    Big 12 is still intact.....hold on a minute.

    So the Big 12 lost Colorado and Nebraska. As long as the Texas teams stay, which they might, the conference is still solid. So two Big 12 North teams are needed as of right now. Who could it be?

    Memphis, Cincinnati, Boise St.???

    Or move Oklahoma and Oklahoma St to the North and add TCU and Houston to the South??

    Just a thought. Thats all.

    We should just bounce. If we can, let's leave THEM.

    There is no statement from anyone of power about Nebraska (but this amount of smoke has to mean something)

    And yea...we could have an annual shot at the elusive win #6 over OU

    That does seem to be the latest, hottest rumor, but Texas sticking and filling in the missing 2 spots (and possibly adding more) is best for ISU I think.

    At the very least it's fun to speculate

    Chip "the tx pimp" Brown says the Southern 5 are all but gone. At this point, I'm ready to face a brave new world as opposed to kicking tumble weeds.

    They are sooooooo gone my friend. They are just waiting until after the bugeaters make their announcement. Only question is if they all go west or if the aggies go east.

    Really think that we would need more than 12 in the conference to keep in line with the large conferences.

    I don't think sticking around with Texas is good for anyone except Texas. Big East = way better fit and a fresh new start.

    Until some information replaces speculation - this scenario is as likely as any. In terms of revenue, the conference would hold steady with two good pickups. And, from our perspective, this is a good scenario, though not the only one in which we find future success.

    Re: Big 12 is still intact.....hold on a minute.

    Mizzou, Rutgers, UConn, and Maryland or Georgia Tech are the last four for the Big 10.

    ISU may end up in the Big East, but it won't be THE Big East...

    I want out from under the shadow of Texas. In the long run I think it will be better for us. We've danced our turn with the devil. Time to get away if we can while we still have a soul.
