    I didn't realize it until this moment...

    I've been reading all this nonsense about Nebraska and Notre Dame and I can't help but actually want ISU to be in the Big 10. Just a little self-realization.

    As an Iowa fan I would rather have you guys in the conference than Nebraska. I dislike ISU but despise Nebraska. Every time I see Osbourne I think of Lawrence Phillips. If the Big12 falling apart is bad for ISU it is bad for the state of Iowa so screw the huskers.

    No offense here, but couldn't this have been stated in one of the other threads already started...

    I really can't understand how anyone in the state of Iowa regardless of fan affiliation would want to harm an in state university in any way. Makes zero sense.

    I mean no disrespect to some of our finer feathered friends here - but let's be honest. There are more than a couple fans who probably don't realize that Iowa and Iowa State are actually academic institutions and not sports clubs.

    Unfortunately just like the media a lot of people are looking at this as a sports only issue and it is not by a long shot. ISU could be hurt academically by this which is bad for the state of Iowa. Some of my Hawkeye brethren are being short sighted in their snickering at the ISU athletics predicament by not realizing this is bad for their home state as a whole.

    In an unrelated story, I like to eat rocks from the street and punch myself in the face.

    Not only are they only looking at it as only a sports issue, but they are only looking at it from a football standpoint. And not just a football standpoint, but only the TV revenue that can be gained from adding schools. It seems like such a small aspect of a university that is being looked at as the only reason to *** teams or not add them. If the whole Iowa State University is damaged because they don't have a big enough television audience for one sport, that is rediculous.

    you state that football is such a small aspect of a university (and I would agree). Say the worst happens and ISU is part of the Mountain West or C-USA or some yet-unformed league. How would that alter the entire school? I can see the ramifications for football, but how would the rest of the university be harmed? Not trying to be a smart-butt, just asking the question.

    If Nebraska and Missouri both end up in our conference ISU will find itself surrounded by CIC schools with far more funding. It will start hurting them for top students and faculty. This is bad for the state not just ISU.

    I agree and I've never understood the hate between the two fan bases. You and I both know if the roles were reversed, there would be A LOT of Cyclone fans that would be gloating if Iowa was being left out in the cold though.
