    Re: Big 12 Commish cancel news conference

    My thoughts:

    1. I hope that when it all washes out, ISU is in a major conference

    2. I'll cheer on the Cyclones regardless of conference.

    Ya I don't really believe all the people who say they won't cheer for ISU if they leave the Big XII and aren't in a major conference. I root for ISU because they are my favorite school, not because they play in the Big XII.

    I don't think people will quit cheering for ISU, but I think they'll care a lot less. I think season ticket sales will plummet drastically, and I think University enrollment will fall off a little bit.

    I'll be honest, i'll cheer for ISU, but i'll probably add another (or just a, i guess) major team to cheer for. Lets face it, its a lot less fun to be a fan of a lower tier team. Less opportunities at good bowl games, less opportunities for tourney appearances, less possibility for upsetting a real national power, etc.

    Thats fine, I already have another major team I cheer for now.

    yeah, there's probably a lot of truth to this I'm afraid.


    Never argue with an idiot. They will bring you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

    Lucky you (I'm serious, you at least have Illinois schools to fall back on). Many of us don't, being from Iowa.

    My general interest level in college football as a whole will drop considerably if ISU is not part of an AQ conference, rather than cheering for another team, because really, I don't have another team to cheer for besides Iowa, and that's not happening.

    I guess I could close my eyes, chuck a dart at a map of the US, and cheer for the closest BCS school to where my dart lands.

    .
    Id tend to agree with this.

    Though my biggest problem with iowa tends to be a lot of their fanbase. If a lot of ISU fans started being Iowa fans.. their fanbase might become a bit more tolerable thanks to the former ISU fans there.

    Ive always been a bigger college than a pro fan, but maybe i'll just start going to pro games instead of college.. that might be a better option than going to Lincoln or IC.

    We will have a harder time keeping good coaches here also. Rhoads will be lured away much easier, and there's no way Christy Johnson will stay here as VB coach.
    We will become more of a stepping stone than we ever were before...

    I agree with this totally. I actually grew up a fan of both schools, and didn't hate Iowa until I had really experienced the arrogance of their fan base up close and personal. From constantly slamming Ames, the University, and acting like Iowa State was this second class institution, it just made me nauseous. It's one thing to rip a team I cheer for, it's another thing to degrade an entire community that meant/means a lot to me. People like that are the biggest reason I can't bring myself to cheer for Iowa anymore.

    CJL was one of the first i thought of as we know she's had offers. No way she turns those down if we're not a major conference. She's aiming for national titles, and that gets a heck of a lot harder if she's not in a top tier conference.

    I don't know if that's true. UNI has had a solid Top 25 (and for a long time Top 16) program and they play the MVC.
