    I think Creighton would be fun too, although McDermott probably has no interest in that.
    I would enjoy a few more road games in neighboring states like this sine all of our natural geographic rivalries ended with conference realignment. Creighton would be an easy trip for Cyclone fans to make :)

    Re: Next Home-and-Homes?

    Would love to have pretty common rivalries with Minnesota and Missouri. Lots of home and homes that could be cool, but those two make great sense geographically.

    Re: Next Home-and-Homes?

    Realistically though, I'm not sure how many high-major teams would want to play us in Hilton. That's why it's really important to get in a good tournament every year.

    It's also why it wouldn't be a bad idea to play someone like those teams on a neutral floor that close to Ames, like the United Center or Sprint Center.

    St. Louis
    Illinois
    Northwestern
    Marquette
    Wisconsin
    Minnesota

    I think Clone fans would make a day out of a trip to any of these locations, if the game was on a weekend without ISU football.
    Ohio State is 10 hours from Ames. They are consistently a top 15 team with Thad as the coach. It would be a great matchup every year.

    I would also include Notre Dame and Purdue unless you're cutting out the whole state of Indiana completely.

    Re: Next Home-and-Homes?

    there's about 25 teams that'd make sense or be really fun for us to play home-home. the problem is we make sense for ZERO teams to schedule us. no recruiting, likely no tv, and we're not yet a nationally respectable program. getting there....

    Illinois, Purdue, Marquette, and Minnesota. I miss playing Mizzou, but that was a messy divorce.

    Notre Dame can't hang with us, but I'd like to see them try.

    Marquette would be a good one too. I'd love to beat them on the court after some of our head-to-head recruiting battles.

    Memphis home and home would be cool I think.
    Would also not mind seeing Marquette, Tennessee, Louisville, and Minnesota.
