    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.

    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.
