    BCS Bowl Bids??

    I really think if we join the MAC we can go undefeated and win National Championships within 5 years.

    Hear me out while I spew my crazy Hawk trolling garbage....

    If we schedule a tough non conference schedule with the likes of Iowa, Florida State, Nebraska (cupcake UNI) and beat them we'll be 4-0 heading into conference play. DESTROY all of our MAC opponents. Now we're 12-0 going into the MAC Championship. Given our strength of schedule, our computer ranking will be around 1 or 2.
    No way we are left out of the BCS Championship!
    We won't have to play those tough teams every year, because our reputation will turn into Boise State/Gonzaga (basketball)

    With basketball, we could be REALLY good. Look at Memphis, they are a "power" team in a weak conference. I could see our Clones do the same with Fred as our coach. We also wouldn't need to win the conference championship every year to make the Big Dance and compete for Sweet 16's.

    Mulligan.

    Hopefully post #2 will be a much better effort. Maybe put the big dog back in the bag and try to put an iron in the fareway, because that first one went straight into the drink

    Re: BCS Bowl Bids??

    If Iowa State ends up in the MAC or MWC, what makes you think we will still be able to recruit the level of talent we are currently getting? GUESS WHAT! We wont!

    Fan support will drop, attendance will drop, donations will drop. Cuts will happen...no way ISU will be able to maintain the same athletic budget it does now in the MAC or MWC.

    And this is just from the athletic side of things. Can you imagine the type of hit the university as a whole will take?

    compare and contrast to ISU facilities, for one:

    If we don't go to the MWC then where else we going to end up? Conference USA?? I doubt they survive.

    ball state started 2008 12-0, they were ranked #15, a National Championship is not really possible in the MAC, if they go to a (4) 16 team superconference we wont be allowed to play in a National Championship anyways so I guess it doesnt matter

    They didn't have a nonconference schedule including wins over Iowa, Nebraska, and Florida State.
