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.

I would like to start off by saying by no means are the last few correct. I have no clue who deserves those spots as I personally don't think anybody does. Some of those were merely just to fill the spots.

I know this probably isn't going to do anything but I must rant somewhere about the officiating last night.
Alright these are some of my rants but there were other horrible calls such as now you can touch the ball if you're receiving punts but the other team picks the ball up you still get it back. This is made worse as the coaches were yelling at the players to pick up the ball and run with it. Also I know the coach as he goes to my church and you could tell he was extremely mad and he is about the most mild tempered coach in the world as he never gets mad. All in all I would say this was about the worst officiated game it really would compare to calling a facemask on the wrong team such as in I believe the 2004 Iowa bowl game but I'm not sure which one it was. Really just bad officiating last night.
