    Big 4 Classic nearing an end?

    Sounds like the Big 4 Classic may be nearing an end. My guess is they will finish out the 4-year deal and end the thing. I hate the set-up of the Big 4 classic, but I'm looking at it from a UNI fan's perspective. I have always enjoyed the in-state games and now that I work at ISU, I'd love to see UNI and ISU continue a series, but I'm not sure that's going to happen. Thoughts?

    I think it's horrible we don't play at UNI and Drake. Screw what the Hawks want to do, I think its great for the state.

    Wouldn't mind seeing home and home series starting up again. Especially now that order has been restored and UNI and Drake are back to the bottom of the barrel.

    I don't think it's going away so ISU can add both UNI and Drake back to the schedule every year. Not with SEC challenge, a tourney like CBE, Iowa and 18 conference games.

    I imagine we will say, "Sure we will play you. When would you like to come over?"

    I'd love to get them back in the campus arenas, but I don't see a straight home-and-home happening. Hopefully UNI and Drake would be open to a 2-for-1 series.

    Re: Big 4 Classic nearing an end?

    I really hope they get rid of the Big 4 Classic and ISU goes back to playing UNI and Drake each year. For as much history is between the state schools, it is a shame they don't play every year anymore.

    ISU, wasn't too long ago was not going to the NCAAs and was getting beat by UNI and Drake. Let's not act all high and mighty like Iowa is trying to. Let's go to UNI and Drake.

    Re: Big 4 Classic nearing an end?

    Personally, I am embarrassed as an ISU fan that we cancelled both games.

    - UNI is part of the same educational system as ISU, we should be supporting them however we can within reason
    - UNI game and Drake game are far more interesting than playing NCCUSTA&M State.

    Re: Big 4 Classic nearing an end?

    Yeah Id be down for going back to what it was, but I see no way ISU does anything less then a 2 for 1.

    Year 1: Play UNI and Drake at Hilton
    Year 2: Play at UNI, Drake in Hilton
    Year 3: Play at Drake, UNI in Hilton

    Repeat.

    I'm not saying 1 for 1. Maybe 2 for 1 is the most logical? It's silly there is a division 1 basketball team 30 miles away and ISU isn't playing them every year.

    ISU should play UNI and Drake every year, games should always be played in Hilton.

    Bring back the old system, end this train wreck.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Why? If ISU is going on the road I would rather do what we have been... playing at a major conference team.
