    This would be pretty interesting if the details get worked out and add another "good" non-con game that ISU wouldn't have to negotiate in the future.

    @AlexHalsted Jamie Pollard said the Big 12 is in talks with the Big East about some sort of basketball series. Not necessarily a challenge but maybe some sort of scheduling pact down the road as some leagues go to 20 conference games.

    @AlexHalsted Steve Prohm likes the idea. He said it could replace a home and home type series like the one with Missouri this year and give them a good game each year to go with Iowa, the SEC Challenge and holiday tournament.

    At this point, we need to drop Iowa off our schedule. It's a lose-lose for ISU. Maybe just play them once every two years, but always in Ames.

    In all honesty, they should probably just drop their men's basketball program. Carver is a wrestling facility.

    This would be great. A noncon of SEC/BE/Iowa/UNI/Exempt Tournament gives us basically 8 games, probably at least 7 of which are interesting. The rest can be basically buy games and it's still a great schedule.

    Based on net rating per 100 last year as a "challenge" top to bottom...

    Kansas v. Villanova

    West Virginia v. Xavier

    Texas Tech v. Butler

    TCU v. Creighton

    Baylor v. Seton Hall

    Texas v. Marquette

    Oklahoma v. Providence

    KSU v. St. John's

    OSU v. Georgetown

    Iowa State v. DePaul

    Assuming this is somewhat based upon standings, I think I could handle playing Villanova regularly, going forward.

    Then we need to have a better season next year, else we will be playing DePaul or St. John's in something like this. Chicago or Brooklyn would be nice, though, as places to have a game for fans and/or for recruiting purposes, though. I could go to either.

    That is a scary thought if they continue on the pace they are on.

    I think that would be awesome. They have good programs that are probably like us, and have a difficult time scheduling high major opponents. These conference challenges, force teams to do a home and home with good opponents essentially.

    A game in Chicago might not be boring for the 4 players we have from the area.

    What is 'net rating'? K-State has just scheduled Marquette for a H&H starting this fall at the Warriors.

    It's less about the players on our roster and more about the level of competition. We should be striving to be playing teams with some national recognition.

    Sig, thanks for that post there would some pretty interesting games in that series. Most those teams have pretty solid name recognition it would be way more fun than some of the games we end up playing/scheduling.

    The good thing about this is the team can earn the higher profile games by performing well. Assuming it is like the SEC challenge and they attempt to match programs by expected performance every year.
    Though it is a minor aspect, I like the idea of getting extra games in the Mid-West and North-East for the recruiting aspect.

    Of course they don't want to make this a league vs league challenge, I mean why have that with two leagues that actually have the same number of teams

    I think I would really enjoy the road trips more than the home games. A lot of the Big East teams are in large cities, so could make a vacation out of it.
