    Iowa in Week 1

    With the future scheduling challenges of the ISU-Iowa series, what would you guys think if the Iowa game was moved to Labor Day weekend?

    Both conferences are potentially going to start playing conference games as early as week 2, just like the SEC. That gives the conference a chance to feature its bigger games each week. If either conference does that, there will be few options of where to put the Iowa-ISU game. Week 1 might be the only place it works. ISU-Iowa has opened the season in the past in 1983, 1984, and 1986. So it has happened before.

    I would personally love it. It would a new tradition to both schools and the preseason talk would be crazy. Plus it would be a huge exposure for both teams.

    ISU's schedule could look like this.
    Week 1 - Iowa
    Week 2 - Texas Tech
    Week 3 - Kansas
    Week 4 - D1-AA (UNI, SDSU, NSDU)
    Week 5 - Open
    Week 6 - Texas
    Week 7 - Oklahoma State
    Week 8 - MAC/MWC/WAC/Sun-Belt
    Week 9 - Oklahoma
    Week 10 - Texas A&M
    Week 11 - Mizzou
    Week 12 - Baylor
    Week 13 - Kansas State
    Week 14 - Open

    Iowa on Labor Day weekend and Kansas State on Thanksgiving weekend every year would be pretty cool.

    I think we need a game to warm up with. Playing in our major rivalry game in week 1 puts all sorts of pressure on the new guys to perform right away. We need a game against a weaker, yet respectable opponent so our guys can see what it's like out there.
