    Geography of Realignment Chaos Link

    A great link related to the geography of realignment! We're not in the Top 50, but we deserve a seat at the table if decisions are made according to TV's.

    By the way, it states that our fan base ranks #52 nationally. Only ahead of KSU and Baylor in the Big 12.

    That is interesting. I've been wanting to see something like this for awhile but don't have the time and resources to do it myself.

    Re: Geography of Realignment Chaos Link

    That's about what I expected, but I'm really surprised that ISU is ahead of KSU. KSU has had much more football success than ISU in the last 20 years. Regardless, more facts proving that ISU definitely deserves a spot in an AQ conference.

    Man, people on the west coast do not give a **** about college sports. Just too many other diversions and options vying for attention.

    Wow...that's crazy when you stop and think about it. However, we are not even thought of when it comes to having a large fanbase because we are in Iowa and nobody thinks we can have a very large fanbase since UofI is also in Iowa

    Too bad most of them are already in stable conferences. So one way to look at it is 10 teams below us have already secured their spot in the top 64 if it comes down to super conferences.

    Someone please forward this to Pollard. I assume he already has some statistics available to him, but he needs to see this.

    I don't think it is about hating on us. It might just come down to lack of room for us. Remember for everyone already sitting at the table (even if below us) that is one less spot for us at the table.

    Re: Geography of Realignment Chaos Link

    I wonder how that takes into account fans that are fans of multiple teams... I know alot of UCF fans also tend to be UF fans (but didn't get in) and alot of USF fans tend to be FSU fans (but didn't get in)

    I get that if 64 teams in major conferences isn't the number. If it is 64, how can ISU not be included?
