    FB - Sure thing, Bust, Sleeper

    I've seen this on other boards and I think it's fun. For the upcoming football season, list your sure thing, your bust, and your sleeper.

    Sure thing: Texas. They return a lot of talent, add a lot of talent, and were nigh unbeatable with McCoy at the helm. He'll be back and ready to go 100%.

    Bust: Kansas State. I can't really think of a good bust, but with all the new coaches again I just don't see them catching lightening in a bottle for a second straight year.

    Sleeper: I still think Mizzou has a great chance to win the North.

    Re: FB - Sure thing, Bust, Sleeper

    I'll keep mine within ISU:

    Sure thing: Ace Bowen will knock more than a few people on their ***** this year. Can you say Butkus award?

    Bust: I have absolutely nothing to base this on and I hope to heck I'm wrong but I'm scared that JJ Bass will not be what he's cracked up to be. Especially with a make-shift offensive line.


    Sleeper: With Blythe drawing a lot of attention that will leave burner Wallace Franklin to catch a lot of balls. And with his speed let's hope he finds the end zone often!

    Re: FB - Sure thing, Bust, Sleeper

    Sure thing: Oklahoma. To me, they have an easy schedule. They're toughest road game is "at Texas" - that doesn't count. After that the toughest roadie is Texas Tech. They do hose Miami, yet they're not playing good ball right now. From the North they face Missouri, ISU and Colorado. Face it, not much to get frightened about.

    Bust: Something smells in Missouri and it's not the cookin'.

    Sleeper: It's the Big 12! This is Division I football. It's not intramurals. Basically saying, I have no sleeper - but you never know in the Big 12.

    Sure Thing: Nebraska and Oklahoma in the championship game.
    Bust: Colorado has a 3 win season.
    Sleeper: Kansas takes second place in the North, OSU finishes third in the South.

    Re: FB - Sure thing, Bust, Sleeper

    Sure thing- Oklahoma/ Texas... They are always good...

    Bust-Kstate, Freeman is getting the most hype ever for a QB that had horrific stats from last year...

    Sleeper- Colorado, I think they have the talent and they lost so many close games last year.

    Re: FB - Sure thing, Bust, Sleeper

    sure thing: chizik doesn't keep it close vs UNI

    Bust: Gold pants...the uniform critics will pan these to no end, and we already made SI's worsed dressed without them.

    Sleeper: Bass. Gotta have faith people.

    Re: FB - Sure thing, Bust, Sleeper

    Sure Thing: No team in the Big 12 is a sure thing. Texas has questions that need to be answered on defense. And oh by the way, they lost Chizik, too. OU has plenty of talent, but what about their QB? Granted, they had a WR at QB last year and won the Big 12. So if there is a sure thing, I'd say OU winning the conference again.

    Bust: Oklahoma State. Look, I like the Pokes but they aren't going to contend for the Big 12 title. Bobby Reid is vastly overrated and their defense is still soft. Their last time out, Alabama torched their defense. That speaks volumes to me.

    Sleeper: Texas Tech. Nobody expects much more than 7-8 wins from the Red Raiders, but they could surprise. They can still drop 50 on you on any given Saturday.

    Re: FB - Sure thing, Bust, Sleeper

    Sure Thing: As much as I hate to say it, Nebraska wins the North. As the North sits right now, it's not exactly something to be extremely proud of, but Nebraska is the best team in our division. Have they returned to prominance? Absolutely not. They're just the least stinky turd in the diaper that is the Big 12 North. We are turning it around though, and I hope our division can be competitive with the South in the near future. The movement of young coaches should breathe a lot of new life into our division. I'm looking forward to the future of the North.

    Bust: Texas. By bust I mean they win 9 games. They have the athletes to win a lot of games, but their defensive mastermind is in Ames and Colt McCoy still has to prove something to me. Vince Young's shoes still look mighty big...

    Sleeper: Oklahoma State. The Cowboys are getting better and better. Now if they could only keep their coach this time...

    Re: FB - Sure thing, Bust, Sleeper

    Sure thing: OU winning the south. You can ***** and moan about their lack of returning starters at key positions, but OU is ready to reload, and has the schedule to sweep the conference.

    Bust: KSU. They have a favorable schedule early in the conference and could mislead a lot of people before they hit Nebraska and Missouri, who are the two toughest teams in the north IMO. ISU is the most likely to "upset" them and send them in a downward spiral that could lead to just barely making a bowl.

    Bust 2 (my mistake!): Texas A&M -- a brutal schedule could lead to doom and gloom for the Aggies.

    Sleeper: Uh... uhhh.. OSU!

    Re: FB - Sure thing, Bust, Sleeper

    I don't know but I just have a hunch....

    Sure thing- Oklahoma runs away with the title

    Bust- Nebraska. I know this seems unlikely, but I wouldn't be surprised if they are a little lackluster this year, and seen as a bust by their fans. \

    Sleeper- Colorado. They suck, and their fans suck, but they have a good coach.
