    PTL & Big Four Classic

    PTL done effective immediately.

    Big Four done after this year. Iowa needed even more "scheduling flexibility".

    I have fond memories of that game 29 years ago, but I still don't want to go back to the Dome to play a game ever again. Nostalgia is great, and I have fond memories of those days. But that's where they belong - as memories. I also have unfortunate memories - of a leaky roof on the game court during a basketball game - of someone accidentally turning the lights off right before tip off and it taking near an hour for the Dome lights to turn back on - etc. It's not a place to play a basketball, and we have absolutely no reason to return to it. For those of us that were around when the McLeod Center was just a dream, seeing it actually become reality - and be as beautiful an arena as it is - is something I don't think we'll take for granted. I have no desire to go back.

    Alright. I can take a broken dream from BAP!

    So, I will shift the remnants of my dream to the possibility of a game in McLeod. And if it happens, although I will be happy with the outcome no matter what, I pledge to wear purple!

    P.S. I was at the last UNI/ISU game in Hilton (won by UNI ). I wasn't sold on Hoiberg and that game didn't help as I found myself being critical of his "roll out the ball and let them shoot" style (as I then viewed it). However, I was very impressed by the good ball movement by the Panthers ("Can't anybody see the back-door cut coming!"). That was an early part of my emerging Panther fandom.

    I know the Mac era wasn't a high point for Iowa State basketball but they weren't even close to the worst P5 in the country. They were easily better than Northwestern, Oregon State, Washington State, Penn State, Nebraska, Texas Tech and a lot of the SEC at the time. If you throw in the old Big East and call it the P6 at that time there's another at least half dozen schools they were better than. Hell, he only finished last in the Big 12 once, .

    FWIW, 3-1 against Mac, 2-1 against the Mayor and 1-1 against Prohm. Overall record 6-3. My bad on the typo.
    ISU is the only P5 team to not make any postseason tourney from 2006-2011. They may not have been the worst, but they were consistently awful and McD did a phenomenal job if he was trying to crater the program. And that's with multiple NBA players on the team during most of that time.

    Beat them in Des Moines, and get the crowd chanting chicken Fran.

    Iowa State and Iowa are both too chicken**** to play UNI.
    yeah, it sucks, but not worth groveling to them or bending over backwards to schedule them.

    Yeah, he got tickets from UNC's Brice Johnson. I guess they are/were friends.

    I didn't say UNI vs ISU was not an event. It's a good in-state rivalry between peer programs.

    It is not...however...an event that would remotely justify us moving a game from our home basketball arena (which has hosted far better programs than Iowa State) to our home football stadium.

    We play hoops in the McLeod. We play football in the Dome.

    That is all.

    2 of them. The one to Mac and the one to the Mayor.
