    ISU to the Big10?

    If the Texas schools are leaving why can't the big10 take in ISU,KU,KSU, and ND if they can get them for 16 teams? If the big 12 is done we need to start looking before its to late.

    A question mark would be nice after your title.

    One of the things I took away at the Nebraska presser today was the "comfort level" claimed for each other by Neb and the Big 10.
    If I were Geoffroy and Pollard, I would commence a "barnstorming tour" of every Big Ten campus, armed with a presentation to each univ. president of ISU's academics, culture, values, fan loyalty, and mission, to underscore why ISU is the logical next choice of the Big Ten.
    Also, we have TONS of great faculty here, some in high positions, who have Big Ten degrees - but also love Ames and Iowa State. Have ALL of them write or email every Big Ten president, telling them of their love for Iowa State and the Big Ten, and detail why it's a perfect match.
    But then, I'm sure they're working on something...aren't they?

    Or you could just merge it with one of the 800 other threads about ISU to the Big 10.

    be nice people, it is his first post. On the other side of things, we would have better luck starting a 5 team bcs conference than the Big 10 taking us.


    Quote from imported_blubberhawk on HN after ISU beatdown of Iowa in Carver '14

    "When you lose to a fricking joke of a program like ISU, you get what you deserve. That game is a perfect illustration of why our head coach should be retired.
    In defense of the Big ten network, it is tough to find Iowa games anymore when we aren't embarrassed."

    Re: ISU to the Big10?

    I will be nice and explain it. The big 10 wants to add teams that currently are not in a tv market that is paying $.75 a month to the Big ten network. Since all of Iowa is already paying this vig, ISU is not in play. It needs to be a market that is not currently paying the subsidy to the big 10 to make them worthy of an invitation. Academics and athletics are not really a factor, it is all about adding paying customers to the BTN.
