    Re: Ranking the Big XII jobs

    Easy. Baylor won 12 games this year. Wait...that's not it

    Baylor has won more Big 12 titles than us. Nope not it either

    Better fan support? Nah.

    Better Big 12 record? More history?

If this poll was taken in 2001, we would be ahead of K-State and Baylor.

    Re: Ranking the Big XII jobs

    Anything like this has a shadow over it because of Baylor's meteoric recruiting improvement. If Baylor is the #3 job then why weren't they getting elite recruits all along? If Baylor is #3 in anything in basketball it's because of Drew (clean or dirty) not because of Baylor as a rock solid basketball program.

    Texas and Oklahoma (maybe ok state too) are the best jobs because they have resources, brand recognition, and tradition without the pressure KU comes with. Of course a guy like Self is up to the task but most coaches wouldn't be and they would come after an average coach with pitchforks after one year. Texas and OU would be more patient and less demanding of a coach.

    ISU 8th best coaching job in the Big 12.

    This could make for some interesting discussion...

    At first I thought we could and should be higher, but in taking a more objective look at the rankings it's hard to argue with the schools above us. If Colorado and Nebraska were still in the conference they would be below us, I'm quite sure.

    I have to wonder if we might be higher if it wasn't for the McDermott era as well.

    Another article were ISU gets no respect what else is new?

    I really think that OSU should be higher and Baylor should be lower.

    No offense to the op, but that ranking is a total waste of time.
