    University of Iowa at Ames

    I know this may be way out there but with all of the financial problems the state is having will Iowa push for a system like Wisconsin now that the Big12 is breaking up. Iowa at Iowa City as the flagship with Ames next followed by Cedar Falls.

    Since most Iowa fans now see us as a definite second tier team why wouldn't they push to make it official? I wouldn't want this but I could see it as a logical argument from a Hawk fan as a way to have solidarity in the state and allow them to be "the" school.

    Ehhhhh.

    Re: University of Iowa at Ames

    I'm all for it, but with a small revision.

    Name UNI "Northern Iowa State University" and Iowa "Eastern Iowa State University"

    That way both NISU and EISU would benefit with from their affiliation with Iowa State.

    Can all current and former students enter into a blood pact that we will burn the university to the ground before we allow this to happen?

    Nope, not unless ISU get to keep their name, I don't want to have to buy a whole new closet of apparel.
    And my real answer is, NO.

    I didn't say the hypothetical situation would be popular. But we all know they want us dead.

    I know this is somewhat tongue in cheek, but I do believe that is the way those arrogant sobs view ISU. Don't give the BOR in this state any ideas. If they could strip ISU to the bone athletically and academically they would do it in a heartbeat. All this process has done is expose that for everyone to see.

    You're not the only one. To quote CW from yesterday "ISU fans are just sick of getting kicked in the junk".

    C'mon guys... Can't we put the Hawkeye Inferiority Complex aside for a little bit? Seems like maybe there's some bigger issues in Cyclone Nation at the moment- like the fact ISU may not have a conference by the end of the week. Just sayin'...

    Uh no. Seriously, there is a lot more in play in that scenario then just sports.
