    Could this happen for Iowa State?

    Ok so the Big 11 picks up Nebby, "forcing" the south schools to go to the pac ten, then Notre Dame Denies the Big 10's offer. Colorado fees to the MWC leaving ISU KSU KU and Mizzou could the big 10 pcik up these four schools? Mizzou for the market they offer the kansas schools for their basketball prestige and then just throw in ISU cause we are close.

    Yeah, this could actually be a good sign since if ND comes to the Big 10 they will then need 3 more schools...at least one more for sure to get to 14.

    Re: Could this happen for Iowa State?

    We've discussed endlessly that KSU has no shot in HELL to make it in because they are Tier III. KU/Mizzou/ISU/ND? Now that's a maybe. Sounds like the KS BoR is backing down.


    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 "I", for "S", forever!
    For Iowa State do it right!
    It's time to climb up on the vict'ry wagon,
    Fight! Iowa State, Fight! Fight!

    Big 10's next couple moves are East before they look west again.

    No (I just found out there is a minimum character limit for posts).

    Bingo!

    We have next to nothing chance in going to the Big 10. Missouri does MUCH more for the Big 10 than we do. So does KU for that matter. So does Rutgers, Syracuse, UConn, you name it.

    We are VERY far down the ladder folks. Just accept that fact now and you'll be a lot better off.

    They will go after Big East teams to get the east market, most notably the New York schools like Syracuse and Rutgers. They will not go after ISU, KU, or KSU.

    Only if this is only about TV sets. I know, it probably is only about TV sets.

    I disagree. If you look at athletics, ISU has strong wrestling already and KU and KSU don't. Iowa being in the Big Ten helps based on ISU in the same state. ISU would add a research component (ag) that would help. ISU academics in general are much better than both KS schools.

    I agree that ISU is down the ladder, but I also believe ISU's chance at the Big Ten is greater than either KS school.

    Re: Could this happen for Iowa State?

    I think we are better off if ND accepts. They then need another team for sure and they likely go to 16 so then they need three teams. I still don't think we are one but I could be wrong.


    I'm on Twitter too: Tre4ISU

    Or so I have read.

    Wrong. ISU's chances are not better because ISU has a 0% chance of joining the Big 10. They want Nebraska, Notre Dame, and the East coast. They want to get Syracuse and Rutgers to get the New York T.V markets, making their conference that much more money. They have no interest in ISU because they already have the Iowa market, and ISU has no prestige in any sport except basketball. Wrestling makes conferences very little money, if any, so no one cares how good you are in wrestling. It's all about football and ISU is a historic doormat for football.

    It's ALL about TV sets. And ISU adds virtually none. Game over.

    Why do you think the Big 10 wants ND so badly? The entire country watches ND.

    If the Big Ten gets both ND and Nebbie, they are golden. And if the Pac 10 goes to 16, you can bet that not only the Big Ten will match them at 16, but also the SEC and ACC/Big East. Big East teams the Big Ten has been flirting with may not be so interested if their current conference starts to up the ante and may hold off on the Big Ten. IF that happens (just playing devil's advocate), the Big Ten would still need three teams to get 16. Missouri likely one. Who else?
