    I just emailed Pollard encouraging him to pursue the Big East option if the Big 12 dismantles on Tuesday. I don't have any pull but I feel strongly that the Big East option is the best for ISU

    Mainly because of travel, I don't see how Baylor fits.

    Re: Jim Williams with a fresh article

    So, is this something that ISU officials will consider now, or wait to hear what the South schools are doing?

    Publicly, Iowa State can't say anything about any other conference until the Big 12 officially implodes.

    Re: Jim Williams with a fresh article

    Am I the only one that doesn't understand why all of this is happening? Wasn't the Big 12 one of the top conferences? Did we suddenly get crabs or something? WTF?

    If the schools from the South don't leave, the conference remains in tact. We all know UT would be more than happy to make sure we pay to get out of the conference.

    The administration probably thinks that it's in ISU's best interest that the big 12 stay together Athletically and Academically. Plus, look what happened to Mizzou when they said they wanted to go to the big 10, they look like idiots now. There are probably several scenarios that they have gone over, and I bet the number 1 priority is to keep the big 12 in together.

    What's the worst that could happen, the South gets mad, runs to the Pac 10 and leaves high and dry without a conference? Seems like we're heading for that anyways.

    Talk was Villanova was going to elevate their football program to D1, give the Big East nine teams. By adding five, you have an even number at 14.

    Re: Jim Williams with a fresh article

    I just dont get how people think that the Big 12 is sticking together. Only fans on this board seem to think it might stick together.

    Every other media outlet is saying that it is a matter of days before it is 100% gone. Why are people keeping their heads in the sand. The Big 12 is gone. ISU needs to be extremely proactive findind somewhere..... ANYWHERE... to play football.
