    So, what would happen

    If out of the blue, the Big 10 extended ISU a invitation for membership tomorrow?


    (I am happy as hell the Big 12 survived)

    Won't happen, but you take it. Stability and an equal share.

    Re: So, what would happen

    You'd have to take the Big 10 offer. It's a stable conference that is going to be around for a long time, and with equal sharing of more money. The Big 12 has a stay of execution, but could face the Green Mile again in a few years.

    You fly down to Texas, moon them, flip them off, and then say, "Peace! I'm outta here!"

    If someone asks you if youre a god, or asks you to join the big 10, you say YES.

    Re: So, what would happen

    You definitely say yes. I'm an Iowa guy, so I'm biased, but it makes the most sense. Texas is a cancer that WILL ruin the conference eventually. The Big Ten is the most stable conference out there, and you're guaranteed an equal share of revenue.

    I had been somebody who wouldn't have minded ISU joining the Big Ten at all. I knew it wouldn't happen for the obvious reason that they don't deliver new TV revenue, but I would have had no problem with them joining.

    You say yes. Of course, you say yes and quit your current job when you win $50M in the lottery too. Neither is going to happen however.

    What would happen if I won the lottery, had 4 playmates fall in love with me, and got a disease that made drinking beer, eating cheeseburgers, and sitting on my *** all day good for me?

    Re: So, what would happen

    I would press the button labeled "Accept Invitation."

    Make no mistake, I'm glad in the short term that Big 12 found a way to stay glued together, even having to make concessions to do it. But think of it this way: What would the other nine schools do if one of them got a Big Ten invite out of the blue?

    Re: So, what would happen

    We're Iowa State so it would go something like this.

    The year after we entered the Big 10 they would get rid of their current plan and the biggest schools would get the largest payout.

    The day after we left, Notre Dame would go to the Big 12 and they would agree that there should be revenue sharing for all 10 teams.

    We would ask Nebraska what that loophole was again.


    Best of luck
