    If ISU went indy

    Could we tailor a schedule that is as good/better than the one we have now? Could we split up between Big Tweleven / Big East / Pac 10 etc.? Or would the schedules from the teams from those conferences preclude it?

    I'd rather go indy than be in a mid major...

    I don't think this would work because we wouldn't have the TV revenue to back our Athletic Conference like we do now.

    ďI told you, I donít care if youíre black or white. I donít care if youíre rich or poor. I donít care where you come from, whether itís Texas, Florida, California, or right here in the state of Iowa, I donít care about any of thatÖ But what I did care about is moving forward from that day on, that we were one team." -Paul Rhoads

    Without a conference, we would be Drake with a similar budget.

    Ask yourself if you think it would work if Baylor went independent. Then, slink away in embarrassment.
