    Barfy's comments on ISU in his weekly Big12 North Rankings....

    I had to chuckle for a second when reading this. LB covers the Big12 pretty well and isn't a Nebraska homer as many would think despite working for the omaha rag.

    The OWH provides pretty good coverage of the Big12. So, being here in CO, I don't see the DSM rag in print and reading it online it's hard to tell how articles are displayed, but does it have a day of the week when it covers the Big 11 and Big 12 the way the OWH covers the Big12? One would think considering Iowa is the only state with a school in each conference.

    Lee Barfknecht's Big 12 Rankings


    1. Nebraska (2-0): Last week: Beat Wake Forest 20-17. Up next: USC, 7 p.m., ABC. Any road win is a good win. Keep repeating that as you ponder whether the spotty performance at Wake Forest will hurt NU's confidence for USC.

    2. Missouri (2-0): Last week: Beat Mississippi 38-25. Up next: Western Michigan, 1 p.m. Yes, the Tigers are undefeated. They also have given up 435 yards and 534 yards to two teams that last season were a combined 6-18.

    3. Kansas State (1-1): Last week: Beat San Jose State 34-14. Up next: Missouri State, 6 p.m. The Wildcats hope to use this week and next week's open date as dress rehearsals for the Big 12 opener Sept. 29 at Texas.

    4. Kansas (2-0): Last week: Beat Southeastern Louisiana 62-0. Up next: Toledo, 6 p.m. If the new-and-improved Jayhawks get past Kansas State on Oct. 6, they could be 7-0 going to Texas A&M in late October.

    5. Colorado (1-1): Last week: Lost to Arizona State 33-14. Up next: Florida State, 9 p.m., ESPN. How's the excitement level in Boulder for this week's home opener against a "name" opponent? About 3,000 tickets are still available.

    6. Iowa State (0-2): Last week: Lost to Northern Iowa 24-13. Up next: Iowa, 12:30 p.m., Versus. Now that football is essentially over, note that the men's basketball team opens Nov. 9 at home against Winston-Salem State.

    I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.
