    Alright.....All in.

    I've been pretty worried about this conference expansion stuff, and it's obvious that the Big 12 is toast, but ISU may hang on to some relevance.

    The thing is, it's just as likely that we might be done being even close to relevant. I'm truly worried about being relegated to the MAC. Well, you know what? **** it. We can't control a damn thing about any of this, so we might as well have a good time. If we learn that 2 years from now, we're going to be in the MAC, then I say we all give it everything the next couple of years. Let's pack the Jack. Let's scream our guts out for the Clones. Let's leave no doubt that ISU is a major school whether they say we are or not. Let's drink a few more beers before every game, and by God, let's leave major college athletics, beer in hand, singing till the wee hours of the morning, a good 10 minutes after they shut the bar lights off.

    First off - No way in hell we drop below the MAC.

    We'd be in the best non-BCS conference if we aren't already in a BCS conference.

    You know what, you're right. If we're really loyal sons forever true, let's show it! And if by some sad chance we do end up in the MAC, I'll still be a Cyclone and you know I'll be cheering like Hell for my Cyclones to get the MAC AQ for basketball!

    For I! For S! Forever!

    Re: Alright.....All in.

    Let's think about this. Is there anything out of the ordinary we can do to show what our fanbase is like? I can't think of anything to draw any attention but maybe someone else can

    YES! Let's be proactive about this whole thing.....let's get some ideas rolling!!

    How about this......we send 10,000 emails to the Pac 10 commissioner telling them to take ISU along with the other teams from the Big 12.

    We could always have everyone convene in Iowa City and pee all over all of the Herky statues around town simultaneously.

    Damn straight!!! If we're gonna go down, let's go down swinging and ride off into the Big XII sunset with our heads held high. Are we capable of purely willing ourselves to the last Big XII north title? Let's go for it!

    I think by putting up some of the best attendence numbers in the conference could show us a little bit

    Re: Alright.....All in.

    I like the email idea, but I think it could be better to email the Big Television comish. I think that we have a better shot with them than the PAC 10. Come on guys, if we can win every online poll/ playoff, I'm sure we can do some damage/ at least make ourselves feel better that we didn't take this thing sitting down. We've talked about JP has no power and we certainly don't.

    But when our powers combine, we are!!!!.... Hilton Magic?!

    And since this is becoming the best Kool Aid thread of the month, how bout we do it up right:
