    Hawkeye fan not happy

    With whatís going to happen to ISU. I am in favor of the state subsidizing ISU at least until they can find a viable option for their situation. Iím not going to lie, I love the fact that Iowa is benefiting from all of this but not at the expense of ISU. I was born and raised in this state and I take great pride in it. So for what itís worth this Hawkeye fan is on your side.

    Hopefully, both the Big East and the remaining Big 12 schools will agree to join and form a 12-team football conference. ISU isn't going to be left out in the cold.

    Well we thank you for your support, sadly it doesn't seem like most of the rest of Hawkeye Nation feels the same way. They are getting their kicks at ISU while we're down...

    You're going to get excommunicated for that. But, thank you. :-)

    Re: Hawkeye fan not happy

    Yeah, most Hawkeye would hate you if they saw that. You aren't snickering at our situation. Thanks for the kind words though. We don't get many of them from the Hawkeye side.


    It's all snark from here on out

    Well I use the same screen name every ware I go so you can link my commits if you want to onto hawkeyenation board. I personally don't understand where they are coming from on this but I guess I will have to agree to dissagree with my Hawkeye Brothers on this one. Go Hawks go Clones

    Why do ISU fans keep stating this? From what I've seen in person and on several different Iowa boards(also including here), a small percentage of Iowa fans are giddy about this happening while most realize the consequences of ISU getting kicked out of a BCS conference. M

    Re: Hawkeye fan not happy

    That's nice.

    However, we have been competing in a BCS conference without anybody subsidizing us. We haven't been at the top of the Big 12, but we have been very competitive in most every sport. This is not about us not being BSC calibur, this is about TV sets and no schools (including Iowa) caring one bit about our future.

    Re: Hawkeye fan not happy

    This is a bad situation for the people of Iowa. We have been one of the few states in the country where fans had a choice of major conferences to watch on any given Saturday. We have been like a city with both an American and National league team. Football fans in Iowa are the losers short term, long term student athletes in Iowa will lose opportunities to compete at the Dvision one level in Iowa.

    I was at a wedding in eastern Iowa today and all the comments I heard were similar to "what community college conference is ISU going to be in?"

    I guess I don't understand why we care what Iowa fans think. I appreciate the support but don't give a rip that others are getting off on our situation.

    I presume that they were experts on the community college education system.
