    What other conferance could Iowa State compete?

    All this talk of the Big 12 the past week has got me thinking what other conference could the cyclones compete in?

    I'm not saying that I want to move to a different conference because at the end of the day I do like being in the Big 12. I'm to hear just curious to here everyone's thoughts

    I was thinking ether the ACC or the PAC 12

    I really think our program is at a point where we could fairly consistently make a bowl game in every conference that isn't the SEC. Unfortunately, I don't think any of the AQ conferences want us.

    We would make a bowl game every year playing in the SEC East. Four non-conference cupcakes plus Kentucky, Tennessee, Vanderbilt, and Missouri. There's two wins between those four every year.

    If we can't compete in the B12 this year, we aren't competing in either of those this year. I think the Pac 12 could give the SEC a run for their money this year.


    It's all snark from here on out

    For like the millionth time, the SEC has four OOC games that are always scheduled against cupcakes, and ussually 5-6 of the in conference games are against teams that are really bad. Then of the 3 remaining games 1 or 2 is against a decent team and 1 or two is against an elite team.

    Look at Missouri's schedule this season and tell me there wouldn't be six wins for this team.

    I wasn't being serious. I personally am not a fan of this what would we do in other conferences talk since it isn't going to happen.

    I put that because I expected a backlash of "If we can't beat UNI we'll get destroyed in the SEC." I guess I got the exact opposite.
