    If the Big XII folds where does ISU land?

    I think the Big East would be the best landing spot. Hopefully we can stay in a unified Big XII.

    IF this were to happen...you don't even have the "BEST" one up there...which would of course be the Big 10.

    Go back and read posts on this subject from a year ago (if you feel the need). Total waste of time to bring this back up. IMO

    1. The Big 12 won't fold anytime in the near future
    2. We were headed to the Big East before and we will head there if it ever happens

    Re: If the Big XII folds where does ISU land?

    I voted Big East. Even so I have a different take on this topic. I think the "Forgotten Five" should stay together and use the penalty money to form the Big 16. ISU; KU; KSU; MU; BU; BYU; TCU; Pitt; maybe Ark.; if they're listening, ND; AFA; Boise St; Houston; USF; Cinci; and Louisville could form an excellent conference. I picked 16 teams as the only scenario that puts ISU in limbo is the formation of the dreaded super conferences.


    rocks!

    lol. I was letting french fries and gravy overwhelm my thinking. You are correct. "Love it or leave it! USA!"

    Re: If the Big XII folds where does ISU land?

    I said the Mountain West, but I would love to see ISU end up in a better situation than that (In fact, I'd love it if they were in the Big Ten). Quite a few good programs could be on the outside looking in if the dominoes started falling, and could make a pretty solid conference themselves.
