    "Insiders" claim expansion this weekend

    Our "insiders" are about to put their sources to the test. Making some big claims on the WV board.

    First one was posted by the dude of WV who broke started the rumors back in January

    Scout.com: A guy I trust...

    Second one is some "insider" running a Baylor site

    Scout.com: BU 247 Mod quoting his source- "Big 12 expansion is

    Do not want Notre Dame as a ******* half member! Unless they agree to become a full one after their TV contracts are up.

    WVU sure seems to be the leader for the push of Big 12 expansion. Not that I can blame them though...

    Does this help ISU?

    Probably brings back dev play. Does it hurt ISU to not play teams like TX and OU every year?

    Probably increases our chances at playing for a confrence championship.

    Read through that scout forum post. It is only at 2 pages, but a lot of stuff in it.

    I sound pretty confident when I am bluffing in poker too but that doesn't mean there is anything in my hand.

    Re: "Insiders" claim expansion this weekend

    This idea has been discussed on Cyfan and was ridiculed repeatedly. ND to the big 12 could fit nicely into a 12 or 12.5 team scenario but is it a good fit for ND? Would rather have them as a full member with 12 but either way good for the conference and ISU IMO. We'll see...

    It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.

    Remember, you're unique. Just like everyone else.

    Out of the last 10 years assuming we played ND each year, how many of those games would we have won? I dont follow ND at all.

    I'd say we'd have gone 3-7. Most years they'd beat us on talent alone.

    Re: "Insiders" claim expansion this weekend

    I don't want ND as a partial, even with an understanding that they'd be full fledged after their TV deal is up. All they'd do is leach off us in the meantime, then open it up to the highest bidder when the contract is up. Their partial membership sure didn't seem to do the Big East any favors. I like the idea of the dollars they could bring, but I'm not sure it's worth the b.s. it'll take to get our share.

    This is true. For a program that gets as many highly ranked recruits as they do their results for about the past 10 years have been pretty mediocre.
