    Big 10 to go to 9 Conference Games in 2017

    Iowa, Michigan State, Nebraska, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio State to get five conference home games in 2017 and subsequent odd-numbered years. Michigan, Minnesota, Northwestern, Penn State, Purdue, Wisconsin, get five conference home games beginning in '18 and subsequent even years.

    So if Iowa gets 5 home games in odd years, and they play ISU in Ames in odd years, you would think the Cy-Hawk series just got some great momentum to stay for the long haul.

    Re: Big 10 to go to 9 Conference Games in 2017

    Given the difficulty of a 9 game Big XII schedule. I wouldn't shed a tear if they halted the series. If is more important to improve the odds of making a bowl game then playing Iowa. I'd miss the series, but I'd rather go to bowl games then play Iowa.

    $$$$$ will keep the series going. Why dump one of our biggest revenue games and replace it with a game that we have to pay someone else to play against us that will reduce the number of people in the stands. If we can't compete in our conference to get to bowl games I find them pointless especially when most teams lose money going to bowl games.

    As a side note, OWH Shattel is saying that Nebby wants to recruit Minnesoata and Iowa better since the states east of those states may not be as easy to recruit.

    Re: Big 10 to go to 9 Conference Games in 2017

    Who are you guys kidding? Iowa & Iowa State fans should want the Iowa/Iowa State game. This is the biggest game of the season we sell out the stadium, and have the greatest atmosphere of any tailgate all year long. For a lot of people it is the one time of year we get to see friends from the other side of the state and have a good time.

    It is absolutely crazy to think that this game would go away.

    If both schools wanted this series to drop, I don't think you would see a new trophy coming out for the game...


    Good times on Hawkeyenation.com after the 2010 Wisconsin Game!

    Re: Big 10 to go to 9 Conference Games in 2017

    The Iowa State / Iowa football game is the largest, most poignant event of the year.

    While I enjoy the feigned indifference that both sides play to down play the significance of their rival, this game is a huge deal financially and culturally to the state.

    This game is here in perpetuity.

    Looks like a move to beef up their tv inventory for their next contract. If we expand to 12 again it would be lucrative to do so as well.

    I would rather go to a bowl game too (Preferably Every Year.


    Than play Iowa aka eiu....I was a Clone fan for 15 years before we aka ISU ever played eiu....


    I can live without the eiu game if I can go bowling more often, I would rather enjoy myself at a Bowl Game than the Iowa game....

    True. But ISU won't be the one dumping the series.

    If kNU thinks they're going to stay relevant in the B1G by shoring up their Minnesota and Iowa pipelines, they're on crack. If they can't figure out how to recruit Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey, they're going to end up pining for the irrelevancy they complained about in the Big 12...

    I don't think the game is going anywhere for the foreseeable future, but the trophy isn't an indication of that. I have a feeling the new trophy is all about the new sponsor.


    TRUE AND VALIANT

    Which begs the question: "why don't we get BYU now?" The Big Televen played with 11 for years, why can't we get them on board now. IMO, they are part of that "getting back to 12" puzzle. Also, the Pac 12s commish has been spouting that they need 16....BYU would be considered in that expansion, wouldn't you think?

    BYU would be great for the league, plus gives us some leverage to add a prominant member to make it 12 again in the near future.

    Really good question. Why not do it?
