    IA/ISU Football Game

    I didn't see this posted, if it has been go ahead an merge.

    Big Ten to boost number of conference football games - chicagotribune.com

    The B1G is for sure going to 9 conference games, and the rumor is that 10 conference games will be essentially guaranteed if expansion goes beyond 16.

    One of the WVU expansion "experts" tweeted this yesterday:

    MHver3 ‏ @ MHver3
    Getting reports from a source at Ohio State and a source at Penn St that BiG will meet in April to vote on 2-6 members.

    MHver3 ‏ @ MHver3
    UVA is a lock
    Not saying these guys are credible, but there has been speculation (straight from the mouths of B1G ADs/Presidents) that 20 could be the stopping point for the B1G.

    If the B1G goes to 20, I'd be willing to bet the ISU/IA game would end....which would be a real shame for the state.

    Re: IA/ISU Football Game

    Why would anyone want a 20 team league? You wouldn't even play half the league in football, and you'd have to extend the conference season in basketball just for one go around.

    20 teams is not a conference, it is two conferences posing as divisions of one conference. It wouldn't be much different than the relationship that is emerging between the SEC and Big 12 in football.

    I agree, it is dumb. The Big 10 is going to water down what it had going for it. The problem is everyone will think they have to keep up with the Joneses.

    I think you would see the Iowa legislature step in and require the game if it was in an real danger of getting dropped by one side or the other.

    Meh, whatever. Take your ball and enjoy your 20-team conference.

    20 teams??? why stop there? let's just not have conferences. Man makes the big 8 look genius!!


    If you take away first base, they'll just go find a new ballpark to play in.

    Not a chance of this happening if both schools amicably agree it should go away for awhile.

    I wouldn't mind seeing it go away. It's a game we are suppose to win and only hurts if we lose..... We might as well schedule Central Michigan.

    no way. i'm all for the game each year but the state government shouldn't step in. can you imagine the outcry if unemployment is 10%, tuition keeps going up, etc, and they are debating mandating a football game?

    On the other hand, the BOR could easily withhold money unless "competition between the two major universities continues at a level which brings the state together, yadda yadda"

    Listening to those WVU fools who claim to be experts is a huge waste of time. I wouldn't burn a brain cell discussing the stuff their 'sources' put out there.

    The name will be really silly at this point, let alone the commercial to help us remember the divisions.

    Game isn't going away. I'd place a large wager on that being the case. Even with 10 conference games it will still take place.

    I wouldn't be so sure. Iowa's inflated athletic budget relies heavily on 7 home games. With 10 conference games, you are sure to have 5 home and 5 away, and the remaining 2 games would have to be home games for Iowa. They would either have to cancel the series, or reduce their head coaches salary.

    Re: IA/ISU Football Game

    In a way, it doesn't matter. We can replace Iowa with Central Michigan, Toledo, Nebraska-Omaha, Idaho, or any small school and keep our strength of schedule unreasonably high.

    Who is going to be a decent power in the next 7 years? Let's schedule them now to give them time to grow.
