    BIG XII North Rankings

    Don't know if this was posted yet: Per Ubben @ ESPN

    Big 12 Blog - ESPN

    North

    1. Nebraska (3-1)

    2. Missouri (3-1)

    3. Iowa State (3-2)

    4. Kansas State (2-3)

    T-5. Colorado (0-4)


    T-5. Kansas (0-4)
    • Nebraska obviously took control of the division this week, but guess who else controls their destiny after Missouri's loss? Oh, yes, those sneaky Cyclones up at Iowa State. I hope you packed a parka Huskers and Tigers, because the road to Arlington takes a November detour North to Ames. Nebraska's up first, trekking to Jack Trice Stadium to face the four-loss Cyclones. Missouri will follow suit in two weeks. Do I think Iowa State will win either game? Well, no. This is the same team with 41- and 52-point losses on its report card, but it'll get to play them, and two wins, plus another against Colorado would make it the North champions. The Cyclones will decide how close they get to making a shocking appearance as the North representative in the title game. Nebraska's still the safe pick to win the division, but it's not done earning it just yet.


    Note: Do you like the fact that he called us "sneaky?"

    Also, if you choose "other" for the random Tailgate food poll, what creative food are you bringin'?

    Go Cyclones! Beat Nebraska

    I like that he's finally seeming to realize that ISU is there, but while I've been impressed with DU overall, his coverage of some of the lesser teams in the Big 12 is spotty and inconsistent at best.

    Not just chili, my specialty chili - Italian Sausage and Peppers chili. Classic Italian sausage and peppers combined with a modified chili recipe - it's an outstanding dish.

    Re: BIG XII North Rankings

    I like how he phrased it all. Didn't go all "controls its own destiny" crazy but did point out the facts of the matter.

    FWIW, those are the actual standings, not his rankings, which wouldn't mean anything anyway.

    Re: BIG XII North Rankings

    Really, not a bad write-up here from Ubben. I am guessing that he will be in Ames for the game as well for pre and post game interviews/game analysis?

    Re: BIG XII North Rankings

    At first, I wasn't happy with David Ubben, but lately I've warmed up to him. He was one of the few from the start who gave the Cyclones any credit and did not put them at the bottom of the Big 12 north race. He simply stated the obvious that ISU should be improved this year, but it may not show up in the win/loss column due to the tough schedule. My only knock is what you guys have already stated, and that is the fact that we get a lack of coverage compared to other big name teams.

    Re: BIG XII North Rankings

    Any lack of coverage from Ubben is simply because the major storylines will be from those teams that have a legitimate chance to win their division. After back to back blowouts to Utah and Oklahoma, there wasn't (and really still isn't) any reason to consider Iowa State a serious contender. We get mentioned this week because, other than Nebraska, we are the only other team to control their own destiny in the North, and that is noteworthy. If we beat Nebraska, then I think we'll see a lot of articles about ISU.

    I think Ubben is probably the most fair blogger I've read. If you're not happy with his blog, I think you'd only be happy with a Cyclone homer.

    Re: BIG XII North Rankings

    Ubben typically has some good thing to say about ISU. I feel hes been in a wait and see mode with them all year, and now he can finally drop the gauntlet on what is about to go down.

    I have yet to read an article where Ubben is bad mouthing Iowa State. His opinions are respectful towards the Cyclones. I am happy with the switch.


    WE ARE IOWA STATE
