    Geoffroy says ISU trying to position itself for Big 12 changes

    Iowa State University President Gregory Geoffroy declined Tuesday to talk about how possible Big 12 Conference changes might shake out for ISU, beyond saying ISU officials are working in the best interests of the school.
    “Athletic Director Jamie Pollard and I are working diligently to make sure Iowa State is positioned as well as possible when the dust settles,” Geoffroy said during a break in the state Board of Regents meeting today in West Des Moines.
    Geoffroy said he was not going to say anything beyond that statement about possible scenarios for ISU if the Big 12 Conference realigns or members leave.

    "as well as possible when the dust settles"
    Is that half full or half empty?

    Big Ten Conference is not talking about possible new members or entertaining expansion at this time
    Then how about tomorrow? There is a blitzkrieg war going on out there.

    pretty ambiguous statement. I would say it is still unsure, but staying together is not out of the question.

    A 'lightning war' war?!

    Anyway, as a Big Ten fan, I'm not sure how I feel about the conference seemingly staying out of this round of expansions, especially after we so carefully kicked off the previous one...

    The SEC was 'happy with where they were', until 2 weeks later when they werent. The PAC and its commish had no plans to talk expansion.... until they did. etc, etc.

    Without even discussing whether we'll end up there or not, public statements like this mean nothing.

    This is much more of an attrition war than a blitzkrieg. The blitz would be noisy, violent, and finished. This is slow, agonizing and neverending.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Just like the last blitzkreig war, there is going to be a lot of casualties in this war..


    Mainly the left out schools and the leftover schools who have to join other left out and leftover schools to form a new conference...

    For good or bad its gonna change the football landscape for a long time and not for the good either...

    Re: Geoffroy says ISU trying to position itself for Big 12 changes

    Regents President Craig Lang referred comment about the Big 12 Conference issues to Geoffroy.
    ...after being asked, "Mr. Lang, can you comment on the potential impact to Iowa State University and the state in general that a potential Big 12 breakup could have, and if the Regents are discussing any potential ways to try and influence the results with the best interests of ISU in mind?"

    Lang replied, "Ahh. Big 12 breakup? I thought it already broke up. Impacts? Yo Greg, this seems like an Iowa State question. All yours, short timer."

    (just my idea of how it went, of course)
