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'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'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's nothing but a chance for ISU to put Ames on the map.
