    Has this defense become the best in the Big 12?

    The guy that sits by us at games suggested that over the last month this defense has statistically become one of the best defenses in the Big 12 and has given up 7, 10, and 24 points in the last 3 games. OSU came in as the #1 offense in the country and we shut down their run game and Weeden had quiet 370 in passing yards.

    Not only did they come in at #2 but they were averaging winning by something like 40 right?

    Hard to argue against it.

    What? OSU scored 31. Not 24. Weeden had 476 yards passing. What the hell are you talking about?

    I think Weeden had around 470 yards but had 3 picks.

    Our defense has been good.

    I wouldn't count what they did against KU, but what they did against TT and OSU are impressive. Our D should be in the conversation.

    The pic six was not on the defense.

    7 of those were on a pick-6. Can't hold that against the defense, unless you want them to storm the field while the guy runs it back.

    The pick 6 would not count against the defense last night. And check KUs scores before 2 weeks ago, he said they were averaging in the mid 30s.

    Defense only gave up 24 points.

    And I'm not ready at all to say ISU has become the best defense in the Big 12 - but they certainly are playing as well as I've seen them play in a very long time, especially considering the lack of a pass rush.

    However you slice it, our defense has turned into an outstanding one.

    If an offense averages 50 points per game, and you hold them to 17 in regulation, that's pretty much outstanding.

    Yep. This and Texas Tech (who until that point had put a lot of points on the board, and we held them to 7 points) were very impressive defensive performances.

    Three in a row starts to look like a trend.
