    The MAC has been the conference that seems to always come up for ISU. That would be good for MAC wrestling since ISU will probably never drop it's program.

    I like ISU to the MAC. They seem to fit the level of competition. A bit far away from everyone else though.

    Since I have no idea why teams are switching conferences, I will assume it's b/c of money? If so, would the MAC provide as much money as ISU would want from all of it's sports? I know Miami (OH) football stadium is quite small and since Big Ben left, they don't get much attendance. Not sure if ISU would want a league like that. But, I would love it for the wrestling program and I hope they do come.

    Well after Texas saved the conference, Texas A&M ran because they couldn't beat Texas. Now Oklahoma doesn't want to go back to the Big 8, and if they go everyone goes. The Big 12 has always been about Oklahoma and Texas.

    Texas has basically killed the conference. Nebraska wouldnt have left if Texas wouldnt have threatened to leave first then been greedy about the money disbursement. The Big Ten has created a very successful model that the Big 12 couldve followed but Texas doesn't give a rip about the rest of the conference so they threw a fit over it. I don't blame Nebraska for leaving at all. They could see the writing on the wall so they bolted as a result of Texas' seflishness. The B12 office has been on their knees in front of Texas for years and now they will pay the price as soon there will be no B12.

    As far as Iowa State goes I think they would be smart to get out now and find a major conference to join. They are a good school in just about everything except football.

    That's exactly what I heard about the Big 12. Nebraska was the first to pull out because they were tired of the way Texas dominated everything. I'm sure the Pac 10 (or whatever they become) won't give Texas the preferential treatment they've become accustomed to. I'm a little surprised that more of the Big 12 schools didn't join the Big 10--but I heard that academics played a part in at least some of the cases.

    As far as I can tell, the Big 10 didn't make an offer to any of the other Big 12 schools.
    Missouri was basically all dressed waiting for the Big 10 to take UM to the prom and... they never showed up. The governor of Missouri even completely embarrassed himself, the school, and the conference with his statement comparing the Big 10 and the Big 12 and why Missou would definitely accept an offer.

    As far as further expansion, Missouri is a good geographic fit, but I think Oklahoma is a better choice for academics and athletics. Missou might help with tv coverage in KC though. I'd love to see the Big 10 pick up Oklahoma and Notre Dame as we shift to 4 big conferences (probably not realistic in the near future). That would make a monster conference, especially for football, but would not help wrestling. I'm worried about how the shifting affects the remaining wrestling schools in the former big 12.

    OU and Oklahoma State would be safe, Brian Smith strikes me as a guy who would rather die then let Missouri take the program from him, and Iowa State is in Iowa. But after UNO I will admit all bets are off.

    Missouri to the SEC is what worries me. With no other schools in conference to compete with, it could be a dangerous position.
