It's interesting to keep tabs on the teams that left the Big 12. All except Colorado seem to be having a good year.

Colorado did well last year, but is struggling now. The Pac12 is odd this year. (Stanford scored 4 points in a quarter and has twice scored in the 30's this season.)

Not surprising for Texas A&M, which didn't really miss a beat going to the SEC.

Missouri is maybe the biggest surprise, since they struggled in the Big 12 and initially in the SEC, but coach Pingeton must have done some banner recruiting. Apparently they have a phenom freshman PG. I watched some of their game against Florida, and they are a fun, scrappy team. ISU fans would love to have their players and style of play IMO. (Not that we don't love our own players.) They seem to be excelling (surviving sometimes) without the typical size and athleticism of the SEC. Whatever they are doing, ISU might take note, because it could work in the Big 12 too.

Also Nebraska has recently come on in the Big Ten this season. Their freshman forward Shepard got national espnW player of the week. Maybe some lessons for ISU there too. They have been successful in past seasons, but struggled early this season.

The reference to Missouri brings up the question when Bill retires will we look outside the program or hire internally? I think Brenda F. would cost to much, but an up and coming coach like Robin would look at ISU as a step up at least as far as fan support. SEC is a pretty good conference, so who knows. LaToya and Jody all have lots of experience. Is the job already promised to Billy? Well food for thought from a fan who has no inside connections at all.

Pingeton's recruiting coup starts with her two nieces. Her sister Lisa's girls stayed home as their Dad is Robin's assistant coach. Two other sisters they played with at Columbia Rock Bridge are also on the team. Rock Bridge was one of the top HS teams in the country. In addition to the girls, Lisa has two sons currently at a private school in Columbia who are highly recruited.

Interesting. Thanks for the background. Coup, indeed. What a haul. Sister Lisa (mom of Porter gals) also played at Iowa. Here's the roster showing the Rock Bridge players. S. Cunningham is the phenom PG. That explains a lot.
