    From 2000-2010:

    Football: Five bowl games

    Men's basketball: Two Big 12 regular season conference titles, one Big 12 Tournament title, Elite 8 appearance, Final Four NIT appearance, and second round NCAA appearance.

    Women's basketball: One regular season Big 12 title, Two Big 12 Tourney titles, 7 NCAA tourney appearances, Two Sweet Sixteens, One Elite 8, One Final Four WNIT

    Volleyball: Top ten ranking, Elite 8 appearance, Sweet Sixteen appearance

    Wrestling: No National titles, but two second place finishes

    Not a bad decade for ISU athletics.

    I don't know, if we are allowed to use more than 10 years in our analysis and call it a decade, I bet I could find a rival.

    PS 2000-2010 is eleven years.

    not sure the decade would be the best, although the first five years were definitely probably one of the more productive 5 years in ISU history. Unless you are laying alot of weight on volleyball the last 5 have been disappointing and alot of rebuilding in MBB, FB and wrestling
