    ISU ranked 2nd best B12 LBers

    Big 12 position rankings: Linebackers - Big 12 Blog - ESPN

    According to Ubben. Nothing new, just a little recognition.

    Anybody else notice the kid from Texas Tech? He was ours for a while then switched his committment. Just think if we had him, we would be stacked at LB.

    I should be used to it I guess.

    Of those groups, other than LB, what would he have praised ISU for? Not like we have tons of experience or production coming back in those other 3 groups.

    I didn't say he should have praised us for any of those nor that I disagreed with him necessarily, I was just merely pointing out that it was the first recognition we have received in his analysis thus far.

    Well, our QBs are VERY inexperienced, our WRs/TEs have been the worst part of our offense the last few years and lost the 2 best players, and our RBs while looking VERY solid in their limited playing opportunities have had just that: limited playing time.

    I feel Ubben has been very fair to us here.

    I thought your comment of "I should be used to it I guess" implied that ISU was yet again getting the shaft when it came to recognition. My bad if that's not what you meant.

    That's fair. I didn't mean it that way, just that I am used to ISU not getting recognition for football, whether we deserve it or not.

    Apparently I worded my initial response in a way everyone thought I disagreed...

    My bad

    Nice recognition for those kids, but am I the only one who finds it odd that when a blogger badmouths ISU he's looked at as a "stupid know nothing blogger" with no credibility but when they give us praise everyone is in agreement.

    Are you new here? haha.

    I feel like the old guy didn't care at all about ISU, but Ubben does a good job giving us credit where it is due. The only other category in his position rankings I disagree with is he has our RBs ranked dead last. I understand that none of our backs have much if any experience other than some spot carries, but the depth and talent is there. I don't know much about other teams RBs but I think we are in a better situation than at least a couple teams.

    But then again, it is hard for a national writer to rank us any higher without any prior proof to go off of.

    Re: ISU ranked 2nd best B12 LBers

    I vehemently disagree that Iowa State has the worst running backs in the league. Unfortunately, there's little evidence to support the strength of our RB corps beyond Shontrelle's 6.2 ypc as a 3rd stringer and Woody having his niche that doesn't exactly make your eyes pop statistically. Combine that with the fact that 5 other teams in the league lost their starting running back, and I find it hard to believe we're the worst. But, again, it's hard to find an overwhelming amount of data to support that claim.
