Iowa State fan here.
Do you guys think the Backyard Brawl will continue as a non-conference game in the future? I really hope it does, and see no reason not to as you both left the Big East for greener pastures. As some of you might know, our fiercest rivalry is outside the Big 12, with Iowa. We play every year, almost always in week 2 (occasionally week 3). We all really enjoy it, and guarantees a meaningful non-conference game every year. I would have to think you guys would look into doing the same with the Brawl. College football is about hatred for your uppity shit head neighbor, and it would be a shame to see such a hate-filled affair fall by the wayside for no reason. I think it would be a great addition to the Big 12's annual non-con slate, alongside the Cy-Hawk. Thoughts? (and welcome aboard)
