    I think you get what you pay for.

    Re: So i just did the math

    Unfortunately, overall revenue would be down for Iowa State in the MWC and travel expenses would be up. No matter what happens, we as Cyclone fans need to support our individual sports, the Cyclone Club, and our Athletic Department at the current level we are supporting them now. Even more. Remember, Iowa State is the victim in this whole thing. Clone to the Bone!!! I will support Iowa State with everything I have until I die.

    Not that I agree with the op and although there is one less home game, that is a fairly solid schedule... Pitt (top 20), UNLV (who we have hosted) TCU and BYU (both top 20 teams)

    Re: So i just did the math

    Do you think that the MWC schools are *****ing themselves over these theories? Do they even have message boards? We'd go from the plain Jane of the group to the chick with the best rack.

    Unfortunately, a fair portion of the guys in the group will have buck teeth and mullets.

    I honestly doubt that most of the MWC schools think any more highly of us, than we do of them.

    However, if we, KU and KSU made the move and were able to secure a BCS label.... I'm sure they'd be pumped. That goes without saying.

    Trust me, for sure Utah & BYU would kill to get in a conference with the remnants of the Big 12 if it happens. Straight from Morman Sportstalk Radio my friend ;)
