    ISU Men's Baseball ???

    Is there any effort or any discussion about reviving the Men's Baseball program at ISU. I hope there is. I don't feel we're a completely well rounded Big12 program without it. IMO.

    No because nobody went to the games. Nobody supported it. Nobody cared we had a team until it was gone. So I say keep it gone and use that money for the big 2. Football and basketball.

    This has been discussed several times in the past few months...

    So does this mean that Colorado, Kansas, Kansas State, Baylor, Texas, Texas Tech, Texas A&M aren't well rounded Big XII programs since they don't have wrestling??

    Some, but there is a definite conspiracy by the 10 people who want bb to return to post such a question on one of the Cyclone boards each week to creat the impression that there is a groundswell. Question back to you. KU and KSU wrestling! Is it still offered in high school. How can they be a legitimate Big 12 school without wrestling?

    Why do they play boys HS soccer??

    I guess since they don't have soccer and baseball at Iowa State, we had better stop playing it at the HS level in Iowa.

    Do they have wrestling in Texas HS's??? If so, why don't the Texas schools have wrestling programs? The Big XII has Wrestling.

    Re: ISU Men's Baseball ???

    If there has been discussion on the board, I am sorry I've missed it. I do not wish to stir the pot if its already been stirred.

    I was actually wondering if there is any interest or consideration in the Athletic Department - rather than interest by the posters.

    I feel the need to justify the well-rounded comment (I did not say legitimate). There are 10 out of 12 B12 schools with Mens baseball. Only 5 of 12 have Wrestling. The majority of Big12 schools have a baseball team and the majority of Big12 teams do not have a wrestling. The well rounded intention plays to the majority of the conference.

    Re: ISU Men's Baseball ???

    TFEUXCAKS,

    The problem is that everyone keeps asking about baseball but nobody was even willing to go when it was around. I don't even know where the baseball field was to be quite honest with you. I am a huge baseball guy but if it can't support itself then there is no need for it. Don't get me started on some of the other sports that basketball and football support.

    cybsball20,

    You and I have differring opinions regarding ISU baseball. Let's just agree to disagree and let it end there!!

    Re: ISU Men's Baseball ???

    I have a great idea. Admins, create an ISU Baseball forum and the 10 people who care can discuss it ad nauseam! Forum threads shouldn't show up on the "Recent Threads" section on the top of the home page though.

    Re: ISU Men's Baseball ???

    I still don't know why KSU and KU don't have wrestling since in is big at least in eastern kansas. I know a good group of people would like to see baseball come back but it is hard with the weather in Iowa just being three hours south like MU and KU helps out big time. It wouls be nice to bring back the men's sports that were lost especially men's swimming and gymnastics since they were consistantly good. I would also like to see Hockey maybe move up but I just don't think that ISU has the money to support any of them and until football gets excluded from title 9 rule they just can't. I didn't care for baseball when I was at ISU because I didn't think the games were interesting and a lot of the players were down right a-holes when they had no right to be.

    Don't you think the fact that people didn't know where the field was had something to do with poor support? If ISU had just smidge of support it could definately be successful... Not to mention playing in the best baseball conference in the country... Baseball is the second biggest D1 sport behind basketball. There are what, a few dozen wrestling teams? A couple dozen hockey teams?
