    G-R-E-E-D! Texas will NEVER be happy until they are the ONLY member of the LONE STAR Conference.

    Report: OU & Texas reach out to join SEC

    LHN is turned into the SEC West Network. Texas also has to agree to stop claiming that they would have beaten Alabama in the Jan. 2010 BCS Championship Game "If Colt wouldn't have gotten hurt." Just sayin'. / sarcasm

    Assuming the Big XII implodes, losing the Big XII tournament in KC will be a tragedy

    The West Loop area was desolate when I lived and worked in Chicago (20 somethign years ago), but there was a green line stop that was walkable. However, the last time I was there to see Iowa State in the Sweet 16, the area (at least Madison) had gentrified some what. I just walked back to the...

    ***Official USMNT Thread***

    @ Whoever Knows the Answer(s)! Which is more important: Nations League or Gold Cup? Does Gold Cup still determine who goes to the Confederations Cup? Is there even going to be a Confederations Cup before Qatar 2022? Hup U.S.A.!

    Where Will ISU End Up if the Big 12 Implodes?

    Sinple Answer = 2021 Big Xii Football Champions. Texas and Oklahoma can suck it. Let's Go State!

    Report: OU & Texas reach out to join SEC

    Texas is going to hate the SEC - which has always been and will always be an equal cut conference. Vanderbilt pulls in the same check that Alabama does! BOO!

    Where Will ISU End Up if the Big 12 Implodes?

    I have no idea! Point is, I was going to Iowa State games to watch bad teams under Jim Walden, and I will continue to go to games in the future regardless of HC or Conference. Hang in there! The sky is not falling. Let's Go State!

    Where Will ISU End Up if the Big 12 Implodes?

    Right On! FWIW, I sat through the 0-10-1 1994 season watching Iowa State lose to UNI (FCS), Western Michigan (MAC) ad Rice (SWC) in person! THAT was HARD! As for the AAC, it's not so bad. The Champion is usually in the NY6 hunt and will be more than likely make the 12 Team Playoff when it...

    Where Will ISU End Up if the Big 12 Implodes?

    Two other things that help a KU-ISU combo: It's a GREAT rivalry in Men's Basketball. Two biggest basketball arenas / attendance and two most passionate fan bases in Big Xii Hoops. They put a really good pincer movement on the Kansas City Market.

    Where Will ISU End Up if the Big 12 Implodes?

    If the Pac added TT, OSU, KSU and ISU, they would add 4 major state universities in 4 states in the Central Time Zone and stretch from the Pacific Ocean to the Mississippi River, That's a lot of TVs and decent TV markets without too much wear and tear travel with the 4 new teams, Colorado, Utah...

    Report: OU & Texas reach out to join SEC

    They are not going to take 4 Big Xii teams. Okalhoma State being in the mix (new footprint state) is not a good thing for ISU @ B1G.

    And ISU will move up signigicantly if they are invited to the B1G due to the C.I.C.

    I doubt the SEC would ever boot a team. However, if Miss. State was booted, the Big Xii should offer them an instant invite. Vandy can come too, as Nashville is a fun town!

    The difference is that they are not a two team top heavy league. They go much deeper than that, just not all in the same year (impossible). They go 6 deep in National Championship Programs since 1980 (Alabama (7), Florida (3), LSU (3), Auburn, Georgia and Tennessee with 1 each), 5 deep in BCS...

    Actually, Mizzou is closer to more SEC East Teams than SEC West teams now. Kentucky, Tennessee and Vanderbilt are in bordering states. If Mizzou was in the West, the only border they share is with Arkansas. East and West are just names, but if you look at the SEC teams with a diagonal line...

    Call it what you will. The AAC claims ot be a P6 Conference! Point is that with 8 Big Xii Teams to start with, that conference will have a leg up on the AAC and MWC. Additionally, if the Big Xii stays together, their contracts remain for the time being (Sugar Bowl tie-in, CCG, TV, etc.). If...
