Iowa St and Wyoming to FCS
Every time I bring up ISU to the B1G I get completely shouted down, and they're a Big XII doormat. Wyoming is in a similar non-competitive situation. Would they be served by dropping down? It would certainly make realignment easier.

I didn't think so either, I was just thinking that ISU and Wyoming complicate realignment.

How? Wyoming is in the Mountain West for the long-term future. From what I gather, the other Front Range schools won't ever leave them behind and even if they did, they'd still play OOC. So long as Wyoming chooses to be FBS, they'll always have a home in a Western conference.

Iowa State, worst case, drops down to the AAC or MWC, or is part of a rump Big 12 that picks off enough top-end G5 schools to at least maintain a tweener status for football.

I don't see how they complicate realignment at all.

Cyclone: if they go to either of those conferences, they're STILL isolated! Going to the MWC makes it WORSE! You're probably right that Wyoming is okay FOR NOW, but if the Big XII raids the MWC to rebuild, they become isolated.

No, neither will drop to FCS. A school could only "complicate realignment" if there were actually a grander plan shared by the majority of FBS or P5 schools. Instead, it's just a bunch of individual schools and conferences and networks looking out for number one.

Well, that's just too damn bad.

Love: that OU win put them about 50 games under .500 against them. The Kansases are about the only conference rivals they're remotely competitive against.
