    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.

    Re: Hypothetical on ISU changed to lesser conference.

    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.

    Re: Hypothetical on ISU changed to lesser conference.

    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.


    I'm on Twitter too: Tre4ISU

    Or so I have read.

    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.
