    Where Will Iowa State Be In 5-10 years?

    Okay, I have shy'd away from a lot of the conference realignment talk and we all know how bad Mizzou wants to go, how Nebby wants more money. UT holds all the cards with keeping the big 12 around. The Pac 10 is going to benefit huge from the big 12 breaking apart and the big 10 only wants a select couple teams. People all seem to think Iowa State really has no say, doom and gloom says we are at the will of everyone else. While possibly true to some extent I thoroughly believe Iowa State has a lot to offer a BCS conference being both athletically viable, academics, athletic facilities and fanbase. I do not see us falling to a non-BCS conf like the MAC where I think our superiority would far outway our competition. Possibly a new form of the MWC being a BCS conf finally though.

    So my Q and poll to all of you is, where will Iowa State fall in all of this?

    Worst case-MWC with KU, KSU, and couple others but it will be a BCS conference then with the addition of BSU as well.

    Best Case- The Big Ten can't get the first teams it wants, wants to go to 16 and we get in there.


    It's all snark from here on out

    In the Big 12, possibly with some different members. But, it'll still be called the Big 12. We will have at least 2 conference championships in either football and/or basketball in 5-10 years as well. Jack Trice stadium will be bowled in and we will have a statue of Johnny Orr outside Hilton Coliseum, kind of like the Jack Trice one outside of JT stadium. We will also have renamed the court, Johnny Orr Court at Hilton Coliseum.
    ISU will be stronger than ever at that point and our fanbase will be on cloud 9 walking with our heads held high. We will also look back on this day and laugh at all of the freaking out that is going on. We will also look back and say, "Thank God that actually happened!" (whatever it is, that is going to happen)
    You heard it hear first.

    I wish Notre Dame would just end all these discussions by joining the Big Ten.

    Re: Where Will Iowa State Be In 5-10 years?

    I like the possibility of us being in the "SUPER BIG WEST" conference where NU/Mizzou leave for Big 10 and the remaining teams join up with the Pac 10 and form the super-conference.

    Either that or the Big 10 because we are a better academic fit for the Big 10 than Mizzou or Nebraska (which pulls more money than athletics no matter how you look at it).
