    Let's Just Take Advantage of Our 2nd chance and Get Better!!!!!

    Instead of ***** and moan about the unknows why don't we as a Athletics Department and A Fan Base just take advantage of our 2nd chance, let's just get better. No Excuses, no if, no But's. Let's take our additional resources and get better, let's support of teams, and get better. Let's put ourselves in position to be a have and not a have not in 10-15-20 years so when this happens again we have nothing to worry about. WE ARE IOWA STATE, let's act like we ARE SOMEBODY, not like we are the little guy.

    GO CLONES.

    This could all very easily happen again in less than 5 years, when the new TV deal goes into effect (assuming it gets done in the first place). If it happens within 5 years, ISU is exactly where they were the day before yesterday. They are totally at Texas' mercy. Texas may be spreading the good word right now, but they can't be trusted at all.

    You can look at it that way, or you can say that gives us five more years to get better than we had for an option yesterday!!!!!!!

    If today's deal does not get done, yesterday's options may not have been any better, take what we have and go for it. As fans we need to support what we have, if we do not we will fail as some of you seem to hope we will.

    Let's not forget if we had ended up in the Big East, it was because the Big 12 was no more, then within that same 5 year period, the Big East would have been no more once the Big 10, SEC and ACC all went to the Mega Conferences, then we would have benn one of the 5-7 current BCS schools **** out of luck, do you honestly think that would have been a better situation. Texas may get alot, but we get to survive for at least 5-10 more years.

    Personally, I wanted ISU to go to the MWC. It's going to be a BCS league before too long. And megaconferences don't seem quite so inevitable right now.

    Getting better (or at least better to a significant degree) is going to be very tough without the extra revenue from the TV deal that is 5 years away.

    Also, I know for the bowl game you could buy tickets and them donate them if you weren't going to make it. Do they have anything like this for season tickets to give to students. I live too far away and work on saturdays.

    maybe, now, although we have to play OU and Texas every year... we will get the schedule mixed up a bit so we don't have to play them in Back-to-back away games.

    Who knows, maybe they'll make their way up to ames on a cold November day in the future?

    They are going to lose Utah. That would hurt the MWC immensely. They will have TCU, BYU and Boise State and not much else. Probably not a BCS conference.
