    Look, we play in the Big 12. Plain and simple. Year in and year out, we will have one of the toughest schedules in the country - especially with Iowa performing so well. We better just get used to it, as it&#39;s not going to change anytime soon. Look at the list, 5 of the top 15 teams on that list are in the Big 12. Shocking? Not at all.

    This is a challenge, of course. Yet it&#39;s also an opportunity. If ISU would have won the North last year, they still would not have received a ton of respect as they did not face the powerhouse teams from the South. This year, we do.

    It&#39;s nothing but a chance for ISU to put Ames on the map.

    Iowa&#39;s SOS (49th) is most daunting....I sense a NY-based trophy in the future and healing elixer of life to ooze from Tate&#39;s pores

    I don&#39;t know, the big 12 north is lackluster, and underachieving. I&#39;d rather play in the big 12 then SEC or ACC

    good point ISUFan.

    6 BigXII teams are listed in the top 20 of toughest schedules (3-N and 3-S divsions). While there is just one from the Big11Ten.

    good facts to use in rivarly debates. So long as we don&#39;t use it as an excuse for a 6-6 season. I would prefer us to use it when we are 8-4 (or better&#33;) to boost how far we have come.

    interesting point here: UofI: 49th with both Michigan and OSU on their schedule this year.
