    Send Iowa State to the Big East!

    Big East (East)
    Pitt
    UConn
    Syracuse
    Rutgers
    WV
    South Florida

    Big East (West)
    Iowa State
    Louisville
    Cincinnati
    Kansas State
    Kansas
    TCU

    It would be the premiere basketball conference in the country and Iowa State would be very competitive with the entire conference in both football and basketball. It would retain its BCS AQ bid and the Big East has fertile recruiting grounds. Iowa state could recruit in Texas, Ohio, Florida, Penn, among others.

    Iowa state probably finished 11th in the big 12 from '96-'09 in football. The new conference (as referenced by that other thread) is not advantageous for our success.

    I doubt it will happen, but it would be a pretty good conference.

    Re: Send Iowa State to the Big East!

    I would be in favor of this to be honest. Get in now before some other schools realize how good of an idea it is. It makes the Big East solid and reputable in football and is already highly regarded in basketball. I will never feel confident that the Big 12 will stick around for good, would love to get out before we have to scramble for a new home in 10 years.

    We'd also lose a LOT of money. It's not a good idea.

    Did you see what the Big XII champ did to the Big East champ last night? Sure it's lesser competition, but its smaller football schools

    Early we would, but in the long run, I think we would make good money. It would have to prove it was a good football conference first, then get its TV contract done up right. The conference expands over some highly desired TV markets which would make it valuable to many broadcasting companies.

    But it wouldn't be a good football conference. It'd have still been behind the Big Ten and Pac-whatever and the SEC.

    Re: Send Iowa State to the Big East!

    I'm not convinced that the Big XII is going to be around for the long run. While it is, ISU needs to stay and reap the benefits ($).

    But this is something that JP & GG need to keep in the back of their minds as a contingency.


    Everyone is entitled to their opinion - no matter how wrong they may be.

    You also left out Missouri. I'd like them to stay with the Kansas, KSU, and ISU block.

    Not trying to be an *** at all, but does adding Kansas State, Kansas and ISU to the Big East really make the conference "solid and reputable" at football? Basketball looks extremely strong, but I don't know if those three schools do much, if any, for football.
