At least they almost all agree that we aren't "MAC" level.
Thanks for the link. How about this gem:
"ISU is, for the most part, MAC level. They would fit right in as an upper tier conference contender. They would also become a natural NIU rival."
Interesting to get a different perspective.
I think this should some that whole thread up...
:nah: :confused: :eek: :mad: :realmad: :skeptical:
I might come back later with some actual facts...
Nice to hear another fanbase that isn't just bagging on ISU.
lol at the guy saying we would never get an offer from the big east..... we already did last year buddy even if we aren't sure if the offer still stands.
I couldn't wait...
If Iowa State is MAC level then you would expect there to be a pretty good competition between them, what is Iowa State's historical record against current MAC schools:
21-4 with an average score of 32.7-18.8
Yes, it certainly appears we are MAC level... In fact, just to throw another interesting tidbit out there: Our historical records against conferences show that our 84% winning percentage against the MAC is the second highest against any conference, the first, the Big East where we are 1-0 (Pittsburgh in 2000).
DoubleHuskie84 sounds like a hawk fan...
We would dominate the MAC year in and year out. Would that be fun? Probably, but i'd rather play the Texas' and Oklahoma's of the world.
I love how they said were not good enough to be in the Big 10 from a performance level. What is it about people who are in Big 10 country with thinking the Big 10 is some high performing league on the field? Do they ever watch college football? Don't they see the Big 10 getting their butts handed to them every year in bowl games? The Big 10 routinely gets beat by the MAC, and even D 1A (like UNI). Of course they probably have no idea the Big 10 is 8-17 against The Big 12 the last few years. One thing is for sure though, Iowa State does have an image problem. Need win more consistently I guess.
