    IIRC, Ubben has been to Ames exactly one time since he took over the ESPN Big 12 blog gig -- and that was for one day of spring practice in 2010, right after he started.

    Re: ESPN - Ubben picks KSU vs Miami WK2

    As somebody else said in the comment section on the article- it should be the ISU/Iowa game but it is in Iowa City. Why go promote a Big 12 game in a Big 10 venue?

    He's going to the Ol' Miss-Texas game the next week. The game being in IC has nothing to do with it.

    I would be very surprised if that was true. He is very fair to us usually and I believe his dad actually went to ISU. I would guess that if this was a home game for us he would have picked ISU/Iowa.

    Ehh. I guess I don't really see that as a slight to us. It isn't like we had any huge marquee matchups where both teams were good. We haven't been ranked in that time. I bet if Iowa was a B12 team, he would attend that. It is just unfortunate that we have no real rivals right now in the B12 and that we haven't been very good.

    Although you are right that he hasn't attended a game since he covered the B12. Got me there.

    I just figure that a guy who's supposed to cover the entire Big 12 would at least have seen every team play.

    It's pretty evident that he won't venture north of Oklahoma unless he's forced to. BYU-Texas instead of Iowa State-Iowa? Please.

    Three straight OSU games? Nov. 5 was ISU-Kansas. No, it wasn't a sexy pick, but it would have at least allowed him to claim seeing every league team play.

    You are crazy if you think ISU Kansas should have been better than the game he went to, whatever it was.

    Just FYI from his blog post that this thread was about:
    I've been inspired by the boys at the Big Ten Blog, and this should be a fun walk through each week in the new-look Big 12 next season. I'll pick one game a week during the season that I'd attend if it were entirely up to me. I don't make the call, and things change as games are played of course, but right now, this is how it'd look if it were up to me. I'll include road nonconference games, too.
    He goes where his ESPN boss tells him to go. He has a very public love affair with Jake Knotts toughness and CPR's beard. He himself gives ISU plenty of credit.

    Stop with your reason and logic. It won't pass as currency here. He clearly doesn't like us and we must figure out why!

    I went to the KSU Miami game and honestly, it was a money game to attend....

    I don't blame him for picking big names for OOC play, cheer DU
