    is it time for us to leave the Big 12?

    let's be honest. We are never going to compete in this league, nor would we be a player in the Big 10. I think the MAC is made for us.

    Re: is it time for us to leave the Big 12?

    Because of this one game? You apparently are one of the ISU fans that makes this game your Superbowl...which explains why you're taking it so hard.

    It isn't time for ISU to leave the Big 12...but it is time for you to leave the fanbase.

    If I were a mod I'd just kill this right now.

    Maybe if I personally attack the OP (who is obviously a troll) I can get it shut down.

    Re: is it time for us to leave the Big 12?

    Five years ago you were competing. You have gone through three coaches since then. It takes time to get a system in place. Going to the MAC/CUSA/WAC/Sunbelt isn't going to change anything. You need to have a system in place to compete. Dropping conferences would just mean the quality of your recruits would go lower. It took Mac a few years to put a winning team out on the field, it's going to take time for CPR to do it too. So stop whining.


    Watch it man there's a beverage here!

    Perhaps the OP is also one of those who believes Saturday's game was decided after the failed onsides kick.

    Yep, great knee-jerk reaction.

    jeeeeeze, melt down much?

    ISU will figure this out, and we belong in the Big XII. Give the new staff a chance. Heck, it (a chance) is exactly what we (ISU) were begging for after cheese dick left for Auburn. Someone to take a risk and come coach ISU. I'd give them 2 YEARS not 2 games to prove themselves.

    Leaving the Big 12 would be a huge mistake for ISU

    Worst idea ever. I can't believe this gets talked about at all, let alone as often as it does.

    Re: is it time for us to leave the Big 12?

    the cards are stacked against us. Small recruiting base, a budget dwarfed by the other schools. Im not demeaning any coach or AD weve had, just being a realist.

    Re: is it time for us to leave the Big 12?

    Let's see: We were a couple of field goals away from back to back Big 12 North Championships a few years ago.

    Men's basketball: Back to back Big 12 titles in this decade
    Women's basketball: Coming off an Elite 8 appearance
    Volleyball: #11 in the nation
    Soccer: Currently off to the best start in school history
    Wrestling: One of the best teams in the nation

    I think we are doing just fine in the Big 12.

    yes yes, let's join the MAC.... I can't wait for those annual battles with Ohio U. and Central Michigan.


    I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.

    Thomas Jefferson, 1802
