    ISU belong in a Super Conference?

    Matt Perrault doesn't think so and also wants to see a four team "Super Conference champion" playoff. This would mean ISU has no chance of winning a National Championship.

    Assuming four 16 team conferences so a total of 64 schools what do you base inclusion on. Recent success? School size? Tv's? Current conference. Personally I don't see how you can make a case for any MWC teams over ISU for inclusion. Nevada? UNLV? Utah? Surely no WAC teams or Conference USA teams. Maybe a couple Big East teams.

    So who would be the lucky 64?

    Thank God Matt Perrault has nothing to do with it. Next subject.

    Matt Perrault thinks hugging his sister is getting lucky.

    Thoughts?

    Re: ISU belong in a Super Conference?

    If ISU doesn't belong in a Super Conference than neither does KSU, Baylor, Washington State, Oregon State, Vanderbilt, UConn, Texas Tech, Oklahoma State, Stanford, Northwestern, Indiana, Mississippi State, and Cincinnati.

    I literally read 'Matt Perrault' and stopped reading. The guy is a anti-ISU moron. Nuff said.

    Re: ISU belong in a Super Conference?

    Do you think we have a chance at a national title the way it is?

    I would say no way. But that doesnt take away from any of the fun I have at ISU games.

    The only change that will come from all this is that there should be some openings in the local sports media.

    Realistically there are 10, maybe 15 schools that have a "realistic" chance at the MNC.

    I've always thought this is what's wrong with college football. Approx. 40 teams have a chance to win the National Championship. The others could go undefeated but still stand no chance. But like you said, I still have fun at ISU games.

    Re: ISU belong in a Super Conference?

    did you guys catch the part where CW was talking with the guy from Kansas, about their mutual hate of Mizzou.... why Mizzou got passed over for the bowl, etc.

    And all Perrault could do was jab at ISU fans. "You're only saying that because your ISU fan". Something about Mizzou has an inferiority complex to KU (the KU guy brought that up and CW agreed) or thinks they're on par with the big boys. MP - "And Iowa State doesn't?"

    Matt - you ^#$&*#&*$&*!. How did Iowa State figure into that conversation? Why the need to jab EVERY SINGLE TIME!.

    Fact, ISU takes more fans to the bowl than Mizzou does, that's why they were picked. Because CW is an ISU fan doesn't make that FACT less true!

    You wonder why people feel you have an anti-ISU bias? An agenda? Listen to your tapes.
