    Hypothetical on ISU changed to lesser conference.

    How many of you would stay a Cyclone fan first and continue to buy season tickets if ISU was say moved to the MAC or Wac after all this Big 10 realignment.

    I'd probably be done honestly.

    I definitely would not become a Hawk fan just because that scenario played out!

    I would still cheer for Iowa State...it would be strange though after all these years to lose those traditional matchups!

    I can assure you I wouldn't have the same financial commitment...

    Although we may have better shot at BCS if in MAC? Who knows?

    Re: Hypothetical on ISU changed to lesser conference.

    ISU would have to schedule an outstanding home non conference for me to still be interested weekly in attending the games.

    I think it would be harder to get the same 'type' of athlete. I would assume some drawing power of ISU is being in a power 6 conference. That would be off the table.

    Re: Hypothetical on ISU changed to lesser conference.

    I voted no. I know it's a dbag move but I gotta be honest; I want to be in a BCS conference. I think a move down would hurt the program badly and eventually (in not too long) ISU football would cease to exist.

    Would make little difference for me.

    Go Cyclones!

    Re: Hypothetical on ISU changed to lesser conference.

    i feel bad saying this, but no. I'd follow KU basketball a lot closer than I already do, and probably pick up a football team I like from a major college to follow closer.

    I would still cheer for ISU and follow them, it would just be a huge change.

    Re: Hypothetical on ISU changed to lesser conference.

    Will never happen but good question. I would move to a different primary team but I would still be a Cyclone and would still be at every game I could.

    Re: Hypothetical on ISU changed to lesser conference.

    i would remain a fan, but my interest level would likely drop, and my financial committment would certainly drop.

    Re: Hypothetical on ISU changed to lesser conference.

    The whole conference is not just gonna disolve and ISU be the one leftover. There will be a replacement for the Big 12. IMO OU, Texas, A&M, KU, KSU, Baylor, Nebraska, OSU are not going anywhere.

    Exactly.

    Moving to a non-BCS conference just kills ISU, IMO. We need to stay in the Big 12, period. A school with ISU's size, fan base, and facilities, it's just wrong to be in a Mickey Mouse conference.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    ISU is still my alma mater.
