    Tech beat ISU in Ames and the rest of the conference is good. Until ISU can have more than 1 upset / year, we can't complain.

    Luckily Saturday can change the outside's view of ISU.

    The only one I see that's even debateable above ISU is Baylor.

    I'm surprised he didn't put ISU at 9. IMHO, we deserve 8 right now. Tech is 7 and they beat us on our own field. We win this Saturday, we go up to 5 or 6.

    Baylor should be below us, but beyond that it is hard to argue with that list.

    The worst part is I think we're a better team than Tech. We just laid an egg that day.

    The team that scored 63 on West Virgina should be ranked below ISU?

    What team do you think we deserve to be ranked above? You could make arguments for Baylor and Oklahoma State, but after losing to Tech not terribly strong ones. I think we'll win those games but ranking us below them isn't some crazy slight.

    Try not to care. He will look stupid if we do differently. We look stupid when we throw a fit about what he says and then prove him right. I am under the impression he taunts us on purpose because he knows he can get a rise out of us. In the end, his opinions are irrelevant.

    Baylor is the only questionable one that I could see us above but they clearly have a better offense and in the Big 12 defense helps you win games but offense will win you games. To rise in his Power Rankings the team needs to show they can beat teams(we are only 1-1) but that we have the offense to compete.

    Sometimes I feel like there is a large part of our fanbase that goes around trying to find things they can be upset about. Half the time you can't tell who is trolling and who really is upset about every imagined slight.

    They scored 63 in a loss. That makes them look good to you?

    We have a better resume, they are ranked above us on reputation alone.

    i dont care about the power rankings or his predictions but choosing to go to TT vs WV instead of Farmeggedon or Red River Rivalry is unbelievable to me

    So.... Do we like him or hate him now??? This is too fluid for me to follow or form my own opinion. I'll just follow the rest of you on this.

    I also think Oklahoma State is debatable.

    How could he pass notes to his crush Geno Smith if he was in Dallas?

    I honestly think we are a better team than Baylor, and far better than our performance against Tech.

    I believe we should beat OSU but we shall wait and see on that one.

    Seriously, is there any way we can start a separate David Ubben forum that I can opt out of seeing every time I log on, Just like the Cave?

    Everyone who posts his name in the title of a thread realizes you are just boosting his popularity and giving him more cred with any bosses or advertisers he might have, correct?
