    We will be a basketball school until we can break through towards consistent winning seasons, better bowl games, and being ranked occasionally.

    Pretty obvious ISU and KU are basketball, other than that, I think they are all football.

    KU is the only BBall school. All the rest (including ISU) are FB schools. Some of those schools have great support for BBall (like ISU).

    Re: is iowa state a football or basketball school?

    All time? Kstate has to be a bball school by default then, right? So do we.

    I would agree with that list other than that though. OSU is 50/50.

    Re: is iowa state a football or basketball school?

    No reason we can't be both, but we are going to have a higher profile in basketball (and that is much easier to do).

    ISU is a bball school historically. We have had way more success in bball than football and the bball crowds have always been much better than football except for the very recent seasons with football stepping it up.

    No question historically we are a bball school. At this current moment? It's a tougher argument but I would still say bball because Hilton is a top atmosphere in the nation and we are having success on a national level in the NCAA tourney, whereas football has a great atmosphere and made a bowl game 3/4 years, but on a national level we haven't been super relevant minus upsets.

    Re: is iowa state a football or basketball school?

    Are we talking about w/l record alone or attendence figures? Does BBall draw 300,000+ for a season? Both sports are pretty big right now at ISU. Why do we have to choose? Can't we just enjoy the ride?

    ISU is a basketball school that really, really, really likes football. We just haven't been that good at it.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    That's a good way to put it, for a basketball school we support the hell out of our football team, we just haven't had very much success overall.
