    Would you return college athletics to the state they were in during yr 2000?

    This is stemming from the Bill article also posted today. Would you return college athletics to as they were during the year 2000? Much has happen in the years since Y2K has it made the athletic environment for collegiate sports better or worse in your eyes?

    Would this mean Seneca is our eternal QB? And Cael will win the national championship every season while Eustachy takes us deep into March Madness?


    Hell yes.

    Hell yes. I would love to have the Big 12 again like it was in 2000.

    Also, our women's Bball team was able to dominate with their finesse style. How I long for the days when basketball wasn't basketbrawl.


    Utah Utes, Illinois Illini. The University of Pennsylvania thought about following this pattern by calling themselves the Pennsylvania Pencils. However, they were afraid their students would start chanting "We're No. 2"

    I put no, not because I don't wish the conferences would go back (I wish they would). But because that would mean we wouldn't have CPR, CFH, or Jamie Pollard, and I feel really good about the direction of ISU athletics

    Nope. I'm convinced that the next decade that follows will be much better than the decade that followed that.

    What is so unique about the year 2000? Was college athletics not being driven by money then? It's been driven by money my whole lifetime. I only vote yes because I hate the whole conference realignment BS which is really just a manifestation of what drives college sports.

    Agreed, it's always been driven by money. Realignment was even happening back then as well. That was the time frame that the Mountain West split from the WAC and discussions were started then for the first round of Big East to ACC teams.

    The Big 12 was born out of realignment - it's just that since we were one of the winners rather than one of the losers it didn't necessarily seem like a bad thing.


    "There are five real good recruits in the state. We got three of them. One couldn’t get into school, and the other went to (the University of) Iowa...which is about the same thing." - Coach Johnny Orr

    I believe that college sports existed in every state already in 2000.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    I think the OP is concerned with Alaska, but not sure.


    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

    Which brings up the question, have any schools moved states since 2000? How long would it take them to pack up the buildings and move them?
