    What conference do you want to see ISU play in next year?

    Not, what you think will happen, or what you have heard might happen, what would you LIKE to see happen for ISU during the conference craziness?

    Re: What conference do you want to see ISU play in next year?

    Big 10

    Realistically though - Big East


    I know what people are going to say, we will get better talent and more money if the Big 12 would stay together but I am sick and tired of schools like UT and OK running the conference and with that, destroying the conference. I would be more happy with stability and less money than always having to bend over for the south schools and kissing their behinds to make them happy.

    I say the MAC. It's a conference we could definitely compete in in football and basketball. Plus we'd still get good non-con games and more money for them. I think it's a win-win.

    living in MN, I would love to be in the big 10 just because I could see many more games on TV.

    Anyway, I chose Big 16 because nobody said we had to be realistic...

    Thank goodness it is not the MVC. That UNI looked tough.

    This is your first post here? clearly an anti-clone fan. ISU in the MAC reduces our ability to recruit, which then reduces our ability to compete, which then puts us as an even crappier team. Vicious black hole.

    Either the Big 12 (if it can be ACTUALLY fixed), or the Big Ten.

    Plus, his name is "realist"? The only people who talk the way he is are the Hawk trolls that HOPE for the MAC. So, I guess from his point of view, he IS a realist

    I'm not an anti clone fan. I think that the MAC would give more opportunities than anywhere else. Explain to me why it wouldn't. And don't say recruiting because ISU would get the same athletes they do now. Plus they would be winning, which every kid wants to do. What would the Big East do? You're not going to outrecruit the other Big East teams and you lose your Midwest roots.

    The question wasn't where you THINK ISU will end up. It's where do you WANT them to end up.

    If you think that the MAC offers more opportunities than the Big Ten, then you're not such a realist after all. ISU could really use that kind of money to upgrade their facilities (bowl in the endzone at JTS, for starters).
