    Iowa State to B1G 16?

    See post toward the end by topdawg705. Take with a grain of salt. I have no idea how reliable he is.

    I agree. I wouldn't believe this until we actually had a home game on the BTN.

    Well I'm convinced. It's this sort of rational and persuasive argument that always convinces me. I'm blinded by the brilliance.

    I'm guessing the guy has no clue, but it would be one of the best things to ever happen to ISU if its true. Can dream.

    why is everyone thinking the big east is the savior conference that picks up every conference's leftovers?

    It's their only chance at stabilizing, and it gives ISU a chance to live to fight for another day.

    Re: Iowa State to B1G 16?

    At this point in time I would still be happy with the Mountain West. I am just hoping that we have to settle for conferences like the Sun Belt, Conference USA or the MAC.

    Re: Iowa State to B1G 16?

    The evidence is apparently a forum post that gets it's source from the Rumor page. Anyway, according to the Rumors page,

    Don't think for a minute that the Pac-12's flirtation with Oklahoma and Texas is over. Especially with this week's news that Texas A&M will leave the Big 12. Dennis Dodd of CBS Sports believes the Pac-12 will look to form a super conference once the season is over.

    "It's really an either/or decision now. Big 12 stays together or Oklahoma/Texas go to the Pac-12. Don't expect there to be a third option -- Texas and Oklahoma splitting. Amazingly, Texas has lost a bit of traction having caused the departure of Nebraska and Texas A&M (at least in the eyes of Nebraska and Texas A&M)," Dodd writes. "There are fewer kids on the playground to bully. Leverage now shifts to Oklahoma which must decide between the Big 12 and the Pac-12. Bob Stoops has long been supportive of a move West. Either way, Texas is suddenly in the position of following rather than leading."

    The fact is, we're probably still several months from something concrete actually happening here. Still, the groundwork has been laid with A&M leaving -- without anywhere to go. This could begin the mass exodus.
    So, really, it is Dennis Dodd saying something. No real evidence for anything. At all.

    Re: Iowa State to B1G 16?

    I do think that if one league goes to 16, watch the others quickly fall in line. Notre Dame will jump too or possibly be left out of the national championship playoffs. Four six-team leagues, each playing a championship game to go to a four-team playoff.
