    I can verify this also from friends who are riding.

    Perspective from the Big Ten and some much needed clarifications

    Agree. Coaches can't recruit that way. It's suicide.

    Is This Longhorn Sarcasm?

    The Big 8 didn't add Texas as a "rescue" or "charity case" - we saw the revenue that adding them would give ISU and the others.

    Perspective from the Big Ten and some much needed clarifications

    Michigan State is a great peer institution of Iowa State, and vice versa. Many Spartan grads here in faculty/staff positions, including a couple of department heads. Iowa State grads at East Lansing as well. Two great land grant universities.

    Perspective from the Big Ten and some much needed clarifications

    Thanks for the link - I just notice that Howard signs basketball players from IMG Academy, or prep schools, which tell me academics aren't that heavily weighted.

    Report: OU & Texas reach out to join SEC

    Do we have any kind of Fan Fest or Kid's Fest next month? Lots of schools are coming back to these events after a year of Covid - to drum up fervor, donations, and loyalty. I don't see anything scheduled on cyclones.com.

    Perspective from the Big Ten and some much needed clarifications

    Wow. Please support this claim? Who has Michigan lost out on? For example, Juwon Howard is able to sign highly recruited players who don't seem to have to clear a very high academic bar. .

    But yet you have no issue "joining" evil Nebraska now, right? Amazing what Texas' greed does to schools...

    Wendy Wintersteen & Jamie Pollard Address the Fans

    You apparently forgot that Commissioner Beebe, with the support of the conference, gave Nebraska the ultimatum -of a week I believe - to declare whether they were "in or out." Nebraska then left. Yet Texas went shopping, in a very public way, to the Pac 12, but were given no such "ultimatum."...

    Wendy Wintersteen & Jamie Pollard Address the Fans

    But yet Nebraska was blamed for leaving - because they'd had enough of the Longhorns and their demands. "Boo Huskers - how dare they insult our daddy."

    Wendy Wintersteen & Jamie Pollard Address the Fans

    Exactly. And instead of blaming Texas and their insistence on the LHN, we blamed NU, CU, and MU. Called them "traitors." Our attitude, along with the rest of the schools, was "See Texas stayed. We'll hitch our wagon to them and we'll be fine" Ha.

    Go ahead and give her a break then. A university president should be more confident and commanding than that. That's what a leader is for. In way over her head - as many people who know her best have said from day 1.

    Yeah she is. That video makes ISU seem so inconsequential.

    Can the Big 12 remain viable

    Bill Snyder says the Big 12 will be fine.

    Report: OU & Texas reach out to join SEC

    Pretty obvious now that Nebraska was right to leave.

    Who is in the (BIG) Cyclone Camp?

    Me too. I'm kind of taken aback by the posters "assuming" we will be in the Big Ten. Why? Just because of message board talk among fans in that conference? That means zilch.

    ***2021 Olympics thread***

    Yes, perhaps we should have had a team that had a chance to play together and gel - but that shouldn't matter against France. Make France guard you on the dribble. Play some defense. We have tons more talent than they do. France has no one close to Durant, Lillard, Tatum, or Holiday. Yet...

    Where Will ISU End Up if the Big 12 Implodes?

    Well, I assume the Big 10 would take SEC Florida though - in that they're a much higher-ranked public university than Ohio State.

    Who is in the (BIG) Cyclone Camp?

    Wow. Schiano is big-time. It's going to be a total 180 at Rutgers.

    This is so true. My Hawk friends feel the same way. They would love to see it.
