    TX is full of ****. They are feeding that site info. They just dont want to look like the bad guy.

    IF the Big East rumors are true, I say we split

    Re: ESPN - BIG XII may stay together

    then if you are KU, MU, KSU, and ISU you get a deal from the big east and go to Texas ON YOUR TERMS or sign the Big East contract. We should be able to play this game too.

    Re: ESPN - BIG XII may stay together

    Texas just wants to make sure they get what is best for UT first. Period. And they want somebody else to look like the "bad guy" so they can keep all their bandwagon fans, and to maintain the favorable media coverage they always get.

    Too bad we have figured out their game. Pound sand UT. Pound ******* sand.

    We are out for ISU's best interests now. Period. If that means reciprocal loyalty to long time rivals such as Missouri, KU, KSU, and anyone else from the old Big 8, fine. But we are putting ISU first.

    Hoist the colors, let's take care of ISU. This is serious business.

    If we're going down, we just as well go down swinging rather than just taking strike three. I want JP to go on the offensive with whatever we have.

    Re: ESPN - BIG XII may stay together

    Personally, I think TX would want to keep the Big XII together. They are king of the hill here along with OU as far as talent and they are calling the shots in this conference. They have the loudest voice without question.

    If they walk to the Pac 10 then they are the new kid on the block. Yeah, they still have a strong voice but they aren't a founding member and they don't have as much pull compared to the rest of the league with USC, UCLA, Oregon etc.

    Just my point of view.

    IF we get this Big East thing locked up (as in assurances no one bolts, etc) then I say you give the South a big EFF YOU.


    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!

    From reading TigerBoard, it seems that most Mizzou fans would rather stay in the Big 12 than join the Big East. It makes some sense as Mizzou is right in the middle of the Big 12 in terms of geography.

    On another note, this Bloomberg article says that Rutgers may not be able to afford a move to the Big 10. It makes you wonder if Syracuse and Maryland are in any better shape.
