    I really hope Pollard has been in communication with the people of the Big 10. If they go to 14 or 16, ISU's chances on getting in are very high.

    I really really hope Iowa State can join the Big Ten or whatever it is called in the future.

    Anything beyond 12 in football isn't worth it. That 9th or 10th bowl isn't going to make up for make up for the money being split with all those extra schools.

    Did anyone catch the final segment last night with Matt & Miller. Some guy from Mizzou. I thought it was a great interview and loved to hear what that fella had to say about the Big XII and how the north, sans NU, get f'd over on a pretty regular basis.

    some others and I were throwing around the idea of them adding mizzou, nebby, and isu. it'll be interesting to see that if they want more than one team, whether they choose to go in one direction or expand on all sides.

    The SEC only has 12 teams, don't they?

    That won't happen. IF they were to make the stupid move of adding three teams, they would probably be Rutgers, Pittsburgh, and Missouri.

    I still think the Big Ten is going to make a big push for Notre Dame and will only expand to 12 teams.

    Yeah - my mistake. My math has been off about the last 17 years or so....

    whats dumb about adding three teams? I agree though that if its only three than those are three most likely.

    Re: The Big 14?

    This would be about the only way I could see ISU getting into the Big 10. They're not going to take us on our own as we have nothing to offer by ourselves. But as a 3-5 team package, it becomes much more interesting. By adding both Mizzou and ISU, you add yet another trophy game, make another two trophy games conference rivalries. Basically, you set up a division consisting of Iowa, Illinois, NU, Wisky, Minny, ISU, and Mizzou to be one of the most hate-filled divisions in all of the NCAA. That being said, I'm not so sure the Big 10 is interested in expanding beyond 12 (admittedly I haven't read the Tribune article as I'm on my BlackBerry).

    They don't really increase the Big Ten's reach much at all. Nebraska has a great football tradition, but they're in a small market. Iowa State realistically adds nothing to the Big Ten. Missouri is a decent option.

    If the Big Ten were to take three more teams, two of them would be out east. Probably Rutgers, Pittsburgh or Syracuse, and Missouri. Yes, I know Rutgers doesn't have a great football history, but you're kidding yourself if you think Iowa State's is any better.

    Re: The Big 14?

    If I recall correctly, the Big 12 took out the copyright - or whatever it's called - on the name Big 14 when the Big 12 was formed.


    ISU fans are the greatest in the world. All they ask for is hope and the belief that we have a chance to win every time we step on the field - Johnny Majors (paraphrased)
