    No major surprise. Seems to match most analyst projections for ISU.

    This season sets up as mild head-turning opportunity, I think.

    Based on the fact that RGIII won the hiesman last year and was the 2nd pick in the draft and is gone now?? And no, he wasnt your only good player. You had ganaway and wright who were studs... but there gone as well. Baylor will suck again.

    I think without RGIII they have a lot to prove. I am admittedly not much of a BU football historian, but I'd bet he's in the conversation for their best player of all time.

    Re: Media Picks ISU 8th

    It is scary to think that KU averages above a 1. Who put them in 9th and ISU or Tech in 10th?

    In 1992, one guy (Corky Simpson of the Tucson Citizen) voted Alabama #1 all the way from pre-season up to the bowls. He was the only voter to do so the entire season.

    Anyone remember the Gino Torretta Sugar Bowl? Funny stuff, he won the Heisman that year and Alabama (mostly George Teague) made him look terrible on their way to another Bama national championship.

    Moral of the story, sometimes that one guy is right along. KU might surprise some people this year.

    Baylor won't be a doormat, but won't be much more than a 500 team.

    The middle 4-8 spots are pretty much up for grabs I would say. Fairly interchangeable, IMO

    I would say he's by far and away the best player in Baylor history and nobody else is even in the same stratosphere as him.

    Re: Media Picks ISU 8th

    Improvement... two years from now everyone picks ISU 7th, two years later,6th , etc.

    It takes time and consistent improvement to change people's perception.
