    Big Monday...sigh.

    Iowa State is shut out of Big Monday games yet again. Sigh. A good season next year will surely get the Cyclones a few games for 2012-13.

    Re: Big Monday...sigh.

    big monday used to be a much bigger deal. espn now has college hoops on every night, and the b12 is on three nights a week. plus with espn 2, espnU, espn3, full court etc....there's just a lot of options out there.

    hard to get a big monday slot when you finish last.

    God I hope they shove the ball down all these teams throat this season. I can't wait to see how ISU matches up this season!

    The Big East game never gets over until 8:30 anyway. I'd rather see all of an ISU game on a different night than 70 percent of one on Monday.

    I'm pretty sure that ESPN will pick up a conf game or two if we are 3/4 as competitive as we think we will be.

    All basketball selections are made before the season. It isn't like football, where games are picked 6-12 days prior.

    Re: Big Monday...sigh.

    there was a good article last year about how big monday games are chosen. basically espn picks the match-ups, (kansas and texas as much as possible) but the b12 then tries to get more teams broadcast.

    Re: Big Monday...sigh.

    this hurts. Big Monday is good for national exposure, and we will be getting none and are a non factor for this.

    You write real good and should keep posting so that we could hear your thoughts because they are smart dreams and things.


    I don't bring my own opinions, just attack others.

    They should just call em "Kansas Monday Games". Half of big Monday games are KU vs. Someone else. Boo.

    They'll still have to show the B12 standings during the games and we'll be on top. :)
