    You don't think playing in a highly competitive league means anything to recruits?

    We don't have to be in an easier league for the first two things you listed to occur.

    Re: Harris Leaving WVU

    Playing in a weak league doesn't help ISU get into the tournament/improve seeding.

    Does a Big 12 title mean nothing to you people? Damn.

    Re: Harris Leaving WVU

    Calm down guys, one guy from one team is not going to make or break the strength of the conference. WVU had a decent year and beat some good teams, but they weren't world beaters by any means and didn't make the tourney.

    Yes it helps. But we already have tough teams in the Big 12, we don't need TCU, TT and WV to be good. It's nice to have some teams we can count on for guaranteed wins.

    Re: Harris Leaving WVU

    This league has three potential top 15 teams in Texas, Kansas, and yours truly, Iowa State. Oklahoma State and Baylor won't suck, Tech is finally going to be somewhat relevant. The only teams that will suck in the league next year are WVU, KSU, and TCU. And the former two won't suck THAT much.

    He is from Indianapolis and wants to play closer to home i.e. Indiana, Butler, etc.

    KSU is not going to suck. They only lose Spradling and Southwell. Marcus Foster is a beast. TCU is going to be a lot better. Oklahoma State is going to be significantly worse.

    Winning a Big12 title has 0% to do with how good WVU is and 100% to do with how good Kansas is.

    That doesn't mean they aren't going to suck. I'm guessing 2-3 Big XII wins, but they're still going to suck.
