    What if ISU is not in a real major conference?

    How much will that affect ISU, State of Iowa and the city of Ames? I think the economic ramifications could be great to all parties.

    Re: What if ISU is not in a real major conference?

    We have the most loyal fans around. We are there through thick and thin, good and bad. We'll still donate and attend games because we love the Cyclones and love Iowa State. This is our turn to show the nation that we can compete and possibly work ourselves into a position to be attractive to expansion in the future. It's not all bad boys and girls. We have too many wowe is me folks for my liking.

    Not in a BCS conference would be devasting across the board and those that would deny it have their head up their ***.

    Re: What if ISU is not in a real major conference?

    It would be the end of Iowa State and Ames as we know it. We may as well start our downhill decent into a UNIT/Cedar Falls kind of university and community...

    If we aren't in a top conference, you'll see a lot of that drop off, big time..

    Yeah, like the average person buying a house or car... I'm sure you have never taken out a loan, right???
    The money we used to build these things was in a contract that is being broken. See the issue here?

    Well the stability of my income, is a tad bit more stable than the guaranteed income from a conference that was one fit from Texas or Ok from going off the deep end....but for real, ISU better end up in a BCS conference....

    And for the record I realize KSU or KU did the same thing....but still....Missouri took the right approach and waited for their capital campaign.

    You mean, you would NEVER lose your job?? You would NEVER get into a life altering accident that would require HUGE hopsital bills?

    And the second bolded part. GUARANTEED income.

    Which part don't you understand?

    I admit I used bad wording....but I assume the Big 12 TV contract is contingent on there still being a Big 12 conference?

    And I'll admit it was the first I knew about it, I heard about the video board and stuff, but if you want to explain to me how it worked...I'm all ears...my knowledge is from one paragraph in an ESPN article....and we all know how good of a source ESPN can be....

    Re: What if ISU is not in a real major conference?

    Ill give you my story on why i came to Iowa state. After finishing one year of Junior college, i had no idea where I wanted to go to school. I was set on Northern Iowa until I made a Trip to a Notre dame football game. I thought how awesome would it be to wake up and enjoy a major college football game. I had no intentions of going to Iowa state before this weekend. I knew I did not want to go to Iowa because of size and Iowa city is a hole. Anyways I took a trip to visit ames on a football weekend. and I think they were playing Baylor. After that day i was hooked, it would be the best of both worlds a great established University and Major College Athletics. If Iowa state was not in the Big12 I would not have came here.

    I understand that, I applied to one school (although I had grades and credentials to go to more) and that was Iowa....I was raised a Hawk, and if that wouldn't have worked out. I am not sure where I would have ended up. And it was driven because I grew up a Hawk fan, close to home, and great academics....but Iowa sports played a big role.
