    Not a chance. We're SOL if it happens. Welcome to the MAC.

    Big 10 won't happen. We provide no added market. It's all about $$

    there are 3 things in favor for ISU to a 16 team Big 10 conference

    ISU obvious in same state with Iowa
    Pollard used to work in the athletic department @ Wisconsin so has ties prob to The Big 10

    Gene Smithe the AD at Ohio State is a former ISU AD

    I think if the worse case scenario is that ISU, KSU, KU, OSU, Baylor, and Tech form a conference and find teams such as TCU, Memphasis, and maybe even Louisville and Cincinnati and form a new conference.

    The first is exactly why we are no value. We take away money from everyone else, and Iowa already has this market so we offer nothing else.

    Re: If there is a break up of the Big 12, where does ISU fit

    Call me an a**hole, but how many threads do we need on this subject? I can't for the life of me understand why so many people worry about all the potential scenarios. Let the people getting paid to deal with it deal with it and let's see how it plays out.

    End of rant.

    Agreed on this. Though from a geographic standpoint, ISU would be great for giving another close matchup and potential rivalries. Also, giving Iowa the ability to put our game in-conference would be a benefit (can schedule 4 easy teams and have easier track to higher bowls)

    I think we have a *very small* chance we'd get an invite, but i wouldnt plan on it. Need to just hope the big 10 looks east.

    Re: If there is a break up of the Big 12, where does ISU fit

    I agree, I think some people are freaking too much about this. While some schools may leave the big 12, we are not going to be the only ones left out of a conference. Like I said before, no one is talking about OSU, KSU or Tech going to a new conference.

    So how many threads do we need on this topic? All these threads and the doom and gloom have to be great for recruiting...


    "I'm proud to lead this program and this team in whatever we do. Whether it's a community service project, or through practice or winning a bowl game, but you don't do that without the kids believing and being all in, and going out there and accomplishing all [of] the goals and expectations that we set." - Coach Paul Rhoads

    More than there needs to be, but I haven't put my two cents in to them. However, everyone seems to be automatically thinking that were going to be out of a conference. All the talk is that Nebraska, Mizzou, Texas, Texas AM and Colorado are all going to leave. There are still 7 other teams in the conference that are never included in these expansion talks and those 7 teams will, in my opinion, will form a new conference.

    Re: If there is a break up of the Big 12, where does ISU fit

    I don't understand why we have no value just because we are in the same state as Iowa..........let's say this state is 60-40 in favor of Iowa fans, why wouldn't the Big 10 want that other 40% of potential viewers??

    Playing devils advocate, your talking 40% of around 3 million viewers.
