    Re: If Duke can do it, why not ISU

    because Duke plays in the ACC


    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.

    You mean turn a terrible team into a team that can win 5-7 games some years but also really sucks some years? Yeah I think we did that already.

    Re: If Duke can do it, why not ISU

    Traditionally I don't think the ACC has been nearly as strong as the Big 12, but I get the point. Before this season I'd have said I'd think we could at least compete for it in three to four years, but obviously we took a big step back this season and lost a lot of that momentum.

    Re: If Duke can do it, why not ISU

    Duke... Baylor... K-State even... It can be done. QBs and COACHING... Even ISU was on the verge with Sage and then Seneca. Too bad OU figured us out and gave everyone a gameplan to beat us after that (we lacked on the coaching side a bit, still love ya DannyMac)

    Duke doesn't have to play against 4 teams located in the state of Texas.

    Impossible? No. But the road is much easier in the ACC, that much is undeniable, especially when your division doesnt include Florida State or Clemson, and your cross-division schedule only puts you against the 2 worst teams in the other division and avoids the 2 best teams in the ACC.

    We had similar help years ago when we had the easier division and every 2 years we got a rotation with the 3 easiest teams in the south..... and what do you know, those years we damn well should have been in the title game.

    Re: If Duke can do it, why not ISU

    It can be done. It would be a lot easier if there were still divisions in the Big 12. Playing Texas, the new Baylor, OSU, Oky, and a Bill S KState, makes it very hard for an ISU to get to a BCS game or top 2 in the conference. There are 5 teams in a 10 team conference that are not easy wins and for the near future that isn't going to change.
