "fits." Unfortunately, most of them can't bring the finances, or have the potential to contribute in the way the conference would want. BYU is the best available...

    Re: JP's short list

    I'm sure Coach Otz is on the short list of a number of ADs around the country. Great recruiter and his in game skills I'm sure have progressed tremendously. He'll be a HC in one to three years at a...

    Re: What would it take: Fred Hoiberg

    That is exactly the reason why CFH leaves for the NBA. That probably won't come into play until ISU at least makes the Final Four IMO. Like all of us here in the forum, I'd love to see a national...

    Re: Redskins

    Values were way different 80 years ago. Racism was an established norm back then. That was then, this is now. Racism is no longer an accepted value. Sports franchises need to pay attention and...

    NFL: Re: Who's it going to be Viking fans?

    The problem with Cassel is he's not that mobile, but give him good protection and he's actually a decent QB. Ponder looks as if he doesn't learn very well from his mistakes, as he keeps repeating...

    Re: BYU wants in the Big 12

    I agree with you on the principles you're outlining, so there must be other issues at stake. If it was finances holding BYU back, then they would be in either the Pac12 or Big12 by now. Now that I...

    Re: never as good or as bad as it seems

    ISU has a pretty decent history of having front line players as good as most of the Big 8 and Big 12. What injuries do is expose the acute lack of depth on the bench. The best teams have subs who...
