    Kick ISU out of the BCS

    According to Bleacher Report, Iowa State is one of 10 teams (joining Minnesota, Mississippi State, South Florida, Utah, Indiana, Washington State, Duke, Baylor, And Vandy on the sidelines) that should step aside and make room for TCU, BYU and others to join BCS conferences.

    Druzilla is a provocateur and trolling for responses and he got them.

    Month in and month out I find Bleacher Report to be the most ill-informed, idiotic site "covering" college football. The recruiting, coaching, and opinion pieces are inaccurate and almost always just wrong.

    Here's to kicking *** and taking names in 2010!

    Re: Kick ISU out of the BCS

    The answer is to allow more conferences access to the BCS not take away the rights of others.

    Half of those teams had winning records in BCS conferences last year. They definitely don't deserve to be there.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Re: Kick ISU out of the BCS

    It does have some merit. On the other hand ISU only needs to bowl in JTS and by doing so, the program will magically transform into a consistent national top 20 program. True.

    K State needs to be on this list as well.

    Re: Kick ISU out of the BCS

    They do realize of course, that if BYU, TCU, and others were in the Big 12, Big 10, SEC, etc... that they would then also make their list of teams that should be removed?

    What I'm saying is that BYU and TCU would also not compete very well in the big time conferences as they do now in their lesser conferences.

    ISU is in the top 30 schools in the entire country in athletics. The Director's Cup says so. How good is TCU at basketball?

    Heck, Utah just joined a BCS conference. Now they want them gone. This guy is just trying to get people riled up. Its always easy to kick the little guys.

    It does mean something, it tells the strength of ALL programs compared to other schools.

    Yeah, I care too. Doesn't bother me if ISU is bad at the non-revenue sports, but if you are going to play them, you might as well try to win. I also like that those student athletes have a good experience at ISU. I'd trade 40 spots in the Director's Cup for an extra win in FB, but to say that it is worthless is pushing it.

    It also helps the overall budget. If WBB and Volleyball are bringing in more people to watch the games/matches, it reduces the amount they need. This also helps FB down the road.
