    After the past 2 summers, all I can say is that I'm thankful this isn't a conference game.

    Nothing like agreeing to road games at MAC schools. Was hoping we could be done with this.

    Re: ISU signs home and home with Akron

    I couldn't care less about signing a home and home w/ Akron...I'll take a win on the road vs. Akron over a loss at home vs. Utah. Yes I know Utah was a top ten team coming to Ames that year but why not schedule WINS in the NC. A 9 game Big 12 schedule is tough enough.

    Re: ISU signs home and home with Akron

    I thought with BCS conference teams, they have the leverage to have 2 homes at the BCS school and only 1 home at the mid major

    Pay hundreds of thousands of dollars or play then on the road. Thats the decision.

    If we must play some of these teams on the road, then there is no reason to be playing less than a 2 for 1 in these kinds of deals. Playing these teams on the road just creates to big of a risk for a loss and loses us a home game pay out. 1 for 1's should be reserved for BCS opponents, service acadamies and maybe on occasion if we are trying to pick up games in Cali or Florida for recruiting purposes.

    Pay hundreds of thousands of dollars then, it is worth the investment. Plus, you will recoup most of that loss from the gate revenue of a second home game. Even more disappointing when this game replaces Navy on the schedule.

    Akron is 0-1 against the Big 12 after a 67-0 loss to Kansas State in 1995.

    Hopefully the game won't be on the LHN.
