    What would you do?

    If ISU was in the same situation as MU what would you want? The SEC is a cesspool of NCAA violators, and I'm guessing that isn't changing anytime soon. There may be more stability and more money, but at what cost?

    I'm guessing our fans would be doing the same thing Missouri fans are doing, but I'm pretty sure the grass isn't greener on that side of the fence.

    What would you do if Pat Sajaks were flying out of your ***?


    I was a victim of a series of accidents, as are we all.

    Re: What would you do?

    No. I relish the opportunity to travel to the game in Columbia as well as games in Lawrence and Manhattan. I love the Big 12 Tournament in KC. Road trips would die.

    Missouri will become the Baylor and Colorado (when they were in the Big 12) of the SEC as far as fan travel. They are going to get passed over in every bowl because the SEC teams...all of them...fill stadiums.

    I don't do signatures. Blondes, brunettes, and red heads are a different story.

    And now LSU, Florida, etc can invade the Missouri recruiting landscape as well. Pinkel has done a good job at closing the doors to outsiders. This would open up an entire conference to invade KC and St. Louis athletes.

    Re: What would you do?

    Big 10 - YES, SEC - NO - I want ISU to be relevant. If we were in SEC, we would be like Vandy and Kentucky for football. Maybe worse because who would want to come to Ames to play in the SEC?

    I think Mizzou is making a HUGE mistake.

    I agree. I'm surprised that Missouri's fans are so pumped about joining the SEC. How bad is this conference when people embrace the opportunity to compete against that cesspool of cheaters?

    As James Carville said in the debate portion of Old School vs Frank the Tank, "We have no response, that was perfect." Well said.

    Re: What would you do?

    I see ISU joining the SEC as being on par with joining the MWC.

    Our basketball would be fine, but our football program would die.

    We'd be back to the 90's from a football standpoint. Program suicide.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Re: What would you do?

    as someone else said: Big 10 or staying Big 12 - Yes, anywhere else - No. I like playing the "local" teams. What used to be Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska....or now Nebraska, Minnesota, Iowa, Illinois...teams I understand and fan bases that I have actual interaction with.

    I'll say it again... we do not have the resources to cheat in the SEC.

    What would you do, if you were asked to give up your dreams for freedom?

    Ha.

    You would have to pay your "buck-o-five" for sure.
