    Re: Death of the Big 12 - article

    The refusal of the big schools to share revenue will lead to the death of the big12. Those very schools will be hurt more when they go to another conference that makes them share revenue.

    Would ISU move to the MVC?

    Lost of wishful thinking in that blog. Texas isn't leaving. Period. They want to be the kingpin, and that's what they are. On the field, the Big 12 has been respected from day 1, and as long as Texas stays here, it will be.

    Could not agree more! I am in the camp that fears ISU could come out on the wrong end of conference "realignment"!

    As far as Texas is concerned, they can't go anywhere without Texas A&M.

    In a realignment ISU will end up being a WAC team.

    If there is a conference realignment ISU will be on the wrong side of it. IMO the B12 isn't going anywhere even if there are defections. It will simply add teams...

    Besides, Creighton doesn't have a football team.

    Exactly. We aren't going to have 4 super conferences. Texas and OU will always have their own conference to be in charge of, and ISU will probably be in it. Even if Nebraska, Mizzou, and CU all leave.

    Dude, just teasing. I know you're an ISU fan. Just thought it was kind of funny.

    Re: Death of the Big 12 - article

    Like it or not, a North school being poached by the Big 10 would be a major blow to the conference. Like the author said, at the least it would trigger a North/South division adjustment, because there just are no schools we could add to the North.
