Just a few years ago, ISU had better facilities than Mizzu, Nebraska and KU, around 2000 all three of those programs made a commitment of $2-10 million to baseball and since then all have made the post season. Mizzu has become a conistant top 15 program, Nebraska a consistant top 25 team, and Kansas a team that will reach the post season every now and then.
It would take at least a $8 million stadium to have a legit program in the big 12. With the talent base already in Iowa, combined with the JUCO programs around, I have no doubt ISU could be a consistant top 40 program.
Its nice to hear this is some baseball talent in the state. Since ISU has done away with baseball other programs have benifited.
