    ISU ESPN Academic vote

    Rank 'Em: Smartest football schools? - SportsNation - ESPN

    Everybody vote for ISU as first and move us up in these rankings. We all know we are a better university than many of those places.

    Re: ISU ESPN Academic vote

    Duke, WF & UNC are not football schools. At least KU has had some success and I am shocked ISU is in the poll - how did that happen? Opps accually read the top. The ACC schools are more highly ranked than the Big 12 and adding WVA did not help (ranked 164) but I must admit it is funny FSU is making a deal about this because FSU is the lowest academically ranked school in the ACC.

    Re:ISU ESPN Academic vote

    FSU is not making a big deal about academics actually it's quite the opposite.... One on their board of trustee members is on the record of saying that conferences are not academically linked and that it will play no role in their decision... Which he stated as what is best for FSU is what will happen!

    I was referring to the professors at the university - I know the BOT chairman said it would not impact the decision.

    Re: ISU ESPN Academic vote

    ACC people clearly have no idea what they are talking about with ISU's ranking what it is compared to the other non-AAU Big 12 schools.

    Based on these fan opinions, seems like Fla. St. and Clemson belong in the Big XII...

    Call Bowlsby. Tell them to stop negotiations. If clonecones says no, I say no.

















    Is really necessary?

    Re: ISU ESPN Academic vote

    This is dumb. Any poll in which TTU, WVU, OU, OSU or FSU could possibly jump ISU academically make zero sense. We get it...ACC academics > Big XII academics.

    Re: ISU ESPN Academic vote

    Most effective way to do this... put ISU at the top and throw Duke, UNC, BC, and Wake Forrest at the bottom while leaving the rest of the poll blank. It counts, gets ISU moved up and isn't giving points to a school we can actually beat in this poll. ISU is #20 now, lets make it #5 by the end of the day :)
