    If the Big 12 Dissolves ....

    ....due to NE and CU being unhappy campers wanting more money, we will see some rugged conference games just before the conference is gone by 2013. Schools like ISU will be primed to clean clock against the turncoats. Animosity will prevail on the court and on the field. The boo birds will be out. Let's blitz CU on every play.

    I hope we clean some clock this year. Nebraska is going to wish they had that 8 turnover game after this year is over (I hope).

    Re: If the Big 12 Dissolves ....

    We should refuse to play Nebraska ever again including this year. Then we could go out with scoreboard having beat them last year. Just kidding but it would be nice to beat some of these big dogs before they leave in 2012.
    Just think. Only one more time seeing OU and Nebraska at "The Jack". That is sad.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    It very well could dissolve - Texas wants Nebraska in-conference so it can have the 4 votes necessary to vote down any type of revenue sharing. Who would the Big 12 be able to bring in that won't want a piece of the revenue that Texas feels entitled to?

    I don't think Nebraska would come calling too much. From what I have heard, Iowa has approached Nebraska for home and home since they last played in 2000 and Nebraska has never accepted. Nebraska is good for an OOC game w/ a decent opponent and the rest cupcakes.

    Re: If the Big 12 Dissolves ....

    What would be really sweet would be to do a repeat of the last Big 8 basketball tournament. Win a football or basketball championship in these last couple years of the Big 12's existence and turn a nice middle finger on everyone for bailing.

    No, but they have the power to join the Pac 10 and take 5 other schools with them, effectively scrapping it...

    If that's the point then I tell JP to swallow the pride and vote with Texa$. The difference from Baylor to Texa$ is 3 million dollars. I don't think we stand to make that much more. We certainly stand to lose a lot more.


    For "I", for "S", forever!
    For Iowa State all the way.
    Let's go! To show them what the gang's all here for,
    Go! To show them how the Cyclones cheer.

    For Iowa State do it right!
    It's time to climb up on the vict'ry wagon,

    You do realize that when the ADs voted 11-1 to have the Big 12 football championship game "permanently" located in Dallas, JP, wasn't the 1 "nay" vote, right?

    JP has made it publicly clear he would prefer the Big 12 shared revenues equally. At the same time he doesn't bite the hand that feeds.

    JP voted that way to get the basketball championships, something we're competitive in, near KC. When revenue sharing has come up in the past, its been 8-4 and Iowa State has been in the 8 votes.

    Re: If the Big 12 Dissolves ....

    It would be pretty sick to have Iowa State win the last two Big 12 championship games ever showing the other conferences ow ISU shouldve been the the team to pick up
