Thought i'd ask what everyone thinks the ideal conference for Iowa State would be, if you could design it now. (Purely an academic exercise, i know it won't happen in my lifetime). Forget TV revenue, just the ideal, rival-based conference for ISU.
I'd say the two biggest criteria would be geography and tradition. An even number of teams would be good as well.
# teams: 8 (in order of priority)
If you make it 10 teams, then I'd add Illinois and Purdue. But i like the eight team format, and round-robin play. This would be the Midwest, blue-collar, equivalent of the Black and Blue division.
