Down the Pipe & Natty Lite - Episode 49: Iowa State and Conference Realignment

New, 8 comments

It’s the summer, so naturally we talked realignment for no reason at all.

With UConn heading back to the Big East (for everything except football), we took a look at how this specific move could affect Iowa State in the future. Could the Cyclones get their chance at a revenge game for the 2014 NCAA Tournament?

Then, we dove into conference realignment as a whole. What might it look like this time around? Could the Big 12’s deal with ESPN+ actually be ahead of the curve, and pave the way for strength at the end of the current TV deals?

So let’s say the Big 12 is going to change. What two schools would we add to the conference to bring it back up to 12? How about if the conference imploded? Where would we want Iowa State to land?
