    I agree...ISU is too big and has too much to offer academically and athletically to not be included in a major conference.

    Re: Talkin with Tron: So what?

    I don't think anyone would disagree with Tron about the academic and student body population. If we were on the east coast no question. The problem is geographic isolation. If the Big 10 doesn't invite and the Big 12 south broke up there would not be enough major schools in the area to form a conference of major schools large enough to field a BCS conference. You can say the old big 8 was, but 8 teams don't cut it anymore in the field of BCS conferences.

    Yes, we are big enough by student body. Yes, we are an AAU member. Yes, we have the attendance to be a high major. It's a question of geography.

    What about KSU then. They're even further out in the middle of nowhere, but there seems to be no talk of anything bad happening to them.

    That's right. It is very unlikely that Kansas and Kansas State will ever be split up, much like A&M and Texas.

    Re: Talkin with Tron: So what?

    Thought I'd share what I wrote previously on the home page...

    Bravo! Spot On! What else can I say? Talkin’ with Tron needs to be weekly segment here on Cyclone Fanatic!
    So What? I have been saying this for a long time and just haven’t had the chance to put my thoughts into a post!
    I’m not just a fan…I’M A FANATIC! Ask my family…my wife gets a little sick of how much of a FANATIC I really am!
    By the way Chris, are you going to be at any of the Tailgate Tour Stops? If so is there any chance you can talk Tron into coming to any of the Tailgate Tour Stops? I would love for both of you to come up to The Legendary Surf Ballroom in Clear Lake and maybe have you all tape one of your Talkin’ with Tron segments for this wonderful web site!
    Just a thought –
    brother bob!


    Cyclone fan since 1964 and proud of it!
