    Would ISU play Iowa in basketball if we join the Big East?

    Would we continue to play Iowa in basketball? Its a no win situation if we are in the Big East, if we win the game we were suppose to, but if we lose its embarassing. Iowa would also hurt our RPI for the NCAA tournament. I just dont see how the series benefits ISU if we were in the Big East.

    So it would be the same situation as when we were in the Big 12. Of course we would play them.


    It's all snark from here on out

    WTF kind of post is this? Playing Iowa is a win-win for both teams.

    We haven't signed anything with the Big East yet, and even if we did, you don't know if the basketball powers like G'Town and Nova are staying. Let's not jump to conclusions about RPI.

    Also, you sound EXACTLY like hawkeye fans that look down on playing us in football.

    Just stop.

    I think it's a joke, and I think it's hilarious. Mocking Iowa fans. Well done.

    Click on his username. In the menu that drops down, hit "find more posts by UNIGuy4Cy".

    Then tell me it's a joke.

    You guys seriously need to stop with the big east talk, it is not going to happen, you are getting your hopes up only to be kick in the nuts yet again. MWC is our best shot right now.

    I feel like you spamming every topic with MWC, but not giving us any real reasons why it's more likely or a better fit for us isn't exactly helpful either.

    and if you read my post at all, it was to tell UNIGuy to not count us in the Big East yet, as NOTHING is close to being finalized.

    Re: Would ISU play Iowa in basketball if we join the Big East?

    If anything from this expansion and dissolution, I feel that the rivalry has taken a huge hit. NU and Iowa are going to change the local sports scene (in a bad way, IMO), and invade Iowa sports talk and fanship. I really don't think Iowa is going to care about playing us if we go to the MWC. They will be speaking worse than they are now...it would be unbearable.

    reality check: I think both are long shots right now. But I am planning on a funeral for ISU football and hoping I am wrong.

    If we go to the Big East, why would we want to play a lower tier basketball conference team?

    Sorry, I shouldn't be acting like a Hawkeye
