    Official: University of Northern Iowa to Big 12 Thread

    Per Fox News:

    University of Northern Iowa to Announce Membership to Big 12

    UNI to change name to THE Northern Iowa University

    Troy Dannen, UNI Athletic Director, quotes:

    1) "We can cut into the Big 10 Market of Northeast and Eastern Iowa and SE Minnesota."

    2) "We are UNL, but UNI is very close"

    3) "If we are going to move to Div. I football, let's move to the toughest conference."

    4) "We promise not to leave the Big 12 for the Big 10, Pac 10, or SEC"

    5) "It makes geographic sense."

    Hard to argue with that logic.

    Coach Mark Farley is excited since he will not have to play ISU as the opener game.

    actually hard to find ANY logic in that screed


    As far as depth goes though, the combination of White, Woodbury, Olaseni, Basabe, and Uthoff is much better than Niang, Ejim, Edozie, Gibson. Not because of the top 2, but because of the next 2 or 3. -DeanVogs
