Andrew Jones is on a distinguished road

I guess I don't know too much about Big 12 football deals with TV, but the Big Ten has its own network. Perhaps that does nothing for money, but I think there would be a higher exposure rate for Iowa St. to main areas of recruiting for sports obviously beyond football.
I think the reason I mention a Big 12 team mostly is because I see the Big 12 benefitting from removing a team that is a touch lower in caliber than one they could potentially add, being a TCU or Houston.
I'm saying the incentive might not need to be there for Iowa St. It perhaps should simply become necessity. Yes, that is unlikely to ever happen, but I think in the end it might make everybody happy (exception perhaps Iowa St.). The Big 12 gets better and the Big 10 gets another team.
