    Look at the bright side, it took quite a few years for us to even get ranked above Kansas preseason. Don't you remember? Turner Gill was a hot commodity and of course would turn them around immediately to beat ISU. That is a given.

    This ranking has little or no meaning. People whose work includes guessing, er, predicting, such as weathermen, stock analysts, and sportscasters/writers have to predict the future, or try, because it is part of their job to do so. Don't take it as gospel.

    If OK State can actually get 2nd in the BigXII with a True Freshman QB and no Blackmon i'll be really impressed.

    I'm happily above Kansas, after all if you're not first you're last and nobody cares, unless you are as bad as Kansas was last year then people remember you.

    Hilton Coliseum was specifically built to hold in sound with a solid concrete structure, steel doors, and a crowd that sits just a few feet from the court. With a fan base that frequently ranks among the nations largest crowds, players from opposing teams, as well as Iowa State, have said that the floor has shaken due to the loudness of the crowd

    We sit above Baylor and Tech once we get midway through the season.

    I would put us 8th, can't justify putting us ahead of anyone but ku and tt. But we'll be 9th in every poll from now until conference play starts.

    The #3 spot for W.Virg. seems a bit interesting along with TCU over UT.

    The crappy big 12 defense vs. The overwhelming west virgina offense.

    As for TCU over UT, there's a small chance, because it's TEXAS THE ALMIGHTY but TCU could surprise people.
