I really hate this discussion but really we can't just sit back and not do anything. I honestly think that Jamie Pollard needs to shop us around to the Big Ten, Pac 12, and SEC. I really don't want to but I think it is neccessary in the survival of our school. Especially with our new found growth in Mens Basketball and in Football. Along with our continued success in Womens Basketball and Vollyball. I think that it would be fairly reasonable to be a new entry into one of these conferences. I believe the best would be going to the Big Ten as there is Nebraska, Iowa, Minnesota, and possibly other Big 12 North teams if some of this goes through. That means that we would not be a extreme outlying school. We also have some of the best facilities in the midwest. We have Jack Trice which is expected to be expanded the way it is and if we are able to keep growing we may add to that. We also have one of the better college basketball atmospheres with Hilton and holding a top 5 attendence record in WBB and a still respectable crowd for a recovering MBB program. I think that this would bring a lot to whatever conference we would join as we also travel very well. When you put this all together I think that we are a very big underdog on what we have to offer. I know we don't have the money that others do but I think we are gaining respectability and also with joining another conference we may have some added support because the Big 12 has long been stereotyped as very top heavy. So lets get this moving and not screw ourselves.

Well I don't know how many people have heard about it but Ames is like Venice right now. The whole city is flooded out it is like an island. Now with this and Iowa State being located there part of the campus is also underwater. That would include Hilton and Stephens Auditorium along with a bunch of other buildings in that area. The last time that this happened the Cyclone basketball team started doing good. Guess what it was called. "Hilton Magic." That is right it is back. The Iowa State Cyclone basketball team is on the rise and is ready to be back where they used to be. At least I hope they are. Thankfully though this has not affected the actual football field but the water is all the way up to the Jacobson Building which for those of you that don't know it is the building at the end of the football field. Lets all hope that everyone is alright and they can get back to being the greatest university in the country.

Here i'm going to see if I can correctly predict the Big Xll.
Sleeper Teams: Iowa State, Missouri, and Baylor
Look for these teams to possibly make a run this year.
