    1912

    1912 was the last time my Alma Mater, Iowa State University, won a conference title in Football. They were in the MVC then. Perhaps the MAC is not such a bad thing.

    The fact that we haven't won a conference title in football for nearly forever (which everyone on here already knows) does not in any way make a move of ISU to the MAC a good thing. Mediocrity is mediocrity, and who wants to settle for that?

    Yes, then it will have only been 4 years since the Cubs won a World Series.

    Not only will we not be able to bowl in the south end zone, but we will have to sell our scoreboard!

    MAC is not even an option. We will land in a conference that is BCS or has BCS aspirations. ISU brings a lot more to the table than you give them credit for.
