Iowa could drop the game, but right now there's nothing that says the Big 10 is going to a nine game schedule. It would make more sense for them to have a rotation like the Big 12 had as opposed to a nine game schedule.
Plus they are 12 for the time being, I think Chris is speculating that the Big 10 might expand further if Notre Dame sees the light.... I could see it next year....
Personally, I would hate to see this game dropped. I love to hate the Hawks, and if we aren't playing every year, I wonder if that would lead to complete indifference (much like their basketball fans).
Dropping Iowa would not give up our largest game attendance wise. The current record at JTS is the 2007 UNI game. It could be played annually without a home and home requirement. We might make more money this way if that is the issue.
Speaking as an obvious homer, it would seem like ISU would have a greater incentive to drop the series, as the new schedule is (seemingly) going to make it harder for ISU to get to a bowl game. Go the K-State route, schedule three wins, and and go from there.
That being said, ISU will probably have a hard time finding someone to replace Iowa that would fill the stadium like Iowa and Nebraska do every year, and with Nebraska off the schedule after this year...it's an interesting situation.
except that our all time record crowd isn't iowa or nebraska...it is UNI I think.
