    Re: Next Home-and-Homes?

    Illinois, Mizzou, Minnesota, and Creighton make the most sense geographically. All within driving distance for our fans, usually competitive teams, and has regional appeal. If we wanted another cupcake could always try to add Nebraska back to the mix too

    But personally I would like to see:

    Duke
    UNC
    Already have done this one. Would like to see it again, but somehow I think they are not going to be willing to come to Ames again. Have a hard time, (once teams see the magic) getting them to willingly come back.

    Add Michigan to the list with OSU. I imagine the way they dropped App state like a hot potato, Michigan won't be looking our way again any time soon. They will fear The magic and they will be taking their ball and going home. I'm glad that we got them in for Johnny though.

    Unfortunately they didn't even come to Ames with the last home and "home." It was in Des Moines.

    Re: Next Home-and-Homes?

    Michigan State so we can scout some of our future transfers #lamejoke

    I would like to see Syracuse, Uconn, or Georgetown.

    No to Creighton, I never want to see that crap coach's face ever again.

We got strong fan turnouts in late '09-10 when ISU played a couple games here, and I guarantee we'd do even better now with the direction the program is heading. What do you say, JP? Let's make it happen!
    It seems like a game in chicago against a big 10 team, especially an OSU\Indiana\Illinois would be a road game without getting the credit for it being a road game.

    Count me as another that would be all for getting series started with Minnesota, Marquette, and Illinois or Northwestern.

    Re: Next Home-and-Homes?

    Strange suggestion...but DePaul! That school has run its program into the ground but they are in the Big East and it would give us some exposure to Chicago. They are opening a new arena near Soldier Field...heck, play DePaul every year! If it were a weekend game and DePaul's "fans" are still apathetic we could spend a weekend in Chicago and it put enough ISU fans in that new place that it might sound like Hilton!

    Re: Next Home-and-Homes?

    When you market ISU basketball, a big part of it is marketing Hilton and our fans. You don't get much mileage out of that playing a game in Chicago on TV.

    I was thinking of playing there for exposure to Chicago kids themselves and it would be a matchup of two big conferences. I attended a KU-DePaul game there a few years back. Self wanted a Chicago game for two of the kids on his team (can't remember who...but one was a star) who played HS ball in Chicago. Bad thing for KU that day is that they blew a 16 point halftime lead and lost. Great game but All-State Arena sounded like it was Lawrence, KS...but it was awfully quiet at the end!

    Side note: is there a program in the nation that has destroyed itself as much as DePaul? Ouch...embarrassing...
