Hawkeye Fan Punks ESPN blogger

Alright, is there a Black Heart Gold Pants denizen named "Hawkeye Joe" around?  If not, which one of you punked Brian Bennett over at ESPN?

Hawkeye Joe from St Joseph, Mo., writes: Brian, hear me out here and try not to laugh. On the topic of expansion, do you think that the B1G will ever consider Iowa State? I'm serious here. Iowa State is an AAU school and one of the top agricultural schools in the country. The B1G already has 90% of the population of Iowa as fans, might as well add the remaining 15 people. Iowa State may not be the most impressive football program as they're about 90 wins short of .500.... Just a couple years ago they beat Minnesota in the Insight Bowl. The Iowa State stadium is named after Jack Trice, who died after an unfortunate run-in with Minnesota. The Cyclones got their name after a beat down they laid on Northwestern back in 1895. Another advantage of adding Iowa State is it would free up Iowa to add a different non-conference opponent. Plus, adding Iowa State would mean I would only have to follow 1 ESPN blog instead of 2. 

Brian Bennett: Hawkeye Joe, I'll let Jim Delany know about your blog-reading habits and see if that has any influence. But I just don't see Iowa State as a viable candidate. For one, it adds nothing in value to the league since the Big Ten already has those TV markets sewn up with Iowa and Nebraska. The Hawkeyes wouldn't support the move, either. Iowa State is one of those teams that is in serious danger of being left out if the Big 12 crumbles.
