    REPORT: Bowlsby new Big 12 commish

    I know that there was a thread on this earlier but now that it's starting to look more like news instead of speculation, I thought I'd fire up a new one.

    Bob Bowlsby to lead the Big 12 - KansasCity.com

    Ya, I'm ******! Now he's going to kick us out of the Big XII and we're going to be stuck in the MAC. Ugh.

    Can somebody convince me that I shouldn't be completely underwhelmed by this?

    @DanBeebe has been tweeting some funny stuff regarding this development (Twitter won't work here at the office, so no link).

    Here's a tweet directly from Pollard a couple hours ago: @IASTATEAD: At Big 12 meetings in Phoenix. *Best I have felt about the Big 12 in my seven years. *Great things on the horizon for the Cyclones and Big12

    Re: REPORT: Bowlsby new Big 12 commish

    Despite my distaste for his Hokeye ties Bolwsby has been a very high profiule figure in college atheltics. He has been successful at both Stanford and IA city.

    For those that bag on him for hiring Alford I'll remind you that Pollard is a great AD despite hiring Cale and Chizzle.

    And he has no Big XII ties. I did not want to see somebody from another Big XII school.

    Re: REPORT: Bowlsby new Big 12 commish

    On the surface you gotta hate a UofI AD leading our conference. But if you look at it, this guy is an Iowa guy, state of Iowa first. He has done really good things in his career. And you know he's not afraid to push the limits. If you want a Big XII guy that is conservative I hear Beebe is still looking.

    Time will tell, but I think this will be good for ISU.

    I really don't think it's a bad choice either. He is kind of a lump as a personality but I think he is a pretty good administrator.

    As for any bias against ISU, please. The man strikes me as being very professional.

    I'm slightly concerned also, Surely he has no ill feelings towards the Cyclones right????
