    ISU:Dead man walking

    Lets face it folks our days in the Big XII are limited, get ready to be the punch line to hawk degenerates near and wide.

    Really our only hope is that JP and President Geoffroy create some kind of pack with Kansas, KSU and Mizzou (if Mizzou gets left in the cold). Otherwise our Athletic department is toast. Basketball can not/will not be the driver of revenue no matter how many games we win...unless of course Hoiberg is the next Wooden. The powers that be need to be proactive, there is much more to lose than just a conference affiliation.

    Re: ISU:Dead man walking

    And we needed yet another thread why?

    Does this whole mess remind anyone else of all the fake Big Brother alliances?

    Perhaps we'll fly under the radar and be the big winner at the end?

    Re: ISU:Dead man walking

    Then leave. Get the hell out of here. I'm really getting tired of the constant doom and gloom of some fans. I'm an Iowa State fan, I won't tolerate being the punch line of any hawkeye. ISU is not going to cease to exist. In no way, absolutely no way, are we a dead man walking. The mere fact that you believe that to be possible just amazes me.

    I agree with this guy.

    I'll be glad to, the possibility still remains if ISU is not in a BCS conference football ticket sales will drop dramatically. Other sports will likely be dropped dont forget that we are working our way off of assistance from the state. I'm not happy about this but I am a realist, so while some choose to bury their heads in the sand, I like to prepare myself for heartache.

    Once again our AD and president need to look long and hard about creating some kind of alliance with KU, KSU and MU. Those who sit and wait also serve.

    One thing is certain, this situation has shown how many "fans" really feel about ISU.

    We survive on a grand total of 1.2 million dollar of assistance from the state. You honestly think that if we are not a member of the power football conferences, then ISU athletics will no longer exist? Honestly?

    Re: ISU:Dead man walking

    My suggestion is to get out before the entire building collapses. Create our own conference. A one school conference. The Iowa State Conference. And demand the winner of the conference get an automatic bid to a BCS bowl game and NCAA tournament every year.

    understanding where we fit in the money dominated world that is NCAA football and our love and devotion to ISU are too VERY different things. You can think that ISU is a GREAT school that provides good education and entertaining sports and still be open to the fact that the rest of the NCAA money DOESN'T CARE.
